Ko Samui is a beautiful place that has a large number of eye-pleasing places. One of them is the Secret Buddha Garden. This is an old garden that was made in 1976 by Nim Thongsuk who was a hardworking farmer. He took long years to...More

Amazing time to spend half day.The secret garden is hidden away from prying eyes, and is tucked into the hills of Samui’s interior. It is closely guarded by the most unusual trove of statues that you may ever see. The garden is surrounded by lush...More

Our friends and I traveled here on our second to last day. We had a good time! If you aren’t aware there is an entrance fee/admission fee of 80 baht I believe. We had a great time going through the garden. Someone near the front...More

Visited as part of a tour. Steep walk down the steps but easily manageable. Could spend ages here taking the sheer scale of it in. Mammoth amount of work. Small shop at the entrance.

We were staying close by so it wasn't a big deal to come here, but I wouldn't recommend anyone travel far to come here. We found it quite dark and a bit eerie and were in and out in under 10 minutes. There was nothing...More

80baht for a 5 min slippery walk among concrete sculptures and concrete houses. Completely pointless and not worth spending your money here. Nothing secret here. Total scam.

A must visit place if you have a means of transportation at your disposal. Really pleasant ride up and back with terrific views of the island. The garden itself is surreal, and extremely photogenic. Tip: Don't forget to carry mosquito repellent or you'll rush out...More
