Wat Khao Chedi, Ko Samui

4.8
#6 of 17 in Historic Sites in Ko Samui
Hike uphill to reach Wat Khao Chedi, a Chinese-Thai-style pagoda whose golden facade glitters in the sunlight. The temple reflects Srivijaya architecture and overlooks the area, offering excellent vistas of the bay and villages nearby. Take a turn around the temple to view the sculptures and monuments of Buddha. Refreshingly untouristy, the spot makes a perfect place to meditate in peace.

Us, is by foot and the reward, is that we were all alone. And it's beautiful, serene, calm, majestic. A beautiful view on the 2 Islands (Kao Tan and Kao Mat Som) and Bang Kao Bay. Beautiful white chedi, with front a buddha lying. Do
