  • Khao Sok: Full-Day Bamboo Rafting and Elephant Bathing

    1. Khao Sok: Full-Day Bamboo Rafting and Elephant Bathing

    Following pick-up from your hotel in Khao Lak, head to the Takuapa local market (only guests picked up from Khao lak, guests from other pickup locations will not visit local market) to browse and look at all the products. From there, continue to the elephant rescue camp. Feed these amazing animals some bananas and cool them off with a bath. Next, visit the monkey temple. Eat a Thai-style lunch at the local restaurant next to the river before bamboo rafting along the Khao Sok river. Enjoy as your guides gently glide the bamboo rafts downstream as you admire the dramatic limestone mountains and serene sounds of the jungle. Stop at the river bank for some trekking and relaxing in the front of a limestone cave after enjoying a coffee break. This coffee is made in a bamboo stick and served in bamboo cups, which you can take home with you. At the end of your tour, transfer back to your hotel...

    Excellent varied day, doing things you will probably do once in your lifetime. Anyone worried about being on the rafts, don’t...the waters only up to your knees if you fell in.

  • From Phuket: James Bond Island Excursion by Longtail Boat

    2. From Phuket: James Bond Island Excursion by Longtail Boat

    First, you will get picked up from your hotel. Start this full-day tour visiting the famous Monkey Cave of Wat Suwan Kuha. Discover the many interconnected caves in the mountain and admire the gold reclining Buddha image at the temple. Explore the magical mangrove forest of Ao Phang Nga National Park by long-tail boat. Stop at a fishing village on Pan Yee Island to enjoy a tasty lunch before seeing James Bond Island, where the blockbuster movie, The Man with the Golden Gun, was filmed. Continue to Khao Phing Kan to see the stunning limestone karst formations. Experience the area’s beauty by sea canoe, paddling around Talu Island before returning to the pier. To ensure your safety, your expert guide will paddle the canoe for you, as the waters in this area can be difficult for paddling. 

    This experience was amazing and I’d definitely recommend to anyone. Our tour guide was lovely and always willing to take pictures for you and even recommended the best spots to take these. One of the best moments of this trip had to be kayaking through the caves - an unforgettable experience and our kayak guide took some brilliant photos for us. The only downside for us was the length of the transfer in order to board the boat which was around 3 hours each way - however for the experience it’s 100% worth it.

a top activity. The visit starts only from 12 noon, but then afterwards you will be amazed. It is really a very nice activity if you want to visit the islands of Thailand and admire breathtaking landscapes. In addition the leaders are adorable and very smiling and even if you do not speak too much English he manages to help you. I really advise it

Excellent varied day, doing things you will probably do once in your lifetime. Anyone worried about being on the rafts, don’t...the waters only up to your knees if you fell in.
