What people are saying about Phang Nga Bay

The tour was super nice and exciting. We saw bats, monkeys, jellyfish, birds, eagles and crabs. Add to that the breathtaking tour of the national park. Plant milk for the coffee and vegan muffins would have been nice. But for lunch a large selection was made for me and another vegan, super tasty and varied. Omnivores also liked to drop by and recharge their batteries. A plant-based selection also makes a lot of sense in nature conservation

Everything was absolutely perfect !! Early departure to avoid the crowds Pick up at the hotel Welcome and comments from our French-speaking guide Organization of the day Splendor of the landscapes (Islands, mangroves, caves, beaches) Lunch in a heavenly setting

Fantastic trip, we were an adult group of five and really enjoyed our day going into caves, being kayaked by our guide. We saw monkeys, a baby ray and a walking fish. Food was fab on the boat too. They also had plenty of soap and sanitiser

Well organized from start to finish. That gave our vacation the crowning glory. We hope that the team will get through the difficult time.

everything was perfect, we had an amazing day with amazing tour guides, all very friendly and tasty food and awesome experience
