Taking a break from work, and wanting to explore some more of Thailand’s aquatic beauty, we headed to Anthong National Marine Park. Promised a day of snorkelling, island-hopping, beautiful views, a delicious lunch, and kayaking, we were excited to head to this incredible area off the shores of Surat Thani Province.
Located in The Gulf of Thailand, the 102 square metre area boasts 41 undeveloped islands, as well as Koh Paluay which has been inhabited by sea-gypsies. The protected park can easily be accessed via Koh Samui and Koh Phangan with various tour companies. Please be sure to enquire if your tour includes the entrance fee to the park
From snorkelling around Koh Woa, heading to a viewpoint of surrounding islands and the Emerald Lake on Talay Nai, as well as having a traditional Thai lunch on Koh Paluay, this national park has so much to offer its visitors.
