Hong Islands Sightseeing and Snorkeling Tour Highlights

The following are some highlights of the Hong Islands sightseeing and snorkeling tour.

  • Koh Hong (Hong Island): Hong Island is uninhabited and is the main island of the Hong Islands group. You are sure to see and hear some of the plentiful wildlife that calls this island home — birds, giant monitor lizards, and white-faced gibbons, to name a few. During the first part of the tour, you will enter the Hong Lagoon and return at the last part of the tour for snorkeling, swimming, and a picnic lunch under the shade provided by the magnificent mangrove trees.
  • To reach the Hong Lagoon, you will go through a narrow inlet in between huge limestone mountains. The water in this quiet natural sanctuary is a beautiful turquoise blue where you will likely see groups of starfish.
  • The next stop is Pakbia Island, a small island behind Hong Island. Here you can explore its mazes of caves, carved out of the limestone karsts by sea erosion over the years. At low tide, sandbars appear and one can actually walk to nearby Rai Island. This is definitely a place where you will want your camera to take photographs.
  • Koh Lahding (Paradise Island) is next on the agenda. Surrounded by limestone cliffs this island has a sheltered cove where locals gather bird nests for their bird nest soup.  Here you will be able to relax on its white-sandy, private beaches.
  • The last stop of the tour is a return to Koh Hong. Here you’ll be able to swim and snorkel in its beautiful bay. A delicious picnic lunch will be served on the beach.
