Koh Nang Yuan  The island is nothing but a group of three small islands located to the

north of Koh Tao. Offering stunning and breathtaking views, the islands are connected

by a three-way stretch of pure white powdery beach.

The rich marine life  is similar to that of Koh Tao. With a wide variety of coral formations,

the island is also an ideal diving and snorkelling spot. Accommodations and facilities

are available with daily boat service to and from Koh Tao.

Wat Suan Mokkhaphalaram Commonly known as Suan Mokkh (Garden of Liberation), the modern forest monastery was founded in 1959 by the late Ajahn Buddhadasa Bhikkhu, one of Thailand's most famous monks. This 150-acre forest temple is formerly called Wat Than Nam Lai, and is located beside Highway No. 41, about 50 kilometres north from the Surat City. (or at kilometre 134 marker). Suan Mokkh is set in a serene ambience conducive for meditation or contemplation of the philosophy of life. The temple itself is nothing but a combination of natural sandy grounds and rocks, dotted with trees. There are no elaborate stupas and chapels like other temples, only a place that keeps one in truly in tune with nature.

Buddhadasa  Bhikkhus  philosophy is universal in nature.  Its the combination of Zen,

Taoist and Christian elements with the Theravada Buddhism. That is why his teaching

has attracted many Thais and foreigners, especially those who are eager to look inward

and realign themselves with nature.

The Spiritual Theatre is an interesting attraction for casual visitors. It features art objects,

drawings and poems related to Buddha's teachings in which Buddhadhasa Bhikkhu describes

a pictorial interpretation of Dharma. The building also exhibits a diverse mixture of Thai, Egyptian, Chinese, Indian, Japanese, Tibetan and European-style murals and sculptures.

An ideal place for meditation for serious visitors, Suan Mokkh offers meditation courses for foreigners every month from 1st 10th. The course is from 8.30 a.m. to 5.00 p.m. Call 077 43 1522   077 43 1522   077 43 1597   077 43 1597   or visit www.suanmokkh.org for more information.
