Day by Day Itinerary :
Date 1 : Bangkok - Khao Laem National Park
From the busy streets of Bangkok to the beautiful calm of Lake Khao Laem
Day one of your Lake Safari Thailand tour takes you from your hotel in Bangkok to Lake Khao Laem in the northwest of central Thailand. On the way, an English-speaking guide introduces you to the history and culture of Kanchanaburi – Thailand’s largest central province. Complete with a delicious Thai dinner the trip promises to give you a memorable first taste of authentic Thailand. Next, a visit of the world-famous River Kwai Bridge takes you back through Thailand's history. Finally, you arrive at the Lake Safari Thailand houseboat during the afternoon and embark on an unforgettable 4-day journey towards Sangklaburi.
Date 2 : Khao Laem National Park
Relax: Past floating villages and impressive scenery to coconut and cocoa
As the cruise begins, the Lake Safari Thailand houseboat is pulled past a traditional Mon fishing village built entirely on floating rafts.
The mantra of the day is “relax, relax, relax” and our houseboat is the perfect place to do just that. Enjoy the privacy and stillness of the lake as you drift past the unspoilt scenery of Khao Laem National Park.
An afternoon excursion takes you to Coconut Island where Mon people still live the traditional life of their ancestors, cultivating coconut and cocoa plants.
Date 3 : - Sangklaburi
Adventure: Into caves, through the jungle, down the river and back
Forget “relax”. Lake Safari Thailand day three is Adventure-Day.
It begins with a canoe tour to a few small caves inhabited by hundreds of bats. Later, a long-tail boat takes you to a village of the Karen, one of the many Thai hill tribes. From here, you continue into the jungles on the back of an elephant.
Finally, there is just one thing that tops elephant trekking: bamboo rafting. This exciting balancing-act is sure to satisfy any adventurer’s desires.
Date 4 : Sangklaburi - Bangkok
Sightseeing in Sangklaburi - on the border between Thailand and Burma
Drift lazily through the final day of the Lake Safari towards the destination of the tour: Sangklaburi on the northern shore of Lake Khao Laem.
Located close to Thailand’s border with Burma, Sanklaburi is shared by a variety of ethnic groups all of which have shaped the city’s history.
The town has to offer a number of interesting sights: The Three Pagodas mark the historical border between Thailand and Burma, while the Wang Wikekaram temple combines Indian, Burmese and Thai architecture. Thailand’s longest wooden bridge, the Mon Bridge, links modern Sangklaburi with traditional Mon villages.
