Explore Laem Sor in Koh Samui

The absolutely stunning area of Laem Sor is in the depths of the south of the island, generally  considered as a hidden gem, as it is a small and quiet community. The main tourist attraction is the temple ‘Pagoda’. This well- preserved, eye catching monument which appears golden in the sunlight, however it is in fact built with yellow tiles, which gives off the dazzling effect. This beautiful temple is a recommended place to spend your time if you are looking to see culture, grand designs, as well as having a relaxed day out.

This area is relatively undiscovered in comparison to other beach resorts east of the island. Laem Sor is a location where the outdoors allows tourists and locals to see the beauty of nature. There is a largely outdoor living concept, where excursions include hiking and natural elements such as visiting a butterfly garden and insect museum. Appreciating the tranquillity of the island is key and being able to relax is a guarantee.

Lamai, the closest town is a fifteen minute drive, giving tourists access to a Tesco Lotus supermarket, various shops, bars and many excellent restaurants. This has a lively and energetic vibe, contrasting to the undisturbed and calm area of Laem Sor.
