Bang Rong Pier - FURTHER INFORMATION
Bang Rong Pier - Phuket visitor guide showing a virtual tour of 'Bang Rong Pier' linked to an interactive map with local and travel information. 360° panoramas from South Thailand.
Bang Rong Pier is the departure point for ferries from Phuket to Kho Yoe Noi island. The pier is on the estuary of the Khong Bang Rong, a river on the eastern side of Phuket. About 5 passenger ferries depart each day between 09:30 to 17:00 and the journey takes about an hour.
This is well off the tourist track, and a far cry from the beaches of Phuket, but gives a different insight to life on the island. Nearby is an Elephant Village on the main road, and from there a track leads up to the Gibbon Rehabilitation Project and Bang Bae Waterfall in Khao Phra Thaeo National Park.
TRAVEL DIRECTIONS AND GETTING THERE
Car: Take the 4027 northwest from the Heorines Monument on the 402 and then follow signs to the pier once past Bang Pae and Bang Rong villages.
