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!
Samet Nangshe Viewpoint in Tha Yu, Phang Nga Province, was discovered not long ago by the professional photographer Khun Theerasak Saksritawee. In just a short time, this place has gone from being completely unknown to have a pathway from the roadside up to the viewpoint. The entrance fee to climb up is 30 baht for Thais and 50 baht for tourists (free entry for children). You can even rent a tent for 350 baht or stay in a bungalow for 500 baht if you want to spend the night photographing the night sky.
