Picnic at a blue lagoon


Cruise across the blue waters of Phulay Bay on a traditional long tail boat — brushed by warm breezes, with the smell of jasmine in the air — to Hong Island. There you can enjoy a signature picnic along a hidden lagoon. In the Thai language, the translation of the island’s name is “the island with the room,” thanks to the stunning natural feature located in its center.
