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.
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 jungle tours
Ung 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.
