Samui Plus Sandbox

Samui Plus

What is Samui Plus Sandbox program?

Samui Plus Sandbox is a pilot programme that allows foreign tourists who have been fully vaccinated to enter the country. Capable of travelling in the vicinity of Koh Samui, Koh Phangan, and Koh Tao to promote the economy and tourism while adhering to public health safety regulations in the midst of the COVID-19 virus pandemic. On July 15, 2021, the project was launched.

The "Samui Plus" model's genesis

The Samui Plus Sandbox Model will open up a narrow space like an island. It is practical to limit tourist regions and manage admission and departure. This includes being able to plan travel based on conditions only on the route or defined area (sealed route).

Then there was the area’s preparation. Under the circumstances, the population on all three islands, namely Koh Samui, Koh Phangan, and Koh Tao, has received at least 70% vaccination and is ready for personnel related to SOP (Standard Operating Procedures), such as boat/vehicle drivers, restaurants, tour companies, wellness businesses, hotel staff in front, SHA Plus Manager, and hotel volunteers.

It involves the construction of four command centres with provincial and district operations. Disease control and prevention measures have been put in place. Those who are permitted to enter the Kingdom are in the districts of Koh Samui, Koh Phangan, and Koh Tao.

Traveling in the area, including sightseeing, must adhere to the Samui Plus Model. Na Phra Lan Pier has three berths to avoid being used by public boats. Ban Mae Haad Pier and Thong Sala Pier

It also includes a three-tiered incident response strategy.

-More than 20 cases of illness in the area, mild cases.

-mild to fairly severe If it is discovered to spread three connected clusters within two weeks, public health actions will be implemented in accordance with the stated requirements.

-The most serious instance is that of more than 40 tourists infected by the project in less than two weeks, and the widespread epidemic is difficult to manage in order to return to normal conditions. The project will have to be scrapped.

Nang Ram Beach (Sattahip beaches)

Nang Ram Beach

       Nang Ram Beach is located adjacent to Nang Rong Beach. Sattahip Naval Base, Sattahip District, Chonburi Province, inside Chuk Samet Pier. It is a popular tourist destination with a lovely beachfront setting. There’s a sandy beach and crystal-clear water. In addition to the gorgeous environment, the beach is open to the entire public. Nang Ram Beach also features full amenities, such as a club that serves food and drinks, particularly fresh seafood, at cheap prices. The hotel offers both air-conditioned and non-air-conditioned rooms. Nang Ram Beach stretches for roughly 200 metres along the coast. The Laem Pu Chao, at the end of the beach, is the enshrined location of the Krom Luang Chumphon Khet Udomsak Shrine. 

Nang Ram Beach

What is the origin of the name?

       In the past, this beach was not always like this. There was no name. Later, it was known as “Nang Ram Beach” because of the traditions and stories told by the inhabitants. According to them, Nang Ram Beach does not have a name. It is an uninhabited island that few people visit. People visit the seashore to go fishing. There was a loud sound of amazing music emanating from this island one day. The people then dubbed this island “Koh Nang Ram” and referred to it as such until now. The beach on the opposite side has been labelled “Nang Ram Beach.” The beach can be traveled every day, although it will be extremely crowded on holidays. Foreigners can enter the beach for the same price as Thais.


Nang Ram Beach

       When you get to Nang Ram Beach, it is the first beach that tourists encounter. The beach is approximately 500 metres long, with pine trees providing shade throughout the length of the beach. The water is crystal clean, the sand is fine, the beach gradually dips towards the sea, the water is shallow and ideal for swimming. The section of Nang Ram Beach adjacent to Nang Rong Beach includes pebbles and rubble on the beach, making it unsuitable for swimming but ideal for photography. A little rocky promontory is located at the end of Nang Ram Beach. Between Nang Ram and Nang Rong beaches is a statue of Phra Aphai Mani and the Nang Phisuea Samudr, which is one of the beach’s landmarks and from which travellers can walk across to Nang Rong beaches.

Nang Rong Beach

       When visitors walk through Nang Ram Beach, they will see “Nang Rong Beach”. Visitors can either walk or drive to the beach. Nang Rong Beach is a quiet beach with no shops, trampolines, or other amenities. It is not at all like Nang Ram Beach. The beach area appears to be natural. The broad beach area is rarely shaded by trees. The beach is approximately 700 metres long. A mountain range stretches into the water at the beach’s end. The water is clearer here than at Nang Ram Beach, but there are more rocks beneath the surface. Tourists are permitted to swim, but they must use caution due to the presence of stone cuts.

Nang Ram Beach

       Overall, Nang Rong Beach is more suited to those who value seclusion, nature, and white sand than Nang Ram Beach. Because Nang Rong Beach is a wide open expanse of sand. There is no dam line in the centre of the water, like there is at Nang Ram Beach. The sea water runs easily, there is no debris on the beach, clean water, soft waves, and you may swim.

How to travel

       Take the expressway from Bangkok to both beaches. Long arrived at Chonburi until the motorway ended. Then take Highway 36 to Pattaya, and then Sukhumvit Road from Pattaya City. Until Sattahip, this road will run parallel to Pattaya Beach. Turn right at the Sattahip Crossroads and continue along Highway No. 3 until you reach the intersection with Queen Sirikit Hospital. Turn right and continue straight until you reach the sign for the Naval Special Warfare Unit. The battle fleet is on the left; turn into it to reach Nang Ram Beach; continue straight to reach Nang Rong Beach.

Dongtan beach, Pattaya

Dongtan beach

      Dongtan Beach is yet another lovely beach. This beach is located in Pattaya, Chonburi, between South Pattaya and Jomtien. However, it will not be the same beach as “Ao Dungtan” at Sattahip Naval Base, which many tourists have misidentified due to a very similar name. Dongtan Beach is popular and crowded with vacation homes, but tourists can enjoy peace and quiet here. If you want to avoid the crowded umbrellas and trampolines of Jomtien Beach, Dongtan Beach is the best option. Because there are fewer tourists than at Jomtien Beach, the beaches here are larger and cleaner, and the water is clearer. It makes you want to go swimming in the sea even more.

Dongtan beach

There is no beach road at Dong Tan Beach, like there is at Jomtien Beach. As a result, there are fewer people here. It’s more difficult to find a stall or a shopping cart here. That’s why sunbathing or relaxing on a trampoline beneath the shaded Malabar trees will provide you with some seclusion. However, obtaining facilities is not as difficult as you may believe. Because convenience stores, restaurants, and service businesses are just a short walk away from Jomtien Beach, you can take advantage of them.


       If you want to relax in peace while admiring the beautiful sea, This Dongtan Beach is highly recommended by us. At Dongtan Beach, you can spend your vacation in perfect harmony with a good atmosphere and rest in seclusion. If you visit Pattaya, don’t forget to go to the beach.
