I am six months pregnant and I wanted to go to Samet next weekend- can I still ride on the speedboat there? Or should I take the slow ferry?

A speedboat ride is not recommended for pregnant women. Although the ride to Koh Samet is quite short, it still might be bumpy. And depending on the speed your boat will be going, it might hit some waves very harshly. Go with the safe option and take the ferry. Better safe than sorry.
