What To Expect

Explore the famous Phang Nga Bay and its surrounding islands in this easy, leisurely day trip from Phuket. Phang Nga Bay lies between Phuket and Krabi, with spectacular limestone rock formations and dozens of small islands.

Your first stop after departing Royal Phuket Marina is Hong Island. It is a great place if you are looking to escape the touristy atmosphere often found in Thailand beaches. Take your time and paddle around this beautiful island. The emerald color of the water will make you feel like you are in a dream!

If you have seen the James Bond movie The Man with the Golden Sun, you will probably recognize Koh Tapu (Nail Island) the symbol of Phang Nga Bay. Due to its Hollywood appearance, the area attracts lots of tourists, yet it is still a spectacular scene to see the gravity-defying islet grows just vertically out of the water.

Next, explore the secret nature of Mangrove Cave and Diamond Cave on Panak Island before having lunch at Panyee Island, the famous floating Muslim village. The history of this village and the simple lifestyle will for sure leave lasting impressions on your trip.

After lunch, enjoy your free time on the beach of Lawa Island or Na Ka Island before heading back to your hotel in Phuket.

Still have question?

How do I book on Inspitrip?

For most experiences on Inspitrip, there are two options: Small Group and Private tour. For both options, you can chat with your local guide and other people in your group even before the trip takes place.
  • Small group tour: operates with a maximum number of people. If you like to make new friends, this is a great option. You would pay for the trip to confirm your slot, then join a chat group with your local guide as well as fellow travel buddies, everything would be on Inspitrip. Get to know them!
  • Private tour: maximize your privacy and allows you to freely customize the itinerary. First, request to communicate any specific needs you may have, wait a couple minutes for these requests to be confirmed, and then you can proceed to payment.

What are the cancellation and refund policies?

Cancellation is free if you cancel up to 48 hours before the trip date. We believe that this is the fairest way to ensure that both our travelers and local guides are happy.

Does the Small Group option still operate if there are less than the maximum number of people signed up?

Yes, even if you are the only person who signs up for the trip on a given date, the tour will still take place.
