Start the tour at 9 AM with pick up from your hotel. Travel to the National Park and relax on the sandy beach and beautiful rocky beach. Walk up to the viewpoint at the lighthouse for incredible photo opportunities. At 10:30 AM, head into the Lanta's Old Town for a sightseeing tour. Admire the 100-year-old Chinese wooden houses and enjoy time for shopping. Stop for a delicious set lunch in a local restaurant.  After lunch (at around 1:15 PM), continue the tour at the Lanta Animal Welfare Center which is full of local rescue dogs, puppies, cats, and kittens waiting patiently to welcome you. Brighten their days by petting them and giving them love, affection, and exercise. Hang out with the cats and kittens in the new Kitty Café where you can also purchase drinks and delicious food. Next, receive a behind-the-scenes tour from the staff and learn more about the welfare center. Then, if you are an experienced adult dog walker, you can also help give the many rescue dogs their daily exercise on the beach. Say goodbye to your new friends and transfer back to your hotel at 4 PM.

We had a nice transport and a good guide. In the final leg of animal welfive, the guide told us that we will be picked up in 45 minutes. It was only then that they were able to jog with the dogs. Fortunately, we saw the driver and he waited. I recommend carrying a waterproof bag / rucksack in the event of a downpour
