Day 2: Koh Samui sightseeings

We woke up pretty early, so we decided to check out the beach first before heading for breakfast. It was such a nice day for a walk.


The breakfast area is located at the main restaurant next to the beach. Needless to say, the best seats are outdoors with ocean view.

I love the breakfast here, especially the hot dishes and desserts. The menu changed daily and everything was so tasty.  The breakfast had so much variety such as bread, cereal, all kind of eggs, bacon, ham, sausages, salads, baked pasta, curry dishes, roti prata, sambal prawns, porridge, fried noodles, rice, cakes, muffins, puddings, fruits and many more.

Sumptuous breakfast

In the afternoon we rented a motorbike again and heading to the southern of Koh Samui. Our destination was the Grandfather and Grandmother rock.

Grandmother rock, in case you're not sure what to look at, it's the hole in between hehehehe...

Grandfather rock.. this should be quite obvious.

Compare the size of the rock with the kayak boat that passing through.
Nearby the rocks, there are many shops selling souvenirs and snacks. I bought this traditional Thai sweets that was pretty addictive.

I found out from Google that it is called "Kalamae".

Not far from the rocks, probably about ten minutes ride, we spotted this cool red temple. Have you seen one like this?

After another twenty minutes ride, we reached the waterfall.

Na Muang Waterfall
We were crazy to bring a toddler to the waterfall as it requires some trekking to reach up there. Furthermore, it rained earlier so it was quite dangerous to climb up the rocks. And the worst part is the waterfall wasn't worth going at all.

First, we had to ride this 4WD to go up the hill. This is the only enjoyable part hehehe...

For comparison, she was only as tall as the wheels. :P


The trekking started.

A wobbly path.

And this was what we saw. Such a disappointment.
