Itinerary

  • Day 1:
  • Arrive in Bangkok

We meet you at Bangkok airport and transfer you to your hotel. The rest of the day is free for you to settle in and relax.

  • Day 2:
  • Bangkok

Early this morning we transfer you to Bung Sam Lan Lake on the outskirts of Bangkok for a full day of fishing for Mekong Catfish, carp and other species. Bung Sam Lan is a well stocked, boarded lake covering some 20 acres and holding some of the biggest freshwater fish found anywhere in the world. Bung Sam Lan Lake is a real fishing paradise that has great facilities and warm Thai hospitality where you will find comfortable, traditional Thai bungalows with a large fishing pontoon, rigging table and weighing scales. A supermarket and a restaurant service are open all day and all night. Food can also be ordered and delivered to your own bungalow. You will be provided with all the tackle and bait required and our expert guides will be on hand to assist you throughout the day.

  • Day 3:
  • Si Nakharin Reservoir

Early this morning we make the 5-hour drive to Si Nakharin reservoir, stopping at Kanchanaburi en-route. Kanchanaburi is a small town made famous as the site of the bridge on the River Kwai. Here you're free to visit the famous bridge over the River Kwai along with World War II cemeteries and the local War Museum. From here we continue on to the reservoir, arriving early afternoon. Accommodation at the reservoir is in a comfortable floating teakwood house.

  • Day 4-6:
  • Si Nakharin Reservoir

The next 3 days are dedicated to fishing for the elusive snakehead. This powerful predator is renowned for being a challenging fish to catch and we use high powered speedboat to easily and quickly get to and from the best fishing spots. Si Nakharin is around 100 km long and offers excellent lure fishing for all snakehead species and jungle perch, as well as bottom fishing for various Thai fish species of interest. The reservoir’s Giant Snakehead (Channa micropeltes) population is big, and numerous catches by our clients have been well over the 5 kg mark, the biggest catches being weighted on certified scales at 6.00 kg. At the end of each day you can relax in your comfortable floating house, eating traditional Thai food, drinking cool beers and watching the sun go down over serene jungle views.

  • Day 7:
  • Si Nakharin Reservoir

This morning you'll get a chance for a final half day snakehead fishing, before we transfer back to Bangkok by road.

  • Day 8:
  • Bangkok

Early this morning we transfer you to Bung Sam Lan on the outskirts of Bangkok for a full day of fishing for Mekong Catfish, carp and other species. You will be provided with all the tackle and bait required and our expert guides will be on hand to assist you throughout the day.

Today is completely free for you to recover from your week of fishing and to enjoy some last minute shopping or some more sightseeing, before we transfer you back to airport for flight home.
