Rent a motorcycle
Motorbikes are the best way to get around the island, they offer you the freedom to explore Koh Samet in your own time, stopping at the beaches for a quick drink or having a swim and a spot of lunch. Given the price of taxis on the island, it is definitely more cost effective to rent a motorcycle. One day hire can be found from 250b for a normal motorcycle, although rates vary depending on the vehicle, the time of year and how busy the island may be. Discounts for multiple days are available. We particularly recommend shops along the main road of the island, as these tend to have the best choice and highest quality of bikes available, have a chat to the guys renting the bikes before you decide where to rent and remember to take some ID, they will take your ID as deposit for the bikes safe return.
