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 Phe trip planner makes visiting Koh Samed and other Phe attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Take a day trip to this island from Pattaya. Indeed, the tour is a shuttle bus and boat. On the island each granted himself. My wife and I immediately upon arrival, rented a scooter and drove around the whole island in a day. Though the movement left, but purely symbolic-a couple of machines on the entire island and slightly more scooters. But it is a two-wheeled vehicle still lurking in a man and a woman from our group back return all in bandages and head including. Hard fell. So if there is no experience or are unsure of yourself-better go Tuk-or. Instead, we visited some great beaches where there were only a few people! This is the highlight of the island! Very few places left in the world where you can still enjoy the solitude. I wish I could go with 2-3-day-Samad tour? Perhaps, Yes. One day a little, considering the long journey. I want to come back here again.

  • Get ferry from Ban Phe either slow boat or fast. Big difference in price per person. Check out ferry company beforehand as some good with times and price others can be rubbish turn up at least half an...  more »
  • An island which was wonderful reduced to a playground for Chinese, who bring money and then screw the environment. The fee for the Park still pays but the Park, hey presto, magically disappeared. Equally annoying big annoying small motorboats and jet skis infest the coast up to the shore, making the air smelly and cloudy water. The waters are a thing of the past. On the other hand the prices of resorts and restaurants are growing steadily. Selling off the natural heritage pays well. For me I think last time, with much sadness.
