Phang-nga is a rural province of southern Thailand, bits of which are immensely popular for their stunning natural beauty. The Surin and Similan Islands and Phang Nga Bay are frequent stops for those visiting Phuket, which is just to the south. Much of the rest of the province is virgin jungle with striking limestone karsts punctuating the landscape.

    Some parts of Phang-nga Province are becoming increasingly popular as destinations in their own right. The Khaolak area and its beautiful beaches have the peaceful charm that Phuket originally became famous for, as do the Koh Yao islands. Further inland, the rivers, waterfalls, and trekking routes are a playground for those who like some more activity on their vacation.
