ko Hong (Ko Laopilae) and Ko Hong Lagoon (Thale Nai) are a part of Muko Hong, Than Bok Khorani National Park. The island’s feature is a limestone mountain. In front of the island is a curved sandy beach that looks like a flying bird with fine white sand and emerald green water, which is very beautiful and clear. At one end of the beach, there is a walkway with 419 iron stairs and from the top of the mountain, there is a 360-degree panorama. The beach of Ko Hong can be seen below, including various islands in the waters of Krabi and Phang-nga provinces. The other side of Ko Hong has some interesting sites, e.g., Ko Hong Lagoon (Thale Nai), which looks like a wide hall in the middle of the sea surrounded by high cliffs like a volcanic crater. Inside the lagoon, there is emerald green water. It is possible to moor boats and go swimming, Boats can enter and exit only one channel when the sea level rises. Getting there: A one-day tour package can be purchased from Krabi town, Ao Nang, or from Phang-nga (because the maritime territories are connected), or hire a Hua Tong boat from Ao Nang or Noppharat Thara Beach that takes about 45 minutes-1 hour.
