A Guide to ThailandGuidebook to Thailand
The city of Phoket and the nearby Phi Phi Phi are the most valuable places in the area. To start you should stay in Krabi instead of Phoke. It' a less costly place and the scenery around it is more beautiful, so it's a win-win situation for both sides. It is also simple to come to the city of Puket if you want to see both places.
You have several possibilities to explore the western coastal isles. Or you can just spend the night and then go to the next isle if you want. The majority of the smaller isles do not provide shelter, but the bigger ones. On the other hand, a full excursion to one of several isles is a good way to do both.
Last in Aonang, Krabi, when I was visiting the western coastline, we did a four island cruise for 400 Baht. Journey includes luncheon (Thai curried cheese, which was very tasty) and transport with a long tail boot and a guide. And I was very pleased with this ride.

The most travellers use the city as a basis for hopping on the isle. The city of Phoket is 40 km away and most travellers live on one of the major beaches: Do you want more reviews from Thailand? The Poda is only a few kilometers away from Krabi and is part of a Nationalpark. There is not much to do on the isle except sunbathing and bathing.
Wherever you can spend the night: Chicken Iceland is another big Iceland that looks more like a Turkeys to me..... or maybe a shells? However, this place has a beautiful snorkelling spot and is part of the above itinerary. Wherever you can spend the night: It is a tourist resort in itself and many visitors come to the islands every year, especially Scandinavians.
Wherever you can stay: Just a brief cruise away, you'll find tub Iceland. It is much smaller than the other islets in the group. For me it was a better place because it is more secluded and you can (almost) have the sandy beaches to yourself. Wherever you can spend the night: James Bond Iceland, also known as Khao Phing Kan, lies just off Phuket.
It' renowned for its role in the 1974 James Bond film The Man with the Golden Gun and for the 20-metre-high Koh Tapu that you can see in the image below. The James Bond Isle is part of Phang Nga Bay, which stretches over an area of 400 km and is home to around 100 islets.
From Phuket you will probably have a meal in a Moslem fishermen' s hamlet, where the buildings are erected on stilt around a high rocky isle. Be careful of your possessions during your time there and never let them out of your eyes! During our trip a Swede's videocamera was taken and our suspect guide seemed to be there.
The nearest town is Phuket: It is probably the most famous of all the western coastlines. This archipelago has some nice coral and sandy shores, but much of it has disappeared today because many vessels go there every daily. Wherever you can stay:
Here is the rate of: Philuket (speedboat): 3.100 Baht. Alternatively, if you would rather spend more time on the isle, choose the least expensive way to get from a to b.
While you can opt to be on a backpacker packed shore and find a great night out with ease, if you're more interested in your own shore, you should be able to find it. Water around the islands is beautiful and it is a great place to go swimming. Koh Lanta can be reached from Krabi, Phi Phi Phi or Phuket, but this is the best place for longer sojourns.
Wherever you can stay: Well, adventurer, did you do isolated jumping in Thailand?
