We spend three months every year on Bulon, and have done for the past seven years. We have visited most of the Andaman Islands and feel that this is the best. Very good accommodation, beautiful beach, excellent fresh food, very reasonably priced. Very welcoming smiley people. If you want discos, night life and fast food - no for you.

Unplanned holiday here, but worth a visit. Resorts are easy to find along the road. We stayed at Khemaksorn Resort with Muslim Thai food. Bought rapid water kayaking from the resort, and everything was taken care of. The van picked u up at the resort, brought you to the starting point upstream. Once you are in the canoe, it's go and go and go downstream, cascading down in several levels, rapid and slow, passed through narrow and sharp corners at reasonable price, for about 7 km long. Adventure!

We were there for the first time with big group with young children. There was nothing much to see and do at all other than a bridge to walk around the rock. It was poor maintenance also

This is the stepping stone to the Adang-Rawi archipelago and Tarutao Marine National Park. Pakbara village is situated on the picturesque mouth of the Pakbara river. It is nightmarish and distressing to think that it may soon be destroyed - the government is pressing ahead with plans for a monstrous deep-sea port connected to what they call a "land bridge" to the eastern seaboard. An entire mountain will be excavated to reclaim land. What might happen to the marine parks with ocean-going ships barging through them is unthinkable.
But to the present - Pakbara is a peaceful, friendly, predominantly Muslim village. It features cheap overnight accommodation and a strip of excellent and unusually cheap restaurants on the waterside. Enjoy it before leaving for Lipe where food and drink is twice as expensive and half as good.
We used the friendly Baanpun Travel who fixed us up with boat tickets and car parking. The boat was new, fast, and operations at the new government pier are efficient. But for no obvious architectural reason, there are level changes of 2-3cm scattered throughout the new pier building - toe-stubbing single steps that someone has tried to mark with red paint and gaffer tape. Look before you trip.
We ate at the Krua Fah Sai restaurant - excellent food, very reasonable price, and they served beer. Be warned - not all restaurants serve alcohol.
All in all we had a very favourable impression of Pakbara village. My heart goes out to the poor inhabitants who have this hateful project hanging over them.

I was not impressed about this bay. In the month of April the wind blows from west so the see is very rough and the beach doesn't look nice. Very dirty and full of debris brought from the tide. The east side is the best

one of the Unseen Thailand, kayaking through the caves to the limestone sinkhole called 'Prasat Hin Pun Yod' or 'Thousand- Spire Stone Temple'
easily accessible by private car or taxi and public transport to Ban Bo Chet Luk Pier, half-day or one-day trip run by the local community Enterprise will take you on the boat to Khao Yai Island, then go on kayaking to the caves and sinkhole.
Universal design: **
no disabled parking, no wheelchair accessible boat, but available assistants to transfer you to and from the boat/kayak, the sea during an off-monsoon season is not too risky.
the sandy beach and the sea water in the sinkhole are quite clear and beautiful.
life jackets for everyone, Khao Yai Island is not far from the Mainland, the sea during an off-monsoon season is quite calm.
the non-English-speaking local guides from the community Enterprise are friendly and helpful.

Ploy Siam Speedboat is one of the company which makes the travel between Pak Bara Pier and Koh Lipe. The travel is fast, cool and safe, a bit bumpy on rough sea. The sailors are nice people.
