If you are looking for a quiet and beautiful island which is not far away from Bangkok, Thailand, Samet Island is the right one. Samet Island and its surrounding was declared to be a national park of great natural beauty since . It is very easy to get there. You can catch a bus to Ban Pae, Rayong, which is the nearest port to Samet Island. Then take almost an hour by boat there. Although, Samet Island isn't fantastic like Phuket, in the South of Thailand, it is such a lovely place and a wonderful island.
High summer offers heat and sun, you may go for tan and see more than you expect to. The rainy season is from May to July. However, even in rainy season, Samet Island has less rain than the other islands in Thailand. You can't help but feel refreshed and have wonderful experience there.
I do believe that you will certainly enjoy every minute and fell in love with this wonderful island. And then you can't wait to go back there again!
