Full description
Begin your day tour with a hotel pick-up in Khao Lak between 8:00 AM - 9:00 AM, and depart for the river. Hop on a bamboo raft and float along the waters, relax and enjoy the stunningly beautiful rainforest around you as your raft is pulled by a local boatman. Visit a sea turtle conservation center working to save and increase the number of sea turtles in the region. The Royal Thai Navy plays an active role in turtle conservation and baby turtles are brought to the center, where they are nursed for 6-8 months before being released into the sea. Finish the tour with a trip to Ton Pling Waterfall, the most popular waterfall in the area. Experience the lovely atmosphere and marvel at the amazing environment surrounding you. Swim in the small ponds at the waterfall and just enjoy the relaxing ambiance, before being dropped off back at your hotel.

    Our guide was the best!

    We had the pleasure of being only our family, making it easy to adapt to our needed, we had an infant and a 5-year old with us. Our guide was almost fluent in English, which gave us the possibility to engage into conversation and understanding more about Thai culture. We really enjoyed the turtle rescue center and rafting, it was very fun for us and the 5year old. The waterfall was okay, but very crowded.

    This trip is amazing! Everything was just perfect. The guide, the stops and the weather, we couldn’t have asked for more. The guide was so sweet and kind, he did his job very vel. We can’t say what part that were the best, because everything was the Best! We recommend everyone to go on the trip - AND remember to bring their swimwear, you can get a lille bit wet on the bamboorafting and you have to jump in the waterfall!

    Mixed feelings

    We booked a 5 hour trip to do bamboo rafting, the turtle conservation sanctuary and waterfall. As it turned out we were the only ones on the trip which was a bonus. No waiting for other people at each stop. Our guide was very nice, but seemed to rush us at the turtle sanctuary. Then there was a change of vehicle with her cousin waiting at the waterfall to take us back to the hotel. We are not sure exactly what that was about. Overall our trip was only 3 hours. Did we miss out on something? Again, we’re just not sure.
