The pagoda at Lawn Sor is very pretty and certainly worth seeing. However, be aware that there's no tourist information or infrastructure there. No market, no bar or cafe. Just a pagoda on a beach. It's great to photograph and to contemplate, but don't expect...More

It's not worth a special trip, but if in the SW area of Samui, seek it out, it is right on the coast... other things in the area to see too, it could be part of a self guided round the island day tour!

Lovely peaceful for a reflective few moments. We loved this end of the island - so much quieter and more authentic. Good parking. I think there was a coffee shop but not sure. Lots of dogs around swimming in the sea behind. Lovely.

Amazing Gold-platted building close to the beach and few steps from the Laem For village. The place is very quiet, with nice relaxing atmosphere.
