Full description
First. you will get picked up from your hotel. Start your tour at the Soi Dog Foundation and learn about the rescue and rehabilitation work of a dog and cat shelter that is fighting the cruel dog meat trade of Asia. Interact with up to 400 street dogs and cats that have been rescued with the aim of rehousing them in safety.

Continue to the famous "Monkey Cave" of Wat Suwan Kuha, and look around the Buddhist temple and the cave of Tam Yai. Discover how there are many interconnected caves in the mountain, of which Tam Yai is the biggest. See the massive 15-meter gold reclining Buddha icon at the temple and take in the stunning surroundings. 

Next, go to Ao Phang-nga National Park to venture through the magical mangrove forest by longtail boat. Stop at a fishing village on Pan-Yee Island and enjoy a tasty lunch. Then, it's time to take in the spectacular James Bond Island, so-named as it was where the blockbuster movie “The Man With The Golden Gun” was filmed. Continue to the island of Khao Phing Kan to look at the extraordinary limestone karst formations.

Experience the beauty of Phuket by sea canoe at the end of the day. To ensure your safety, your expert guide will paddle the canoe as the waters in this area can be difficult. Paddle around Talu Island before returning to the pier for the drive back to your hotel.
