Hong Islands Tour in southwest Thailand

Enjoy cliffs, lagoons and beaches on the Hong Islands Tour in southwest Thailand

The Hong Islands Tour, offered by Krabi Riviera Co., Ltd. in Krabi, Thailand, a luxury villa rental company, is a delightful excursion where visitors can enjoy beautiful beaches and limestone cliffs in southwest Thailand. Vacationers will be able to sightsee, explore, relax, snorkel, and sunbathe during this full-day tour.

Twelve small islands off the coast of Krabi comprise the Hong Islands. The islands are composed of a continuous circle of limestone cliffs, with many different formations, caves, and inlets. At its center is a fresh water lagoon, completely surrounded by karsts that are covered top to bottom in rainforest. The cliffs are well known and in 2013, the world cliff diving finals were held here.

In addition to the cliffs, the beaches of the Hong Islands will delight sunbathers and swimmers with its pristine white sand. The crystal-clear waters are perfect for snorkeling where the shallows are full of colorful marine life.

Hong Islands Tour Highlights

Koh Hong (Hong Island) is the main island and, although uninhabited by humans, there is plenty of wildlife. Visitors may spot gibbons, giant monitor lizards and many species of birds while they explore the beach. Swimming and snorkeling are favorite activities here.

The speedboat takes travelers through a nearby narrow inlet that opens into a turquoise-water lagoon, surrounded by karsts and jungle forest. It is an astoundingly beautiful natural marvel.

Koh Daeng is an excellent location for snorkelers of all levels. Famous for its coral reefs, the water is very shallow and filled with colorful fish. At low tide, the coral reef is visible from the surface.

Koh Lahding (Paradise Island) has a sheltered cove where locals gather bird nests for their bird nest soup.

Pakbia Island is a great place for exploration with its mazes of caves.  Rai Island, at low tide, has truly impressive sandbars where vacationers can see what lives under the sea.
