Super nice trip with lots of nature. First a beautiful hike through the national park, followed by the best food I've ever had on a trip. At the end there is a nice canoe tour including a coffee break (made of bamboo cups) directly on the river. Our guide took a lot of time for us and showed us many other highlights.

Car to pick up is very punctual Entry into National Park was smooth Our English speaking guide, Meow, was good in explaining highlights of the Cheow Larn Lake. We enjoyed immensely at 500 Rai resort: kayaking, swimming and lunch was delicious and plentiful.

This was the most awesome experience ever, rafting in the Thailand jungle, bathing elephants, authentic local food, markets for food and fresh ingredients, viewpoints, all around amazing
