Very close to Bangkok and not crowded at all. Must visit for those looking for some quiet. The national park isn’t that great and if you’re planning to walk around the park, beware of mosquitoes .

Overpriced to the hilt. CAN 200 dollars a night for the crappiest place on the island. Just insane and not worth it as waters are also not blue or green.
