The Best Landscapes In Thailand
Thailand is a very photogenic country. A place where you won’t be satisfied with just seeing its spectacular landscapes live, but you will feel an irremediable need to leave them for posterity with your mobile phone or camera. Take note of the best landscapes in Thailand that you can’t miss.
El Gran Buda de Koh Samui
This big 12-meter high golden statue (so large that it can be seen from the airplane window) represents the Buddha and is one of the most visited and photographed tourist attractions of the island of Koh Samui. Located inside the small Buddhist temple of Wat Phra Yai which is accessed by a small dirt road that connects to this tiny island, the statue sits on top of a platform that looks down from above towards the north coast of Ko Samui.
The view from Wat Khao Hua Jook Temple
From the small Wat Khao Hua temple and you can appreciate a 360º view of the whole island of Koh Samui. After climbing up the road, you will still have to walk another section of the road up a long circular staircase. An effort that will be worthwhile because of the panoramic view of the temple. Another good alternative with very good views of the coast is the Lad Koh viewpoint.
Hin Lad Waterfall
From there you can see amazing emerald landscapes and dark natural formations known as Grandfather and Grandfather rocks. Another photogenic place where you can also take a refreshing bath.
Laem Pagoda Sister
Covered with yellowish-ochre tiles, the Laem Sor Pagoda is a spectacle even from a distance. Its golden surface shines from afar as if the entire Pagoda were covered with liquid gold. One of the most impressive places in Thailand.
Ang Thong National Marine Park
Probably one of the most famous images and one of the best landscapes in Thailand, the Ang Thong National Marine Park (also known as Mu Ko Ang Thong) is made up of 42 protected virgin islands that leave a spectacular landscape. They are islands on which it is not possible to build, so they retain their original charm.
