My Trip to Koh Samui - Day 2 at East Coast

Hey! Shane here again 🤩 Surely you would have enjoyed my trip to the Northeast of Koh Samui.
As part of my ongoing Koh Samui Day Trip series, here’s a treat on how you can explore and have fun on the entire east coast of Koh Samui in just a single day! And because it is such a large island, it is impossible to see all the best places of interest and its stunning attractions in a limited time. 

So, put your shoes on to check out the East Coast of Koh Samui with my recommendations from day 2 of my adventure-filled trip.


The Bear Travel  Trivia!

A bridge between Koh Samui and mainland Nakhon Si Thammarat Province was proposed in 2020 that will span 18 Km in length.


8:30 am: Morning Stroll along Choeng Mon Beach

Situated on the northeast of Koh Samui, Choeng Mon Beach is famous for its tranquillity. And a morning stroll along this remote beach is the ideal way I started off my day on the Koh Samui day trip 🤩. 


10:30 am: Wat Plai Laem - The White Buddha

On the road from Choeng Mon to Chaweng, I visited the beautiful Wat Plai Laem Temple and saw the imposing White Buddha image. This is a great way to see cultural Thailand at its best and not to be missed when you are here.


12:00 Midday: Lunch at the Islander Restaurant – Chaweng

After the morning’s activities, I enjoyed a spot of lunch 🤩 at the excellent value for money Islander Restaurant situated in central Chaweng. No Koh Samui day trip is complete without visiting a quality restaurant. 


The Bear Travel  Fun Fact!

The east coast of Koh Samui is no less beautiful than the rest of it and the sandy beaches offer a calming stroll along the blue waters. The waterfalls are numerous and the elephant ride across the jungle is one of a kind experience.


1:30 pm: Lat Ko (Lad Koh) Viewpoint – Between Chaweng Noi and Lamai Beach

Heading from Chaweng Noi Beach to Lamai on the beautiful coastal roads, I came across the stunning Lat Ko Viewpoint. Here you can gaze out across the ocean from an elevated viewpoint and take in the panorama during your Thailand holiday. 


3:00 pm: Namuang Waterfall

West of Lamai within close proximity to Ban Thurian, I reached the scenic waterfalls of Namuang at around 3:00 pm. There are numerous waterfalls to enjoy. I took a 45-minute elephant trek through the dense jungle vegetation and riding on top of this majestic beast was one of the best experiences in my life 🤩.


The Bear Travel  Did You Know?

Arriving in and from Koh Samui is an adventure in itself and a unique experience. one can either arrive by ferry or on a flight from Phuket and other Thai destinations. 


5:00 pm: Beach Republic – Lamai Beach

By this time, I was ready to put up my feet and enjoy a relaxing evening meal and a tipple. The Beach Republic is situated at the north end of Lamai Beach, offering a wondrous location to sit Oceanside while sipping on a cocktail or a snack with the sea just meters away. 


I hope all this information can help you explore the East Coast of the island in a single day! 

Also, I believe that by now, you have already found some quality and useful information from my 2-Day Koh Samui trip. So, till my next trip then. Cheers! 🤩
