What people are saying about Southern Thailand and Andaman Coast

I loved everything about this trip and it was such a breath-taking place to visit. The van that picked us up was comfortable, the boat ride was super scenic, we had staff attending to our needs, the guide was super knowledgeable about caves, lunch was delicious and the resort 500Rai was just so relaxing. I really enjoyed the trek and soon after jumping into the cool emerald water for a swim. This was the highlight of our Khao Lak trip.

I really recommend this activity for a day in the national park! This is the opportunity to take advantage of it to 1000% through many activities: trekking in the jungle, bamboo rafting to visit a cave, boat to discover the park, swimming pool also to relax at the end of the day and canoe if we want it. We had a great guide Miss Pooky, who made us enjoy a great day! Thanks again !

Nice tour to get an overview of Koh Lanta. Beaches, national park, Lanta Old Town ... everything included. Cool, funny guide who could tell a lot about the island and Thailand.

Wonderful tour guide, fantastic views, comfortable car journey and great stops at the main landmarks in Krabi- would definitely recommend.

Had an amazing time! Khao sok is beautiful, 500rai is stunning and we also really enjoyed the trek to Coral cave.
