Please dress properly and show respect because the pagoda is sacred and local people still do prayer there. The pagoda is surrounded by the beach, both very beautiful. Worth a visit!

This temple is on the southern coast of Ko Samui. Rather removed from everywhere else, it requires determination to get to it. But it is worth it. Located on a really quiet stretch of beach overlooking the water, it is a beautiful temple definitely worth visiting. Recommended as part of a trip to the Namuang Waterfall.

The Pagoda is difficult to find, so it would be best to either have a very detailed map or a local driver (we had the latter). The Pagoda gives you a lovely view over the Island and you will find yourself mostly alone there. The monks are nice and very helpful if you ever happen to feel lost.

After a little bit of hunting for this Pagoda we finally manged to find it (the maps arent great!) it is really beautiful and situated right on the beach. Once you have wandered around and had your fill of cultre you can walk right along the beach, a beautiful place to spend a few hours.

Laem Sor Pagoda is absolutely stunning. Well out of the way down in the South of Koh Samui but worth a visit. The views out to sea are beautiful and it's a striking Pagoda, shining bright yellow in the sun. When we went the monks had lots of really REALLY cute little puppies they were feeding. There's not much else... More

This place is indeed a hidden gem on Samui. Its located on the southern spot on the island. Can perhaps be dificult to find withouth a good road map or a local driver. Its a totally relaxed place without other tourist and an absolute fantastic sea view to the south. Do stop for a view if you are on the... More

We did the Laem Sor Pagoda as part of a day trip visiting temples and religious sites along the south coast of Koh Samui, hiring a taxi for about 1500 bht ($48) for the trip (3-4 hours). Wat Laem Sor lies at the most southerly part of the island, a temple area apparently constructed in the shape of a boat... More
