Hong Island by long tail boat
The main feature of this excursion is the early departure in the morning which allows you to visit the first two destinations in a semi-desert condition. The tour will visit Hong Island, Koh Ladin and the island of Pakbia. Hong Island it is the best known among them and is a perfect escape on holiday. It is a wonderful uninhabited island renowned for its breath-taking beauty, shallow coral reefs and fine, sandy beaches. In the middle of the half-circle shaped island lies the secret lagoon, where you can find yourself at one with nature.
Hong Island by long tail boat highlights
Hong Island Lagoon is absolutely one of the most charming places in the Andaman Sea: a narrow gateway between the high rock’s wall leads into the peaceful and spectacular environment of mangrove swamps decorated with the rounded shape roots of mangroves, emerging from the waters, and crowned with its green leaves. When the tide is lower it’s easy to see the curious, small fauna populating this habitat, such as the mud-skippers, amphibious fishes that can use their pelvic fins to walk on the mud or like the fiddler crab: small crabs with a major claw much larger than the other.
Ladin Island, known also as Paradise Island, is a small island in the Hong Archipelago. Guests will land in a small secluded bay, whose main characteristic are the high located caves where swallows build their nests. The bird’s nests, being an extremely appreciated food by Chinese people, are a particularly thriving market. As evidence of this activity, visitors can see the large bamboo canes used by the collectors to climb and take the so called “White Gold”.
