Silanu Temple is made of red clay. It is the most unique temple on Koh Samui. No matter when, from any angle, it always looks bright and colorful. The wall of deep burgundy is impressive, and the murals and carvings on the temple walls are exquisite, and the craftsmanship details of each statue are exquisite. The carvings on the top of the temple and on each window and beam are very beautiful and very Thai style.  The temple is small, but it is full of beautiful statues. The interior is mainly composed of various murals, and in the middle is a golden Buddha statue. The interior murals, although not aware of the story, are touched by these beautiful works. Opposite the red temple, there is also a golden stupa, which is equally dazzling in the sun.

The best sunbathing beach in Koh Samui: Chaweng Beach. It is the perfect beach on the whole island of Samui, a variety of bars, resorts, along with sand beaches. A few kilometers of crescent-shaped sunny beaches, lush green trees, beautiful women in bikinis and guys lying on the beach. This place is definitely a paradise for vacationers. According to the locals', Chaweng Beach has always been the number one beach in their hearts. They all say that the beauty of the resort island is related to the weather. Because of the rainy season, it often rains continuously for a few days, and it is rare to see the blue sky even for one day. Baiyun, the Chaweng beach under the sun is also very beautiful, and people can't wait to dive into the sea immediately.

Big Buddha Temple is one of the landmarks of Koh Samui and the most famous temple in the area. In fact, the temple is very small, and a golden Buddha with a height of 12 meters is enshrined in the middle. Because there is no high-rise building on Koh Samui, this golden Buddha statue can be seen from the air and nearby open space. After a long flight of stairs, in the front is the place where the Buddha is located. The Big Buddha Temple is mainly surrounded by a small square around the Buddha. From the corridor on the side of the Big Buddha statue, you can also see the scenery of Bo Phut Beach, which is an excellent place to watch the sunset from. There is also a four-faced Buddha below the statue of the Buddha. Although it is not as popular as tourist attractions in Bangkok, some people still come here to worship.

Koh Tao English name is Ko Tao. It used to be the habitat of turtles and looks like a shape of tortoise from Koh Phangan. It is also known as Turtle Island, near Koh Samui. It is also a famous paradise for scuba and deep-dive training centers and diving enthusiasts in Southeast Asia. Koh Tao not only has a colorful underwater world and a wide variety of marine life, but also a diving school with a very high rate of certification. At the same time, the price is very affordable, the sea is warm, and the ocean current is moderate, which is very suitable for lessons. The facilities on the island are also very good, so it is the right place to learn to dive! Lessons, also include three-day crash, tuition fees more than 2,000, and some include accommodation, senior can get a certificate for five days. Compared to the 6K~8K of Semporna and the 3K~4K of the Philippines, the price of the diving certificate for Koh Tao is way too beneficial! After taking a night train in Bangkok, from Khao San Road, I arrived at Koh Tao by boat. Many travel agencies on Khao San Road have related services so that you can consult several more.
