Full description
Venture north of Phuket to Khao Lak, known for its stretches of beach and lush jungle scenery. Explore this peaceful slice of Thai paradise on a full-day tour. The first stop is the Sarasin Bridge, one of Thailand’s most beautiful and famous bridges. It connects Phuket to the province of Phang Nga and has gained renown due to the tragic Romeo and Juliet-style story associated with it. It'll be a quick stop here to view the surrounding bay and take photos of the gazebos and elevated turrets. Then, head to the Andaman View Point, where you can admire a 360-degree view of the surrounding fields, hills, and mountains. Head to the river for the bamboo rafting activity. Board a small yet sturdy raft made out of bamboo and cruise down the river, admiring the calm waters and the abundant greenery of the area. Next, you'll make your way to the Sea Turtle Conservation Center. Located across the Khao Lak National Park in the Thai navy base, learn about the efforts the navy is going to to rehabilitate the turtles. Catch a glimpse of the numerous turtles and other endangered marine life. Take an hour to have lunch and relax near the conservation center. After lunch, head to the International Tsunami Museum and discover how the effects of the 2004 tsunami greatly affected the Khao Lak area. See the Thai navy boat that was washed ashore by a massive wave. The final destination is the Lampi Waterfall. Head over to this multi-level waterfall, walk through the rainforest trail, and even take a dip in the chilly pool before making your way back to your accommodation in Phuket.

Our guide Hamit is a drone savy outdoor enthusiast. He took and sent us our first drone video of our first ever bamboo rafting trip. Thank you very much! It was a very serene experience and we enjoyed the tranquility of the river and the waterfalls. Wish the trip includes more exploring of the waterfalls and some hiking. Definitely recommend going on this venture with Hamit!

We started early in the morning and were therefore the first to see all the sights and were practically alone. Our guide Bella provided us with extensive information and the driver Cha confidently steered the air-conditioned minivan to the respective destinations. Particularly noteworthy is the trip with the bamboo fins. That was absolutely amazing and worth the price alone. Afterwards there was delicious homemade ice cream with local sweets.
