Full description
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 in Khao Lak.

    We were picked up on time. The driver and the guide were very personable and we felt very cared for. She even had my partner's lunch adjusted because she happened to learn that he was allergic to pineapples. We loved the elephant bathing and the bamboo raft trip. We could have done without the market that we visited first. I found it rather uncomfortable and rather spoiled my stomach. Unfortunately, the stench is really bad.

    Super nice trip. My daughter turned 17 and I was up this trip and had a day full of experiences. The elephant bathing was really fun. Bamboo rafting was a beautiful experience, just like the trip in the rainforest and coffee made in bamboo over an open fire was a great experience. On the way back we stopped at a temple where there were a lot of monkeys - it was fun :-) Our guide Mee was sweet and helpful and good at English.

    It was great. We enjoyed it all, loved bathing the elephants and interacting with them. The bamboo rafting was beautiful and relaxing with the bamboo coffee to break up trip down river. Monkeys we saw right up close at temple, but also on river. And lunch... was great with lots of choice. We had an English guide to answer our questions and driver was very accommodating. Only needed a little extra money to feed elephants, but optional. We thought day covered a range of experiences for good value, and we were family with teenage children.
