    Not puesde pass the opportunity to go if in Phuket or Patong. Looking for a tour that takes you (hotel are more secure than the of the street). Yes arraras online tour (~ $100.00). In the hoter ~ $50.00, you arroraras much so. Yes these in Phuker city ~ 15 minutes to the Bay, Patong ~ 45 minutes at Bay. Check weather (weather) when you go, because if there is bad weather, can be canceled or not visited many of the places. Vusca tour full day and speed boats ($50.00 it more than you pay, or less depends on the company). Don't forget to camera and see clothes being wet. There you mulles, you have to jump in the water (1 to 3 feet deep) to go to the Islands. You will visit more than one island and that includes food. You mojaras, so that complete or bring with you protectors of water for your cellphone, wallet, etc... No te preocutes, te secaras rapid temperature. The boats have juices and water (bottle). He is sit where are engines, there is where you can shoot portraits (within the boat can not at least to pass stopped). If engine it is very noisy and the second you see wear ear protectors. But not you regret (portraits). I e traveled (US Navy / Vacasiones), but here I leave impressed. Again as another look, now that I know more and will do there. Remember to check the weather before planning your trip. Looking for tours departing tempered in the morning, almost always the sea is more relaxed.

    Must see place in Thailand. Very beautiful. White sand, crystal clear water stunning views. Yes, sadly it's very overcrowded, but you won't notice if you just sit and relax :)

    The best and cleanest beachfront one can find in this part of the sea. Take advantage of the possibility of spending a night here to enjoy the empty beach in the morning and snorkeling with less crowds. Generally way less crowded than any of the other islands we've visited. Highly recommended.

    Amaizing white sand beaches and water so clear that you have feeling it is air. Absolutely to see in Thailand - worth to pay more and stay a night or two to see it without crowd (all one-day trip boats arrive/leave/hang around between 10.00 - 16.00)

Where to stay in Phang Nga

Phang Nga does not offer luxurious resorts and features just a handful of budget and mid-range accommodation choices. If you must stay on the main street, ask for a room in the back, or you probably won't be able to sleep from the music and noise blasting throughout the night. Although generally clean, many of the town's old hotels do not all offer hot water, air conditioning, or dependable Wi-Fi. Mid-range hotels, located away from the main street, provide better accommodations with ocean views.
