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.
This morning you'll enjoy a half day tour of Bangkok, visiting the stunning Grand Palace complex and the Royal Temple of the Emerald Buddha. You'll also stop at the nearby Wat Po, Bangkok's oldest and largest Wat, and home to the largest reclining Buddha. Your afternoon is free for you to enjoy at your leisure.
We start today with a cycling tour of the countryside around Bangkok. You'll visit the Kamalulislam mosque, hub of the local Muslim community, ride along canals glimpsing the life of local Thai families. You'll visit fish farms, rice mills, traditional Thai wooden houses and before arriving in the old market town of Nong Chock. Here we trade your bikes for boats and complete your journey with a river cruise down the Saen Seab canal. In the evening, we transfer to the train station to board the overnight sleeper train to Surat Thani, in a second class, air conditioned, sleeping berth.
On arrival in Surat Thani, we'll take time for breakfast before transferring you by road to Khao Sok National Park. The park comprises 656 sq. km. of dense rainforest with waterfalls, limestone cliffs, numerous streams, an island-studded lake, and many riverside walking trails. Late morning you'll take a walk into the park with an experienced local jungle guide. After lunch you'll visit some small caves and a village temple. You spend the night in large treehouses (complete with proper beds, shower and toilet), right up in the forest canopy
After breakfast we transfer to the Raja Phraba Lake and travel by boat to our accommodation for the night - raft houses, floating on the lake. After settling in and taking lunch, we will take a boat trip for a 2 to 3-hour hike to a wonderful vantage point giving a dramatic and panoramic view of the lake and surrounding jungle. After dinner you can take a guided walk to observe the natural nightlife of the rainforest.
It’s an early start today for a longer hike into the jungle to observe and learn more about the local flora and fauna. We’ll view local wildlife, giant trees - some with huge buttress roots, wild orchids, ferns and much more. We then return to the raft houses for a late lunch and the rest of the afternoon is free to relax. Various options are available to swim, or go tubing on the river.
The morning is free for you to relax and enjoy your natural surroundings in the park. After lunch we provide a private transfer to the idyllic beach resort of Krabi. You'll check into your luxurious beach resort with lots of facilities, swimming pools, and normally a private beach. The rest of the afternoon will be free for you to just relax on the beach after your exertions of the last few days in the park.
Today you will take a cruise to visit some of the most beautiful beaches, islands and coral reefs in the area. En route you'll pass beautiful off-shore islands and spectacular limestone rock formations. We'll stop Rai Leh Beach, one of the most beautiful and romantic beaches in Thailand, with time for swimming, rock climbing or trekking up the mountain for a breathtaking view of the lagoon. You'll then visit nearby islands to experience snorkelling over the stunning corals and to swim with dazzling schools of fish.
Your next activity in Krabi is an easy kayaking trip to explore the mangrove forests and river estuary, and to admire their fascinating ecological systems. There should be a chance to see water monitor, monkeys, and gibbons. After paddling through mangrove forests, the day’s highlight will be passing beneath the Khanab Nam Mountain, a magnificent canyon covered with wild flora and extending for some 400 meters. The afternoon is free to relax and soak up the sun back in your hotel.
We have kept today completely free for you to just enjoy and relax at your resort in Krabi. Of course if you'd like to do more excursions or activities there are plenty of options available to you.
