    I loved everything about this trip and it was such a breath-taking place to visit. The van that picked us up was comfortable, the boat ride was super scenic, we had staff attending to our needs, the guide was super knowledgeable about caves, lunch was delicious and the resort 500Rai was just so relaxing. I really enjoyed the trek and soon after jumping into the cool emerald water for a swim. This was the highlight of our Khao Lak trip.

  • 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.

  • Khao Lak: Sri Phang Nga Canoe and Tam Nang Waterfall Tour

    10. Khao Lak: Sri Phang Nga Canoe and Tam Nang Waterfall Tour

    Following pick-up from your hotel in Khao Lak, explore the Sang-Nea River by canoe and discover why it is known as the "Little Amazon." Get the chance to spot wildlife including snakes, monkeys and birds. Browse the local market of Takuapa before heading to Kuraburi. Trek the serene rainforest of Sri Phang Nga National Park and hike to the Tam Nang Waterfall to swim in the cooling pools. Snack on seasonal fresh fruits and other refreshments. Next, enjoy a delicious set menu lunch at a cozy restaurant. Return to Khao Lak, and stop at a unique coffee shop for an aromatic drink and to experience the local herbs at the hot springs along the way.

    We had a wonderful excursion with our driver and guide, Ran. The little Amazon canoe ride was really peaceful and beautiful. We saw some snakes sleeping on the trees as well as birds and lizards. The mangrove trees were spectacular. We went to the less visited national park called Sri Phang Nga. We fed quite a few fishes and started our trek (500 m) through the forest. It was quite a gentle trek and our guide (Ran) was very knowledgeable and showed us the flora and fauna as we were walking. The Tam Nang waterfall was spectacular and was in full flow as it was the rainy season. It was very impressive as we felt the spray from the water. It is one of the highest falls in Khao Lak. After a lovely lunch in the national park we went to the Romannee Hot Springs. It was therapeutic and relaxing but we had to be careful with the hottest pools!! It was a lovely experience though. I will recommend this itinerary as an alternative to staying on the beach.

I really recommend this activity for a day in the national park! This is the opportunity to take advantage of it to 1000% through many activities: trekking in the jungle, bamboo rafting to visit a cave, boat to discover the park, swimming pool also to relax at the end of the day and canoe if we want it. We had a great guide Miss Pooky, who made us enjoy a great day! Thanks again !
