"Thick, green rainforest covers almost the entirety of Koh Samet, a small island within the Rayong Province."

Despite its growing popularity, Koh Samet, which is part of the Laem Ya-Koh Samet National Park, still manages to retain a chilled out vibe, namely due to the lack of high rise buildings and traffic jams.

Just a 45 minute ferry ride from the mainland, Koh Samet’s close proximity to Bangkok makes it a common destination for city-dwellers dreaming of golden sands. In turn weekends can be busy, as travellers flock to the abundance of resorts, bars and restaurants.
