What to Expect When Visiting Koh Hong Island in Thailand

When embarking on your exciting Hong Island Tour, you might choose our incredibly popular Hong by starlight standard excursion or treat yourself to a more intimate Hong Island private tour charter. Either way, you can expect nothing short of the experience of a lifetime. The views in and around Phang Nga Bay have to be seen to be believed and are genuinely breathtaking and incredibly photogenic. 

Add to this the excitement of exploring myriad sea caves and hidden bays on a Hong Island canoeing adventure in your very own John Gray Sea Canoe, and you will start to understand why so many people recommend us and come back to visit the Hong Lagoon area and others with us time and again. 

Koh Hong Island: Paradise in Thailand’s Krabi Province

Koh Hong Island is an incredible sanctuary away from the chaos, where the rock formations grow in fascinating, precarious crags and caves of all kinds. In fact, Koh Hong means ‘island room’ in Thai, a reference to the compartmented nature of this curious, secretive spot, parts of which were discovered by John Gray himself. Located within Thanbok Khoranee National Park, Koh Hong, Thailand, it is widely regarded as one of the shining jewels of the Krabi region. Hong Island is an unmissable destination for any tourist visiting this beautiful country, and is famous for:

  • Crystal clear waters 
  • Breathtaking scenery
  • Tranquil, pristine beaches
  • Secluded coves and enticing hidden bays
  • A fascinating, stunning underwater world teeming with life

Activities and adventures in Koh Hong Krabi

For those who tire of lazing on white-sand beaches and sipping delicious fruit cocktails, there are a huge number of exciting activities to engage in to suit all tastes, including walking, hiking, swimming, and snorkelling. 

Taking a self-guided Hong Island kayak trip is high on many people’s lists of the most incredible, wonderfully free experiences. With very little negative impact on such a treasured area, skimming along the calm waters, Hong Island canoeing is a great way to immerse yourself in the area. Explore at your own pace, investigating anywhere and everywhere at your leisure, interacting without disturbing the local flora and fauna. Speaking of which, among a plethora of wildlife, you might expect to see:

  • A wide range of birds
  • Monitor lizards
  • White-faced gibbons
  • Whale sharks and sea turtles
  • Dugongs, dolphins and finless porpoises

Other iconic locations

If you have a little extra spare time, why not take one of our trips to the instantly recognisable James Bond Island?
