Monkey work coconut
On Samui, the monkey undoubtedly qualifies as man's best friend. This isn't surprising, since for centuries the people here have used monkeys to do the hardest part of the work climbing the trees to pick ripe nuts on their coconut plantations. Until the advent of tourism, coconuts represented the main industry here, so these industrious little animals were greatly prized. The monkey theatre offers shows in which the monkeys display their dexterity, and not just at picking coconuts. The entertainment also includes performing elephants. Look for the theatre on the main road behind Bophut village.

Buffalo
This is a sport specific to the south of Thailand, and on Samui it generates a great deal of excitement. There are about a half dozen rough " stadiums" around the island, most being no more than a cleared area under the palms with a wall of bamboo matting or coconut leaves to hinder the view of those who haven't paid for a seat. Great crowds gather when a fight is on, and while men pay about 100 Baht, women enter free. Usually, the more aggressive the buffalo, the greater the crowd's delight. The fight ends when one animal turns and runs, usually well before either animal gets hurt.
 

Snake
Samui snake farm is located at Talingngam on the south of the island. As its name implies, it is where all kinds of snakes and reptiles are gathered.
Some rare species of poisonous snakes those that cannot be found in Europe or America are kept here. Some of these snakes take the center stage during the farm's special shows.
An exciting part is a fight between man and scorpion, and even centipede (a show unique here). There is also a cobra show that only Samui Snake Farm can put up.

And don't worry, the animals are not harmed during the show. Snakes, for example, aren't caught to have their teeth or their poison taken away. These natural shows are presented in line with the highest standards of Thailand. Visitors can be assured of 100 percent safety during the performances. Aside from the exciting shows, you can also avail of various interesting information in the exhibition rooms and snakes' houses. Showtime: 11 a.m. & 2 p.m. daily.

 

 

Butterfly Garden
Visiting a butterfly farm is a great way of getting up close to some beautiful creatures that one would otherwise only ever see as a flash of vivid color against green forest. The butterflies on the Samui farm flit about naturally amid tropical foliage, but they can't completely escape from view. Besides observing at close range some of the region's most beautiful butterflies, you can witness the breeding cycle of some species that are raised on the spot. The farm is set up on a hillside overlooking the ocean on the southeast corner of the island and makes for a pleasant short outing.
 

Marine Life
Watching all kind of marine life requires to go snorkeling, be a diver and moving around the surrounding islands.
BUT you do not have to get wet to enjoy Samui's stunning underwater world.
Just visit Samui Aquarium & Tiger Zoo which has been fascinating visitors with their marvelous collection of tropical marine life such as sharks, tropical fish and innumerable other colorful species of aquatic creatures, including turtles which are displayed in vast tanks that line either side of a 120meter long cave-like tunnel. Each tank also houses multi-colored coral, rocks and sea forests, adding to the realism of the exhibition.
Entrance fee is 250Baht. Showtime for the All stars birds & Bengal tiger show is 1:00 p.m.

 

Crocodile Farm
Samui Crocodile farm is located behind the airport and easy to find. On an area of  7,000 sqm you can find app. 100 animals of various kinds like Siam crocodiles, caimans, Saltwater crocodiles, snakes, lizards, monkeys and many others. Showtime is two times daily, at 1400h and 1630h. Don't miss this opportunity to watch Thailand's wildlife.

Elephant Trekking
If you prefer elephants to jeeps, the island's interiors can be easily accessed using the backs of these wonderfully majestic animals. Their feet are specially made for jungle surfaces, on which they are ever so sure-footed, so sit back and enjoy the silent ride. Standard treks last for 30 minutes, but longer trips can be requested.

There are several places now on Samui where you can climb on the back of an elephant and take a ride through the jungle to enjoy the natural beauty of the island. Treks lasts about 30 minutes but longer trips can be arranged.
