There's so much to see on Ko Sichang that we're still discovering new attractions after twenty years of visits and five years of living here.

There's hardly a corner of the island where you won't find something worth looking at. Below we list the most popular targets, plus a couple that are often overlooked, but shouldn't be. Samlors will take you to most of these on the standard tour of the island. Make sure to allow plenty of time--just tell the driver how long you want to wait, and it's her/his call whether to wait, or go off and come back...

This fascinating building--there is no plan to put glass in the windows--was built by a professor of architecture (from our alma mater, Syracuse University in New York State) with the aid of only a single worker. A practical man, the owner has a more ordinary house next door. We have not ventured to ask for a tour, and guess that good manners is to look at it from the road.
