Going Coco Loco
- Full Day
Upon being picked up from the hotel, be taken to learn all about the core export of Koh Samui - coconuts.

The first stop is at the Coconut Museum, a learning source on using various coconut parts for making coconut oils using different methods from peeling to scraping, and squeezing to distilling. Get a chance to learn how to make a traditional sweet dessert called Kanom Kee Mun, which is rare to find this day.

Following this, enjoy a local lunch in an orchard, and be served a variety of dishes where coconut remains the main ingredient.

After lunch, walk through the garden to enjoy sights of Hin Lad Waterfall and a local temple. Next, proceed to the Agricultural Technology Transfer Center, the center that will teach you all about local agricultural practices of coconut cultivation such as growing methods and coconut species. See demonstrations of coconut crafts made by locals.

The day program ends at a small factory Samui Coco Processing, owned by a local family. The manual process of processing coconuts will be demonstrated at the store by Mr. Soontorn Ponoi-ngarm. He will show how hard coconut shells and trunks were made into different products such as household appliances, souvenirs, decorative items or gifts, etc.

Return to the hotel with a lovely handicraft souvenir for a lifetime’s keepsake. (L)
