Hike at Hin Lad Waterfall
After breakfast, make your way to the Hin Lad Waterfall. The trek to the waterfall through the jungle is almost as rewarding as the destination itself.

After relaxing on the beach, go see the Elephant Gate, a striking landmark featuring two giant elephant statues.
Laem Sor Pagoda and Wat Khao Chedi
Proceed to Laem Sor Pagoda, an important and beautiful religious site set on the seafront. Its golden hue at sunset is particularly impressive. Afterwards, visit Wat Khao Chedi, a white Buddhist stupa located on a hill with stunning views of the coastline and neighboring islands.
