Looking to spend 5 nights, Mon-Sat ,last week in September, eat Thai food, read a book, have a few beers but not party all night.
Samed looks good but is there a chance the ferries will be cancelled due to adverse weather? Would be my first choice as it seems more laid back and Thai.
Prefer small hotels but Novotel in Rayong is offering very good deal with Bht500 towards F&B per day, which would pay for a few beers, although want to eat out local. Several reviewers have said there are small beach bars/eateries within walking distance.
On my own but quite happy with that!
