Koh Samet, Thailand

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

It 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.

National park land

Most of the island is a national park and the southern part of the island 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 and can be visited year-round.
