Koh Samet, Thailand is not as famous as its other islands such as Phuket, Phi Phi, Koh Samui (all of which I've visited before) but it is so beautiful that it was declared the National Park of Thailand because of its archipelago. For this reason I had to visit and I'm so glad that I did!
The best thing about this place is that there are so few people on this island. The prices here are the highest in all of Thailand and you have to pay to be on this island which discourages too much tourism. The beach is well kept and so quiet. I truly loved it here! The atmosphere was so different from the rest of Thailand. I felt like time stood still and I could stay there in perfect peace forever. I even asked my boyfriend if we could retire there together! If you ever visit Thailand, I would still recommend the popular islands because they are also beautiful and full of culture and excitement. But if you want to relax and not have a care in the world, Koh Samet is the place to be. My beach cabin was amazing as well! Next time, I hope I'm there as a couple. This place is so romantic!
