Holidays to Koh Samet
The pretty Thai island of Koh Samet is close enough to Bangkok to make it a great weekend escape, but miles away from the hustle and bustle of city life. If you are looking for a relaxing island getaway with beautiful beaches, clean, clear waters, and plenty of water sports, dining, and nightlife on offer, Koh Samet is the place for you.
What to see and do on a Holiday to Koh Samet
Koh Samet is all about the beaches, as the island is fringed with sandy bays, rocky outcroppings, and hidden coves. The most popular beaches run along the east side of the island, and this is where you will find a wide range of accommodation, sun loungers for hire, and enticing beach bars. If you are looking for a bit more seclusion, try some of the small beaches on the west and north coasts of the island.
Besides lazing on the soft sands on the beaches, travellers on a holiday to Koh Samet can also hit the water for some excitement on and under the sea. Many people come to Koh Samet to get their PADI scuba diving certification, as the courses here are very reasonably priced and the underwater world off the coast is filled with stunning coral and colourful fish. Windsurfing is also popular here, as well as sailing, jet skiing, and banana boat rides.
If it’s tasty food you are looking for, Koh Samet will not disappoint. During the day, the restaurants and guesthouses on the beaches serve tempting Thai curries and noodles, pizzas, hamburgers, and salads. When the sun goes down, these same bars set up barbecues on the sand, and hungry diners can choose from an array of fresh fish on ice to be grilled to perfection and served with sides of vegetables, potatoes, and corn. Night owls will also find many bars serving cheap beer and cocktails in pavilions overlooking the water.
