Koh Samet is a great place to slow things down and enjoy the simpler side of life. You can watch the sun set from atop the cliffs overlooking the beaches. You can stay down on the Hat Sai Kaew or Ao Hin Khok beaches and enjoy the fire twirling shows. Rent a boat and tour around the island, or pack a lunch and explore the interior. The quiet beaches and idyllic lifestyle will help you relax and enjoy life again. A Koh Samet hotel is a perfect solution to a busy lifestyle.
From Bangkok, take highway number 3 the 220 kilometres to Rayong. You can either drive, or take a bus along this route. Once you arrive in Rayong, make your way to Ban Phe or Nuan Thip. From the pier, it is a 45 minute ferry trip. If you are impatient, you can hire a speedboat at Ban Phe to take you directly to your Koh Samet hotel.
