Khao Laem Ya – Mu Ko Samet National Park

Posted on October 9, 2017 in Activities

Khao Laem Ya – Mu Ko Samet National Park is located in Rayong, Thailand just down the street from Mae Rumphueng Beach. Comprised of 81,875 rai (131 square kilometres or 50 square miles), the national park is actually split into two portions.

The first half of Khao Laem Ya Mu Ko Samet National Park is on the mainland next to Ban Phe and Mae Rumphueng Beach. The huge hilltop here can be dominates the coastline and can be seen many kilometres away.

The second half of Khao Laem Ya Mu Ko Samet National Park is located on Koh Samet island. Most of the island is officially part of the national park. The foreigner entry fee is 200 baht. However all ticket work on both halves of the national park for an entire week, so make sure to visit both.

Traveled the world for a decade then came to Rayong for one week. Two years later, still here 😂🏖 When not relaxing on Mae Rumphueng Beach or exploring Rayong, I produce travel videos and off the beaten path travel guides for The HoliDaze.

About The Author

In early 2016 I came to Rayong for one week. I’m still here. My name is Derek Freal, a cubicle escapee turned professional travel blogger who spent almost 8 years as a nomad before discovering the beaches of Rayong on my fourth trip to Thailand. Although I still travel the world for work, you can find me here anytime I have a few weeks off work, exploring, eating and drinking my way around the Rayong 😉
