There are many great places to get a cold drink, sit back and relax and soak up the atmosphere in Koh Samui, one of those spots is the Big BBCoffee 2Buddha Coffee Shop at the Big Buddha Temple. What makes this spot so great is the location. In the Big Buddha Temple area there are no main roads with their associated noise and dust and this area is packed full of shops selling everything from OTOP (One Tambon One Province) goods to gifts and beautiful clothing. Once you have enjoyed the unique shopping opportunities and a visit to the Buddha shrine itself and taken in the amazing views (please dress respectfully) then the Big Buddha Coffee shop is a great place to chill out and enjoy a wide range of beverages.

The wide range of amazing ice cream milk shakes are made with local fresh fruit such as Lime, coconut, banana and mango, or if you prefer something a bit less fruity then try the vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, mocha or butterscotch. If you are watching your waistline and don’t want to indulge on the delicious ice cream version then ask for a fruit shake make with ice, syrup, mango, pineapple, watermelon, banana and apple, or any combination you choose.

The Big Buddha Coffee shop has some nice indoor seating under some cooling fans when it’s hot, a comfortable sofa overlooking Bangrak Bay, a small terrace at the back where you can take in the view and a larger terrace at the front where you can indulge in a spot of people watching.
