ItineraryThis is a typical itinerary for this productStop At: krabi kingdom Travel & TourMeet 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 Island’s 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.Itinerary:• 08:00 - 09:00: Hotel pickup in Krabi• 09:00 - 09:30: Cruise by longtail boat to Hong Island• 09:30 - 10:10: Stop at Koh Daeng for open water snorkeling• 10:10 - 11:00: Visit Koh Lading or Koh Pakbia• 11:00 - 12:00: Cruise into Hong Lagoon for taking photos & have a swim• 12:00 - 13:00: Enjoy lunch at the beach of Hong Island• 13:00 - 15:00: Free time for relaxing, swimming, sunbathing & kayaking (only if kayak option has been booked)• 15:00 - 15:45: Depart from Hong Island Beach to Nopparat Thara Pier• 15:45 - 16:00: Transfer to hotelDuration: 7 hoursStop At: Nopparat Thara Pier-Duration: 15 minutesStop At: Pak Bia Island, Nong Thale, Krabi Town, Krabi Province-Duration: 1 hourStop At: Koh Lao Ladding-Duration: 1 hourStop At: Hong Islands, Krabi Town, Krabi Province-Duration: 2 hoursPass By: Trip Store Krabi, Krabi Town, Krabi ProvinceThis tour is provided by Trip Store Krabi.
