Mu Koh Ang Thong

Mu Koh Ang Thong is a national park located about an hour and a half by boat west of Koh Samui. After a harrowing motorboat ride through the choppy water of the bay, we arrived the day after Christmas ready to snorkel and kayak our way through the archipelago. Unfortunately the weather didn’t cooperate and we were stuck for three days on the same island, yet it still ended up being a very relaxing vacation. We swam in the ocean and made sand castles, we hiked and explored the islands caves, we ate lots of tempura at the island restaurant, we took pictures, and we stared at the monkeys in the trees above our tent. I read crime thrillers while Todd played with his new Christmas watercolors. It turned out to be a great New Years.

When the hike starts out with an emergency number you know things will be interesting. And it gets even more interesting when you realize the “trail” is actually a vertical rock slide.

We hiked to a huge cave that opened up into a mini ecosystem in the middle.

Fresh water was delivered to the island via this huge tank floating behind a longtail boat. It took the rest of the morning to get it up the hill.
