Your private tour will begin in the late afternoon with pickup from your accommodation. Before heading to your first destination, you’ll make a quick stop in a colorful evening market and stroll through the many kiosks with vendors selling their produce and wares. If you want to do a bit of souvenir or snack shopping, this is the place. Next up are the Hin Ta Hin Yai rock formations, one of the most famous rock formations on the island. Listen as your friendly guide tells you about the local legend behind the natural scenery. Snap photos of the fascinating shapes, and don’t forget to take in the glorious views of the sea.  The next stop is Laem Sor Pagoda. Perched on a rock jutting out to sea, this gleaming golden pagoda is known for its picturesque backdrop. It's the perfect place to watch the sun set on the horizon.

What people are saying about Laem Sor Pagoda

We had a very good gide. We had much fun, interesting conversation about Samui, Thailand and the life. He was very well informed and showed us nice places. The dinner has been very romantic. We also liked the night market afterwards. Authentic Thai food. So safe some space in your stomache to enjoy after dinner on the beach. Thanks a lot.

Our guide Pek took us off the beaten track and tailored our tour to what we would like to see. He was knowledgable friendly and fun. The Thai meal at sunset was delicious along with a helping of mango sticky rice (small extra cost). A great way of finding out more about the island and Thai culture.

The yoga lesson was amazing in front of the sea! The teacher was very professional! The private tour was very nice and the guide was very helpful and interesting in his explanation about the culture and places.
