The perfect opportunity to canoe in Phang Nga and get the best of both worlds - by day and night. Starting after lunch, explore the bay's limestone caves ('hongs'in Thai), which can only be entered by canoe when the tide is just right. Then at sunset enjoy the view, accompanied by a Thai-style seafood dinner.
Once darkness falls, the very special award-winning Hong by Starlight tour begins. No torches please - three natural light sources and one special feeling create a lifetime memorable moment. Expect to return late - everybody always wants to do another 'Hong'. This special tour has been created by one of the pioneers of cave exploration in this part of the world and is a memorable and educational experience.
