During a day on the beach you will see these guys walk around with sarongs to sell. They have a ton of designs to choose from and they will ask you anywhere from 150 - 200 Baht for one. The lowest my guy would settle with was 100 Baht so we got one...

If you are sitting near the beach at a restaurant or something they will come up to you and bother you every single time they walk by, it can get a bit annoying at times, but ive seen alot worse elsewhere. Once you say no they will walk away in most cases.

What to pay: 100 Baht

Directions: Anywhere on the beaches of Ko Samet
