DESTINATION: PHUKET - PHANG NGA
Phang Nga is a masterpiece of nature – an intoxicating mix of vibrant colours and spectacular sights that, once tasted, linger long. From a lush landscape to the azure waters of bays and the sheer, resonating beauty of islands, this southern destination’s embrace is warm indeed.
The province is located on the Andaman Sea just north of Phuket. Travellers are greeted by the white sand of long stretches of glorious beaches - no finer than Natai Beach - that shimmer under a tropical sun and a culture rooted in friendliness and hospitality. The province’s main tourist area is Khao Lak, where the surrounds are augmented by numerous hotels and an array of bars, shops and restaurants. The area omits a chilled-out buzz that hums in the ears of travellers and creates a mellow cadence to their adventures.
It is through the palate that Thailand and Phang Nga’s impact is, for many people, its most profound. The ambiance of fun that permeates throughout Thai culture has nurtured a love of cooking and led to the creation of some of the best dishes in the world. Southern Thai cuisine is heavily influenced by Malay, Indonesian and Indian spices. It enlivens taste buds and enslaves minds. There are also excellent international food options.
No trip to Phang Nga is complete without getting close up and personal with the destination’s outdoor treasures, whether that be trekking, canoeing or fishing. There’s also island snorkelling and diving at the world-renowned Similan Islands, a refulgent reef structure that proves the area is just as enthralling on the water as it is on land.
