How to get to Koh Samet from Pattaya? Why is it worth visiting this island?
Koh Samet is a small island situated in the Gulf of Siam, 6,5 km from the mainland. The island belongs to Rayong Province. There is Nadan village which occupies an area of only 13 sq. km.
Almost all the beaches on the island have got exotic resorts that offer you cosy lovely bungalows for rent. This is the place for those who want to enjoy beauty of exotic Thai sceneries and have a relaxing and peaceful holiday on an isolated island, far away from hustle and bustle of big cities. There is no night life and you won’t find as many entertainments as in Pattaya, but you will absolutely admire the nature as flora and fauna of this island are well-preserved and taken care of thoroughly. Koh Samet is National Park of Thailand, that is why you have to pay extra 200 THB for visiting it.
• To begin with, you can relax on the white sandy beaches and swim in the crystal clear water. If you get bored, you can try some water sports - water skiing, sailing or windsurfing, which is extremely popular nowadays.
• In Ao Hin Khok Bay you can see an unusual exotic statue of Mermaid and Prince. They are the characters of the poem written by a famous 19th century Thai poet Sunthorn Phu. The monument is built in his honour.
First, you get on a minibus in Pattaya. Then a speedboat will take you straight to the island Pier. To travel around the island you can ride a motorbike - this is the only means of transport available for rent there. Or you can go on foot.
