Temple of the Big Buddha & Monkey Demonstration

Take a narrated drive around the island on this half-day excursion and visit two of Samui's most important temples as well as watch a demonstration of how monkeys harvest the coconuts. Temple of the Big Buddha is an important meditation center, known for its massive, seated Buddha. You'll have time to browse the local gift stalls before continuing on to Wat Plai Laem, home to a superb statue of Kwan Yin or "Guanjin," the 18-armed Buddhist avatar of Mercy. Visit a local venue where you'll see a demonstration of how monkeys are utilized in the agricultural production on the island. For centuries, the agile monkeys have been trained to climb the tall, slender trunks of the coconut palms and pluck the coconuts for their handlers. Afterwards, re-board the motorcoach and return to the ship.
