Phang Nga Tours
Joining organised tours is one of the best ways for you to get out and see the most spectacular attractions that Phang Nga has to offer. However it is important to know you are booking through a reputable agent and that you will get what you expected. Any agent selling tours in Thailand should have a license from the Tourism Authority of Thailand and should have insurance to cover their customers in case there are any mishaps on their trips. They should, but in fact this is something that not all of the small local agencies provide.
That is why we have teamed up with our good friends and tour partners at Easy Day Thailand to provide you with easy access to the best tours around Phang Nga. Easy Day have western management and a proven record of providing top quality tours. They are fully licensed and insured.
They can book you onto the standard join on tours. However what really makes Easy Day special is they will also give you personalised advice and solutions to exactly meet your needs. What do you want? A private tour with guide? A group tour? How about a private villa, overnight trip or a boat charter? Maybe you want something specific that you think will be difficult to find. Thai cooking lessons? Spa treatment? Easy Day have the contacts and know how to put together a package just for you. Just ask them.
Go to our Easy Day Contact Form and tell them your wishes.
Easy Day also have a range of their own special tours. These are great products around some of the true highlights of Phang Nga and surrounding region. There are many great tours so on this page we have listed just a few of our absolute favourites. We really do recommend you get out and try at least one of these. All these tours include return pick up from your hotel.
Phang Nga Bay and James Bond Island
We love Phang Nga Bay. The scenery is magnificent and it is a must do for all visitors. I remember watching ‘The Man with a Golden Gun’ as a child and gasping at the stunning scenery. I assumed then that I would never see such a glorious place in real life.
Easy Day Thailand offers two tours to Phang Nga Bay. You can take the slower but more charming option of a longtail boat (as long as you don’t mind the noisy engine). If you want something faster and more comfortable but perhaps without the same quaint charm then you can go for the speedboat option. These tours obviously include a visit to the iconic James Bond Island and lunch at the famous Koh Panyee sea gypsy village. Perhaps even more special is the chance to kayak around the wonderful limestone karsts and caves of Phang Nga Bay.
That would be enough for most tours but these tours also include a 15-minute elephant trek, a visit to a rubber plantation, monkeys trained to collect coconuts and a chance to see some Thai rural life at a rice paddy. As if all that wasn’t enough, the faster speedboat tour also has time for a beach stop at lovely Lawa Island.
These tours are fantastic value for money and an experience you will never forget. Check out the full details of the tour and click the 'Book Now' link at the bottom if you would like to book.
Longtail Price: Adult 2,200 baht, Child (4-11 yrs) 1,500 baht
Speedboat Price: Adult 3,200 baht, Child (4-11 yrs) 2,200 baht
Khao Sok Overnight Adventure Tour
Phang Nga is blessed with some glorious beaches and nearby islands. We are also fortunate to have Khao Sok National Park only a short drive away in Surat Thani province. Khao Sok is one of southern Thailand’s finest national parks with rivers, lakes, jungle and a wide range of flora and fauna.
Easy Day Thailand can arrange a day trip but again we do recommend the overnight tour for this location. This gives you time to truly appreciate the natural splendour of the park. This tour includes elephant trekking, canoeing on Sok River, guided trekking, bamboo rafting and sightseeing.
You will stay overnight in comfortable resort bungalows. This is a highly recommended trip. Check out full details of the Khao Sok Jungle Discovery and let Easy Day Thailand do the rest.
Tour price: Adult 7,300 baht / Child 4,600 baht
Snorkel Tours to Similan & Surin Islands (Nov to Apr)
The Similan Islands and the Surin Islands are natural wonders and world famous scuba diving sites. They also have the finest snorkelling in Thailand. The waters are crystal clear and there are pristine shallow reefs close to shore. There are also some picture perfect beaches to relax on between swims.
Easy Day Thailand can arrange day trips to either set of islands.You can choose from a day trip snorkeling tour or an overnight trip staying in Similan Island National Park bungalows.
All tours can be started from Khao Lak or Phuket. They include return hotel transfers, food and soft drinks, snorkeling equipment and national park fees. There are snorkeling guides and all staff are first aid trained. Note the Similan and Surin National parks are open for vistors from November to April only.
These are great trips. Check out full details of the Similan and Surin Snorklling Tours and let Easy Day Thailand know if you would like to book.
Tour price: Adult 3,500 baht / Child 2,100 baht
Charter Your Own Boat
Ok, this really is pushing the boat out but if there is a group of you and you want a truly special experience, why not charter your own boat for a day or more and go absolutely wherever you want. The MV Saimai is a gorgeous boat and a glorious way to explore the many islands in the beautiful local waters of Phang Nga, The Similans or Krabi.
She comes crewed with a Thai captain, engineer and cook. You can charter her for just a day but she has three spacious sleeping cabins so why not save yourselves some hotel costs and book her for a few days of cruising. Just imagine waking up amongst the magnificent limestone karsts of Phang Nga Bay or the great granite boulders of the Similan Islands.
If you like scuba diving then the boat can be provided with diving equipment. Take a look at the full details of the MV Saimai and then if you really want to treat yourself, click the contact link at the bottom of the page and tell Easy Day Thailand your requirements for a dream cruise around the Andaman Sea
Price on request.
The above tours are just some of our favourites but there are plenty of other options that Easy Day Thailand can arrange for you. If you have any special requirements or are not sure what you want then just fill in the contact form and they will contact you to discuss your requirements.
