Trip Planner:   Asia  /  Thailand  /  Rayong Province  /  Koh Samed

Koh Samed, Rayong Province

Perfect for a short getaway from Bangkok, Koh Samed has staved off the overwhelming development present on nearby islands and still offers visitors clean sand, unbroken coral reefs, and quiet beaches. However, you will still find plenty of restaurants, accommodations, and shops for convenience. Consider renting a motorbike and exploring the island on your own. Be careful on the tricky Thai roads and remember to take pictures of your bike upon rental in case of scams. Our Ban Phe trip planner makes visiting Koh Samed and other Ban Phe attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • On this island for Russian speaking disqualified one small beach located near two hotels on 3 and 2 stars. Here you and drop you if you get to the island through travel agencies. Also with "Russian Beach" on the left hand side by side two large "Chinese Beach". They are divided by a Rocky Ridge. All other beaches scattered around the island okupirovali "English" companions. Evening at Samet pass fire show on the Bank, respectively, in turn to "Chinese" and "Russian" beaches. I note that on the Chinese side show bigger and feerichnoe than in Russian, which kucoe (light version). So choose the evening better company drunken Chinese (and say that Russians drink a lot and chudjat:-))). Naturally, that go to Koh Samet for half a day there is no meaning, only overnight. Cafes are different, but the prices are the same as in Pattaya. To normal shops and massage to go one and a half kilometer, better on the beach-so quickly. Chose the holiday on the island a couple of times, remained positive, only recommend everyone Patojchanam:-)))
