Trip to Hong – Picture Perfect island in Thailand

When in Krabi you can choose from a host of islands to visit. We chose Hong because it is supposedly still unspoiled. This post will be more on the photographs – well they will speak for themselves!

Some of the most popular islands that are visited by tourists are – Koh Phi Phi, where the Hollywood movie ‘The Beach’ was shot and then there is James Bond island that was featured in Bollywood movie ‘Kaho na Pyar hain’.

Speed boats and long tail boats ferry tourists from Ao Nang (this is the main area in Krabi) to these islands. But booking your tickets at least one day in advance is advisable for a guaranteed seat. These boats generally leave in the morning, so that you have the day in hand when you reach these white sand beaches. While some of the islands are uninhabited, some like Koh Phi Phi has many resorts.

We chose a day trip to Hong island – an uninhabited island. We were told other islands have become a tad commercialized due to high inflow of tourists and Hong is still somewhat secluded and unexplored. So we set out on our Hong sojourn in the morning by a long tail boat.

Here is the photo essay!
