Ang Thong Islands are a very beautiful national park. But if the park is set Limiting the visits and tourism of tourists to be less than this would be good. The viewpoint of Wua Ta Lap is very beautiful. can see everywhere Islands in the park, Bua Bok Cave, stalactites, very attractive to visit and many other spots such as the sea in emerald green water

This Park Must Be On Everyone's Itinerary If Visiting Samui!
Dec 2020
THIS was the place that anyone and everyone MUST do if visited Samui!

Hands down, one the best island trips I’ve done in Thailand in a long time (and there’s a lot to be said about that since I generally don’t do domestic trips, but due to the worldwide viral outbreak, I had to keep things ‘at home’ this year).

Anyways, pickup time from my hotel was (about 8:30?) and departure on the boat started at about 9:30, and it’s basically an all-day trip, returning to Samui in the afternoon around 5pm.

For the tour I was on, (but can’t remember the name now), they first go to a little cove where you can snorkel for a bit. I opted not to do this as I had done a snorkeling trip just days before at another location and it is optional for all guests to go into the water.
______
Then they move onto what is the first island called ‘Mae Ko’, and is one of the main feature islands as it has the beautiful, ‘Emerald Lake’, and is a 100% enclosed saltwater lake! It was super cool, and I don’t think I’ve seen a body of water like this ever before.

You’ll climb up and down very steep stairs to get to the lookout, and then to actually go down to the water level to get different views. Swimming is not allowed at this lake.

You’ll spend a bit of time there, and will then get aboard the boat for the next stop which is only about a 3 minute ride across to another island
_____
At this island, you can go kayaking, swim, or even hike to the top of the hill where you can get really nice shots of the surrounding islands and beach below you. The tour company also offered a lunch, but I opted not to do it as I knew I had limited time, and wanted to hike instead.
_____
Lastly, and for the true grand finale, you go to the official, Ang Thong National Park, and where you’ll be “privileged” to climb many many steps, in order to reach the top of this mountain.

However, upon lots of sweat and I’m sure heavy breathing (haha), you’ll be VERY happy you climbed all that way. What beholds your gaze, is just breathtaking – a striking panoramic view of lots of little islands and the blue turquoise sea!

After the big hike up and after going back down after enjoying the view from atop, we had the option to swim for about 45 minutes or guests can grab a cool drink from a shop located on the island.

After that time span, we boarded the boat to return to Samui and that was the end of the trip. The company also shuttled us back to our hotels from the pier where the boat was.

In conclusion and for all who wish to travel to Samui, for domestic travelers (and international once the borders open up someday), this is a MUST DO day trip!

You won’t be disappointed fellow travelers!

Fantastic day trip from Koh Samui. Beautiful!!
Jul 2020 • Friends
Took a day trip with some friends to this national park during covid. We spent the entire day swimming, cruising around the fabulous islands, snorkeling, drinking beer and enjoying the completely desolate golden beaches.

We did not see a single other visitor the entire day which really added to the beauty of this spot. Such a great day and can be pretty cheap too!

A must do experience
Mar 2020
Not sure which company we used, but it started with collection at hotel, speedboat to first island where we snorkelled for around 30 minutes, back in boat to a different area and a further 20 minutes snorkelling in a cave, then too an island where we kayaked, before walking up a very dangerous trail, for a view point which was worth a decent photo or two; don't try climbing with flip flops on. We then back in boat to a different island for lunch which was good. Not sure when, we also was taken to a lagoon which required a steep stair walk to access. Finally, to the last island for an hour relaxing on the beach (a few monkeys were walking around here). Then back to Samui. A packed day made good by the guides and decent paced speed boat.

As for the national park, so much to see and the guides point out many interesting aspects along the way.

A great day-trip

Enjoyed the well organized day trip! The boatride is a bit ruff, but it makes sence to go by speedboat in order to get more time at the destination.

Amazing place
Feb 2020 • Solo
Really worth visiting. Beautiful places and amazing views. But couple of things to make the trip best possible: 1. weather, if waves are too big it's not possible to visit all places and boat trip can be difficult, 2. good shoes, viewpoints are nice, but the way up might be hard, especially if wearing only flipflops, 3. Operating company, routes, included activities and services vary between companies.

The best part was kayaking through the different beaches until we got to our destiny
Dec 2019
I travel in December, which is a rainy season and the beach in our hotel in Koh Samui was full of algae. This trip to Mu Ko Ang Thong National Park was the best part of my trip. The beach was clean and not too crowded. Kayaking was my favorite thing to do!
