Phang Nga is one of the most attractive province in the southwith two spectacular national parks, among other, this is the "limestone world" at Phang Nga Bay and the Similan Marine National Park off Khao Lak. To the north is Ranong and Chumphon, to the east it's Surat Thani and Krabi and at the south west its Phuket. The tropical waters around have spectacular stalactite formations pushing out of the sea and also at the land side
where still plenty of jungle is around. The whole area has a much diversified flora and fauna and of course marvelous beaches. The spectacular landscape attracted several film production companies to use it as a backdrop. One James Bond -the man with the golden colt-and the Beach with Leonardo Di Caprio are the best known and there were several others.
Dense green tropical fauna and emerald water contrast to the yellow and almost white sand of the beaches. There are countless of pretty waterfronts mainly formed around the stalactites and caves.
This can be explored with a boat, long tail boats are most common but also with a kayak. Just paddle into a "hong" which is a natural formed cave where by erosion the top broke and fell down leaving the open sky to be seen.
