If you are in Ko Samui is a place you must visit, only 10 min walking from Big Budha. Impressive temples , beautiful architecture. Words cant describe the experience.

Less well know but far more beautiful than the Big Buddha, this complex was 10 minutes up the road, free to enter and we were able to walk around at our leisure. Only one souvenir shop here, so we ended up going back to the...More

Me and a friend had rented bikes to see a bit more of the island. Very peaceful and beautiful temples, the highlight however was feeding the fish in the lake. For only 10 baht you get fish food and can feed the fish.

It's always best to dress modestly according to Thai expectations when visiting a temple. Females can pack a sarong to put over shorts. Some temples have items available to purchase or borrow. It's considered rude in Thailand to have bare arms even outside the temples. I wouldn't wear any tops that don't at least have a cap sleeve or short sleeve. Thai people are so kind they may not say anything to you, but if you are showing your shoulders, belly, or lots of leg (outside of the beach area) it truly is offensive.
