While waiting for our boat to Ko Samet, and later our bus back to Bangkok, we had time to do a little walking around in the port town of Ban Phe. Most people going to Ban Phe seem to be going elsewhere, mainly a stop before going to Ko Samet. The town feels like a little sleepy seaside town, just to my liking! I’m assuming it would be a cheaper place to stay than Ko Samet, at least the food was, and it still has beaches. This is a place I want to investigate more the next time we go to Ko Samet.
