- Private group
- Pickup available
- Duration: 5 hours
After pickup from your accommodation, head to the local boxing gym. There you’ll be given a short introduction to Muay Thai and put through your paces in a warm-up session before the class starts. Learn more about Muay Thai, a local mixed martial art and one of the most beloved sports in Thailand. The sport has some similarities to boxing but also introduces the use of legs, elbows, arms, and shins. Learn the basics of the national sport and work up a sweat as you practice kicks, strikes, and punches. After an hour of Muay Thai action, head to the popular Bophut Beach for a delicious dinner with a view of the sunset. Replenish your body with traditional Thai dishes before strolling around the night market at Fisherman’s Village. Speak to the vendors and perhaps do a spot of souvenir shopping before heading back to your accommodation.
Start your tour around mid-afternoon with pickup from your accommodation and quick stops at two of Koh Samui’s famous temples. The first stop is the Big Buddha temple, aptly named for a 12-meter tall golden statue of a serene-looking Buddha. Climb to the top of the staircase and see the imposing statue up close in all its grandeur. Known for its colorful designs and mix of Chinese and Thai architecture, Wat Plai Laem’s most eye-catching feature is the huge statue of the 18-arm Guanyin, believed to be the goddess of mercy and compassion. Explore the colorful grounds and spot another large statue of a laughing monk before starting your jet ski adventure. Following a briefing from your instructor, board your jet ski and ride the waves, making the rounds of some of the island’s best beaches. Take in the long stretch of coastline at Bophut Beach, gaze at the turquoise waters of Maenam Beach...
