Discover the hidden “hong” lagoons and sea caves of Phang Nga Bay on an adventure that’s timed to beat the worst of the crowds. After lunch on the boat, your guide paddles you through Koh Panak Cave and the caves and lagoons around Hong Island. Eat dinner, then make your own “Krathong” offering and float it in Koh Panak Cave. Fireflies and luminescent plankton provide a natural light show.

Had been told by word of mouth to go do this. Glad we did. Friendly staff. Even met John Gray. I took a hat but didn't really need one. Boat is under cover and plenty of shade around the caves.
