Wat Kuhnaram on Koh Samui, Thailand
I didn't see a lot of tourists, which surprised me. Koh Samui does not have a international airport yet and so it probably sees very few Americans, and mainly Thai locals or Australians. It's funny how Australians seem to pop up in every odd corner of the world. They love to travel and it is almost always that case that you will bump into one when your overseas.
Koh Samui, Thailand local praying at Buddhist Temple
You could get blessings by donating money to the temple (I didn't do it but watched as some of my mates did). There were some locals at the temple who were praying and we did our best to give them privacy.

A large puddle of water gathered at the back of our pickup truck. After a few moments, the rain stopped as the sky remained dark and threatening. A few of us jumped back out of the truck and into the puddle. It just didn't matter anymore. We were here to have fun. Our guide of course never said much of anything, as he was mainly just the driver, but that was okay. As long as kept delivering the good stops, then that's all that mattered.
