Tropical Bliss on Relaxing Koh Samed

Tropical Bliss on
Relaxing Koh Samed

When heading to Koh Samed, you have bought yourself a ticket to the Thai tropics. A collection
of white-sandy beaches, azure-blue waters and a very laid-back atmosphere are the
ingredients for a day out and leaving the holiday life of Pattaya behind you.

WHY THIS TOUR?

Among the various islands off the coast of Rayong, Koh Samed is Rayong’s major attraction – a palm-fringed tropical island with fine white-sandy beaches and fantastic opportunities for swimming, snorkelling, windsurfing, sailing and sunbathing.

The eastern side of this triangular-shaped island has fine, sandy beaches, while the rocky headlands are on the west. A vast amount of resorts, especially bungalow-styled accommodation, gives the island a rustic feel. Indulge in several beach activities. To the east are the smaller islands of Koh Kudi, Koh Khangkhao and Koh Rusi.

When merely seeking a day’s trip out to Koh Samed to admire its stunning beaches and natural beauty, this excursion will answer your question when in need of a tropical hideaway, away from Pattaya.

TRAIL ITINERARY

Tropical Bliss on Relaxing Koh Samed

06:00 - 19:00

A very early departure from your Pattaya accommodation is required to maximise your day to Koh Samed. This island truly deserves its name of “Paradise Island”, white, sandy beaches and warm water with a skyline of palm trees. Only a 1-hour drive from your Pattaya hotel/resort, we bring to the local village of Ban Phe, where in just a few minutes, a local boat brings to and from Koh Samed.

The island is situated in the National Park to limit further development and allow nature takes on its course. Relaxation is the main activity, so this is the ideal place to “recharge the batteries” in an idyllic setting. As the island is traffic-free (apart from a few pick-up trucks, doubling as local taxis), it is also the perfect destination for those seeking relaxation in a hammock, a cosy restaurant, or beach sidebar. However, if you tire of sunbathing, other activities are available such as windsurfing or snorkelling. Another option is a lazy stroll along Hat Sai Kaew and the adjoining beaches that stretch to the tip of the island. While lunch is not included between free time for relaxing, swimming or enjoying a variety of water sports, there ample choices to get some delicious Thai specialities on the island. The most wonderful white sandy beaches await you!

The end of the day may arrive too early, but it is time to head back by boat to the mainland and onward for an hour drive to Pattaya and your hotel room. Expect to arrive at around 7 m at your hotel lobby.
