More on Ko Adang

A handful of simple yet inviting cottages and tents are available at Laem Son on Ko Adang, courtesy of the national park.

Travelfish says:


Campers can pitch their own tent or a park-issued tent with sleeping mats and pillows anywhere along a lovely stretch of beachfront, or a bit further back beneath the graceful trees. Set around 100 metres back from the beach, the shared cold-water bathrooms come with plentiful Western toilets, sinks, mirrors and shower stalls.

If you prefer solid concrete walls and a metal roof to go with a hard double bed with thick green blankets, go for one of the bungalows strung along a hill behind the visitor centre and restaurant. These also come with fans, attached cold-water bathrooms, white tile floors and glass doors opening to sea-view porches with plastic chairs. Family bungalows come in a couple of sizes as well.


While some scuffs can be expected, these bungalows are newer and more inviting than most of Ko Tarutao’s rooms. They also represent stellar value by Ko Lipe standards, though electricity is switched on only at night.

Adang’s bungalows are far more limited in number and they often fill up from mid-December through March. Calling ahead or reserving a room at the park’s main visitor centre next to Pakbara Pier on the mainland is advisable. You could also try to reserve through the confusing Thai National Parks website. Otherwise you may get lucky if attempting to score a bungalow on the spot. If not, there’s no shortage of tents to go around.
