Where is Ko Phra Thong Located?
Ko Phra Thong is a island in Thailand. Ko Phra Thong is located a good distance north of Khao Lak in the Andaman Sea – until recently I had never heard of this place. I really wanted to explore the not so small island. The journey takes place by boat, which can be chartered through a travel agency, directly at the Pier or through the Resort where you want to stay on the island.
What Country is Ko Phra Thong in?
The handful of Resorts to collect a cosy Bay, and the beach goes on both sides for miles, he is still completely empty, only covered with the pine-like Casuarina, the advance since the Tsunami further into the island’s interior, dense undergrowth and scattered trees.
A narrow, paved road connects two of the three fishing settlements, both have a small Pier, but no shopping facilities. All other places are connected by sand slopes, which are rather difficult to ride on a scooter. Nevertheless, it is worth exploring the island a bit: after a Resort employee let me borrow a scooter, I drive through African-looking savannah plains and enchanted mangrove swamps – an exciting, contrasting landscape far away from the usual Island Vegetation.
