Only a couple of kilometers off the bank of Sattahip in the Bay of Thailand lies a lethargic cut of heaven known as Koh Kham [เกาะขาม]. An island is incredibly gorgeous and at this point, an unexpected, yet invaluable treasure, visited for the most part by local people and Thai sightseers.
On the off chance that you’ve never known about Sattahip, it’s generally expected eclipsed by its windbag neighbor – Pattaya. I’m certain we as a whole realize Pattaya pretty well, isn’t that right? Indeed, Sattahip is only 40-something km further south of the city. It’s a curious town known for its neighborhood, easygoing way of life and scrumptious fish.
In the wake of learning about this spot from a Thai voyager and blogger, we realized we needed to visit this spot. Since it looked so particularly astounding as well as the reality it is around 3-3.5-hour drive away from Bangkok. I mean simply see this spot!
Journey to Paradise
We chose to break our excursion to the island into two sections. We left Bangkok on Friday night knowing that assuming we left Saturday morning, we would need to leave very early. Despite the fact that ships to the island leave each 1 or 2 hours, we needed to be the initial ones there. In addition, we heard that they just let 400 guests to the island each day (and just on ends of the week).
Thus, Friday, we showed up in the edge of Sattahip and remained at a store lodging, 30 km shy of the dock. There we had a pleasant supper and an early rest. Next morning at around 7 am, we left for Koh Kham [เกาะขาม].
After about an hour drive, we arrived at the maritime base where we were approached to pay 10 Baht for stopping. Close by, we paid 300 Baht for every individual for the ship tickets. A songthaew (neighborhood transport) then took us to the dock.
From that point we changed to a ship loaded up with local people and Thai-just travelers. They had their snacks stuffed as though they were going on a long outing. It was extremely fascinating to see this since you won’t ever see on islands like Koh Samui, Koh Tao and such.
Following an extremely rough 30 moment ish boat ride, we at last showed up at the island. We needed to change from our ship to a more modest boat as it couldn’t moor there. When we came to, we saw numerous local people hurry to the ocean side to fling anything breakfast they had. It looked as though for some, this was their most memorable boat venture as they woo’d and aah’d at each ascent and crash of the boat. In any case, I think it was all worth the effort for every one of them as they ventured foot on the island.
The side of Koh Kham we showed up at was abandoned (and we needed to hang around here) however we were told by the ship staff to advance toward the opposite side. Just #followthepath, partake in the view yet tread carefully.
