Khao Lak Tours
Khao Lak is a beautiful place with many different attractions to see both on land and at sea. The Khao Lak tour menu with Green Andaman Travel covers all possible types of tour, from the once in a lifetime experience of Elephant Trekking through the jungle, to seeing old Thai architecture off the beaten track in Takuapa Old Town.
If you would like to continue your Golfing or Fishing hobby in Khao Lak then this is also possible; Tab Lamu Golf Course is beautifully located between the Khao Lak Mountains and the Andaman Sea. Talking of the Andaman Sea, this is where you can travel on a traditional Thai longtail boat to fish for exotic seafood for dinner.
Snorkelling just off the coast near Khao Lak is another option; here lies some beautiful underwater scenery, not more than 45 minutes away from your hotel. For the more adventurous, there is also the opportunity to White Water raft in Khao Lak too – a fantastic location for an exhilarating ride!
Khao Sok Tours
If you take one tour while you are in Khao Lak we strongly recommend a trip to Khao Sok National Park. Green Andaman Travel has a selection of different itineraries for Khao Sok, all highlighting different areas of interest and activities for you to choose from. It is possible to visit Khao Sok in one day and we also offer 2 day trip itineraries too.
Khao Sok Rafting Expedition is a relaxing day gently floating down the Sok River on a Bamboo raft and Elephant Trekking in the afternoon. Khao Sok Lake Explorer is the second day trip available, encompassing both rafting along Sok River in the morning and a longtail boat ride through the majestic Cheow Lan Lake in the afternoon. Khao Sok day trips are suitable for those who are short of time, but would still like to visit our famous National Park.
Green Andaman Travel offer 3 overnight itineraries; the first is a 2 day 1 night tour, Khao Sok Jungle Expedition. This tour takes in all aspects from the Rafting Expedition trip with accommodation in a tree house bungalow overnight. On the second day there is a chance to see more sights of the jungle with an educational walk through the rainforest to learn more about the amazing Khao Sok before heading back to your resort in Khao Lak.
The second overnight trip is also a 2 day 1 night excursion, Khao Sok Lake Expedition. This tour focuses more on the fantastic Cheow Lan Lake with accommodation in a floating bamboo hut on the water. On this trip bamboo rafting and elephant trekking are available and a night safari on a traditional Thai Longtail boat is also included.
The third overnight trip is a 3 day 2 night trip, Khao Sok Jungle and Lake Exploration, taking in all aspects of Khao Sok National Park. Everything is included in this trip from jungle trekking to bamboo rafting; on this adventure you get the chance to stay one night in a tree house and one night on a floating bamboo raft on Cheow Lan Lake – 2 very unique sleeping experiences! This trip is recommended for everyone.
As with all of Green Andaman Travel tours, itineraries are flexible. If you wish to change one activity for another please let us know.
This season Green Andaman Travel are introducing a new and exclusive trip combining land excursions in Khao Sok National Park with diving in Cheow Lan Lake. This trip is perfect for those looking to explore all areas of Khao Sok above and below the water’s surface. Take a look at the Khao Sok Lake DIving page for more information.
Another tour that we recommend is with Thailand Kayak. This is an exclusive trip using professional Kayaks on Cheow Lan Lake, taking you even closer to nature and Khao Sok National Park. For bookings and enquiries about this trip please contact us.
Phang Nga Tours
Phang Nga is one of Thailand’s 76 provinces and is the one in which Khao Lak lies. Green Andaman Travel has a couple of tours to see the highlights of this beautiful area of Thailand and both include a visit to Phang Nga town, the provincial capital.
Phang Nga Bay and James Bond Island are a must see if you are visiting Southern Thailand. The Bay is a beautiful landscape of dramatic limestone cliffs reaching up from the sea and small islands dotted around. On this tour we visit James Bond Island and a local Sea Gypsy village built on stilts – this is a great tour for those wanting to experience a mixture of the nature and culture that Thailand has to offer.
The second tour that Green Andaman Travel offers to Phang Nga is the Amazing Three Temple Tour. This is a tour for those wanting to see some Thai culture and learn more about the main religion of this country.
There is plenty of choice around Khao Lak for Culture Vultures. Thailand is rich with art, culture and history; all of which you will see on the Takuapa Cultural and Historical Tour and the Amazing Three Temples Tour. The Phang Nga Bay and James Bond Island Tour is good for those interested in other people’s cultures, as on this trip you will get to see a community living in a village built on stilts. Both the Phuket Sightseeing and Phuket Sightseeing and Fantasea Show tours will take you to Chalong Temple in the south of Phuket. The Additional Fantasea Show in the second trip is a cultural experience in itself!
Snorkelling and Diving Tours
Green Andaman Travel has three snorkel tours available: Khao Na Yak Snorkelling and the Similan Islands and Tachai Island Snorkelling Trips; all are a great day out for different reasons. Khao Na Yak is a half day trip and close by, this means that there is less travelling time and still time to relax at your resort in the afternoon. It is also a relatively quiet destination, so will not be as crowded as other snorkel spots. The Similan Islands are of course very famous, attracting people from all over the world to see the beautiful corals and sea life located here. Koh Tachai offers one of the best snorkelling spots in the area, with beautiful white sandy beaches and crystal clear waters. The Similan Island and Koh Tachai trips are recommended for those wanting to see the Similan Island National Marine Park, but are short of time and do not wish to do an overnight trip.
The Similan Islands are one of the main attractions for people visiting Khao Lak, however, due to the ever growing popularity of this Marine National Park the waters and beaches are often quite crowded. Green Andaman Travel recommends a couple of Dive Operators based here in Khao Lak, offering Similan Island day trips and live aboards but also a variety of arguably better alternatives too.
For a flexible diving trip Green Andaman Travel recommends Similan Seven Sea Club; as well as the standard Similan Islands trips they have a large variety of tour options including Koh Bon, Koh Tachai and Richelieu Rock.
For a personal and tailored dive trip Green Andaman Travel recommends Thailand Dive and Sail. This seasoned team of divers adapt tours to the individual diver, with suggested tour options suitable to all experience levels.
We have also teamed up with Thailand Dive and Sail for a new trip to Cheow Lan Lake in Khao Sok for an overnight Lake Diving and Jungle Trekking Tour.
Sunai, or simply know as “Nai”, is the owner of Green Andaman Travel and has some top recommendations for you. His number one recommendation is a trip to Khao Sok National Park.
The Khao Sok Jungle and Lake Exploration trip is a ‘must do’; it includes all activities in Khao Sok, all of which are fascinating and exciting in their own ways. The jungle is rich with nature and interesting animals and the lake is a relaxing place to spend a night and a beautiful calm place to wake up in.
The Local Fishing Trip and Golfing in Khao Lak are two of Sunai’s favourite pastimes, so they have to be included here too. Golfing between the mountains and the Andaman Sea is a must for any golfers visiting the area.
Finally Khao Sok Rafting Expedition: this tour is an exclusive to Green Andaman Travel, only with this tour company will you get the opportunity to have coffee on the river bank made in bamboo and served in a bamboo cup!
Phuket is one of Thailand’s most famous tourist destinations; if you are visiting Khao Lak for a couple of weeks why not spend a day on this island on one of our custom made tours which select only the highlights of this neighbouring island.
On the Phuket Sightseeing Tour you will get the chance to visit some of the islands most interesting sights, including Chalong Temple, a visit to a cashew nut factory and to Phuket Town to look at the beautiful Sino Portuguese Architecture.
The Phuket Sightseeing and Fantasea Tour includes the best bits from the Sightseeing tour and gives you the opportunity to see the intriguing Fantasea show in the evening – this is a great day out for people of all ages.
