When you are at Koh Samui – you are very close to the Ang Thong National Marine park, and for sure, you must go there to enjoy the nature.
Being the luxury travellers, we booked a VIP speedboat tour for the marine park as a day trip. The tour was operated by Petcherat Marina, who provided good service and kind guides. Well – their english skills could have been better, but we understood most of it.
The Ang Thong marine park consists of 42 islands, and there i a lot of different places to go. All the islands are really beautiful, with great limestone formations, vegetations and animal life.
One thing you must make sure to see is the green lake – called Emerald Lake or Thale Nai in thai. This lake is situated in the center of the limestone island Mae Ko, and has the most beautiful green color you can imagine. There is a path that you have to walk to get to the highest viewpoint, for sure it is breaking a sweat for.
Other great things to see in the marine park is a lot of different coral reefs at Samsao, Thaiphlao and Wua Kantang Islands.
Here are some pictures from our trip to Ang Thong.
