The Phang-nga archipelago, about two hours north of Phuket, is also an Asian wonder. Phang-nga Bay is a classic scenic spot not to be missed. Hundreds of limestone rocks stand straight up in the sea, a strange and spectacular beauty, with different angles of the beautiful posture, as if the darkness of the flowers everywhere surprises.
You can rent a long-tailed boat and drive through the bay in the early morning, and the limestone boulders look like a Chinese ink painting. Among them is KoPingGun Island, which was once the location of the early OO7 movie “The Man with the Golden Gun”. KohPannyi, another resort, is a Muslim fishing village on the water.
How to get there
Tambon Ko Chang, Amphoe Ko Chang Chang Wat Trat
Approximately 15 minutes by Song Taew from Ao Sapa Lot boat pier.
The 6-kilometer-long beach lined with coconut trees is said to be the most popular and “ideal beach” on Koh Chang.
The water is crystal clear, and as the name “White Sands Beach” (Sai = sand, Khao = white beach in Thai) suggests, it is characterized by its white sands. The surrounding area is lined with stores day and night, and is crowded with many tourists. From the beach, you can see the beautiful sunset and spend a relaxing time.
