These two waterfalls will leave you speechless with their beauty. You can swim and find peace in these falls, because the water is refreshing and the environment that surrounds them is magical.
You can visit these falls by taking a short walk. The road to Namuang 1 is easy, but the walk to Namuang 2 can be more challenging. Although, in both cases, it is a lot of fun.
Wang Sao Thong:
You can find it 2 kilometers Southeast from Namuang 2 waterfall. However, it is important to say that this fall is only active during rainy season.
Nonetheless, if you are here during this season, then you cannot forget to visit it.
The surroundings are magical and make this fall a perfect destination for every kind of traveler: alone, with a partner or with your entire family.
#2 – Practice Muay Thai:
It should not be surprising that you can also practice the most popular sport in the country.
The thing is that not many tourists dare to join a camp and train like a traditional Thai fighter, but if you want, then you can do it in Koh Samui.
You can opt for a pack of classes or directly join a bootcamp for a longer extension of time. Usually, the price per class is 300 THB, approximately $9.4 USD.
It is up to you about how grueling you want this experience to be. Anyway, joining a Muay Thai bootcamp will make you grow as a person and improve you in many senses.

Anyway, there are many watersports you can practice in Koh Samui, but this is one of the most extreme and interesting options.
If you are looking for a shot of adrenaline and a set of unforgettable memories, then you need to practice it.

It costs around 4000 THB for 30 minutes, which equals to $125 USD approximately. A bit expensive, but totally worth it.
