Phang Nga

Stunning golden beaches, intricate temples and a rich culture.

Thailand

Welcome to the land of smiles!

Visit spectacular Thailand, a country home to a wide range of fauna and flora, of which some species are unfortunately endangered. Thailand’s tourism industry is thriving, but it only benefits certain areas of the country, meaning that some extremely poor communities live without basic necessities.

Phang Nga, one of Thailand’s southern provinces, is located on the stunning shore of the Andaman sea. Phang Nga has an abundance of attractions; from the James Bond Island to the Phu Khao Chang mountains, the Ao Phang Nga National Park to fishing villages built on stilts. This area also has a wealth of cultural activities, including a Watermelon Festival, Free The Turtles Fair, and a Vegetarian Festival. Traditional dishes include barbecued chicken, sweet chili pork, a variety of seafood, and for your sweet tooth there are countless tasty Thai desserts – these are typically super sweet and commonly come wrapped in banana leaves. Tropical fresh fruit like pineapple and mango is also a favorite.

Dive into Thailand’s unique cultural offerings while you support the community of Phang Nga in order to improve their overall living conditions and their futures.
