Marine Park

17 March

For the last full day we booked a trip to Ang Thong National Marine Park. We found it cheaper to buy the trip from one of those tour sellers at Lamai Center. We got discount of 1000 baht for 3 tickets and it cost us 3000 BAHT for daytrip with lunch and snacks included.

Ang Thong National Marine Park is made up of 42 islands featuring lime stone massifs, tropical rain forests and deserted beaches. The whole trip was full of fascinating views on small islands. The Ang Thong islands rise from the sea as dramatic walls of rock soaring hundreds of meters high. There are many small coves and beautiful beaches, also the erosion has shaped some interesting formations.

We made a stop for beach and snorkeling at Ko Wua Ta Lap. Some people went for kayaking. We did not buy this first. But it seemed that this is not a problem, we bought it there for 500 baht for 2 people. Kayaking was fun, snorkeling was not. There was not much to see in the water. The views from the beach were beautiful and we just enjoyed it.

Next step was made at Koh Mae Ko. There was also a beautiful beach and also an emerald saltwater lake Thale Nai. In order to see that it was needed to climb up.

The whole trip was full of extremly beautiful views. I would suggest exploring in Ang Thon National Marine Park to any nature lover.
