One special feature that distinguishes Phang Nga from other places is the almost vertical and huge limestone cliffs. What is limestone cliffs made of? Well, it is basically calcium carbonate, however, over millions of years, it formed due to marine organisms’ constant rain, in addition to the chemical precipitation of more calcium carbonate building many thick layers and eventually, falling into the effects of pressure and heat making it into stone and a geological miracle.
