Park Office, Ko Adang http://www.dnp.go.th/parkreserve/reservation.asp
A handful of inviting cottages and simple tents are available on Ko Adang, courtesy of the national park.
Camping is the cheapest option, with decent two-person tents set up under some trees just back from the beach -- an idyllic setting for getting back to nature. Travellers with their own tents are welcome to set them up for a measly 30 baht. A huge block of newish shared bathrooms has cold showers and Western toilets, though they're a bit of a walk from the tents. One of the solidly built fan bungalows with high arched ceilings, porches and sliding glass doors is a good choice if you prefer an actual roof over your head and a private cold-water bathroom. Set up in a row backed by Chadoe Cliff, they have shiny white tile floors, modern bathrooms with large mirrors, sinks and Western toilets. A couple of family cabins are also available, the larger of which can sleep up to eight people. Mattresses are quite firm and electricity runs only in the evenings. Because there's a limited number of bungalows, it's wise to try your luck with the DNP's clunky website to reserve a bungalow ahead of time during peak season or on Thai holidays.
