Presentation

Located 75 km from Khao Lak, 40 km from Phang Nga Town and 70 km from Phuket, the Samet Nangshe Viewpoint ( pronounce samett nang shee) offers the most beautiful viewpoint overlooking Phang Nga Bay. Discovered by the professional photographer Khun Theerasak Saksritawee whose pictures made a big buzz, the place quickly became very popular and has grown at great speed to accommodate visitors so that today there are 4 viewpoints with Sametnangshe Boutique hotel which offers luxury rooms for a hundred euros a night with breathtaking views over the bay. But you can also rent tents to wake up with one of the most amzing views in Thailand (see contacts and information below). On this page, I put the GPS coordinates of the original viewpoint which offers, in my opinion, the best view. You will easily see the other ones on the map by following the link to GoogleMap. If sleeping here is really nice and romantic, you will be far from everything and therefore a bit blocked to see anything else except if you have your own transportation but still it is far from everything interesting except Phang Nga bay of course. It is possible to visit Phang Nga Bay and James Bond Island by boat from the viewpoint or one of its hotels. But in my opinion a night or two here is enough.

Be aware that if during the week days the attendance remains very reasonable, the palce can be very very crowded during weekends and public holidays in Thailand. There are sometimes kilometers of trafic jam to get there. It is also a good idea to book your room or tent a lot in advance if you want to stay there for a weekend or holiday.

Practical information about Samet Nangshe Viewpoint

Whether to go up to Samet Nangshe Viewpoint that I've put the GPS coordinates on the top of the page or for the nearby Sametnangshe Boutique Hotel where you can just go to just eat or drink, there's a pickup service to take you upstairs. It costs 90 THB per person (30 THB if you go to the viewpoint by walking but I do not recommend it). The road to the viewpoint shakes a lot, there is an intermediate viewpoint accessible without much effort by walking but the higher one is so much more beautiful and harder to reach !
You can also rent bungalows or tents at the viewpoint itself. Renting a 2 person tent costs 350 THB and a 3 person cost 450 THB while a bungalow (they are quite basic) costs 700 THB a night. You can call 084-8469427 or 087-918-7895 (mobile numbers) to book accommodation on Samet Nangshe Viewpoint. The viewpoint opens from 5 am to 10 pm, which allows you to go there for sunrise and/or sunset while the Sametnangshe Boutique only opens to non-guests of the hotel at 10am. It also rents tents.
To come to Samet Nangshe Viewpoint, if you have booked a room or a tent, you can also ask for a pickup service from Phuket or Khao Lak otherwise it will be better to have your own transportation or to reach Phang Nga Town by bus first and there find a private transport or taxi or an excursion via a local agency to get to Samet Nangshe Viewpoint.
