A cute 'secret' garden set in the middle of Ko Samui. A beautiful waterfall and stream are surrounded by tens of statues. Was very beautiful and very quiet, we spent 30-45 mins here which was just about right. Our guide even managed to find some coffee beans that were growing locally.

This was the highlight of an otherwise unremarkable "Safari" with a tour company. There are lots of thai-style statues in different poses and groupings, and is placed in a beautiful hidden sanctuary of a locale with streams, a baby waterfall. Spent about 30 minutes here which was the right amount of time.

Was difficult to find this place as we took our motorbike and decided to visit it without any guide. Once found it on the top of the hills it was just beauty, nature, waterfalls and ancestral status surrounded by butterflies. Amazing place to find inner peace.

Amazingly beautiful place, not busy at all. It is a little bit small so I think you will need about 45 minutes to see everything There is only one weird peeping sound the whole time..maybe some device against mosquitos ?

we hired a car and went to this garden, it's pretty impressive, very peaceful and shaded from the sun. The noise of crickets or other insects was the only sound. A restful place

Although not listed on the main tourist route it is a charmingly peaceful relaxing place to visit. Well worth the effort.
