Sri Menora Forest Park.
Located just outside Phang Nga town, this Forest Park is a true beauty. Especially at the end of the raining season this park is worth a multiple visit. Sri Menora Forest Park is a lush green jungle with random small and bigger pools where you can relax and swim. Inbetween the ponds and pools you have small and bigger waterfalls. They refresh the water continiously ! Relaxing in the waterstreams is a true relaxation for the mind and body.
The natural surroundings (all lush jungle) makes it a cool place. You don't need to worry about strong and harsh sunlight. The jungle will protect you ! Sri Menora Forest Park is open year round, but in the hot season (feb-april) there is not to much water in the ponds and pools. The best time to go the park is Oct to Dec. And of course throughout the rainy season. The lush jungle florish and the massive waterstreams are a joy to play !

Thai Muang National Park is located in the Thai Muang Sanitary area. The 13-kilometre long beach has fine white sand and runs along the Highway. The area is blessed with crystal clear water. At the end of the beach there is a rocky area called Khao Nayak. This area is good for relaxing and swimming in the clear sea.
The recommended time to visit is between November and February. Sea turtles come to lay their eggs on the shore, thus creating a tradition of walking on the beach to watch turtles lay their eggs on a moonlit night. 70% of Thai Muang National Park is mangroves forest and a birth place formany sealife. The mangroves are beautiful. Take a kayak tour and explore the mangroves yourselves.
