Usually guided tours of this "unspoiled" corner are conducted by guides in English. For those who do not understand English, it is better to immerse yourself in the history of the place beforehand. Mighton has long been closed to tourists, as the territory belonged to a close friend of the king. And only the Rulers of countries such as Vietnam, Cambodia and Singapore rested there.

Today, the island is also used for recreation by "heads of state," as evidenced by the presence of an airstrip near the coast. At the moment, despite the fact that the island is open, there are small restrictions. For example, Mighton can be visited by only 200 people a day, and not all travel agencies can make tours to the island.

Prices for excursions start at 2500 baht and can reach 5000 baht. Usually that price includes transfer from the hotel and speed boat both ways, a buffet lunch, fruit and drinks.

Such a high price is due to the fact that the territory of the island to this day is private. Because of this, it is as if tourists buy an entrance ticket, and part of the money is used to keep Myton clean.
