However, the rafts are very strong and stable so there is nothing to be afraid of. For those who want exciting rafting they can go to Kaeng Bok Fai, Kaeng Haew Bua Thong, Kaeng Haew Ta Wan, Kaeng Kuen Nam Won, Kaeng Hua Kalok, and Kaeng Hin Karng, which is around eleven kilometers long. Tourists who come to Pa Toh forest can stay at accommodation in the forest or home stay with the villagers such as at Baan Klong Rue Homestay, which was chosen by the Tourist Organization of Thailand to be one of the quality standards for home stay.
