The sheen of emerald green waters and mesmerizing limestone karsts make Phang Nga Bay an adored travel destination. This article is a brief guide to exploring Phang Nga Bay.
How to plan a day outing in Phang Nga Bay
Fortunately, it is possible to explore the ethereal Phang Nga Bay in just one day. You can leave your luxury hotel in Phuket for the day and plan a day outing. Check with hotels like the SAii Laguna Phuket to see if they accommodate airport transport for day outs.
The trick is to plan your day well and pick the best spots for your travel palate. Start with a boating adventure past the limestone cliffs. The sheltered waters are calm all year round, and you can bask in the scenic environs and gaze at wildlife.
When is the best time to explore Phang Nga Bay
The ‘cool’ season in this beautiful bay lasts from December to January.
Sea Kayaking in Phang Nga Bay
You can also try sea kayaking to see the ‘hong’ (hidden microcosms) with wild plants and creatures thriving in collapsed cave systems nestling close to limestones and open to the blue skies. You get to paddle fibreglass boats through the mysterious caves near islands like Koh Panak and Koh Hong.
Visiting the Koh Panyee in Phang Nga Bay
Afterwards, you can discover the charms of the Koh Panyee village with its stilt structures and oceanfront restaurants. Once an entirely self-subsisting fishing village, Koh Panyee’s population depends on tourism and a side of stilt fishing.
