Explore the best of Thailand on the full day Mingalaba road trip taking you to some of the most beautiful places in Koh Pha Ngan. Start with a morning hotel pick up and ehad to your first stop — the Thong Nai Pan Beach, a stunning beach known for its white sand end clear water. Your next stop on the trip is Than Sadet Waterfall, a famous sightseeing spot in Thailand once visited by King Rama V who left and inscription on the rock in the waterfall that is still there today. Continue to Yao Beach and Rin Beach where you will relax over a delicious local lunch featuring the best of Thai specialties. Finally, go in for some snorkeling at the legendary Mae Haad Beach.
Thailand is a nation filled with natural wonders. Among them is the scattered, sawtoothed 42-island archipelago of Ang Thong National Park. On this cruise, you'll get to witness some of the world's most beautiful coral gardens and wealthy marine life hidden beneath crystal clear waters. Along the journey too, you'll see secret lagoons, limestone cliffs, and bright colored sands of peach and white – all rising from the waves in dramatic fashion. On the day of the tour, it's best to prepare early as you will be picked up from your hotel in Phangan at around 8:00am to 8:45am. Your transfer service will leave the Ban Tai area at 9:00am. On board you will find snacks, fruits, tea and coffee, and soft drinks as a welcoming service for the guests. The first stop is at Koh Wao or Koh Tay Plow at 10:20am for fun activities such as swimming or snorkeling. By noon, recharge and enjoy a lunch buffet of traditional Thai food and seasonal fruits prepared by the operator. Moving on from the coral gardens is 15 minute cruise to Ao Ka Beach and Talay Nai Lagoon. At 12:30pm, either stay on the cruise or go an exciting kayak activity around the gorgeous waters towards Koh Mae Koh and finally stop at Talay Nai. The latter is known for its stunning emerald-colored waters that inspired Alex Garland's cult-classic novel "The Beach." You'll arrive here at around 1:30pm to climb to the viewing platform, which offers a stunning panorama of the islands from this side of the marine park. This will take up approximately two hours of the day tour before proceeding to the 50 minute trekking activity at Koh Wua Talap Island at 3:30pm. You can also relax and enjoy the afternoon at the beach with the monkeys living in the island. The tour ends at 4:45pm and you will leave the park back to your hotel.

What people are saying about Snorkeling in Koh Pha Ngan & Surat Thani
Very exciting road adventure, met new friends from Germany, Denmark, Switzerland and Russia, all are friendly. The road trip was very interesting and fun, and the beaches visited was very beautiful. The tour guide Mon was exceptionally helpful,especially when his hands were covered with unique accessories. Snorkeling was fun and the view was excellent at Three Sixty Bar. The Than Sadet waterfall was quite a letdown, not a quite we expected. Overall, we would recommend visitors to take this package.
Great tour with Diamond tour, including a pickup service. 5 snorkling spots around the island. Unfortunately we had bad weather so they had to change some spots and the visibility wasn't the best, but it was still fun and we saw a gigantic turtle. Please be aware you can get motion sickness if there are big waves. I didnt feel good for about an hour andI wasnt the only one. But i would still book this tour again.
I think this is the best provider for a trip to Angthong from Koh Phangan. The boat is large enough to provide enough space to move around, have a meal and even use a restroom (there were 2 nicely clean ones on our boat!). The staff was fun and friendly, kept giving us fruity snacks, made sure everyone was fine and went definitely the extra mile even during the hiking part, which my parents had to do super slowly. We didn't expect such a high level of service and were thus positively surprised. We even got towels! Overall, we were very happy with the experience and would recommend it to anyone.
Amazing tour with super friendly staffs, well organised programs and nice food. Applause to professional staffs who always greet us with smile once we got back to boat from sea. The snorkeling is fun too, we saw millions of fishes, living corals, turtles and shark. Overall we had an enjoyable trip and gained alot of fun. Highly recommended on this Diamond Tour!
the tour is very organized and as described. the cabin crew were very attentive and caring towards everyone on board. the guide was fun and explained everything before every stop. breakfast on the office was good as well as lunch. we loved kayaking and visiting another island where we got to see pigs, though it might be challenging if the weather conditions aren't the best . overall we highly recommend this tour as they put safety of the passengers above all and go extra miles to make you feel comfortable
The national park was amazing. We paid 300bht for the entry. You have to walk all the way up and down to see how does it look like. The stairs are very steep. Also there is a small shop of snacks and beverages.
We had lunch included. The foods was great!
Guides of the boat were young but passionate of what their doing. Thank guys and see you soon!
