Mu Ko Ang Thong National Marine Park
Angthong, meaning “Golden Basin” in Thai, is a 42-island group that makes up the country's enormous marine reserve. Whether you're looking for a scenic hike to a turquoise lagoon, a bird's-eye view of the entire archipelago, or indulging in snorkeling, canoeing, kayaking, swimming, or sunbathing, there's no shortage of things to do and places to see here to make your trip memorable.Talay Nai, or Emerald Lake, is a saltwater lagoon on the island of Koh Mae Koh, one of the basin's most well-known destinations. The secluded Emerald Lake, which can only be reached via a climb along millennia-old limestone cliffs, was the setting for the Hollywood film The Beach, which was shot here in the early 2000s. Koh Wao Yai, also known as the "island of the sleeping dragon," is a popular spot for water sports thanks to its numerous swim-throughs and semi-hidden caverns. Most excursions end with a stop at Koh Wua Talap, a vantage point that offers unobstructed views of the Golden Basin. Hiking up and down the 500-meter-high vantage point would take roughly 45 minutes.A broad range of tours are available to this marine park, including day trips on private boats, group snorkeling excursions, and even private sunset cruises. A hidden gem of Thailand's natural beauty, Angthong National Marine Park is a must-see for nature lovers and thrill-seekers alike.Planning A Trip To Thailand, Book Our Thailand Tour Packages Now!
