There are a number of fascinating places to visit in Thailand. Ko Lanta is located on the East coast of Thailand.

Koh Samet Thailand is Close to Bangkok

Koh Samet Weather

One of the biggest benefits of Koh Samet is the climate. It is one of the driest areas in Thailand.

Ao Wai Beach Koh Samet

For those who want to go somewhere a bit quieter then Ao Wai can give you the peace and seclusion you desire.

Alternatively if you want a bit more privacy there are also massage shops by the beach side so you can enjoy it in the shade.

Often when people go traveling they want a souvenir to take back with them. There are a number of distinct crafts that the local people make in Koh Samet Thailand.
