I like to go for snorkeling at the islands. Because I like a clear sea and nice beach of the island. However travelling to the southern part in the past was take time, I had to go by bus in the evening and arrived in the early morning of the next day then caught the boat to the island in the morning.
I thought if there is any island which has a clear sea and white beach close to Bangkok it might be good. I started to look for the travelling place near Bangkok from that time. I realised that there are many nice island close to Bangkok, that I no need to travel overnight on the bus. Most of the islands are located in the Eastern part of Thailand. Every islands still have the nice beach and sea in my dream. Now if I have limited time, I just go to Chonburi or Rayong for snorkeling.
One travelling place that I will bring you to get the sea view and take a rest is located at Chuck Samet harbour at SattahipChonburi it is called Nang Ram beach.
Where is the Name Nang Ram beach come from?
In the past this place doesn't have name, it's just only a beach. From the story told by the local villagers said the word Nang Ram is the name of the small island opposite to the Nang Ram beach. This island had no living people and no one visit there. One day the music was heard from this island, so the people called this island as Nang Ram Island, meanwhile the beach was called Nang Ram beach until now
