Soak in the scenery and admire Buddhist art and architecture at Pagoda Khao Hua Jook. Recognizable by its ornate golden dome, the temple is surrounded by lush and tranquil nature. The small hill on which the pagoda is positioned offers excellent views of the Chaweng Lake and the surrounding countryside on one side, and the Samui airport on the other, making it a great vantage point for plane spotters. The pagoda is not accessible via public transportation, but you can reach it by private car or on an organized tour. Admission to the temple is free, but donations are accepted.
