An absolutely amazing island only 3 hours from Bangkok... It is a little treasure not yet exploited by the tourist market in Thailand... Beautiful untouched beaches, yummy food and a relaxing atmosphere! Diamond beach is beautiful but there are too many people, rather rent a scooter and travel down the island there you will find magical calm crystal clear beaches with very few people! For people just coming to Thailand for a few days and you want an island vacation go to Koh Samet!
Shangshamei Island must boarded a boat to cross the sea from Luoyong's Banpei Pier, but as for the specific methods of crossing the sea, there are at least three categories: the most popular ferry, the hotel booked with a dock, and the speedboat. As a small island that relies on tourism but is not very developed, the overall consumption of Samei Island is not cheap, and the hotel price is higher than that of Bangkok. The shape of Samei Island is similar to a narrow, long triangle placed in the North-South direction. It is wider in the north and narrower in the south. The whole island has a feeling of primitive jungle, no broad roads, not to mention high-rise buildings. To the north and East is Sai Kaew Beach, which is also the downtown area of Pattaya. The so-called urban area, in fact, is only half a way.
We started from Pattaya. Find a travel agency on Pattaya Street and ask how to get to Banphe's berth. The fare is about 250. After buying the ticket, he took a bus to Samet Island, Samet Island. About Banphe Wharf from Pattaya to Royongbang: Although there are big buses between Pattaya and Royongfu, it is still recommended to take Minivan directly, which is fast and convenient, only about an hour's journey. * Lo Yongban with Banphe wharf to Samei Island ship time: sailing time is about 30 to 40 minutes. Banphe from Banphe to Nadan is an hourly ship from 8:00 to 18:00, full of 20 people to sail. Lo Yongban with Banphe to Samei Island ticket: 50 Baht one-way ticket, it's better to buy round trip ticket, which saves time. There are rental motorcycles at the island dock. About 400 motorcycles can be used for 24 hours. You have to press your passport. The price is gasoline. It's very suitable for cycling around the island. Samed Cliff Resort Koh Samed Hotel is in a good environment. The beach in front of Samed Cliff Resort Koh Samed Hotel is the least populated area in the island, with clean water and sand. This is the best and quietest beach we've found after a motorcycle tour around the island. The beach at the entrance of the hotel is the only one on the island with the least people and quiet.
The best choice for a short vacation is three and a half hours'drive from Bangkok. Same Island is located in Luoyong, southeast of Bangkok, Thailand. It is the third largest island in Thailand. It is connected by a small mountain range from east to west. There are many beautiful bays and beaches on the island. The sand is thin and white. The main crowd and recreational activities are on the northern beach of the island. The fewer and quieter the southward travelers are, the better the original state of the beach is protected. Although less famous than Phuket and Pattaya, the advantage is that the island is rarely commercialized. According to statistics, this island is lucky to have the most sunshine days in Thailand's holiday beach. You can lie on Hat Sai Kaew beach or Ao Prao beach with an umbrella and enjoy the quiet of the sea. The bar at night is very busy, and you can integrate into it and forget to return.
Really enjoyed the sunrises over the sunsets. Booked a Thai House at Vongdeuan and it was very relaxed and peaceful. Plenty of restraunts and tours offerings for great prices. The best thing I did was getting up early for the sunrise. The island tours are a great time filler but not a necessity. If I were to visit again I would take up offers such as Parasailing.
From Bangkok East Railway Station, take a long-distance bus for 4-5 hours to Banpei. On the 7-11 side opposite Bangkok, you can enter the wharf. A 50B boat (slow boat) arrives at the nuanthip public Wharf on the island for 40 minutes by itself. After boarding the island, you have to pay a construction fee of 20B per person. Turn left out of the dock to the main street, which ends with national parks and beaches. Don't carry your luggage there. One person charges 200B for admission. The best thing is to rent a motorcycle, and the guard won't ask. Sammy doesn't look very big on the map, but in fact the range of walking is very small. It is necessary to rent a motorcycle to play the whole island. It is about 400B for 24 hours at the wharf and 300B for remote places. The waters of Diamond Beach are not so clear because of the large number of people and boats, but they are much better than those of Sanya or something in China. The water quality in remote areas such as AONOI NA and AOt Thian is obviously clean and clear, and the scenery is more beautiful. Generally speaking, although not as good as Phuket, it is also a place with beautiful scenery and inexpensive prices on the island. It is a very worthwhile place to visit.
The most attractive thing about Shamei Island is that it has the most beautiful beaches in Thailand. It can enjoy windsurfing, snorkeling and other water activities all year round. It also has the quiet and leisure that Pattaya does not have. When you come to Pattaya, you must go to Samei Island, because Samei Island is really "Samei Island". The white, flour-delicate sands, covered with long and wide sand blankets, set the Pacific Ocean with golden lace. The tropical jungle of coconut and palm trees on the island guards the beautiful beach like loyal guards.
Koh Samet, a small island in the Gulf of Thailand, is a resting place with both poetry and distance. It is clean, sandy, tranquil, original ecology and the unity of nature and man. It is suitable for people to lose all their hearts in the world for a few days. Of course, a family full of love is also an ideal place! The main reason is that this holy place is not a tourist hotspot. It has few people and is unique. The price is suitable for all kinds of people. But I don't want to turn her into Pattaya in Thailand because of my recommendation. That's not my intention! Well, I'll go back to the cabin and listen to the bird song for a while!
wonderful beach area with 6 different beach, white sand and probably not expensive to stay their. worth the travel nearby the bangkok. ❤️♂️⚓️
