Koh Klang a small charming fishing island, located in the province of Krabi, the community is welcoming tourists to get a glimpse of their local lives. The friendly community maintains a simple and modest life, which they are proud to share with visitors searching for an insight into authentic southern Thai culture. With a traditional Andaman long-tail boat you will cross the sea to the small island where a local sidecar driver takes you to the village.  The island, called Koh Klang, is surrounded by rich natural mangrove forest with many different fish species.  The communities mostly work in coastal fisheries, have fish farms, and grow rice for household consumption and sales to neighbours.

Koh Klang is a quiet place with very few tourists. Locals are interested in developing eco-tourism on the island with the help of the local government. They provide local activities such as batik, making tie dye with the natural dye from the mangrove bark, visiting fish farms, taking a trip in the mangroves with a long tail boat, and exploring caves.
