Why You Should Vist Hua Thanon

This a beautiful view of a Hua Thanon beach (photo courtesy of
Hua Thanon is area of Koh Samui that is home to fascinating rock formations. The natural geological formations called Hin Ta and Hin Yai rocks resemble the male and female genitalias. When you come to see these rocks, you should find out about the interesting legend behind them too.

Hua Thanon is a Muslim village that boasts of white sand, pristine turquoise beaches and is home to a number of Koh Samui attractions. Both backpackers and luxurious travelers will love Hua Thanon. 

One could meet the fishermen about to set sail in their colorful and artfully painted kor lae boats that resemble the village's equally colorful fish market. Authentic Samui cuisine, usually made up of fresh seafood, can also be found at numerous restaurants by the beach. 

You can choose to lounge on the beach all day with your favorite brand of cocktail or if you are staying at the ShaSa Resort, enjoy a day in the spa and feast at the resort's famous Beyond the Sea restaurant. But if you are wishing to experience more of the Koh Samui attractions, there are a number of fantastic things to do and see while on the island.

Enjoy the day snorkeling or diving and if you want to "get into the wild" you could visit the Samui Aquarium and Tiger Zoo and enjoy a wide variety of wild and exotic animals. You can have your photos taken with those fierce, striped tigers and get up close with other creatures such as manta rays, leopard sharks, nurse sharks, monkeys and sea turtles.

One of the more famous Koh Samui attractions is the main show at the zoo by the Bengal tigers and leopards that demonstrate an exciting display of their strength, speed, agility and naturally intimidating beauty. These live shows are conducted by professional animal trainers so they are safe.

For a more peaceful and less heart pounding adventure, Hua Thanon is home to the Butterfly Garden, a famous Koh Samui attraction. Discover different species of some of the most beautiful butterflies in the world. Walk into the stony steps while being surrounded by these lovely fluttering creatures and if you are lucky, they might even land on your hands. The Butterfly Garden will surround you with both beautiful butterflies as well as blooming flowers.
