The eastern side of the island protected from the main swell of the Gulf of Thailand has around thirteen beaches and is the most developed part of the island. In order north to south they are Ao Lukyon, Haad Saikaew (main beach), Ao Phai, Ao Phutsa, Ao Tubtim, Ao Nual, Ao Cho, Ao Wongduern, Ao Thain, Ao Lung Dam, Ao Wai, Ao Kui Na Nok, and Ao Pa Ka Rang.

 

For travel from the main land port close by at Ban Phe you will pay more the speedboat trip the further south the resort is on the island. Only three main beaches are on the eastern side of the island being Ao Kham, Ao Phrao and Ao Kui Na Nai. A sunset tour around the island from 4 - 6.30pm is a relaxing and romantic way to view the island as the sun sets.

 

On most resort beaches you will also find many barbeque restaurants showing the meals on display with related pricing.

My husband and I just arrievd from Bangkok 2 days ago. For temples, I suggest you visit the Grand Palace, the Temple of the Reclining Buddha and the Temple of Dawn. The cheap way of going there is to take a tourist boat from Sathorn Pier at Chao Phraya river to Tha Tien Pier. It cost 30 Baht per way per person.But it cost 150 Baht for a whole day trip, hop on hop off sytle. Sathorn Pier is just below the Saphan Taksin Train station. Tha Tien Pier is only 5 minutes away from the Reclining Buddha and the Grand Palace is about 15 minutes walk. The Temple of Dawn is across the Chao Phraya river and you can take a boat ride for 3 Baht one way. Please visit the Chao Phraya Tourist Boat website.
