Near Ao Phra Nang, geology buffs should head to Susaan Hoi (the fossil shell cemetery), where strange dark sheets similar in appearance to fragments of tarmac litter the bottom of a cliff.

This extraordinary geological site is one of just three of its kind found around the world (the other two are in Japan and the United States).
