Stop At: Krabi kingdom Travel & Tour

Meet Mr. Baw, a hell of a guide, on our Hong island Tour by traditional longtail boat. This trip is an authentic sea adventure on a modified wooden boat with a propeller attached to the end of a long pole powered by an enormous engine (typically one that has been removed from a truck) - somewhat grandiosely known as 'the gondolas of the south'.

Mr. Baw will be the jack of all trades: He will pick you up from the hotel lobby, give you safety instructions and information about the tour at Nopparat Thara Pier, act as your guide, locate the best snorkel spots, swim with you, prepare the lunch setting at the beach of Pakbia Island, show you how to paddle a kayak, make nice photos from you, and just be around if you need any help.

Koh Hong will enchant you right when you step on the island. Part of Than Bok Khorani National Park, Koh Hong features a beautiful sheltered cove with perfect sand beach and many palm trees providing plenty of shady spots to sit back and marvel at the view. Discover every cranny and nook of Hong Islands stunning bays, or bask on the shores and watch for Monitor Lizards, White-Faced Gibbons and brilliant tropical birds.

Hong in Thai means room, and the literal translation of the islands Thai name is the island with the room due to the gorgeous lagoon located in the centre surrounded by mangroves with their incredible root systems. Slide between towering limestone walls that shelter Hong Lagoon and slip into the water to snorkel over brilliant fish and shallow reefs.

If you have booked the kayak option, paddle along the sinuous coastline where lush vegetation and soaring cliffs join the Andaman Sea. You will also get to visit Koh Daeng (Red Island), Koh Lading (Paradise Island) and Koh Pakbia. Enjoy a delicious lunch on a tropical beach giving you plenty of time to take in the beauty of the islands.

    The snorkeling was amazing and my boys and I kayaked into the lagoon when the water was knee deep. I walked around barefoot in the lagoon while the boys paddled around and I took many photos. While kayaking back, we came a across a giant monitor about a meter long.

    I forgot the tour guide name, but he is a nice tour guide. He is very take care of us and always have a smile on his face. The food which is including in the tour package was nice too,maybe we have no high requirements for the food but still enjoy!
    We are the first time to kayaking,very nice! Guys you should try!

  • 23-Apr-2018

    The tour was well organized and pleasant. We opted out of the kayaking and it turned out to be a very good choice, because otherwise we wouldn't have had any time to enjoy the Hong Island. Lunch was ok - after reading the comments about people being pleasantly surprised, I expected more, but was good enough.

    The main con of this tour is that we didn't have enough time on Hong Island - just 1 hour for snorkeling before lunch and 30 minutes after lunch - we walked the trail.

    If you would like to spend more time on Hong Island, I suggest you take a boat directly to the island and stay there for the entire day.

    Amazing experience

  • 22-Mar-2018

    The islands are pretty,the lunch is good - the “snorkeling” is NOT a highlight.Extremely rude guide,who actually yelled at fellow tourists on numerous occasions.We’ve been travelling for a while are are pretty laid back-but this exeprience left us wanting to jump overboard and swim back to dry land!

    Driver arrived on time at hotel but the transport is overloaded with passengers. Then, the longtail boat broke down in the middle of the ocean and we had to wait for 40 mins instead of the 20 mins told by the tour guide. Lunch was below average for Thai food. The guide just sent us out to kayak with no supervision in the rough sea. It wasn't fun at all.

  • 14-Mar-2018

    This was a good tour and Hong island is very beautiful and worth seeing. I have had better and friendlier tour guide, but he did his job.

    The pick up was about 20mins late, apparently due to many people going on tours. First of all we were taken to a meeting point at Nopparat Thara Pier where about 100-150 people were waiting to get on boats for various tours.

    My group had about 25 people, so the Longtail boat was full. It took about 45mins to reach Paradise Island and we stayed there for about 35mins. Then we went to a lagoon 25 mins were everyone could swim if they felt like it and take photos. After this stop we went to Hong Island for about 2hrs where we had Thai food for lunch, and then we went kayaking around part of Hong Island 2 people per kayak and visited some isolated caves. The guide was great and took photos of everyone in their kayaks. We were scheduled to visit Red Island after this stop, but we were told that the water was too choppy and unsafe, so instead we had extra 20 mins on Hong Island for swimming. The flexible floating pier was a challenge to walk across at Hong Island, it felt like we were on a roller coaster and was hard to keep our balance as the waves moved the pier up and down. We then returned to Nopparat Thara Pier 45mins later and then transported by Tuk Tuk to our hotels.

    Overall the tour was ok, but the Islands were very crowded as I expected, but at least we got away from people when we went kayaking and Hong Island was also nice place for swimming. The guide was very hard working to make sure everyone was happy!

    We were staying in Railay Beach and we had to book a longtail boat to go back to Krabi to join this tour. It is an extra logistic and cost but we really enjoyed the whole trip. Everything was very well organized and even the lunch was quite good. We chose the option with kayak and I strongly recommend it! We could see Hong Island from the outside and explore better the lagoon. In this tour we had also the opportunity to see very colorful fishes around the Red Island for the fans of snorkeling. A fantastic way to know a little more of Thailand.

    this was a really good tour, especially the nature walk on Kong Island. Joon, the guide was very informative and helpful
