A tour to Coconut museum on Koh Samui
Koh Samui is the third largest island of Thailand. Only a 100 years ago it was the only island that cupplied coconuts for the rest of Thailand. Coconuts were picked by hand and sent to Bangkok and from there to the rest of the world. In part due to the coconuts picked on Koh Samui Thailand experienced an economic boom.
When Koh Samui became a major dream destination, coconut undustry of the island shrinked but many small coconut farms still keep up the traditions of old.
The coconut museum offers you a unique opportunity to take part in pressing coconut oil! You will learn how to pick the most ripe nuts, to tell the difference between different kinds of coconuts, you will be pressing coconut milk and meat yourself and make coconut oil by hand. And after the training you can take a 100 ml bottle of freshly pressed coconut oil home! This is the best souvenir of the island you can think of! This workshop takes place only once a week, on Sundays, so you need to book this tour beforehand.
In the coconut museum you will see different sculptures carved out of dried coconut shell, you will also see unusual musical instruments that resemble a cither, home decorations, and curious massage shoes and incredible ornaments created by skilled Thai craftsmen!
