We will start our day by sailing in a canoe cruise, led by an experienced sailor who will do the rowing, so you can lay back and fully enjoy the natural beauty and serenity that surrounds you.

Then, we will head to a nearby natural reserve where you can either take an elephant ride or go on an ATV field-trip, which will be followed by today’s highlight – the best white-water rafting available in Thailand.

A short, customized rafting route will be available to kids older than 5 years, and a slightly longer route will satisfy 10-year-olds and above. If you are in for it – the site also features a special, extreme slide which will take you (brave ones) flying into the small lake. At the end of the activity, we will drive to Ao Nang beach in Krabi, where we will check in to one of the best hotels in the area.

♦ Feel free to enjoy a free night out in Ao Nang, with its various restaurants, shops, massage parlors etc.

A short drive from Amphawa will take us to a new, lovely setting of a local Animal Rescue Farm  dedicated 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 on site. After saying goodbye to the lovely animals, you can pick one of two options: take a cable car up to Khao Wang (“the Palace on the Hill”), to explore the past lives of ancient Thai Kings and enjoy the beautiful scenery as seen from the hill, or enjoy a lovely walk along the shore of Cha Am beach resort town, and pedal comfortably in family bicycle (with 2, 3 and even 4 seats). Afterwards, we will invite you for coffee, ice cream and snacks, in one of the lovely coffee shops along the beach. At the end of our daily activity, we will settle in a 5-star hotel at Hua Hin. During the evening, we will visit the famous local night bazaar or the unique Cicada Market – a great little art fair available on weekends.

We will start off our day with a short ride to Amphawa, where we will witness and experience the many special attractions the area provides: palm-sugar production and Thai house, Amphawa Train Market (“Folding Umbrella Market”) and the “Temple in the tree” (Wat Bang Kung). Next, a private boat will take us to see the unusual phenomenon of swimming monkeys, an experience which will be followed by a visit to a local Shell Farm. Then, we will enjoy our lunch at a unique setting –a picnic in the middle of the sea. After finishing Amphawa activities, we will comfortably settle in one of the best resorts for some relaxation and refreshment.

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 make 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.
