Though Wat Kao Hua Jook is not considered to be a highly popular tourist attraction, a visit to this old temple is recommended for a unique cultural experience as well as for some fantastic views of the coastline. It can be reached via a 90 metre walk up a hill and offers a peacefully relaxing atmosphere with plenty of seated areas. It is an excellent spot to observe the airplanes flying in and out of the Samui International Airport. The views during sunset are particularly spectacular, when the sky explodes into a palette of colours. A small coffee shop is also available for visitors and is considered to serve some of the best coffee in Koh Samui.
