Koh Samui – Ang Thong National Marine Park – Part I

On our 2nd day, we made a trip to Ang Thong National Marine Park.

Ang Thong National Marine Park consists of 40 over islands featuring lime stone massifs, tropical rain forests and deserted beaches within the vicinity of Koh Samui. To get there, we had to take an hour boat ride from Koh Samui.

Our trip was arranged by a local tour by the name Samui Island Tour. It costs around 1850 Bath (before discount. We got a 20% discount as a friend knows the boss there)

The journey started around 7am when the tour guide picked us up from our hotel. We almost couldn’t wake up for it. Who said holiday is to relax.

After a short ride from our hotel, we were greeted by a red coloured boat.


We sat by the side of the boat.


Most of the passengers are Caucasians.

Breakfast was provided but it was just light food. Shouldn’t eat so much when sitting in a boat as one can get seasick easily.


Eat Bananas guai lous!

Bottom deck – where the toilet is…which is just next to the kitchen..uuuhh..


/(*O*)\ our boatman driving with his feet while reading papers!!

While on the boat, this song suddenly played on my head.

Mindless lyrics but yet entertaining.

An hour later, we stopped beside a cliff of an island and immediately got off our boat via a kayak. Each of us were given a life jacket which stink big time.

However, after getting into the kayak, we were not allowed to kayak on our own but to follow the tour guide.

The tour guide lead us some interesting sights including some nice limestone hills.


I hate this stuff


Our boat ditched us


Nice jugs!! Made me feel like jumping off the kayak to climb them.
