Ko Por is a island in Krabi Province.
Ko Por is a tiny island of about 1.6 sq km, in front of the Ko Lanta Yai Old Pier. The majority of the 500 residents of the island are Muslims who support themselves through agriculture and fishing. It has one primary school, a mosque, and a nursery. There are about three beaches and the biggest one is on the southwest of the island, near the pier.
How to get there:
You can easily walk around the island.
Ko Por is a good place for people looking for another way of travel. You can discover the local flora, fauna and Thai rural culture.
In Ko Por there is enough to do for 3-4 days but not for a long stay. Some villagers can show you how to cut a rubber tree, take you fishing, or for a trip on a longtail boat. Hiking on the island is also very nice. It's also fun to be on the beach in the evening, when there may be hundreds of little crabs scurrying out of the water and across the sand.
There are no shops on the island, so if you need something, get it on Ko Lanta.
You can find the family local food which is composed mostly by seafood and local fruit in homestay or bungalow guesthouse
There are some homestays where you can live with a Thai family for some days. You need to try to ask to the villagers to know more.
The homestay or guest house will arrange for you to go back at Ko Lanta Yai
To respect the Muslims on the island, who might consider it inappropriate for a woman to be seen wearing a typical bathing suit, it may be best to swim on the beach in the northwest of the island, because a Buddhist family lives there. It would also be respectful to refrain from drinking among Muslims, for whom the ingestion of alcohol is haram (forbidden).
