Kayaking Koh Samui Ang thong National Park. If you have not been on a big ferry style boat before, it really is a great way to enjoy a day at the islands.
Speed boats are faster but they are also smaller and even though they are comfortable, you do tend to sit shoulder to shoulder with other people on the boat. Initially you will get transferred by Thai style long tail boat from the pier out to the main boat to commence your Kayaking Koh Samui Ang thong National Park tour.
You will enjoy a light breakfast in the morning as you travel to Ang Thong National Marine Park. Once the boats stops you will be taken by Long tail boat or Kayak to Mae Koh Island where you will need a small level of fitness to climb some steps to reveal a great view of the emerald green salt water lake called Talay Nai, a lagoon surrounded by sheer rock faces and cliffs.
At lunch time you will eat a delicious Thai buffet with assorted fresh suits in season and some drinks. After lunch you are back in to the kayaks to Wua Ta Lap Island and if you are feeling up to it, you can climb about 500 meters up to the view point and a lovely panoramic view of the surrounding islands.
Using the same trail following a rope to the Lotus Cave and some amazing formations inside. If you are not feeling like climbing and walking, you can simply stay down on the beach and do some snorkeling (depending on the water visibility of the day) and have a swim and relax. Not everyone is a climber.
If you feel like a combination of islands, kayaking, adventure and relaxation this Kayaking Koh Samui Ang thong National Park tour might be the one for you.
