Ang Thong National Marine Park is a spectacularly protected archipelago of 42 islands located in the Gulf coast of Thailand, famous for its natural beauty and its wealth of coral and exotic marine life. With its literal translation of ‘golden bowl’, you can see why it gets thousands of visitors each year through its unique limestone islands and cliffs rising out from the sea. The islands are covered by tropical rain forests and are named for their distinct geography; for instance ‘Sleeping Cow island’ and ‘Three Pillar Island’. Most of the islands are situated next to each other making it ideal for a magnificent sail around the marine park. Its caves, hidden lagoons, shallow coral reefs and white sand beaches are many of the wonders here. These island hold many hidden treasures amongst them, which is why it is a must see.
Entrance fees to the national parks are excluded from price and collected in our office before the tour. Adult – 300B, Child – 150B, Baby – free
