Phang Nga Bay review
Phang Nga Bay forms some of Thailand’s most awe-inspiring scenery. Travelers flock here from Phuket daily on a boat tour to witness spectacular rock formations that protrude from serene waters, discover hidden caves and hongs, explore mangrove forests, and visit floating villages. The main highlight of Phang Nga Bay is the James Bond Island, and there are usually dozens of boats visiting it at the same time from Phuket and Krabi.
Phang Nga Bay spans 42 large and small islands, including Koh Yao islands, Koh Panak, Hong Island, Koh Panyee, James Bond Island, and others. A distinctive feature of Phang Nga Bay is the sheer limestone karsts that jut out vertically from the tranquil emerald green waters. Covering 400 square kilometers, Phang Nga Bay features a diverse ecosystem, where fertile mangrove forests prevail around many islands, preserving its original nature.
One of the best ways to experience the natural beauty of the Phang Nga Bay is by canoe. Many of the rocks are hollowed out and allow it to be paddled across easily. You can come very close to stalactites and stalagmites, which have formed over the decades creating small caves and hongs. The Phang Nga Bay ecosystem includes mangrove forests that grow in seawater, protecting many unique species of flora and fauna. Indeed, Phang Nga Bay promises one of the most interesting eco-adventures Thailand has to offer.
