In southern Thailand, you can experience a piece of paradise at Phang Nga Bay, which has inspired adventures and stories of surprising and happy encounters. Phang Nga Bay is noted for distinctive rock formations – hundreds of limestone cliffs jut out over the sea.
If cave walks, prehistoric art, and nature parks appeal to you, Phang Nga is the place for you. Beyond the superb rock formations and limestone cliffs, the place is replete with hauntingly mesmerizing national parks.
If you wish to go on a speedboat tour, you can see for yourself the unusual eco-system thriving at Ko Panak and Ko Hong, then check out Tapu island and Ko Ping-Gan (otherwise known as the “James Bond Island”) before proceeding to Koh Talu where you can find a mangrove swamp and the huge sea caves of Tham Lod Noi and Tham Lod Yai. There’s also Ko Khai Nai Island which will entice you to snorkel, swim, or simply relax. An excursion to Phang Nga Bay will bring you to a Mosque and an encounter with some Muslim sea gypsies who make a living from the sea. Enjoy a canoe ride into the bay that will bring you to a fantastic exploration of about four islands.
If elephant trekking is your cup of tea, take the off-the-beaten option and go for the rafting & trekking tour. Phang Nga Province beckons with its rich floral and fauna. Go bamboo rafting and see wonderful sights that include tropical birds, exotic hanging fruits and bathing water buffaloes.
Let a thrilling elephant ride along mountain paths cap your day. When traveling with family members, they’d surely have a great time watching elephant antics like picking up leaves with its trunk, and be amazed at how it can adroitly navigate narrow pathways. Oh, and don’t forget to dress appropriately to enjoy these one-of-a-kind experiences.
