One Of The Most Beautiful Places On Earth !!! – Snorkeling Trip To Koh Hong and Neighbor Islands – Thailand

When the boat went inside the mesmerizing laguna I was breathless, what a unique and unspoiled place!
Soon, the other boats were off and we were there at that paradise all alone, being overtaken by its beauty.
The new drone laws in Thailand didn’t allow us to give you a wider perspective of the place, yet maybe that’s not by chance. Perhaps, a little mystery will make it even better when your eyes seat on it for the first time.

Here all addresses and extra info from everything you saw on the video:

One Of The Most Beautiful Places On Earth !!! - Snorkeling Trip To Koh Hong and Neighbor Islands - Thailand

Our hotel was a budget beachfront bungalow with simple bamboo rooms and private cold shower.
Prices were around 600-700 baht per night at the time we stayed (high season).

 

Koh Hong – เกาะห้อง
Koh Hong Laguna GPS: 8.079169, 98.676429 (copy and paste in map’s search bar for exact location)
Koh Hong Beach GPS: 8.079212, 98.680528 (copy and paste in map’s search bar for exact location)

Entering the laguna by boat is free, those wishing to visit the beachside will have to pay a 300 baht National Park conservation fee.
This is one of the top places to see, don’t skip it! If you’re staying in Phuket, Phi Phi or other nearby islands I would recommend you to arrange a day trip, you won’t regret it.

 

Koh Laolading – เกาะเหลาลาดิง
GPS: 8.104116, 98.682534 (copy and paste in map’s search bar for exact location)

As the bay is quite small, depending at the time of the day you stop by, the island will be really crowded.
Still, it is definitely a stunning place but if you wish to avoid crowds plan to start your trip early or to make a different route than the majority of the boats.

 

Koh Pak Bia – เกาะผักเบี้ย
GPS: 8.117530, 98.675635 (copy and paste in map’s search bar for exact location)

The two islets divided by a shallow body of water are a cool place to lay in the sand and do nothing, go for a swim or just explore the surroundings.

 

Monkey Island
With this one, I will have to say sorry but no GPS location, what happened is that the boatman informed us the name as “Monkey Island”, the way they advertise it to tourists. Unfortunately, that’s not the Thai name after translation and as there are many islands around this area, it’s really hard to point the right one out.
Don’t worry though, if you grab a snorkeling/diving trip, they will know what you’re talking about and will be able to bring you there.

 

Koh Nok – เกาะนอก
GPS: 8.080076, 98.627353 (copy and paste in map’s search bar for exact location)

Just another piece of heaven.

 

Baan Chang Restaurant
Address: Pasai Beach, Koh Yao Noi

Open from 10:30 am to 10:30 pm.

Beautiful restaurant with traditional ambiance and a few veganizable options on the menu.

Nice space counting with vegan ice-cream and vegan cheese-less pizza.

While in Thailand it is almost a duty to have regular Thai massages.😜

Snorkeling Trip To The 3 Khai Islands! – Koh Yao Yai, Thailand

With the most amazing news in mind (click here if you don’t know what i’m talking about), we depart to our scheduled snorkeling trip to the 3 Khai Islands.
The Khai islands are located very near Koh Yao Yai, a long tail boat is enough for the trip. There are tours coming from other islands by speed boat but that is not necessary if you’re staying in Koh Yao Yai.
They are pretty white sand tinny islands counting with bars and limited food and snacks.

Sunbath chairs placed in the shadow are rented for overpriced fees at all the 3 islands, depending on the day and time of your visit you’ll understand how hot it gets in the otherwise shadeless islands and may even agree to pay the price for the desired sun relieve.
The water is crystal clear for swimming yet not as clear for snorkeling, the visibility is compromised and there’s not much to see underwater apart from some small fish (this may change with time and season) and mostly hard coral.
It is a nice time out for those staying in Koh Yao Yai but i would not recommend the trip if you’re staying further away.
White sand and clear water, perfect for sunbathing and swimming at the shallow sandy bottom shore.
Price-wise, you’ll see many advertisements for this tour around the island, mostly offering a 4 hour trip for 1500 baht per person. We found a nicer deal in Glow Elixir Beach with the boatmen that stay by a tour sign by the beach. Unlimited time for 2000 baht per boat.
An important reminder is to bring water, they sell it for three times its price on the islands and it will be really needed. It was a hot day when we did our tour and sunblock and hydrating were essential.
If you are vegan, bringing your own meal from Yao Yai will be a must as they sell mostly seafood on the 3 islands and the grilled corn is made side-by-side with the lobster. Still, you can find drinks and some always welcomed fresh coconut water on the stalls.

Here all addresses and extra info from everything you saw on the video:

Loh Jark Beach
South West Of The Island
GPS: 7.933772,98.574445

Our hotel was located at this beach.
It is a quiet and beautiful stretch of sand, only disturbed by a unfortunate pier construction right in the middle of the bay.

 

Glow Elixir Beach
South West Of The Island
GPS: 7.925620,98.577111 (copy and paste in map’s search bar for exact location)
Website: http://elixir.glowhotels.com/

One of the top beaches to visit while on the island.
We chose to depart from this location to our snorkeling trip due finding a better deal with the boatmen from this beach.

With good English and clear understanding of Jie(vegan food), they were able to cook us delicious vegan food even though it was not listed on the menu.
After our meal, our boatman approached the restaurant and we discovered it is owned by his family. Cool coincidence.
