Full description
Begin your day tour with a hotel pick-up in Khao Lak between 8:00 AM - 9:00 AM, and depart for the river. Hop on a bamboo raft and float along the waters, relax and enjoy the stunningly beautiful rainforest around you as your raft is pulled by a local boatman. Visit a sea turtle conservation center working to save and increase the number of sea turtles in the region. The Royal Thai Navy plays an active role in turtle conservation and baby turtles are brought to the center, where they are nursed for 6-8 months before being released into the sea. Finish the tour with a trip to Ton Pling Waterfall, the most popular waterfall in the area. Experience the lovely atmosphere and marvel at the amazing environment surrounding you. Swim in the small ponds at the waterfall and just enjoy the relaxing ambiance, before being dropped off back at your hotel.

    great tour It was a bit shorter than stated, but the very nice tour guide didn't rush anywhere or anything like that. It was probably more due to the fact that there were almost no waiting times due to the few tourists. The absolute highlight was the bamboo rifting, which alone is worth the money. The waterfall was beautiful, but you couldn't swim there. Even if the weather had been really nice, I wouldn't know how to swim there. Be sure to wear flip-flops or similar and take clothes that can get wet with you :)

    We started with the turtle sanctuary, the idea behind it is good, the implementation didn't convince me... Especially because some very large/old turtles are kept in a tank that is too small and when we were asked why they are here, the answer was "for a reason.” We believe they are only there for the tourists and it shouldn't be like that. The raft tour was very wet - it rained cats and dogs - nobody can do anything about that. But the rafters/paddlers didn't really feel like it... When the weather is better, it's definitely a lot of fun. Finally we were at the waterfall. Due to the rainy season, it was full, but unfortunately you couldn't go swimming. It was still enough for a few pictures.

    The pick-up at the hotel worked great, the bus was on time and our guide Ran went to a lot of trouble to get us in the mood for the tour. The driver Ming drove us safely and was always in the right place at the right time. Nobody can do anything about the constant rain, which made the tour a little more adventurous
