DIY trip to Phang Nga Bay, Koh Panyi and Monkey Temple

Hi Everyone.

Just enquiring if anyone can advise us please on how to organise this trip ourselves if possible. I have had a price for the Boss transfer to Phang Nga pier. And I understand we could hopefully hire a longboat for our family of four. How do you then get to the Monkey Temple? Would our driver take us there or is it a separate excursion.

Appreciate any advise.

The Monkey Temple is about 2.5 km from the pier and the driver and is very easy to find (straight up to the highway, turn left towards Phuket for 1.5km, the entrance to the temple is well signed and is on the right. Take next U-Turn and come back to the entrance now on your left) The driver should be able to take you there. It is perhaps better known to Thais by its Thai name Wat Suwan Kuha or Wat Suwankuha. You could ask Boss to include that in his quote.

Alternatively Green Andaman Travel do the tour including the temple - contact http://www.greenandamantravel.com/

or local Khao Lak guide, Lora of Dior Travel in Bang Niang, will organise it and probably accompany you on it. Contact her on diorkhaolak@yahoo.co.th
