Ko Phra Thong

In Thai, phra thong means golden Buddha, and a legend tells of how a valuable solid gold Buddha image was buried somewhere on the island hundreds of years ago. Any treasure hunters seem to have given up their searches long ago, which isn’t surprising given Ko Phra Thong’s unforgivingly hot and expansive savannah landscape.


Totally unique not only in Thailand but all of Southeast Asia, visitors toKo Phra Thong often remark that the landscape looks strikingly similar to the savannahs of Africa, except that it’s sand lizards and kingfishers that roam rather than lions and gazelles...
