The small, palm fringed island of Koh Samet lies in the Gulf of Thailand and has sandy beaches to match any in the country.

Koh Samet, ThailandIt can be reached by car and speedboat in only two and a half hours from Bangkok and so has become a popular getaway for Thai and foreign travellers alike.

Most of the island is a national park while the southern part has forested hills that shelter small, beautiful beaches shared by just one or two small lodges or hotels. These are quiet and restful havens — and best of all — Koh Samet escapes the worst of the monsoon season so can be visited year round.
