We've just added a new feature story to Travelfish -- "A weekend on Ko Samet". While it has its fair share of detractors, for a short weekend break from Bangkok, Samet is difficult to beat. It's an ideal spot to kill a few days while you're waiting for a visa to be issued in Bangkok, or if you're just looking for a few easy days on the beach.
This feature story accompanies out new coverage on Ko Samet which has been completely re-researched (new map is on the way!) -- it's easily the most up-to-date coverage you'll find -- on or offline.
Enjoy. BTW, if you've been to Samet, please share your experiences here.
