1. The Muang Waterfalls

Koh Samui is famous for the Muang Waterfalls, a set of two beautiful natural cascades that can be easily reached by following a walking path. The sound and the pleasant atmosphere are perfect if you want to relax and take several photos that you will surely cherish in the long run. The Muang waterfalls are located close to one another, and there is the Na Muang 1 and Na Muang 2 – both of them are natural and untouched by human hands. The waterfalls have received their name due to the amazing shade of the rock faces, which turn purple in the sunlight. The view is absolutely spectacular, not to mention that you can even swim here!
