Print this trip

Experience a eight-day nature lovers’ adventure through Southern Thailand. Prepare yourself for a memorable trip that gives you the chance to hike through fauna-filled national parks, voyage through majestic lakes, explore paradisiacal caves, and inhale the pure air of tropical forests. Drop anchor on the turquoise beaches of some of the most stunning islands of the world in the Andaman Sea. From the coast to the interior and back, this incredible region of Thailand is wildly different from what you might expect, so prepare yourself for a sensory splendour of the south.

The Experience

Day 1 : DEPART LONDON HEATHROW

Today you will board on an overnight plane to Bangkok (1 stopover; 1-5 hours’ layover).

Overnight stay in the plane.

Day 2 : ARRIVAL PHUKET – KHAO SOK NATIONAL PARK (290km – 6 hrs)

Arrive in Phuket, where our representative will meet, greet, and transfer you to Khao Sok National Park, in between the Andaman coast and the Gulf of Thailand. The park boasts Thailand’s largest virgin forests and is considered one of the oldest rainforests on the planet. Some of the park’s amazing features include enormous limestone rock formations which jut dramatically out of the pristine lakes, deep, mesmerising valleys, mysterious caves, and much more. If lucky, you may stumble upon one of the many species of wild animals that live in the park, including elephants, leopards, bears, gibbons, and even tigers. After the visit, return to the hotel and spend the evening at leisure.

Overnight in hotel in Khao Sok.

Day 3 : KHAO SOK NATIONAL PARK – CHEOW LAN LAKE (65km – 6 hrs)

After a tasty breakfast at the hotel, we head towards the breathtaking Cheow Lan Lake within Khao Sok National Park for an exciting day trip. Cheow Lan is an enormous man-made lake that features towering limestone cliffs, crystal-clear water, and stunning views to match. Take a boat trip on the lake to see all the area has to offer, enjoy a light trek into the jungle, and explore a cave. Enjoy a mouthwatering lunch at a local restaurant and once the tour is finished, return to the resort to relax and unwind.

Overnight in hotel in Khao Sok.

Day 4 : KHAO SOK – KHANOM (240km – 5 hrs)

Begin your day with a tasty breakfast at the hotel before you depart Khao Sok, going to Surat Thani. On the way, visit Phra Boromathat in Chaiya, a beautiful temple that possibly dates back to the eighth century. An old pagoda within the temple compound is said to house relics of Lord Buddha. After the stop in Chaiya, drive to Surat Thani and transfer to the pier to board the motorized long-tail boat for an hour-long ride on the River Tapi – the longest river in Southern Thailand. Pass the interesting waterfront houses and observe local life in motion, before having lunch at a restaurant in town. Then, continue onward to Tham Khao Wang Thong, a limestone and iron ore cave full of imposing stalactites. End the tour in the evening with a transfer to your hotel.

Overnight in hotel in Khanom.

Day 5 : KHANOM – NAKHON SI THAMMARAT – PHATTHALUNG (255km – 5 hrs)

Enjoy breakfast at the hotel and continue the journey on to Nakhon Si Thammarat. Arrive in the city and visit Wat Phra Mahathat, considered the oldest temple in Thailand. Although uncertain, some say it could date back to the 11th century. Afterwards, continue to the shadow puppet museum and the old home of shadow puppet master, Suchart Subsin to learn about the region’s shadow theatre culture. Indulge in a lovely lunch at a local restaurant and continue your trip to breathe in the fresh air in Baan Kiri Wong, translated as ‘village surrounded by the mountains’. Make friends with the locals while visiting the village community and take in the beautiful view of the creek and mountain before moving on to the final stop of the day, Phatthalung.

Overnight in hotel in Phatthalung.

Day 6 : PHATTHALUNG – TRANG (130 km – 3 hrs)

Wake up early to explore Thale Noi Lake, one of the most important wetland ecosystems in the country and Thailand’s largest waterfowl reserve. Enjoy the scenic views of the area, where you can observe numerous species of birds in their natural habitat. During the season, you can see the lake full of dreamlike water lilies with blooming lotus flowers. After this mesmerising natural experience, return to the resort to enjoy breakfast and replenish your energy before continuing your journey and heading towards Trang. On the way, visit Tham Le Khao Kob cave in the Huai Yot district, a wonderful eco-tourism adventure spot. Go inside and observe the cave’s stream and its impressive stalagmite and stalactite formations as your guide navigates the way through some of the nooks and crannies. This is not for the faint-hearted since at times you must lie down in the boat just to pass! Finish the day in Trang where you have the evening to relax at your pleasure, perhaps visiting the night market and sampling the delicious local foods.

Overnight in hotel in Trang.

Day 7 : TRANG – ISLAND HOPPING – KRABI (150km – 6 hrs)

Begin the day with a tasty breakfast at your hotel, preparing for a morning transfer to Pak Meng Pier to join the day-trip visit to Koh Kradan, Koh Mook, and Koh Chuak islands. If weather permits, you will have the chance to admire the spectacular Emerald Cave. This relaxing boat trip takes you around the islands where you can bask in the sun, admiring this earthly paradise filled with beautiful white sand beaches and crystal-clear water. Enjoy your picnic lunch before you return to Pak Meng Pier, and then continue your adventure onward to Krabi.

Overnight in hotel in Krabi.

Day 8 : KRABI – KOH KLANG – DEPART KRABI (60km – 5 hrs)

Get ready for another adventure while indulging in a rich breakfast at the hotel. Today you will explore the other side of Krabi, visiting the small island of Koh Klang, located at the mouth of the River Krabi and the Andaman Sea. Arrive at Tara Pier and take a long-tail boat for a short five-minute ride to the island. As cars are not used on the island, take a tuk-tuk and travel into the unspoilt village of Baan Koh Klang where the indigenous locals still live the old, traditional way. See the rice fields, the local boat-crafting house, and check out the batik fabric painting. Savour the lively flavours of a Thai set lunch at a local restaurant, and then explore the mangrove forest by long-tail boat. After relaxing in this small, charming village, transfer back to the mainland, then to your hotel in Krabi or to Krabi International Airport.

Breakfast and lunch included.
