One of Thailand’s most preserved and untouched park is the Tarutao National Park located in the Strait of Malacca, Satun Province in the Andaman Sea.

The Malay word “Tarutao” means “old, mysterious, and primitive” which actually tells about the characteristics of the park.  Tarutao National Park covers 51 islands with well-preserved forests, wildlife, healthy coral reefs and white sand beaches. This is known as the seventh largest island in Thailand.

One of the famous destination in the park is the Ko Lipe, it is a small island in south of Ko Adang. This was one of the most beautiful island in the park before but now, it serves as a pier for long-tail and speed boats that arranged visits to other destination islands for diving, snorkeling and other activities.
