Koh Samet Guide

Ko Samet (เกาะเสม็ด in Thai) is a rather small island where you will find some of the most beautiful beaches in Thailand. The water is also normally very clear here. Relaxation is the main activity here, so spoil yourself a little and "refill your batteries" in an tropical surrounding.

It is the perfect place for hiding away from daily life stress and work. Anyhow, you are still close to Bangkok and it's shopping, night life and attractions.

Reasons to go to Samet island

There are several reasons to choose Samet as your holiday destination. First of all; the island has some of the best beaches found in the whole country. Hat Sai Kaew (Diamond Beach), Ao Vong Duan and Ao Prao are three of them. Second, the short, convenient distance to Bangkok. And third, the climate is very pleasant.

Where is Samet Located?

The island is located in Rayong province, Southeast of Bangkok and Pattaya and West of Trat province and Koh Chang. It is easy to go here from Bangkok, with bus from the Eastern bus terminal (Ekamai Bus Terminal) or by a mini-van. The journey takes about three hours from Bangkok to Baan Pae Pier.
