Khao Laem Ya - Mu Ko Samet National Park, Phe

(4.1/5 based on 35+ reviews on the web)
Khao Laem Ya - Mu Ko Samet is a Thai marine national park in the Gulf of Thailand off the coastline of the Thai province of Rayong, approximately 180 km southeast of Bangkok. In 1981, the Royal Forest Department of the Thai Government declared the archipelago of Ko Samet, along with nine other small islands, the headland of Khao Laem Ya, and the 11 kilometre Mae Rampeung Beach to be a national park, and thus these areas are under the jurisdiction of the national parks department. In August, 2013 more than 500 national park officials were deployed to destroy three resorts—Muk Samet, Unseen, and Ploy Samet—which had been built illegally in the Khao Leam Ya-Mu Ko Samet National Park.GeographyThe park covers an area of 131 square kilometres of land and sea in Klaeng district, Rayong Province. The major and minor landmarks of the park are: Khao Plet (Plet Hill and valley) Khao Laem Ya (Leam Ya Hill and valley) Mae Ram Phung Beach and mountain and the islands of: Ko Samet Ko Kudi (Monk's Chamber Island) Ko Kruai (Cone Island) Ko Makham (Tamarind Island, also called Ko Kham) Ko Plai Tin (Foot's Tip Island) Ko Chan (Moon Island) Ko Talu (Hole Island) Ko Klet Chalam (Shark Scale Island) Ko Thai Khang Kao (Bat's Bottom Island)
