Koh Hong, Krabi

This Hong (Thai for ‘room’) can only be entered by dinghy or small motorboat from the shallow lagoon at high to middle tide, or from the open-water entrance on the south-western corner of the island at low tide.

The hong, which gives the island its name, is a stunningly beautiful, enclosed pool with a large rock chimney opening to the sky. Once inside, you will find perfect opportunities for photography, relaxing or exploring.

The noteworthy Mu Koh Hong archipelago is a most striking and unique rock formation. About 12 islets lay in line vertically stretching from the north to the south in Phang-Nga and the Krabi sea.

Koh Kudu

The island is small stepping stone located to the north of Koh Yao Noi. It is destined to be famous as it has been very popular in the past. The surrounding area is relatively quiet for sunbathing and relaxing.

Koh Yao Yai (Long Island)

The island boasts attractions such as Ao Klong Son (Klong Son bay) a white sandy beach, surrounded by pine trees with a low cliff of colourful rock formations to one side. The bay is a magnet to those interested in coral.

Ao Tee Kood (Tee Kood bay) also flaunts a stunning, white, sandy beach sheltered by shady pine trees. At Ao Hin Kong (Hin Kong bay) the beach is shaded by tropical forest although this area is not suitable for swimming. The speciality at this location is live fish and rays caught by the mostly Muslim village fishermen.

Koh Pak Bia

This is a small island behind a second island, surrounded by an array of more islands both small and large, easily accessible from Phuket, Phang Nga or Krabi. Sit and sunbathe lazily on the quiet, shady, tree-dotted beach, or the clear, limpid water is an irresistible invitation to any swimmer. At low tide, this idyllic beach forms a land bridge of sand dunes to its twin.

Koh Phak Bia is a charming island. The most stunning spot is the white sandy cape, surrounded by clear seawater. This is popular with visitors who can enjoy a 360-degree view of numerous tiny islands in the waters around Krabi, Phang Nga and Koh Yao Noi. Experience amazing snorkelling around the sandy cape and glide over colourful coral, only 50-metres away.

Koh Lao La Ding or Paradise Island.

An island enveloped in natural beauty among clear waters and concealing secluded privacy, Koh Lao La Ding is a small island with a U-shaped white, sandy beach laced between limestone cliffs. It is inhabited by a group of people who have a concession on the swallows’ nests on the cave ceilings which they guard 24 hours a day. The island offers visitors the opportunity to explore and enjoy swimming in Paradise or enjoy sunbathing on the beach, snorkelling, and appreciating the fabulous sight of the emerald sea.

Koh Nok

For a true return to nature there can be few more likely sites anywhere in the world. This intriguing island, secluded and unspoilt, is the ultimate retreat from the traps and trappings of modern life. While taking a leisurely kayak through the mangroves, there is a real opportunity of getting back in touch with the sights and sounds of a natural environment and forging memories that will endure a lifetime.

LIFE: THAI-STYLE

Useful Thai Phrases

Thai language is not easy but Thai people appreciate the visitors’ attempt to communicate even a very little in their own language. The following phrases might help you to bring out some of the famous Thai smiles in those you meet.

As a term of polite respect, Thai people add the word “Krab” if you are male or “Ka” if you are female, to the end of what they are saying. Try it. Thai people don’t bite and it will make you feel good, too.

Sawat-dee, Krab / Ka Hello : Chai Krab / Ka Yes
Sabai dee mai, Krab / Ka How are you? : Mai Chai Krab / Ka No
Sabai dee, Krab / Ka I’m fine : Kob Khun Krab / Ka Thank you
Aroi It’s delicious : Hue I’m hungry
Im I’m full
Hong Nam Yoo Tee Nai, Krab / Ka :
Where is the toilet, please?

KOH YAO NOI

Koh Yao Noi is a lush tropical locale far from the pressures and demands of the modern world. This virtually unspoilt island bathes in the emerald and turquoise waters of Phang Nga Bay, half-way between Phuket and Krabi, draped in luxuriant folds of evergreen jungle. Koh Yao Noi has been spared the blemish of modernity that afflicts other islands in the Andaman Sea. The local population farms and fishes; the night-life is sedate. Time here is not spent, it is treasured.

KOH KUDU

Resembling something from a fantasy novel with a stern pillar of rock guarding the entrance to the shallow, sandy bay, Koh Kudu is certainly worth a few selfies. You can reach the breath-taking beauty of this jungle-draped tropical island by long-tailed boat or you can charter the Kudu Wanderer to take a group on a voyage of discovery. For the more energetic it is only a couple of spectacular hours’ kayaking along the coast. Once on the island, enjoy nature at its finest.
