    Peak Eye View Restaurant

    by SamuiDean Updated Sep 22, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is situated on one of the highest points of the island. At over 600 metres above sea level it offers great views of the Samui coastline. It is easy to reach. There is a tarmac road which leads you all the way. The road is steep in places so be prepared to get into 1st or 2nd gear when driving up there. The restaurant offers a selection of Thai food and drinks. You sit outside overlooking the views. Very relaxing.

    Drive along the main ring road between Nathon and Lamai and you will see a signpost.

    Surat Palm Resort

    The second place I just love is the restaurant of Surat Palm Resort. I guess your wondering why I dont put my two tips on the restaurants, but its not their food or drink i love. Its not the service or the people working there, Its the view. I almost go here every day when Im in Lamai and eat my breakfast, have a coffe, some lunch or a banana milkshake. It so wonderful to just sit and look at the whole bay of Lamai and the few people coming to the end of the Lamai beach. You just must not miss this place. Come here alone and just sit for a hour and enjoy beeing alive. This is what lifes about.

    Get A Henna Tattoo

    They are not very expensive and look great! I had one done. It took a little while to do, but it turned out wonderful. The best thing is that they are not permanent, but stay on about 3- 4 weeks. This is the one i had done. If i were to have a real one done it would probably look like this.

    you will come across lotz of shophouses along the chaweng beach walkway displaying thai painting. i could carry one back to my hometown but the problem is i'm a careless backpacker. i might misplace it somewhere during my trip...sigh... just like my sand paper lamp...

    One of my best experiences on samui was hiring a jeep and travelling around the island
    Not really knowing where I was going, I decided to go inland and stumbled across a rather rough road(I mean rough)that took me atop Lamai mountain. This was a really fantastic surprise, the view is truly amazing, all the surrounding islands & landscape make this a very worthwhile experience

    Muslim Village

    by Pat&ZoAnn Written Apr 1, 2003

    On the South East corner of Samui (south of Lamai Beach) is the Muslim Village. We saw pictures of the colourful fishing boats here. Our picture lost a lot of the colour, but they were impressive never the less.

    Southernmost Point

    This pagoda is on the southernmost point of Ko Samui. There is a very peaceful meditation garden here, with signs of buddhist-type sayings placed on the trees throughout. All in English, though.
