ABSORB THE FEELINGS OF LIFE BY THE SEA

Koh Klang On a small charming fishing island, located in the province of Krabi, the community of Klonglu 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 neighbors.

While visiting the island you can experience the local way of life by participating in early morning fishing, model long-tail boat making or batik cloth production and enjoy the beautiful mangrove nature or nearby islands the next day.
