    This temple is little noticed and no tourists but if that's your thing a visitor to do. Surely you can do a prayer without being disturbed is a lot of pictures

    I must say I was surprised by the polite Wat Samret. A very peaceful place to just wander around. There is a slightly mysterious room filled with buddha statues, the largest of which, with its 3 line defines rumored to be purchased from India. The area has gained the highest and the oldest tree on the whole Koh Samui, it is over 30 meters high and over 500 years old. Well worth a visit!

    It's a quite temple with a school and graveyard attached. Skip it if you're pressed for time.

    From all popular on the island temples I'd better visited unpopular! Sit in the temple with a multitude of Buddhas, it was something magical for me and this was the first temple that I snagged. And a huge tree in the territory.
