Laem Sor is in the deep south with Laem Set to the east and to the west the area finishes at a headland, beyond which is Thong Krut.
The main attraction here is Wat Laem Sor, part of which is a golden looking Pagoda perched on the waters edge at Laem Sor beach. Next to this Chedi which was built many years ago is a 'meditation' forest, where there are also some seats and tables should you wish to stay a while and enjoy the stunning views over to the neighbouring islands of Koh Tan and Koh Matsum and even have a picnic. On Buddhist holy days, monks and lay people will fill the area with a festival atmosphere.
Next to this is a boathouse where model boats are placed to thank the monk who built the pagoda, for granting their wishes. A visitor centre is here to provide further information.
Prior to the existence of Pagoda Laem Sor, a snow white stupa known as Khao Chedi was erected over 100 years ago and sits on top of a steep hill above Ban Khao bay surrounded by various statues of Buddha. The view over the bay and the islands and mainland beyond is an added bonus.
