Planning A Thailand Vacation? Add This Hidden Island To Your Itinerary

by Staff

If you’re dreaming of a tropical getaway without breaking the bank, Ko Muk, in Ko Libong, Thailand, might be your hidden gem. This little known island features white sandy beaches, crystal blue waters and surprisingly affordable accommodations. With rooms available at a portion of the usual cost, you can make the most of happy hour cocktails without breaking your bank. Ko Muk offers a peaceful escape where you can enjoy the incredible weather, beaches and indulge in water activities like kayaking, paddle boarding and scuba diving, all for an affordable £30 (approximately Rs 3000). According to Daily Star, cocktails in the island can cost as little as £1 (approximately Rs 100) during happy hour, while dinner for two along with a pint of beer for approximately 60 to 70 baht (approximately Rs 140 to 160).

Koh Muk has one attraction, which cannot be missed, the Emerald Cave. The place is only accessible by boat and you’ll be crossing pitch dark cave waters for approximately 80 meters. Upon reaching the other side, the sunlight reflects on the cave water, transforming the lagoon into an emerald green colour, surrounded by shining white sand. This unique experience offers the option to swim inside the cave.

Locally known as Morakot Cave, another cave in Koh Muk has a picturesque beach surrounded by rocks, cliffs and lush greenery. The crystal clear waters around the cave also has a coral reef, which offers an excellent opportunity for wildlife enthusiasts to spot various marine life. Alternatively, for a similar price, the island has various other options, including popular spots like Charlie Beach, the Farang Beach and delightful walks around the island.

Mong Bar, located on the beach, provides stunning sunset views and a relaxed atmosphere with chilled music. Reportedly, cocktails here cost just 100 baht (approximately Rs 230), and a full dinner for two costs less than £10 (approximately Rs 1000). Take advantage of the happy hour, where drinks are only £1 and consider renting kayaks for under £3 (approximately Rs 300). The island also has reggae bars, a few small clubs and unique spots like Soy Soy bar, where you can play your own music. Beer prices are incredibly reasonable, as some tourists claim it costs between 60 to 70 baht.

According to reports, a 5 day stay at Phusam Big Resort bungalow costs just £48 (approximately Rs 5000). For those willing to spend a bit more, Oyoy Reggaebar offers a bungalow attached to the bar for £72 (approximately Rs 7000) for five days. Beach lovers can opt for Mookies Bungalows, located just a few steps away from the beach, where a 5 night stay is priced at just £109 (approximately Rs 11,000).
