Most Ang Thong visitors arrive on a join-in day trip or by boat charter from Koh Samui or Koh Pha Ngan. For those who wish to stay overnight, there are six simple bungalows and camping tents available for rent at the Park Headquarters on Koh Wua Talab, where a simple restaurant is found as well. Though the park has started to get busy with day-trippers in the peak season, the Ang Thong islands remain the postcard-perfect image of a tropical paradise.
The park headquarters is located on Ko Wua Talap, which has basic bungalow accommodation, visitor center, first aid tent and a kayaks for rent to get you around beautiful scenery of the 42 tropical islands.
The costs of bungalows are 600 baht per day for a 2 bedroom cottage. The cottages are set against a beautiful backdrop and the park staff are very friendly and fanatical about football. However, please note that the park is not for the resort seeker. Facilities are basic: no hot water. Angthong National Marine park shuts off its generator at 23:00, so expect no electricity at night (which only adds to the appeal of the place). Reservations of bungalow can ONLY be made using Thai government website http://www.dnp.go.th/parkreserve/reservation.asp.
