Phang-Nga Bay belong to the Andaman Sea who in turn belongs to the mightily Indian Ocean. Ao Phang-Nga( Ao=Thai language for Bay) has a surface of about 400 km2 and is,
thanks to the heaven , since already 16 years a Thai National Marine Park. So by this no hotels, no resorts, no bars and no boutiques, no mass tourism. Only pure nature at its best!
In the bay one will find 42 island and islets. To visit them all has no sense; all are beautiful but only are few and real spectacular because of their shape,
the outside stalactites their fantastic caves and lagoons with mangrove inside.
The islands in this amazing bay, which you always see by flying in or by take off from the International Airport of Phuket, are a real non-classified world-wonder.
Such a landscape you only can admire at Phang-Nga Bay (the most beautiful), Krabi and Surat Thani provinces in Thailand, Guilin in Southern China, Halong Bay (near Da Nang) in Vietnam,
Vieng Vang in Laos and Sarawak on the island of Borneo.
All these are the remnants of an ancient coral reef system that once stretched out across the shallow seas of south East Asia during the Permian Period (appr. 250 million years ago).
These remnants, the islands, that you have seen today are called “karsts”. Vegetation on this marvelous limestone karsts must be able to withstand desiccation during dry season,
almost a complete lack of soil and severe exposure to the elements. Animals too, need special adaptation to live in such a hostile environment.
Rainforests over here, as well as the unique limestone formations we are talking about, are technically “”tropical evergreen forests”,
a remnant of a 160 million years old forest Eco-system that is much older than the Amazon in Southern America or the rainforests of Central Africa.
