Mu Koh Ang Thong Marine National Park This comprises some 40 islands about 20 kilometres or two hours by boat northwest of Koh Samui.  The park covers 250 square kilometres, of which about one fifth is land mass.  The most attractive islands include Koh Wua Ta Lap, Koh Mae Ko, Koh Prayat, Koh Sam Sao, Koh Nai Put and Koh Wua Te.  Most islands comprise limestone masses reaching heights of up to 400 metres, and fringed by beaches and rain forest.

An emerald saltwater lake known as Tha-le Nai (Inland Sea) on Koh Mae Ko is the park’s major scenic attraction, and entails a mildly strenuous climb.  The resultant views are well worth the effort.  Another popular venue is Koh Sam Sao where an extensive span of coral reef and a huge rock arch offer scenic fascination.  

The park office is on Koh Wua Ta Lap where bungalow-style accommodation is available.  

Visitors wishing to stay overnight should make advance bookings and specify whether

Local  residents. The restored  Phra Borom That  Chaiya serves as a fine  example of Srivijaya's

influence on religious architecture and is believed to have been built more than 1,200 years ago.

Along the courtyard of the Chedi are several sculptures and Buddha images.
