Board a boat at Ao Por pier for this full-day Phang Nga Bay cruise. Marvel at amazing karst formations and pass by Koh Yao, where local fishermen work their small boats. Stop at Koh Hong and spend some relaxing time on the beach. Enjoy a swim in the sea or explore the lush rainforest, surrounded by 300-meter-high limestone walls. Enjoy a Thai buffet, served on board. Take in views of the many islands and hidden beaches and lagoons as the cruise continues. Meet a family living in island caves and learn about how they support themselves. Make another stop to swim or relax on the sun deck. Savor freshly made pancakes with banana and chocolate sauce before returning to the Ao Por pier.
Following pick-up from your hotel in Khao Lak, board a traditional longtail boat and experience the mangrove forests and karst formations from a different perspective. Get up close to the limestone rocks on a short canoe trip before heading to Khao Phing Kan. Marvel at rock formations such as Tapu Island and James Bond Island, used as a film location in the movie "The Man With The Golden Gun." Continue to the floating Muslim village of Koh Panyi, where you will enjoy a delicious lunch. Next, go to Suwan Khuha Cave Temple to see the statue of the reclining Golden Buddha. Get some time to feed the resident monkeys before the return trip to Khao Lak.
