Three fairly intrepid females, rocking up in Ko Samet for 10 days on 6 August. We want to be able to laze on a beach, eat good food, have a few drinks, not be smack-bang in a tourist trap area and would love to do some yoga, fishing and Thai cooking. Any recommendations for places to stay? Any price range at the moment although the accomodation should have private bathroom, A/C and be on/right next to a beach - something like Star Huts on Koh Phanang would be great. Any recs for fishing trips? I love sea fishing and would like to do some if possible. Any yoga and Thai cooking school suggestions? Thanks in advance.
An update for anyone interested. We went and stayed on Ko Samet at Tubtim Resort - we had fan rooms for 1,000 Baht a night excluding breakfast. The resort is well located, clean, lots of hot water and no problems with the electricity.
We used www.taxikohsamet.com for our transfer from Bangkok airport to the pier at Ban Phe and they charged 2,000 Baht which, although vastly more expensive than the bus, it was super easy. about 7 years ago
