Authentic Southern Thailand

Tour Description: Guided

The pristine beaches and stunning limestone scenery of southern Thailand have made it a favorite backdrop for Hollywood movies, such as “The Beach” and of course James Bond's “Man with the Golden Gun” and you’ll feel like you are on a movie set riding through this gorgeous landscape.

Southern Thailand has more to offer than turquoise waters, white sand and lush jungles - it’s also home to a fascinating mixture of cultures. Thai Buddhists mingle with Muslim seafarers to produce a colorful people steeped in history and tradition. Priding themselves on their openness and hospitality, the people of the south, or Khon Dai, are always ready to show farang (foreigners) their country.

Our tour starts on the Gulf of Thailand, at a pristine beach that is off the tourist track. We then head inland and spend time on a stunning lake and ride on the edge of Khao Sok National Park - home to the last of Thailand's great rainforests - before we head to the beaches on the Andaman Sea. From Khao Lak we'll head to the paradise island of Koh Yao Noi where you'll spend time with a local fishing family.

As we boat through Phang Nga Bay towards Krabi be awed by the spectacular limestone cliffs rising vertically from the sea. Though we ride through the world class tourist destinations of Khao Lak and Krabi, we also leave behind the tourist enclaves and see a Southern Thailand that is a rarely visited gem to be discovered.

The minimum age for this tour is 18.

A note about weather: Southern Thailand has a tropical climate with fairly high humidity. There are three seasons: from March to June it is hot and dry, with temperatures between 27C/ 80F and 35C/95F and, with night temperatures in the 20s.

The rainy season is from July to October, but temperatures are slightly lower, because of the effect of the rain. During this time it will not rain continuously, but in sharp bursts, and the sun can come out quickly.
