National Park, Wildlife and Plant Conservation Department
Ao Phang Nga National Park (Thai: อุทยานแห่งชาติอ่าวพังงา) is in Phang Nga Province in southern Thailand. It was created by royal decree and announced in the Royal Gazette under proclamation number 98, section 64 of 29 April 1981.
The dramatic appearance of the islands with their sheer sides has made the area a popular tourist attraction. The park also protects the largest area of native mangrove forest remaining in Thailand.
