About Travel to Koh Ngai
Koh Ngai is a small island, measuring 4 km by 2 km at its widest point, located off the West coast of Thailand to the South of Koh Lanta. Koh Ngai is the furthest North of a cluster of 4 islands. The other 3 islands, Koh Muk, Koh Kradan and Koh Libong, are all easily reached on a day trip from Koh Ngai, as are a number of other much smaller uninhabited islands. These islands, small and large, are a picturesque brackdrop to Koh Ngai’s excellent beaches, of which there are 4. The longest beach (around 2 km), on the East coast, is where virtually all the island’s accommodation is located, along with the island’s very few independent bars and restaurants.
Koh Ngai has no roads, no mains electric supply and no ATM machines. Koh Ngai basically consist of a series of resorts catering to pretty much all the needs of the people who stay there.
The price of the accommodation on Koh Ngai is relatively expensive compared to mainland Thailand and the larger islands, as is the cost of the food and drink. There is a small amount of budget accommodation in very basic huts and tents, which can get very hot during the day. For a bungalow that might cost you 1,000 to 2,000 THB per night on Koh Lanta you can expect to pay 4,000 to 6,000 THB a night on Koh Ngai. What you get for these high prices, however, is direct access to very good beaches which for the most of the time are very quiet. It’s rare to find good beaches which are not over crowded in Thailand, and Koh Ngai is one of the handful of places in Thailand where you can still find such a beach.
