Your adventure starts with a drive up to the Khao Sok national park. Khao Sok in Surat Thani province is the largest rainforest in southern Thailand. The jungles here outdate the Amazon rainforest, and are even more diverse.

Bamboo rafts have been used to transport people and goods along the rivers here for centuries. As you glide gently downstream, you will be amazed by the breath-taking natural beauty of the Sok river. The cliffs that rise up on either side form a stunning backdrop, while birds and other animals can be spotted regularly.

Once your raft comes to rest on one of the sandy banks, there is plenty of time to enjoy the views and refresh yourself with some “jungle coffee” brewed in a piece of bamboo.

From the river, it is just a short walk through the cave to the other side of the cliffs. The caves here are part of an ancient temple. Our guide will show you around and explain the central role the temples traditionally played in the local culture.

Travel with local people

In the morning, Mr Yoo will guide you on a walking safari as the early morning mist rises from the jungle covered mountains.

This is the time of day where you are most likely to see some of the exotic wildlife that
the Khao Sok national park is famous for.

The walk takes you through lush rainforest and past picturesque jungle streams.

After breakfast and a final farewell to Mr. Yoo and his family, it is time to head to your next destination.

From Khao Sok to Baan Nam Khem pier it is about a 1-hour drive. Here one of the local ferry men will be waiting to take you across to the beautiful island of Koh Kho Khao.

Koh Kho Khao is a true hidden gem in the Andaman Sea, with friendly people, sweeping grasslands and some of the most beautiful beaches in Thailand. Your hosts on the island are Nong and Saii, the friendly owners of Hapla Beach Resort.

Hapla Beach provides basic, barefoot luxury. The traditional styled bungalows are right on the beach. Saii and Nong are two of the friendliest people in the world. Sunset cocktails on the beach are the perfect way to end the day and are not to be missed!

A Luxurious Climax

Koh Kho Khao has a rich history dating back over 3,000 years. The island was a key stopping point and trading centre on the ‘Maritime Silk Route’. Precious stones, spices, jewels and handicrafts from all over the world came through this quiet corner of the Andaman Sea.

When the time comes to say goodbye and head back to the mainland, our driver will be waiting for you at Baan Nam Khem Pier.

Panwa Cape is at the southern tip of Phuket island. Set apart from the busier areas of the island, the Mooring Resort is a luxurious climax to your trip. The modern and tastefully decorated rooms are laid out on the hillside overlooking a beautiful beach. Several smaller islands are clearly visible as you gaze out to sea or relax in the generously sized pool.

There are several fantastic restaurants nearby, and for those who are missing the hustle and bustle the shopping areas, the old town and the Phuket party areas are just a short taxi ride away.

Discover southern Thailand’s hidden corners with your very own personal adventure

After stopping for lunch, it is just a short drive to meet Mr. Yoo and his family at their house on the edge of the rainforest. After a very warm welcome, the family will show you around their home.

As you walk around, Mr. Yoo will help you harvest fruits, vegetables and herbs from his organic gardens on the edge of the jungle. He will explain their traditional and modern day uses.

Once you have collected everything you need, it is time to help the family prepare dinner. Everybody joins in while Mr. Yoo and his family help you prepare a delicious Thai feast using traditional local methods, and ingredients.

Your first night will be spent at one with nature, in a hand-built bamboo cabin on the edge of the jungle. Bamboo has been a traditional building material around the world for thousands of years. It is the oldest and fastest growing grass in the world, making a truly sustainable resource.

The cabins are designed to be cool and comfortable. With mosquito nets to ensure you get a peaceful night’s sleep. Each cabin is equipped with a fan, an en-suite toilet and shower room for your comfort and
convenience.

Heidden gems of the Andaman Sea

Extend your adventure and experience island life first hand. Jump on a local long-tail boat with Nong and Saii to explore Koh Kho Khao and the neighbouring islands of Koh Pra Thong and Koh Pling.

These stunning islands are all but untouched by the usual tourist trails. Many of the people living on these islands are descended from the ancient coastal communities and sea gypsies. Life on the islands goes at its own pace.

Enjoy the best of what this hidden paradise has to offer. Once you see the stunning golden beaches, you won’t want to leave. Depending on the tides and weather conditions, it is sometimes possible to snorkel or join the locals collecting shellfish.

Nong, Saii and their team love to share their home and traditions with visitors. One of the highlights of the day is a delicious Robinson Crusoe style barbeque on the beach before heading back to the resort.

After a night with the waves lapping softly at the shore, it is time to see a bit more of the island.

You can choose to either explore the mangrove forests on the eastern side of the island by kayak with some of the local villagers. Or join Nong for a drive around the island in his traditional local style taxi.
