One of the top adventures in Thailand, paddling around Phang Nga Bay inside marine limestone karst islands with various wild animals seen from your own kayak is an amazing experience. Add to this, dining under the stars and the adventure is complete!
What to Expect
After pick up from your hotel, you head towards Phang Nga Bay. There are 42 islands located in the Phang-Nga Bay National Park and commencing by cruise gives the best view of this fascinating land- and seascape with limestone cliffs, rising vertically out of the sea. Part of the incredible limestone karst formations that have made the area a backdrop for countless international movies.
Legends tell that sea creatures are responsible for these sometimes surreal images and when looking at it, it indeed fits the profile of a mythological legend. To get up and close and to further explore the secret corners and hidden caves, you board kayaks to enter the ‘hongs’; washout caves, created from the tidal differences by the sea. Lunch will be included on board the cruise before kayaking commences through the many tunnels and lagoons.
Outside of kayaking, you will be offered the opportunity to cool down, relax and even partake in the creation of your own Krathong: a decorative float that the Thai people set sail on streams and rivers during the Loi Krathong festival on the evening of the full moon of the 12th month in the traditional Thai lunar calendar (annually celebrated in November.
As night falls, you can launch your Krathong under the starry night in the bay while making a wish for good health and prosperity for yourself and those you hold dear. On the way back to Phuket, a sumptuous buffet dinner is served with ‘Star Games’ entertainment outside on the deck. You are expected to arrive back on mainland Phuket and at your resort before 21:30 hrs.
