More than 100 mostly uninhabited islands dot the bay, weirdly shaped limestone outcrops swathed in tangles of creepers and shrubs. Some rise sheer from the water, others are humped or jagged and all present a haunting aspect. Get started on your exotic Phang-Nga holiday today with Direct Flights.
Phang-nga is the beautiful bay between Phuket and Krabi. It has an extraordinary number of islands, caves and rocky outcrops, which are preserved in the national marine park of Ao Phang-na. More than 100 mostly uninhabited islands dot the bay, weirdly shaped limestone outcrops swathed in tangles of creepers and shrubs. Some rise sheer from the water, others are humped or jagged and all present a haunting aspect. At Khao Khian pre-historic rock paintings can be seen on the cliffs; Ko Panyi has a Muslim fishing village built on sticks; Ko Phanak is renowned for its beautiful caves, and “James Bond Island” is famous as the location of the movie “The Man with the Golden Gun”.
Inland, Phang-nga province’s major sights are caves, waterfalls, temples and the archaeological site of Ban Thung Tuek.
