The Butang Islands are part of the Tarutao National Park, and they lie about 40 nautical miles southwest of Rok Nok, on the Thailand-Malaysia border.
While most of the islands are uninhabited, there is a sea gypsy village on Koh Lipe, on the northeast side, and a few simple bungalow sites to the south.
The islands offer very interesting hikes. Barry, who is Canadian, runs a small diving school here, and also manages a bakery on the island.
Koh Adang is known for its crystal clear spring water, which comes from an almost year-round mountain spring and provides the island with stable drinking water.
If you have time, enjoy a day or two of natural beauty and peace on the Butang Islands.
