Samui Activities at Ban Taling Ngam, The Sunset Beach Resort & Spa

Samui Golf
Situated on the mountains of Samui Island, the Santiburi Samui Country Club offers a par-72, 18-hole championship golf course over 6,930 yards. With magnificent views of the ocean and beach, the course challenges golfers with its uphill and downhill slopes and winding fairways that cut into the coconut forest, cliffs and mountain creeks.

Samui Diving
Diving Koh Samui offers high-quality diving most of the year. The most famous dive site in the area is Sail Rock, North of Koh Phangan, which has an 18m natural rock chimney swim through and is a good place to see whale sharks. Other sites can be found in the North of Ang Thong National Park and close to the Gulf's diving mecca Koh Tao, which has 21 sites off its shores.

Na Muang Waterfall
Located about 10 km south of Nathon. It is about 80 meters high. There is a short walk to get to the waterfall.

Hin Lad Waterfall
Located 2 km south of Nathon Town. Take a walk in the forest and enjoy a soft drink or why not a refreshing Thai beer such as Singha, Beer Chang or Leo afterwards.

Big Buddha Beach
Wat Phra Yai is a more than 12-meter tall Buddha statue, first built in 1972. It is located on a small island but today connected with main land with a bridge. Please show respect and wear proper clothes and shoes while visiting. This is not just a tourist attraction, but also an important Buddhist symbol for the local Thai people here. In 2005 and 2006, Big Buddha has been extended with a Dharma wheel and a traditional Suphannahong boat

Big Buddha

Buffalo Fighting Festival
there are several "stadiums" around the island, most being a basic cleared area under the palms with a wall of bamboo matting or coconut leaves to hinder the view of those who haven't paid for a seat. Men pay about 100 Baht, women enter free. The fight ends when one animal runs away, usually well before either animal gets hurt.

Bungee Jump
not for the fainthearted! Samui bungee jump is located next to the reggae pub, which is handy for those needing some Dutch courage beforehand! The 50-meter jump is held over a large specially designed plunge pool.

Elephant Trekking
over fifty elephants call Samui home and all work in the tourist industry. A typical 'trek' lasts between 15 minutes and half an hour and is an excellent way to see the island's jungle clad interior. Some companies take visitors up into the hills for magnificent views over the island; others go through waterfalls, where riders run the risk of receiving a cooling shower.

Snorkeling
get to see the beaches of Koh Samui in a different way! During a boat trip around the island you will pass some of the most stunning beaches and coves: Big Buddha Bay, Choengmon Bay, Chaweng Bay, Lamai Bay, Hua Thanon Bay, Koh Mudsum and Koh Tan. A BBQ style picnic lunch will be prepared on a sandy beach along the way and there will be opportunities for snorkeling.
