Magic Garden

A few days ago we took our friends to Samui's Magic Garden. I've been there  before, but a very long time ago, so I decided to refresh my memories :-)

The "Magic Garden" or "Secret Buddha Garden" is located in the hills of Samui.  This a stunning collection of beautifully handcrafted statues, made by a local fruit farmer,  Khun Nim Thongsuk, who started to build the garden in 1976 when he was 77 years old.  Amazing job he's done!  

You will also see a statue of Khun Nim himself - here he is, sitting peacefully and watching us exploring his beautiful creation. 

There are two main roads leading to the garden, they both are shown on the Samui maps: The old road is coming from Nathon, it is a "military road", but for some reason most of the people trying to use exactly this road before realising that this road is now closed for traffic. 

The new road and the only one which you need to take, is originating across the road from the temple called Wat Kunaram on the south of the island.  Here in Wat Kunaram you will find another Samui's attraction - mummified monk. Also worth looking at. Wat Kunaram is shown on every Samui's map and it's easy to find, it's located right on the main ring road near Namuang Waterfalls. 

The entrance fee to the Garden is 80 THB.

There are many nice restaurants and view points along the way and I strongly recommend you to stop at some of them and have a drink/lunch and don't forget to take a camera with you on this trip, as you will have a chance to take many amazing scenic pictures along the way and inside the Garden. 

P.S. If I could give you just one tip, I would recommend you to combine Magic Garden with a trip to Samui Paradise Farm Park, which is amazing animals and birds sanctuary, located on the same road as Magic Garden, only a bit higher up in the hills. This is a great place to visit, one of Samui's best kept secrets, fantastic trip especially for families with kids, you will love it.
