Fisherman’s Village is within walking distance of your hotel with plenty of shops restaurants and bars, or the more lively Chaweng is around 10 minutes taxi ride away.

Day 6 - Khao Sok National Park

It’s an early start today to begin the 3 day Jungle Lake Safari adventure to Khao Sok National Park. Take a ferry across the tropical waters of the Gulf of Thailand to the mainland where your guide from Elephant Hills will drive you through the interior to Khao Sok National Park. The park offers a beautiful landscape of towering Limestone mountains jutting out of the forest canopy with tranquil lakes and unique wildlife.

One of the highlights of your 3 day jungle experience will be interacting with the majestic elephants at Elephant Hills. Watch them enjoy a bath in a big mud pool, then scrub them clean again, before preparing and giving them their feed. You will spend a night at Elephant Camp immersed in the jungle and the second night at the unique floating Rainforest Camp on Cheow Larn Lake.

Leave the jungle behind as you head for Khao Lak on the Andaman Sea for a three night stay.
