The island of Koh Samui is not only known for its stunning beaches and exciting water sports, but also its rich heritage which can be experienced with visits to such sites as the Sawadee Shrine. Before heading to such sites of interest it is best to find a suitable hotel in Samui to base yourself at. One such Koh Samui resort worth considering is Anantara Lawana Resort & Spa Koh Samui which enjoys a seaside location on Chaweng Beach.
Plan a trip to Sawadee Shrine in Koh Samui which is dedicated to the Brahma who is believed to be the one who created all things. Symbolising mercy, impartiality, sympathy and kindness, the Brahma is worshipped by both local and foreign devotees. This relatively small shrine with its gold coloured image and small elephants at its base is nevertheless worth seeing, especially when devotees are present offering prayers and paying obeisance.
