Museum
“A temple which is located deep inland on one of the highest mountains on the island. At the very top you can find an antiques museum, a huge golden Buddha, statues of the Chinese horoscope, a reclining Buddha, a laughing Buddha, and a pink statue resembling a cow elephant. In good weather there is a breathtaking view from here. However, access to the temple is very poor. Unless you’re adventurers who want to go on foot, it’s better to rent a quad bike or arrange a guide, who will drive you to the place in an off-road vehicle. Szabo, Pavel.

“A wonderful place to eat, sitting by a white sandy beach. I recomend you stick to western food (which is tasty and fresh), as the thai is not as good as in the other restaurants. They have a buffet breakfast too, from 7.30am. Prices are very reasonable.”
