Close enough to Bangkok to attract weekenders, but with plenty of untouched space, Ko Samet is a great choice to lay back and chill out.

All the fascinations expected from Thailand, plus lots more. If you know what Thailand has to offer a tourist--great, inexpensive, exotic foods; top-notch hotels for under $60 U.S. a night; cultural activities; and tons more--then Ko Samet has all that and more.

We were reaching the end game of our round-the-world trip and wanted somewhere to relax and top up our tans. Ko Samet fit the bill perfectly

The former name of Ko Samet meant "the island with sand of crushed crystal", which is a good name for this island paradise. This is the best island for people without much time in Thailand because it is only three hours by bus from Bangkok.
