The islands of Thailand are limestone and have lots of sharp nooks and crannies and caves in them. The rock walls and sheer cliffs are extremely rough and rugged and don't see much in the way of climbing. The water undercuts them at the bottom, creating some mushroom shaped ones. Here, the waters in Pilch Hong are clear and the white sand is in contrast to the dark weeds growing. 'Hong' just means 'room' in Thai.
I'll apologize in advance for the massive number of pictures of the hongs. I loaded them when I had an internet connection and just couldn't bring myself to delete them! Hope you enjoy the view, but as always, the best view is with your own eyes in person!
The rugged walls of the cliff sides of Koh Muk.
Well, Koh Muk and Phi Phi Le were my two 'Must See' islands/hongs before we left Thailand. We'll have to see more of what the bay has to offer on our next trip through here. We headed back to Malaysia from here to join the Sail Malaysia, Passage To The East Rally.
