This 10-day Thailand vacation takes you to some of the nation’s less-visited natural highlights, including Hua Hin, Kui Buri, and Khao Sok. It features first-class accommodations and a mix of private and shared tours.

Your Thai vacation begins in the capital, Bangkok, where you’ll transfer to the famous beach town, Hua Hin, known for its beautiful shoreline and surrounding natural landscapes. Based in Hua Hin, you’ll head on a tour into Sam Roi Yot National Park to visit a pineapple plantation, swing by the fishing village of Bang Pu, and delve into Phraya Nakhon Cave, all before spending the afternoon on a pristine beach for swimming and relaxation. The next day, turn towards Kui Buri and visit the community village to learn about the local sustainable economy. In Kui Buri National Park, you’ll also have a chance to spot exotic wildlife, including tapirs and elephants.

Continue onwards and learn about coffee growing and roasting in the Gong Valley before reaching the town of Ranong, along the shores of the Andaman Sea. A city tour will take you to Baan Taen Sue, the Governor’s House, and the lighthouse on Andaman Pier as well as introduce you to the unique Chinese culture of the region as well as key historical events. Another day, disembark from Klong Lad Nod Pier for a boat cruise through a mangrove forest and plant some mangroves for yourself. After lunch, float down the river on a bamboo raft and visit local villages and see endemic animals at the coastal aquaculture centre.

Continue into Sri Phang Nga National Park to explore the famous landscape of evergreens, waterfalls, and limestone cliffs and have a good chance to spot some exotic birds, including a variety of kingfishers. Reach Khao Sok and ride along Chiew-Larn Lake to reach your floating resort. In Khao Sok, you’ll enjoy a morning safari out onto the waters of the mist-draped lake, venture into Prakarang Coral Cave, and explore the surrounding forest. You’ll also have plenty of leisure time at your resort.

Close out your time in Thailand with a long-tail boat ride through the limestone karsts before connecting to your chosen destination for onward travels.
