A beautiful hotel. Very pretty large area: well-groomed, a lot of vegetation, fountains, paths, flowers, a pond with fish, everywhere in the evening candles and festoons. The relaxed, home, romantic and intimate atmosphere. The hotel is at the beach of Bophut, on the opposite end of the Fisherman Village (far enough). Around the hotel restaurants and small shops. The first night we went to dinner walk to Fisherman Village (20-25 minutes). After that rented the bike at the hotel))) In Fisherman Village a large number of restaurants to suit all tastes, shops, massage. The hotel has an excellent restaurant. At a dinner party all the tables are always busy, so you need to book a table in advance. ...Read More

Butterfly Garden is located in the southern part of the island, not far from Natien Beach and is a corner of tropical nature, in which hundreds of fluttering butterflies.Entrance is 170 baht per person.The Garden is located on a hillside, so all the interesting places you can really get just the steps. Scattered in the park gazebo, observation sites, waterfalls, huge boulders.Considering all this beauty and fluttering butterflies, we gradually climbed up a mountain.I was surprised that the butterflies for some reason was not enough: I had thought that they are there a lot, like bees in a hive. Maybe because the weather was cloudy? They love the sun. But instead of occasio...Read More

Wat Khunaram (Wat Khun Aram)

Attraction | "Buddhist monk Luang Pho Daeng"

One day, a ride to the temple of Wat Khunaram. It's a church not far from the waterfalls Nyamuang, where since 1975 sits Buddhist monk Luang Pho Daeng, who after the death samomumifitsirovalsya is in Thailand at all fashionable among the monks. His date of death, by the way, he predicted in advance, so the surprise for others was not. Surrounded by the gifts he sits on a pedestal behind glass, showing an example of the limitless possibilities of internal self-organization of this Buddhist.
For obvious reasons, he sits in the glasses. And clothes him, apparently, regularly updated.
Near rebuilt another beautiful church, the details of his being unknown to me, just beautiful.

After becoming acquainted with the wonders of the Buddhists, we planned to get to the secret place Secret Buddha Garden, which is high on the mountain. Garden is very interesting, many different sculptures right in the jungle ... but steep climb up the mountain made their adjustments - our Yamaha died far to mid-rise. Had it at idle to close, and by walking up, realizing that the way up we did not get there. Suddenly we came across a pointer to the waterfall, which had not previously heard of. We parked the bike and walked away from the main road along the path. Came almost to the fabulous stone, indicating the direction, though it was one thing.Do nothing, I had to go in the direction indicated...Read More

The hotel is chosen by price-quality relationship and because of its secluded location, since went to rest, and not to hang out. The hotel is the latest on Chaweng Noi beach on the rocky hill. Consists of individual cottages, villas, standing in three rows along the ring road and the sea on the other side. The cheapest rooms are on the line closest to the highway, including they can be noisy. We lived in a villa on the median line - machine was sometimes heard, but not much and we did not pay attention to it. The beach begins right at the hotel, but at this point the solid rocks and makes a lot of rubbish surf. Need to pass 30 meters away and can swim very well. Lounges at the hotel enough (near...Read More
