Once you finally make it to the temple on top of the mountain the reward is amazing. The view over Ban Tai is phenomenal. On a clear day you can see Samui, and Ang Thong as well. Be respectful tho, it is a monastery and a retreat for mediationers.

A lovely gem of serenity minutes away from the madness of the commercial part of the island. One of the best places for Westerners to discover the essence of vipassana meditation.

Wat Khao Tam is a great viewpoint in Baan Tai, easily accessible on a moped; as are many of the sunset bars on the Nai Wok hillside. Haad Rin has viewpoints at either side of Haad Rin Nok and on the road out of Haad Rin. But infact there are viewpoints pretty much anywhere on the island, just stop for a minute to appreciate it. And for meditation as well.

This temple is clearly not visited by too many tourists, we were told by the one person we saw there people mainly visit whilst on retreats. The temple has a viewpoint and a Buddha footprint all of which were nice. We were the only people there at the time we visited which was very different to our other temple visit experiences. The person we met there was really helpful and informative and helped us to find our way around as we couldn't find the Buddha footprint amd viewpoint. Be aware, there is a sign telling visitors to take a stick with them and look out for the brown dog, we saw the dog and he didn't bother us, however the man we saw did advise that you face the dog at all times when near to it as it attacks from behind. I would recommend visiting this temple if you are close by as our experience there was very unique and we enjoyed it.

This forest monastery Wat is a beautiful quiet oasis away from the bustle of Ban Tai and Thongsala, and a great place to see the sunset over southern Koh Phangan. But if you go, PLEASE leave a small donation during your visit. The Wat really needs our help for maintenance, to make repairs, and to keep the place running. Thai people are usually VERY generous when they visit Buddhist Temples. Westerners may not be seeking merit in the same way as locals, but if you've made it to Thailand, you probably have a few baht you can spare, and the lovely folk who run the monastery will be very grateful for your thoughtfulness.

Come in sunset time if you're around Baan Tai - Wat Khao Tam is a excellent place to visit! Easy road, not far from the main road.

Not a great deal to look at once youre there but its a nice little walk. Would definitely recommend going up on an evening to watch the sunset. Follow the signs for the viewpoint and you find some stairs leading to a rock that overlooks Ban Tai. A great view and vert little effort required getting there!
