What to expect

The Khao Sok River really is a sight to behold. Watch it unravel between the rocks as you raft down the river and experience the surroundings from up close on this full day tour. We'll then cap it off with a visit to an elephant sanctuary and the Monkey Cave Temple. Anchali, one of our expert local guides, says, ‘With limestone rocks shrouded in forest and jungle vegetation tangled along the banks, Khao Sok River has to be seen to be believed. Silently drifting through this oasis, you'll hear the wildlife all around us - from a variety of birdlife to lizards, gibbons and even snakes.'

The extraordinary sensation of bamboo rafting through Khao Sok National Park is sure to be a holiday highlight. The rafts are made of natural bamboo, for that authentic touch. Float along the water, stopping to explore a cave. You'll be accompanied by professional paddlers for a true immersion in this unique ecosystem. Anchali says, ‘You are probably going to get wet during the trip due to the nature of the bamboo rafts, so dress comfortably and bring a waterproof bag for your tech.'

After your rafting adventure, we'll move on to the Elephant Care Project. This rewarding experience allows you to spend quality time with retired elephants - without riding them - and participate in ethically sound activities like feeding, walking, and bathing them in the river. After a typical Thai lunch, we'll end the trip with a visit to the Monkey Cave Temple, from where you can enjoy panoramic views over Khao Sok National Park.

Krabi Jungle Tour with Hot Spring and Tiger Cave Temple

A treat for body and spirit, this Krabi rainforest adventure is a winner with an invigorating mix of action and relaxation. You'll take in natural hot springs, the famous Tiger Cave Temple and the fairytale setting of the Emerald Pool. Nawa, one of our expert local guides, says, ‘It might seem like the steps will never end, but the panorama from the top viewpoint at the Tiger Cave Temple are well worth the effort. Wat Tham Suea is the Thai name for the hilltop temple from where you can see right to the coast.'With sensational scenery, historic temples and hot springs to visit, Krabi packs a punch. Kick off with a journey into the Thung Teao Forest to observe Thailand's biodiversity up close. The first stop is Krabi's very own natural hot tub with relaxing thermal waterfalls and pools of warm, mineral-rich water in a lovely forest setting. Nawa adds, ‘Geothermal activity underground heats the water to 42°C. When it reaches the pools at the waterfall, it's around 35° to 40°. The heat and the minerals in the spring water are great for your wellbeing.'Next, you'll walk along a nature trail towards the freshwater Emerald Pool. Bounce into the inviting waters and soak up the sights and sounds of the lowland rainforest. After lunch, admire the view from the lofty Tiger Cave Temple – the region's most famous – where a huge golden Buddha surveys the landscape. Climb the 1,237 steep steps to the top to explore the temple, enjoy the views, and make a wish for good luck.

The Tiger Cave Temple is one of the must-sees while you're in Krabi – so it's only fair that our first stop on this full day explorer tour is this mountaintop shrine. And it doesn't end there, you'll then board a longtail boat to glide down the River Krabi for lunch and visit Ko Klang, a traditional fishing village just a stone's-throw away.High up into the hills, and you'll be surrounded by stunning scenery and the secluded Tiger Cave Temple, or Wat Tham Sua. Spot the tiger paw prints inside the cave and climb the summit for top-notch views over the island. Then it's back down to sea level, towards Krabi town.But before we get there, you'll stop at the black crab sculpture for a photo opportunity of the dramatic Khao Khanab Nam Mountains. Board a longtail boat for a cruise down River Krabi and have lunch at a local restaurant. Last but not least, we'll visit Ko Klang, a traditional fishing village just outside Krabi town.
