Laem Sor Pagoda, Maret

(4.2/5 based on 70+ reviews on the web)
Head to the southwest corner of the island to admire Laem Sor Pagoda, a golden pagoda. Sitting at the end of a rocky beach, the pagoda possesses a shimmering gold sheen (though its exterior is actually made from yellow-colored tiles) that stands out strikingly against the blueness of the water behind it. The main pagoda provides plenty of angles for photography and, because this is a relatively little-known attraction, this quiet spot offers an atmosphere of reverence and contemplation that can be hard to find at other religious sites on the island.
