Koh Phayam (Ranong)

One of the largest islands on the Andaman Sea, Koh Phayam is located in the province of Ranong and is a good alternative to the more popular and much bigger Ko Chang, which is actually just a few kilometers from Phayam.

Most visitors to Koh Phayam arrive by boat from Ranong, travel time depending on whether one chooses a slow boat for a more relaxed and leisurely cruise or a speedboat to get to the island hotel as quickly as possible. Whatever the case, once arriving in Koh Phayam travelers will find that there are many different choices for hotels and accommodations, ranging from simple home-style rooms to lavish beachfront resorts.

Ao Kha Kwai, more commonly known as Buffalo Bay, is one of the quieter beaches on the island and the perfect alternative to the much busier beaches of the Big Bay. At Phayam Harbor, take some time to explore the wildlife sanctuary which is home to many different species of birds as well as plants. This is a great destination that combines a little bit of eco-tourism along with the typical beach vacation.
