Travel Guide

Phang-Nga in Southern Thailand


Located next to the Andaman Sea, Phang-nga is blessed with astonishing natural beauty and is certainly one of the kingdom's most impressive provinces. Agriculture in the shape of rubber plantations, rice, vegetable and fruit production makes up a key component of the area's economy - not surprisingly, tourism is the other. Phang-nga province offers breathtaking scenery and landscapes featuring mountainous areas alongside deciduous forest and some of the kingdom's nicest islands and beaches (the province's two key National Parks - Surin Islands National Marine Park and Similan Islands National Marine Park - hosting most of these). Phang-nga does though feature a range of smaller, and equally beautiful National Parks and Forest Parks all of great value to Phang-nga's visitors. If you are heading for this area, you have a delight in store!
