The tourist magnet Koh Samui in Thailand is an island belonging to Surat Thani province and surrounded by sixty other islands out of which some are popular tourist destinations. This circular shaped island contains an almost deserted mountain jungle, Khao Pom. The island’s capital Nathon is a major port for inter-island transportation and fishing. There are a lot of extraordinary attractions which convey the islands’ culture and charm, but the Secret Buddha Garden takes the spot on any given day.
Invitingly stunning, Secret Buddha Garden was built by a Samuian fruit farmer named Nim Thongsuk sometime in 1976. Surrounded by rocky hills and jungles, the garden may be hard to reach but it hasn’t become a hindrance for the visitors to Koh Samui. Taking part in one of the tours conducted in the area provides the opportunity to visit other close by tourist attractions of Koh Samui as well. Another major attraction on the path to the Secret Buddha Garden is the island’s highest point which overlooks some of the most magnificent views surrounding the region.
The Secret Buddha Garden is adorned with structures and sculptures depicting various deities and humans in different poses while some sculptures are of animals, all of which enhance the magical atmosphere. Observing these amazing creations will make you wonder how much patience, courage, determination and creativity the builder must have had. The two hours that the journey to this serene garden takes is utterly worth it. The garden is surrounded by trees providing shade and flowers adding more beauty.
Also known as the “magic garden”, the only way to approach this place is through the jungle, mountains and rivers by a four-wheel-drive jeep, which in itself will be an exciting experience. But for the ones who prefer to use the “easy” way, it is possible to book a trip with the island’s travel agency.
