Visit Wat Sila Ngu (Koh Samui)

Thai name : วัดศิลางู
My opinion:
If you are looking for accommodation near Wat Sila Ngu, you can see here a list of hotels near Wat Sila Ngu
The small Wat Sila Ngu temple also known as Wat Ratchathammaram is located at the top of Hua Thanon beach in the south of Koh Samui. Accessible by a staircase from the beach or by a door from the road, it is a still little known by tourists Buddhist temple and rarely mentioned in guide books yet. The stone snake pagoda, ''Phrataht Hin Ngoo'', its nickname, hosts a beautiful red ordination hall with beautiful sculptures in relief on the exterior and interior walls.

Wat Sila Ngu is less than 2 kilometers from the famous Hin Ta Hin Yai rocks so why not come just before or after?
