For authenticity and serenity lovers, a must-go-to spot on Samui island is a place called Laem Sor Pagoda. Located on the seaside and not at all far from our resort, Laem Sor Pagoda offers a restful place where you can get away and renew yourself. Here you will meet monks and enjoy the tranquility that reigns over this special place.
You can even practice your photography skills as you will have countless opportunities to click pictures of the 28 Buddha statues that are spread over the area. Or you could simply just come to meditate… As a matter of fact, at around 6pm, there are meditation sessions that you can attend with the local monks, and at the same time watch the sun set on the gold, shimmering tiles of the pagoda. A guaranteed spectacle!
Laem Sor Pagoda can also echo a more spiritual approach to bringing early morning offerings to the monks to meditate, following with a moment of prayer. Laem Sor Pagoda takes the road less travelled by offering tourists an authentic cultural break in all its breathtaking beauty. It features Buddha relics that date from the twentieth century; the various states of its completion are written in both Thai and English for tourists. Laem Sor Pagoda is a landmark not to be missed. And remember… Seek inner peace!
If for you, holidays are a time for relaxation, Thai massages offer an interesting alternative to pamper not only your body, but also your mind. L’essayez, c’est aussi l’adopter! (???) Taking this time out for yourself will allow you to reap many benefits and reawaken all your senses, helping you to recuperate and relax.
Your body will be in experienced hands, as Thai massages are something that cannot be improvised and are only performed by professionals. The massages are not of sexual nature, and your body will merely be subjected to pressure amounts specific to your needs. Your masseur/masseuse may use either his/her hands, elbows, or even feet in order to help you release any tensions that you may be experiencing.
You will have many different types of Thai massages at your disposal, from neck massages to feet, all of which last approximately an hour on average. So pick the one that is best for you and allow yourself to relax. However, do not be fooled – the best salons are not necessarily the ones that look the most luxurious.
And remember… Seek inner peace!
