Ko Por is a island in Krabi Province.

Understand[edit]

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.

Do[edit][add listing]

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.

Respect[edit]

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).
