Roaming Thailand – Koh Nangyuan – one of the world’s most beautiful islands

Welcome to paradise

Welcome to paradise

Koh Nangyuan is a jewel of an island that is between 1-2 hours from Koh Samui depending on the type of boat you use to travel there.  There is some development in the form of a very small number of  bungalows and a restaurant.  It is also a base for some scuba schools.  The water  is as clear as it gets and is home to many species of fish.  Although you mostly see small black and yellow striped fish in the shallow waters, many other fish are visible in the deeper water.  In addition to staying at Nangyuan, you can also make it a day trip from Koh Samui, or stay at nearby Koh Tao or Koh Phangan.

I would recommend Koh Tao as it is very close to Nangyuan and all services are available there.   There are many resorts on Koh Tao.  Charm Churree Villa is my recommendation as a place to stay.

If you do want to get away from it all.  You can stay at Nangyuan.  But it is very quiet when all the day visitors have gone.  If seclusion is your cup of tea, have at it.  The other option is a day trip from Samui but this can be a rushed trip with little time to really spend at Nangyuan.

  2. Nangyuan is several hundred meters from Koh Tao which has some of the best diving in Thailand. Nangyuan has three dive sites around it which are well-known. Not sure what this “pingback” is talking about.

  3. Thailand, is one of the best places to spend holidays. The place has many condominiums and independent villas available on rent. On my last vacation in Thailand, I stayed at the luxury villa of Eden rock(http://www.edenrok.com/). The villa boasts of tropical garden with waterfall, natural rock swimming pool, spa and many other exclusive things that will make the whole holiday experience more relaxing.
