Phang Nga Bay is located in the Strait of Malacca between the island of Phuket and the mainland of the Malay peninsula of southern Thailand.

It is known for its beautiful landscape, starting with its dramatic limestone karst hills that plunge directly into the sea. The interior of the many islands in the area include waterfalls, caves, mountains, and hiking opportunities. There are also extensive diving and snorkeling options.

Culturally, Phang Nga is a melting pot of Buddhists, Thai-Chinese, and Muslims. There are also families of sea gypsies.

Overall Atmosphere: Natural
A Natural Atmosphere includes a diverse range of destinations with outdoor-oriented features, including both water-based (beaches, rivers, lakes, etc) and land-based (mountains, forests, deserts, etc). It also includes specific outdoor activities, ranging from water adventuring (eg, kayaking, sailing) to land adventuring (eg, hiking, biking).

Natural Interests tend to be:
(a) outdoors-oriented, and therefore more dependent on weather conditions
(b) less easily accessible and more physically demanding than other destination categories.

In some cases (eg, rafting and climbing), this includes a significantly increased degree of adventure (or danger, depending on one's viewpoint).
Featuring mainly outdoors-oriented natural attractions.
