We took free speed boat from Ao Prao Pier. The pier was busy but organized. There are not enough seats at the pier. There are truck taxis outside the pier. We took an island tour from the pier.

Disgusted, dirty island, no social distancing, deforested island and getting worse.
Apr 2021
no social distancing no common sense. Park rangers found an easier way to make money. What are the rangers for?

Once upon a time samet had many trees, jungle even. Now this has been developed. piles of rubbish all over the place. What does this 200 baht for foreigners and 40 baht for Thai actually buy us? nothing, they do not touch the litter and the latest bring all boats to the main pier means they do not need to sit on other beaches to catch the people coming by private speedboat.

The large area near the popular beach has been developed and surprise surprise the park rangers have a massive development here. Guess charging those foreigners 200 baht a time has helped someone.

The park rangers who should be doing something about the rubbish and litter have done nothing since covid began. No longer can park rangers blame tourists for the rubbish and fly tipping. I spent one hour filling bags of rubbish and dumping them in front of the ranger who was sitting back on the ao phrao beach. I spoke to him and asked why he did not clean it, as some of this was obviously rubbish that had sat there for months, there was just the smile .....

Please Thai people do something about this, your heritage is being destroyed and you are paying them to do it. After lockdown this island should be pristine condition, no piles of litter, no old litter sitting on the beaches.

Just a pier.
Jul 2020
Just a pier. No longer pay 20b to exit but the Ranger station is now on the pier with a 200B ticket for ferang and 40B for Thais. Lots of Covid signs, temp checks, Q code check-in and out...all good. Songtaews at the exit to ferry you to your hotel, all very efficient.

A unique piece of Koh Samet, the pier's figure is an interesting piece of the island to welcome you.

Ban Phe > Nadan Pier Ko Samet.
Dec 2019
The main landing area onto Ko Samet. 20 Baht to exit the pier. There are plenty of songtaews waiting to ferry you to your destination, look for the notice of recommended charges. Expect to pay 200b to enter the National Park once through the town, keep the ticket as it is viable for 4/5 days.

I got off my boat and went to the exit and got told to pay 20 baht to enter. No stress. Then I walked through and about 400 metres to my hotel without getting hastled by any taxi guys. Always a good thing for me. It's nice enough and there's restaurants and 7eleven and street food out the front of pier.

Honestly, I used to studied in Thailand and grow up here(Thailand) but I myself who can speak Thai language very well got scam. I took a taxi in Samed from Ao Prao, we agree at 250 bath but otw the driver pick up two foreigners so we suppose to split the price and when we arrived at the destination he take 100 baths from 2 foreigners and charge me 200 bath, even tho I speak fluent Thai language. I will so cheated.

Depending on what ferry or speedboat service you take from the mainland piers, you will arrive to this port on the island. Once you arrive there are taxis and cars that will take you to your resort, hotel, or bungalow. I would suggest to purchase your return boat/bus ticket back to the airport/bangkok before you leave the pier. It is usually cheaper and you can schedule out what time you want to leave the island. Make sure to call beforehand because the LAST boats/ferries back to the mainland leave at 3-5pm. Enjoy your trip!

There are not enough seat for tourists. There are shops that you can buy tickets. Also there are shops for coffee,drink and snack. When you go out, you can see cars which you can take to go around island.
