Phang Nga Bay and National Park

Phang Nga Bay, Phang Nga Bay, James Bond Islands, Phang Nga Bay National Park, Ao Phang Nga National Park
Thailand, Phuket
In 1981, Phang Nga Bay was declared the Phang Nga Bay National Park. More than 80% of the park is occupied by the Andaman Sea and only 20% is located on the coast. The area of ​​the park is 400 sq. km. and here is the largest area of ​​mangrove forests in southern Thailand. In total, the national park includes about 100 islands, of which only 42 are more or less large. Most of them are uninhabited, many have impressive caves and tunnels leading to hidden lagoons, and the best way to see them is by canoe and kayak. Each islet is unique, has a beautiful shape, some have beautiful beaches. Here, the water is always calm and limestone rocks of bizarre shape seem to “come out” of the sea. Sea caves with stalactites several meters long are hidden in many rocks. The most popular islands in the bay are Khao Ping Kan and Koh Tapu (James Bond Islands), Panak and Panui.
The most affordable option for exploring the bay is as part of a group tour. There are a lot of them offered from Phuket - tours are advertised as a trip to the "James Bond Island".

In fact, I heard a lot of negative feedback about this park from friends. In fact, they expected white sand and blue water. Everything is different here - emerald-colored water and incredible rocks. Our best photos are from this park. We went as part of a two day tour and really enjoyed it.

Choosing excursions at the hotel, I definitely signed up for a visit to Phang Nga Bay. This place has fascinated me since I was young. I wanted to see the rock-island in the middle of the bay! Now, at home, I am still impressed by Thailand! But it's just space when you float among the rocks covered with trees going into the sky. The sea and the coast were not impressed, but the rocks - yes!
