Lodging will take place in Kanchanaburi, at a high-quality resort (you may pick a simpler, yet more exciting resort in the jungle on the riverbank, which can be only accessed by boat).
This day will be dedicated to more of Kanchanaburi’s wonderful attractions: visiting and bathing in the famous 7-level Erawan waterfalls, the Bridge over Kwai River – where we will take pictures to capture the unforgettable experience, and finally a new local attraction – a reconstructed village from the reign period of King Rama V, where you can observe and experience life in this ancient times, with authentic costumes, rice production, unique cuisines and more.
Lodging will continue in Kanchanaburi
It won’t take us too long to travel to Amphawa, where we will witness and experience the many special attractions the area provides: Amphawa Train Market (“Folding Umbrella Market”) and the “Temple in the tree” (Wat Bang Kung), a private boat cruise to see the famous swimming monkeys, a visit to a local Shell Farm and lunch at a unique setting –a picnic in the middle of the sea. After finishing Amphawa activities, we will settle in a lovely local resort on the river bank for some rest and refreshment before we continue to our special evening activity.
Around 6:30 PM, we will take a short ride to Amphawa Floating Market, and begin our visit by exploring this authentic site by foot. We will absorb the atmosphere, take in the scents and taste some of the delicious local foods, then go through the various stalls and shops, which makes the market extremely popular among locals. Later this evening, once it gets dark, a private boat will take us for a lovely night cruise, to see a unique local phenomenon – a vast number of fireflies filling the tree tops and gracing them with a Christmas-like look and feel. To conclude our nightly visit to Amphawa Floating Market, we have hand-picked for you an excellent Thai restaurant, where we will enjoy rich, delicious Thai cuisines.
**The tour price does not include dinner costs, but our lovely tour guide will be happy to help you pick just the right dishes, so you can fully enjoy the local culinary experience and get to know the authentic and delicious Thai kitchen.
**Lodging will take place in a high-quality resort in Amphawa, on the river bank.
A short drive will take us to a new, lovely setting of a local Animal Rescue Farmdedicated to saving wild animals including bears, monkeys, elephants etc. For me, this Farm Sanctuary is the absolute best in Thailand, since it literally saves lives every day, by rescuing abused and/or abandoned animals and nursing them back to health with dedication and care. After their rehabilitation, the animals are released back to nature. The experience is even more unique since the Animal Rescue Farm contains an exceptional elephants’ hospital, the only one of its kind throughout Thailand. We will partake in the moving experience and help the local staff feed and bathe these wonderful creatures. Then, we will visit many other animals (bears, monkeys, deer and even iguanas) who were fortunate enough to arrive at this haven, and then finish our visit with a nice lunch. Next, a laid-back rafting experience awaits, in the river of Kaeng Krachan National Park (**you may exchange it with other attractions/activities). Afterward, we will travel to the famous resort town of Hua Hin, where we will settle in a 5-star hotel. During the evening, we will visit the local night bazaar or the unique Cicada Market – a great little art fair available on weekends.
**Lodging will take place in a luxury hotel on Hua Hin beach. (Instead, you can choose to stay the night in a lovely resort in one of the nearest pastoral beach towns).
Here you will have a free choice from our excellent day-tours to Hua Hin, with various local activities and attractions such as ATV tours and even Vana Nava Water Park – the most innovative water park in Thailand.
