When my wife and I are planning to visit the Angthong National Park, choosing which tour to go with was a nightmare!!! I read a 1000 reviews atleast and still had no idea which one to choose...some people said to go with one company while others had a lot of bad things to say about the same company!! some travelers reviewed to go by speed boat while others said they went by speed boat and there were too many people!! Well hopefully my review will help a lot of travelers planning to visit this National Park. I am going to be as objective as I can as I believe that every traveler is unique and has his or her unique requirement i.e. I might like one thing and that thing might be a deterrent for another respective traveler.
First - No need to pay double the price to go with ANY other company. THEY ALL GO TO THE SAME PLACE!
We were taken on a speed boat with approximately 25 people. There was ample space in the boat and we did not feel crowded at all. The tour guide (I forget the name) was very friendly and also took pictures for us. He was making jokes; however, was not too intrusive. This is what I meant when I said that some people might find his jokes annoying and give a bad rating to the tour. However, believe me, he was not and was just the perfect balance of guiding you and giving you ample time to yourself.
Snorkeling area was ok...nothing great but then that has nothing to do with the Company as all the boats go to the same place.
We were taken to a village for lunch which was also good. After that we went kayaking (do choose this option; however, please note that it gets tiring. But the beach and the water from where you kayak to makes it worth it.
The Emerald Lake was really good but the steps were really steep. We wore slippers which was fine however, I do believe people who are not too fit should take appropriate shoes. Some people might think that the view is not worth it as it does get you really out of breath.
All in all a great tour and you should book it with your eyes closed!
