Ko Muk, Thailand

Ko Muk is an island located in Trang Province, one of the southern provinces of Thailand. Ko Muk is mostly occupied by sea-facing towering cliffs to the west. Located on the eastern side of the island is a village of fishermen who have still maintained their ways of life as islanders.

On the island to the north is Tham Morakot (Emerald Cave), a unique sea cave. With light from the outside, emerald water can be seen inside the cave; it is an unusual and beautiful sight. A tunnel leads to a sea lagoon which is surrounded by limestone cliffs and a hidden white sand beach.
