Situated just to the northwest of Koh Samui sits the idyllic archipelago of Ang Thong National Marine Park. Comprised of approximately 42 islands, the island group is a wonderful way for visitors to Thailand to gain access to beautiful views, see the local wildlife, and explore the area both above and below the waves.
To access the park, inquire in Samui about boat and kayak rentals. There are also ferries that take small groups to and fro, as well as organized tours. In any case, a view of the islands from the water is worth the trip in itself
