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!
