Koh Samet Island – Peaceful Paradise

Koh Samet in the South West of Thailand is the perfect tropical holiday destination if you want to get away from it all. Located seven miles from the mainland, Koh Samat is renowned for having some of the best white sand beaches in the whole of Thailand and with good weather all year round you’ll have plenty of opportunities to enjoy them! Koh Samat is actually the driest of all the islands of Thailand during the rainy season too, so if you like a holiday with great weather virtually guaranteed, then Koh Samat is definitely a good choice.

Koh Samat is an island of outstanding natural beauty, and is part of a protected national park. You won’t find a wealth of busy shops and nightclubs on the island; instead you’ll find a gentle pace of life, a place to relax and unwind. You’ll soon forget the stresses and strains of everyday life when you arrive on Koh Samat. Despite the lack of commercial tourist attractions on the island, there’s still plenty to do.

Most people come to Koh Samet primarily for the amazing beaches, of which there are many. Water sports are also popular. You can dive or snorkel to view the stunning coral reef on the south of the island, try your hand at windsurfing, or take a fishing trip or boat ride.

There are plenty of places to stay on Koh Samet. From camp sites to five star hotels, or rent a bungalow for a longer stay. There are also plenty of great bars and restaurants so you can relax with a drink and taste some amazing local cuisine. You can sample some of the delicious tropical fruits that grow on the island and some amazing dishes made from freshly caught fish and seafood.

Getting to Koh Samat from Pattaya needn’t be complicated. There is a daily minibus service from Pattaya to Koh Samat although you may have to make a change along the way. You’ll then need to take the ferry across to Koh Samat Island. It’s very useful though to have your own vehicle for the duration of your stay so you can easily get around Koh Samat and get the most from your holiday by visiting all the sights. You’ll definitely be able to get more done with your own transport and it’s far more convenient.
