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.

It was a great day, I enjoy every activities. The bus was not too long like some trips this day. Our guide was really kind and teach us lot of things I recommend you this trip because there are not too much tourists who go there. So it is very agreable.

Very nice private tour for our family (children age 9 and 11). We went January 2nd and I was surprised that it was never crowded in any of the places we visited. The bamboo rafting was the highlight. Very fun and exciting to glide through the jungle on the rafts. We even got to see a snake above us in a tree! Lovely to take a swim in the clear river. The Thai food at the restaurant by the rafts was delicious. The turtles were cute and fun to see. The children also thought it was very exciting to swim by the beautiful waterfall. Especially as there were big (friendly) fishes keeping them company. The guide, Sun, and the driver were friendly and professional. Can highly recommend the tour!

Great day with our guide Hassan and the serious driver and full of explanations about the turtles, the tsunami: it interested our children from 4 to 16 years old, I recommend +++ the raft ride with tastings and wilder khao lak and less touristic is really to discover! Our guide advised us the restaurant with an exceptional view and on a low budget, delicious Nern Khao View Talay +++ Exotic holidays for the family!
