This cruise will not only be comfortable but also swiftly to ensure your maximize your time around Phan Nga and its fascinating land/seascape of Phang Nga Bay. The area's towering limestone cliffs and rock walls that rise dramatically from the sea make it one of the most attractive tour destinations in the Andaman Sea.
During the cruise, majestic rocks rise dramatically out of the sea and are interspersed with mangroves and fascinating hidden caves.

The cruise continues on to Panyi Island to experience the livelihood of a Muslim fishing village built entirely on stilts above the water at the end of the 18th century by nomadic fishermen. Here, you will head ashore and enjoy lunch at a local restaurant. Time to observe how these people live and work is of course included.
