And why is it worth visiting this island?
Transfer to Koh Samet from Pattaya. First, you get on a minibus (or bus) in Pattaya. Then a speedboat (or ferry) 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 or by taxi.
Itinerary and prices
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 the beauty of exotic Thai sceneries and have a relaxing and peaceful holiday on an isolated island, far away from the hustle and bustle of big cities. There is no nightlife and you won’t find as many entertainments as in Pattaya, but you will absolutely admire 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 an extra 200 THB for visiting it.
