Beautiful Lamai Beach On The Island of Koh Samui Thailand

A visit to 🏖 Lamai Beach is definitely something that cannot be missed, when traveling to the beautiful 🏝 Island of Koh Samui Thailand.

A magnificent peaceful stretch of beach, with a more quiet and relaxed town center on the island. Perfect for those that prefer a quieter atmosphere, but still with all the amenities one desires while on vacation.

This part of the island was most certainly my favorite part, when we visited the island a few seasons ago as part of our holidays in Thailand.

First, check out this brief 📹 video giving you a glimpse of beautiful …

you will find the village of Lamai and its beautiful stretch of beach.

Lamai is smaller than Chaweng center, but ranks second in village size on the island. So there’s no shortage of; shops, restaurants, bars and nightclubs.

As well, there’s accommodation to fit most anyone’s desires and budget.

Lamai is definitely a more laid back atmosphere, to that of the hustle and bustle of Chaweng. It’s an easy and quick 🚕 cab or Songtaew ride to this area for those wishing just a day visit from town, like we did.

Get A Great Massage On Lamai Beach

Thailand Beach Massage

As with any other place on the island, treat yourself to a wonderful; Thai massage, both on or off the beach. These people are well trained in their craft and at least a foot massage is something you must do, when visiting any part of Thailand. 🙂

Treat yourself to incredibly affordable; professional massages, manicures and so much more, easily found on most beaches, villages and main town centers.

This is definitely a main attraction for most visitors, when traveling anywhere in Thailand.

Attractions Around Lamai Beach

One of the most visited and most extraordinary attractions in this area are the Hin Ta – Hin Yai Rock Formations. These rocks are definitely unusual resting along the shores of Lamai area. 

I’ll let your imagination run wild and you decide what these formations resemble. A huge attraction for 📸 photography buffs, along with many embarrassing and smiling faces as well!

Mummified Monk at Wat Khunaram

Mummified Monk at Wat Khunaram

A typical lovely Buddhist Temple like so many others to discover in Thailand, but this one comes with a unique twist. Here, lie the mummified remains of the – Monk Luong Pordaen.

This temple is full of history for those wishing to learn more about the Buddhist faith, this extraordinary exhibit and the teachings of Luong Pordaen.

A worthwhile visit for those people who enjoy the beauty and peaceful surroundings of a Buddhist temple.
