magic garden


Nim Thongsuk

The "Magic Garden" or "Secret Buddha Garden" is located in the hills of Samui. A Samuian fruit farmer, Nim Thongsuk, started to build the garden in 1976 when he was 77 years old.

To get there is a bit difficult as the only concrete road leading there is a military road and is not accessible by "normal" people ( in the last couple of month the guards let you pass if you want to visit the garden....so give it a try).
So, the only way to get there is through the jungle, rivers and mountains by a four-wheel-drive jeep. The journey takes about 2 hours starting at the back of the Lamai temple and is only recommended for experienced "outdoor" drivers.
Another way to get to the garden is by joining one of the safari tours.

It's quite worth a visit and on the way you can make a stop-over at Samui's highest point overlooking the island from north to south, the surrounding islands as well as the mainland.
