Pak Meng Pier

This is where most voyages concerning the Trang Islands begin, and the moment you set foot on this pier you will be able to witness the exquisite tropical splendour of these islands and Thailand as a whole.

Ko Muk

This is the most popular first stop on a Trang Islands adventure. It features a range of affordable lodgings, a beautiful white-sand bar on the eastern side known as Hat Sivalai, and spectacular beaches on the west side, Hat Farang, which are eclipsed by looming limestone cliffs.

Ko Kradan

If you’re looking for someplace that is simplistic and isolated then Ko Kradan might just be perfect for you. The island has pristine beaches with fresh powdery sand leading to shallow aquamarine waters.

Ko Ngai

A direct contrast to Ko Kradan, this is one of the most developed of the Trang Islands so it is best to visit Ko Ngai towards the end of the tour so you can feast on expertly prepared Thai cuisine at one of their many restaurants.

Than Prawet Waterfall – Discover the pristine natural beauty of Thailand.

Venture towards the country’s southeast to find the little island of Koh Phangan. Resort and bungalow properties operate during most of the month, to serve visitors looking for a quiet getaway. They cater to party goers during the full moon. This little island in Thailand is asleep for the most part and only comes to life once a month for the famed ‘Full Moon Party’. Hat Rin plays host to the large scale, wild party that welcomes thirty thousand people who all occupy one beach. After the nightlong party, the crowd thins and island returns to its regular slow pace. Koh Phangan is looking to establish itself as a luxurious destination and is already home to Anantara Rasananda Koh Phangan Villas. There is plenty in the way of natural beauty; jungles, pristine bays and waterfalls await discovery.

Than Prawet is one of the two waterfalls in the Thong Nai Pan Noi area of Koh Phangan Island. It is a waterfall that flows year round but can be difficult to find due to the lack of signboards. However, it is worth the extra effort, for avid hikers in particular. In reality, the Than Prawet Waterfall is made up of a series of waterfalls that run alongside each other over great boulders and smaller rocks amidst abundant green foliage.

A hiking trail that follows a stream running to the village stretches two kilometers and will take you to the waterfall. Alternatively, you can opt to reach Than Prawet by making part of the journey by road. You can take a motor vehicle along the road by the bay but the last stretch will need to be made on foot. Hiking on from that point can prove challenging for some. Sturdy footwear is recommended while hiking alone or outside of daylight hours is not advised.

Island Safari – Mountain Tour by Land Rover in Thailand

Koh Samui was once a sleepy remote location, home to only a quiet fishing community; today, Thailand’s largest island is a popular holiday destination. It attracts travellers of all descriptions. Accommodation on the island ranges from beachside bungalows to luxury resorts. Koh Samui is famous for palm-fringed, white, sandy beaches, coconut groves and rugged rainforest. It stands apart from Thailand’s big cities with the frenzied activity that is usually expected. However Koh Samui is known for its raging after dark activity. Chaweng Beach, on which you will find Anantara Lawana Koh Samui Resort, has a party atmosphere and is well known for its cabaret shows.

To explore the mountains of Koh Samui in style take a Land Rover tour and get ready for an adventure. Several tour companies now offer full day or half day trips that take you off road and bring you up close and personal with the highlights of the island. You can expect to see: the famous Grandma and Grandpa rocks located on Lamai Beach; Luang Pordaeng, the mummified monk which is a sacred local relic; Wat Phra Yai or Big Buddha Temple that houses several shrines and statues; the twelve meter tall golden Buddha statue that is the most celebrated landmark in Samui, it can be found on Big Buddha Beach on the northern coast of the island but can be seen several kilometers away. Stunning views await as you drive high into the mountains, along sea cliffs and then into low valleys, like Nuns Valley with its rural villages.

You can pick a tour depending on your interests. Some companies will transport you to and from your hotel and you can expect a tour guide who will explain the attractions and experiences. Refreshments and a traditional meal maybe provided, depending on the type of tour. Animal shows using baby elephants, crocodiles and monkeys are also offered on some itineraries but welfare of the animals is often questionable and in most cases, best avoided.
