What people are saying about Cheow Lan Lake

Beautiful, calm nature experience.

If you ever get tired of the beaches this is a must do day-trip. It’s a bit on the expensive side, but if you have the budget for it you’ll get to experience some of the most breathtaking views Thailand has to offer. The limestone cliffs on the Cheow San Lake is worth it on it’s own. We had Ran as our guide, great guy! If we had more time in Khao Sok we would probably spent more time at the lake and done som trekking through the jungles.

Wonderful experience. We spent a lot of time on a longtail boat, got the best views, had some sparkling wine and snacks provided for, took a kayak in the middle of the lake, and returned just before nightfall. In my opinion, the sunset on this tour is the best thing I’ve seen in Thailand. Highly recommend.

Stunning and breath taking views

Our guide (Ran) was an exceptional tour guide. He was so helpful in all aspects that other tourists (not on our trip) were looking to him for help. He made our trip so enjoyable, we can not recommend enough this tour. Worth every penny!

Beautiful excursion perfectly organized

This was a wonderful outing, with a delicious lunch and great guides. Everything was organized perfectly. Many thanks to the guide, the driver, the boat driver and the river cruise guides!
