Welcome to Phang Nga
'Sawadee' is Thai for hello or welcome; so sawadee and welcome to ‘Know Phang Nga’.
Phang Nga is a province on the south west coast of Thailand. It offers visitors a wonderful varied experience of much that is best about Thailand. There are long stretches of glorious beaches along the shores of the Andaman Sea. At the south-east of the province is Phang Nga Bay with its breathtaking scenery of great limestone karsts rising spectacularly into the sky. Then inland Phang Nga has vast areas of unspoiled natural wilderness. There are national parks, waterfalls, jungle and mountains.
It has become a popular tourist destination but still retains its natural and unspoilt appeal. Whilst Phuket province to the south has become one of the top beach destinations in the world and attracts millions of visitors every year, Phang Nga has maintained a more tranquil feel. Phuket has lots of development, facilities and tourist attractions but also has crowds, traffic and hassle. Phang Nga has few man made holiday attractions but maintains a relaxed natural charm.
Phang Nga is a wonderful location for a true get-away-from-it-all holiday. You can relax on the beach and take day trips to the national parks and waterfalls. Relax in the evenings at the beach side restaurants or the selection of bars and restaurants in the few tourist resort towns. Khao Lak is the perfect base for scuba divers to take liveaboard trips to the stunning dive sites at the Similan Islands and Surin Islands.
Phang Nga is not the place for those looking for nightlife, action and partying. It is not the place for people who want facilities, shopping and theme parks. It is the place if you want to relax on lovely beaches and enjoy natural attractions. It is the place if you want to eat great Thai food in beautiful locations. It is the place if you want to meet friendly Thai people who still like to welcome visitors with that famous Thai hospitality.
