Ko Hong is the largest island of Laopilae archipelago that is located in Thanbok Khoranee National Park. The island has been called ‘The Emerald of Krabi’s Sea’ because it has stunning scenery and clear water and is surrounded by coral reefs.
The Islands that make up the Hong Islands are:
Daeng Island – A small red limestone rock island with perfectly clear water and coral reefs. Schools colorful sh can even be seen from the boat.
Hong Island – Set against the spectacular backdrop of Phang Nga Bay, with its countless rocky outcrops, the islands are rightly considered to be among the most beautiful in Krabi province. The main island, Koh Hong is uninhabited, except for the birds, white-faced gibbons and giant monitor lizards that can be often spotted on the main white sand beach.
Hong Island Lagoon – Hong Island interior is home to a large lagoon (the “chamber” to which its Thai name “Hong” refers). Here you will change from the boat to the kayak as the diminishing water level makes its color change drastically from deep emerald green to a clear turquoise. The entrance to the lagoon is through a dramatic clip passage that should be photographed on your way out.
Lading Island or Paradise Island – A small and secluded island located between Pak Bia island and Hong island. Beautiful scenery with a small bay surrounds by intricate limestone, soft white sand beach, and emerald color sea. Because of this reason Lading island is also known as “Paradise Island”.
Pak Bai Island – Considered the best place for snorkeling and is famous for its spectacular views of the neighboring islands. You will have time to swim, snorkel or take photos or the beautiful views of the nearby islands.
