The Most Picturesque Locations on Samui

Koh Samui is a place filled with wonderful views, sights and adventures. When you go on holiday, taking pictures and videos to remember the experience is vital. To make this easier for you, we thought it would be a great idea to create a list of some of the most picturesque places on the island - to help you get as many likes on your Instagram post as possible!

#1 Paradise Park Farm:

Hidden in the deepest depths of the jungle on the hills of Samui, Paradise Park Farm is one of the Island’s hidden treasures. We discovered the park on our safari trip in the jungle and were wonderfully surprised by the stunning views we encountered.

On a lovely summer’s day you will be greeted by the farm’s lovely farm animals including deers, ponies and even pink pigeons! Walk through the farm and you will stumble upon the pool and the wonderful blues of the sea in front of it. We took some great photos here and you definitely should too! Our trip to the farm was one of the highlights of our travels and aside from being one of the most picturesque places on the island, it’s also a great day out - so if you and your family/friends are looking for things to do you definitely give this place a visit!

#2 Lamai View Point:

We were lucky enough to experience this place for ourselves, and not once were we not captivated by the scenery. A worthwhile mention has to be given out to Funny Fish Spa too at the base of the waterfall, where you can enjoy the tiny little fish giving you the giggles as they clean the dead skin of your feet - p.s. It is super ticklish! Instead of writing about how good the view is, I’ll let the pictures below do the talking. Needless to say, this should be on your hitlist.

#3 Na Muang Waterfall:

This post would not be complete, without including Na Muang Waterfall. Na Muang stands out from the rest because it is not everyday that you get to see, experience and dive into a waterfall! When visiting here, I would definitely recommend bringing GoPro with you as that is the only way to truly capture the experience. You will be able to record, the wonderful surroundings as well as take in the tranquility offered by the sounds of the water hitting the surface at the waterfall. After taking your pictures and recording your videos on a hot summer’s day in Thailand, there is nothing quite like taking a refreshing dip into the waterfall straight after!

Honorable Mentions:

Some honorable mentions have to be made out to High Park and Jungle Club which are both fantastic places. High Park is a fantastic day out with friends and if you are brave enough to take on the waterslide you will be launched 1000000 metres into the air (this is what it felt like at least!) where for a split second you will be blown away by views of the whole island.

While The Jungle Club, doesn’t just offer a great view of the island but also fantastic food to fill those cravings! If you go here, you definitely have to try their burgers they are second to none!

Another recommendation that I would have to make is to take a safari into the jungle and experience the serenity you feel when you reach the depths and heights of the jungle. I hope you enjoyed this post and wish you a fantastic time on your travels!
