Beach Front Villa, Laem Sor, Koh Samui, Thailand

Koh Samui, Laem Sor, Travel Guide

Laem Sor is famous for its ancient pagoda.

This beach-front chedi may be the most beautiful place on the island.  The chedi is actually rather old, but restored just a few years ago with glazed tiles that have a mustard color probably meant to be look like gold. Next to the chedi is a small ´meditation forest´ of trees with places to sit and even a few tables. Surrounding the forest on two sides is a man-made lagoon with some mangrove trees planted along the ocean side. On Buddhist holy days, monks and lay people will come fill the forest and grounds in a festival atmosphere. The rest of the time, it is a quiet and beautiful spot for a picnic.

In front of the Pagoda the beach is quite rocky and wild, with great chunks of driftwood thrown about.  To the east of the chedi, the beach is a bit more sandy.

This stretch of quiet beach has just a few private homes on it allowing it to retain its tropical serenity overlooking the islands of Koh Matsum and Koh Taen.
