Why Pagoda Khao Hua Jook is special ?
The Khao Hua Jook pagoda is situated near Chaweng, right next to airport. The view from the top is stunning – you can see Koh Phangan (and the Big Buddha) in the distance. In the pagoda there is a Buddha’s footprint on display. It was pretty quiet when we were there – this doesn’t seem to be an overly touristy sight.
What to explore at Pagoda Khao Hua Jook?
The Khao Hua Jook Pagoda located on a top of a hill very close to Chaweng offering stunning views over Chaweng Beach.
Not many tourists visiting this beautiful place so you can expect to have peace and silence once you drive up here. In the pagoda Buddha’s footprint is on display and the viewpoint is actually on the top of the building.

- “Golden Pagoda on Top of the Hill”

Tips for you
Of all the "nice view" places on the island, this tops the lot for me. From the stairs to the entrance to the indoor areas to the incredible view, this is awesome. Hit the giant gong, pat the monk's cats, take panorama shots as every angle - N, E, S and W - are worth a photo, particularly the view of Chaweng. If you have an island tour, try to get one that covers this and if you can customise it to do so, your Koh Samui experience will benefit for it.
