  • Seating buddha is one of the most visited places on Koh Samui. I can recommend the trip with car, the road is bit hard for bikes or motorbikes.  more »
  • Last year we went there and this returned. Took car rental and skated around the island, tried to visit all. Here is a very nice view, quiet and almost no tourists. Highly recommend to schedule a trip here. Be careful to clothing, the shoulders should be closed and the ladies skirt below the knees. We were in the car the pareo and towels, they rescued the situation. When climbing behind the wheel be careful, the road is narrow and steep with sharp turn

Where to stay in Taling Ngam

When planning a Ko Samui holiday, Taling Ngam appeals for its tranquil, calm environs in comparison to the rest of the island. This relatively remote locale offers a number of luxury 3- to 5-star beachfront hotels and resorts with amenities and trappings such as swimming pools, annexed restaurants, food, and beverages on-demand. Due to its secluded, exclusive nature, Taling Ngam appeals more to families than budget-conscious backpackers.
