Gorgeous beach in Thailand. Sandy powdery, white sand, clear warm water and lots of magnificent shells. We stopped in an area without tourists and had our own private beach. It was heavenly!

1. Which trip is better - 4 island or 7 island sunset tour? - 7 island in a day would be boring & very tedious, better do it in two days. while getting down from the boat, you all would get wet.....every time.....may not like it. It is also quiet hot, we Asian's experience heat through the year, may not like to be in the sun through the day. 2. Timings of both tour - 4 island tour would start in the morning @ 08:30 & end by max 16:00, lunch, water & fruits included. The food is very basic, rice & one or two side dish. 7 island with sun set should start the same time & end @ 7:30. Bar-B-Q dinner included in it. If you just take the sunset tour, they generally start @ 13:30 or may be a bit late. 3. We are 2 person. We have no problem with sharing with 4-6 people. What will be approx cost for a trip to 4/7 island tour in a long tail boat sharing basis? - Approx Cost of 4 Island Tour in a long tail boat would be approx. 700 THB. 7 island & sun set, we did not go, so do not know. Sun Set tour is not advisable now since, it is monsoon season & in case there are clouds, no use. Please be aware that there are two options, speed boat or long tail boat. speed boats are more comfortable & high speed, long tails are just basic fitted with an engine. Boarding & getting down from a long tail boat is uncomfortable . you all would get wet till waist level. Ok for young guys. They charge additional 200Thb for a speedboat option & completes the trip at least an hour earlier than a long tail boat. 4. From where I can book for that? Please share if anyone has any reliable agent's contact details. - Do not book in advance, just go to any counter and book current, it would be cheaper, can negotiate. All agents seem to be reliable. We stayed @ Phra Nang Inn @ Ao Nang beach, try the agent just opposite to it ( do not remember the name of the agent). many agents, all same rates. 5. Lunch menu's - Rice, some veg gravy, some chicken fry or Thai green curry . Menu varies from agent to agent, do not expect any thing elaborate, just very basic to fill the belly. 6. 400 thb pay to national park is mandatory? (we will not do any kind of water activities like snorkeling, swimming etc -All the islands are declared as National parks, nothing related to any activity, a sort of tax, we paid to the tour guide before we started the trip. It is also a fact that I did not find any counter @ any island where they collect the fees, well I also did not ask for the receipt. There may be some fallacy, seem to be mandatory.
