Na Mueang Waterfall 2.

Na Mueang Waterfall 1 & 2.

Over everything, I think we are waterfall lovers at heart. We took a trip around 10am to Na Mueang 2 waterfall during a cloudy day. The hike itself was tiring however we did it in Birkenstocks so it is possible however we recommend good footwear for this. As you get to the top you see the most incredible jungle overlapping a huge part of Koh Samui. You can even take a dip in the rock formation that is shaped like a mini pool and watch the world go by. This is a must if you visit Koh Samui.

TIP: It’s located by an elephant camp which we don’t condone. Entrance fee is 100Baht per person and the car park is 20Baht.

Overlap Stone Viewpoint.

Having heaps of fun at the viewpoint.

This viewpoint is the best place to see Koh Samui and it’s beaches. It’s a short walk from where you drop the scooter off and it’s not full of crowds as it’s only a small viewpoint. However, when you finally get around the rock it’s a view that will take your breath away.

TIP: Overlap Stone is located in someones back garden so make sure you leave a donation as a thank you!

We spoke with a friend today about the word attachment and what it means to be attached. πŸ’­ But also how travelling can teach you one of life’s biggest lessons… To let go of being attached. πŸ’« It is so important to learn the art of detachment and to understand that you are your own being and you are not controlled by any attachments towards people or objects. πŸ™πŸΌ Some people say true happiness is found within detachment and that being able to live carefree can lead to a healthier and happier life. πŸ™‚ What are your thoughts? #bohemiantravels #mindfultravel #thailand #travelcouple – Blog in bio. πŸ‘« – For more wellbeing and mindfulness. @tillyyoga πŸ§˜πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ

We found this beach whilst exploring the island one morning and ended up spending the whole day there. It’s clear and crystal waters radiate relaxation from all its visitors. There’s a restaurant located on the seafront so there’s no need to leave for a bite to eat either. With the rock formation located on the corner of the beach, you could spend hours climbing around and diving in all of the different ocean spots. Perfect for a beach day!

TIP: This beach is a local favorite so there are very little tourists here. Perfect if you want a calm and relaxing day without the crowds.

Wat Plai Laem Temple.

Koh Samui isn’t known for it’s fantastic temples however there is one we do recommend visiting if you pass by. Wat Plai Laem is a huge Buddhist temple located on the far east of the island. Its main statue is not of Gautama Buddha but of Guanyin, the “goddess” of compassion and mercy. Full of colours and beauty this a great sight to see on sunny day.

TIP: Arrive early to avoid the crowds.

Lipa Noi Beach. 

Catching a dreamy sunset at Lipa Noi.

If you’re into beach walks, this is the place for you. This beach stretches along the whole coast and surrounded by white sand and palm trees you won’t ever want to leave. Picturesque seems to be the perfect word to describe this beach. This is where you will find many of your water sports activities too. Jet skiing is most popular here as you have miles and miles of sea water to play with. We also recommend sticking around for sunset as for the last few hours of daylight here are something made of magic.

Yoga at Vikasa.

The perfect place to sweat or find your zen is Vikasa studio located on the coast of Koh Samui. The main view of the studio overlooks the sea and provides you with 4 classes per day, you will be finding peace within no time. With experienced teachers from all over the world, a cafe serving only the freshest, organic food and a health store to supply you with all of your health needs you will never want to leave this paradise.

TIP: It’s not backpacker friendly if you’re on a budget however it is definitely worth your time and money if you have 500Baht to spare for one class.

Chaweng Beach.

Lazing around on Chaweng Beach.

This is the main strip located on Koh Samui, where you can find all of your backpacker food joints and bars. This beach is quiet by day and crazy by night so make sure you bring your party hats if you’re planning on visiting as the bars usually stay open until late. This beach is not only just for backpackers as during the day it’s one of the most beautiful beaches on Koh Samui and recommend a visit for some down time.

Rent a Scooter.

Most things to do on the island require some form of transport. If you’re following a backpacker budget we recommend either renting out a scooter from your hotel or hostel as it’s the easiest way to get around. If budgeting isn’t your thing you can opt for local taxis as they’re also cheap and also more luxury than driving around on a scooter. As for pubic transport we didn’t take any buses but we heard it’s not the easiest way of transportation if you wanted to go to the more secluded spots. However great if you’re heading to the main areas on the island.
