The temples of each country are different to the other. The people of Thailand are predominantly Buddhist, and they place great emphasis on this way of life. They are ritualistic people and partake in many traditions and practices to invoke blessings, solve problems and receive good luck. The temples in Koh Samui support this belief and one can find as many as twenty of them in this small landmass.
Many of the temples are beautiful to see and are draped in a blanket of tranquillity and serenity. The profound silence that is complimented with the occasional chant and chime of bells only adds to the allure. Whilst you roam around the temples let the waft of incense smoke surround you as the blessings of the Ancients are received.
