We have visited Samet Nangshe Viewpoint daytime several times before, and now it was time to stay overnight in a tent to catch the beautiful sunrise. I also hoped to be able to shoot Milky Way at night, but it turned out to be way too cloudy and light polluted. If you decide to go camp here, don’t forget the mosquito spray!
The man in charge was such a friendly dude and helped us start a campfire to keep the mosquitos away, and I saw my chance to grill some corn.
Even though we didn’t get much sleep it was easy to get up; this was what we saw when we opened the tent at 6:20 a.m. Unbelievable!
Phang Nga Bay as its finest!
The sun just above the horizon and the end of the spectacle. Picture taken at 06:40 a.m. Observe my drone in the center of the picture.
My wife’s little brother and girlfriend took some selfies with my GoPro.

Sitting in the restaurant waiting for the pickup truck to come to drive us down to the parking lot. So, how much does it cost to camp here? You can choose between a 350-baht tent (smaller) and a 450-baht tent with the pickup ride included in the prices. There are also very simple bungalows for rent, and if you bring your own tent, you pay 100 baht.
Call the man in charge to reserve a tent at +66(0)81 894 1159. He’s a funny man and speaks English.
