The new popularity of Cocks Comb Island
, just a little over an hour away from Ranong by speedboat, has made the region such a tourist hub that AirAsia (www.airasia.com
) is launching daily Bangkok-Ranong flights on Chinese New Year (Feb 16).
While the powdery beaches of Cocks Comb are a must-visit, the Ranong region is also home to Koh Phayam Island, kept tranquil and comparatively tourist-free because of its long monsoon season.
Come during the dry spells for untouched forests, a beautiful coastline and natural geysers.
The airline currently has a B1,180/round trip promotion for the Bangkok-Ranong flights.
