Phang Nga is a provincial capital on the Northern Andaman Coast of Thailand. The natural beauty of the land here can be found both onshore and underwater. There are also some unique cultural opportunities that can be taken advantage of while visiting. Phuket and Krabi each have an airport of their own that makes reaching Phang Nga convenient.
Phang Nga’s natural landscape hosts the city’s greatest attractions in the form of rivers, lakes, mountains, and more. Heaven and Hell Cave at Wat Tham Ta Pan
is one of the most popular sites and features statues of various gods as well as virtues like the Three Wise Monkeys. Sanong Manora and the 5-tiered Lamru are both waterfalls that are well worth a visit. The beach of Khao Lak offers the leisure of sea and sand, while Koh Similan National Park and Koh Surin National Park provide diving and snorkeling. The community-based tourism offered in the area is also a unique experience to have. Locals open up their village for day tours or an overnight homestay and can include such activities as batik painting and tin mining.
