Koh Samet is a tiny and very attractive island and is the closest decent leisure island to Bangkok. From the capital it is easily reachable if you want a quick escape from the concrete jungle. The beaches are among Thailand’s finest, boasting brilliant white sand, clear water and postcard-perfect scenery. On the weekends it gets lively, as Bangkokians pour in. 

Because of its close proximity to Bangkok, Koh Samet receives a lot of Thai visitors, often staying just for the weekend. In the high season, the island can thus become very crowded, so finding accommodation, as well as space on the main beach, can sometimes be difficult. But you can also visit Koh Samet during the rainy season, as it is one of the driest places in Thailand. In fact, this is probably the best time to visit as you can enjoy the beaches all the more when you have more space to move around.


The most developed beaches are Hat Sai Kaew and Ao Hin Khock, which can, at times, become crowded with sunbathers by day and a buzzing, happy hour-fuelled party by night. The beaches are very picturesque, although are becoming a tad over-developed.

Moving south, Ao Phai and Ao Phutsa are also popular beaches and are typically stunning. Towards the southern end are a few operations offering ‘banana boats’, ‘bumper rides’ and other fun water pursuits, as well as a wake-boarding and jet-skiing. If you want to get involved in other water sports, carry on farther south to Ao Wong Deuan, which has the largest amount of jet-skis and speedboats on the island

The further south you go, the more secluded Samet becomes, and beyond Ao Phutsa, there are a series of small exclusive beaches that are best reached by longtail boat. The quietest beach on the east coast is Hat Saeng Thian (Candlelight Beach), which really allows one to get away from it all. Don’t expect to be able to use ATMs or internet cafes here though!

The other coasts are largely uninhabited, although Hat Ao Phrao on the west side is a pretty beach with some large resorts and guesthouses nearby. This is the best place to catch sunsets. In general, there isn’t much else to see and do on the island beyond the beaches. The interior is small, low lying and not very lush due to lack of rain and waterfalls.

Koh Samet is small enough to walk around anywhere really, although it can be fun to hire motorbikes and ride around the island for an afternoon; you’ll easily be able to cover the entire island in just a few hours. Be warned, however, the roads are quite rough.

Koh Samet now also has an ATM and 7-11 stores. Whereas this may be a drawback for some, those who need these amenities will be well served. The only real negative aspect of Koh Samet, apart from the over-crowdedness which may put some people off, is the presence of a lot of huge, mean mosquitoes. Remember to pack plenty of repellent!


Koh Samet nightlife and restaurants

For its size, there’s a surprisingly lively nightlife scene on Koh Samet, with fire-shows on the beach and many buzzing parties at the various guesthouses nearby. For the most part, it’s all very much dancing on the sand or under wooden shelters; you won’t find much resembling a pub or a club here, except for a couple of operations on Hat Sai Kaew. Silver Sands seems to be the epicentre of the Koh Samet beach party scene.

Prior to the partying, there are many beachside restaurants offering seafood barbecues, which are generally fair to good, and these places will also typically offer Thai and international food. Naga comes well recommended, as does the Ao Phai Resort.

Getting to Koh Samet

The easiest way to get to Koh Samet from Bangkok is by bus and boat combination. A prearranged package can be bought from most travel agents which will include the coach and ferry together for around 300 baht one-way, 400 baht for a small, uncomfortable minibus, or 300 one-way, 500 baht return for a much better VIP coach.

These buses take you to Ban Phe in Rayong, from where you catch a boat over to the island. You can make your own way to Ban Phe if you prefer, by catching a public bus from Bangkok’s eastern bus terminal. This offers small savings, but a spacious and more comfortable bus ride. The total journey time is about three hours, 30 minutes.

You can also drive from Bangkok: simply keep heading down Sukhumvit Road and follow signs to Chonburi, Rayong and then Ban Phe. In Ban Phe there are plenty of places to leave your car for a small charge per night.
