Khao Sok National Park & South Island Tour
What more could you want after the hustle and bustle of Bangkok than to go trekking in the oldest rainforest in the World and real Porky’s Packers favourite KHAO SOK NATIONAL PARK!! Older than the Amazon, perfectly located on the mainland between Phuket, Krabi, Khao Lak and Koh Samui. A fantastic place to go on your trip where you can stroke elephants, feed them and ride on one’s back whilst they carry you through the jungle. These animals are truly wonderful, our Porky’s Founders did this tour recently and one particular Elephant was moving trees with her trunk for the other Elephants to walk by. If you love animals and the wild, this is one of the main attractions on our Elephant Experience.
Here at Porky’s Packers we also cater for the adventurous. Canoeing, Kayaking and Tubing are some of the wide array of activities that we offer in this part of Thailand. You may have to pinch yourself as it’s like a dream moving past the Karst Limestone Caves and Cliffs. This is a MUST for all adventure driven people. Do all this in the infamous Khao Sok National Park that plays home to extreme Flora and Fauna featuring the following : –
Bamboo Rats, Clouded Leopards, Wild Elephants, Gibbons, Leopards, Tapir, Malaysian Sun Bear, King Cobras, exotic birds and reptiles.
If you go on the Porky’s Night Safari you may be lucky and bump into Tony the Tiger. The only national park in Thailand that these magnificent creatures roam free. So whether it’s Flora and Fauna or an adventure you are after Khao Sok is definitely the place for you.
We will arrange a three day camping adventure where you literally pitch hammocks in the Jungle and this is totally off the beaten track. Become one with nature when our local guide will navigate you through this 450 million year old forest. The sound of birds and the insects will catch your every attention but don’t tread on something you shouldn’t!! Only telling Porkys!!
Another favourite is the Cheow Larn Lake in the heart of the National Park with glistening bath like water where you can literally see your own reflection. So sit back and relax in your floating raft house or luxury tent. An absolute must see and do. Khao Sok can be compared with Krabi Thailand, Guilin National Park China, Halong Bay Vietnam and Sarawak Borneo. These all have similar topography and landscapes. After your three day adventure, camping, sleeping in raft and tree houses this action packed trip with leave you in awe.
After the three days of adventure adrenaline packed trek you will head off to our next destination that is awesome Koh Samui. So, to sooth those tired eyes it’s time to relax for four days on this Paradise Island. With an area of 228 km 2, a population of 63,000 people, 180 km from Khao Sok National Park to the Don Sak Pier where we catch a two hour boat ride to this amazing Island.
Not only does it have natural beauty and resources like coral reefs and amazing marine life it is also home to one the best places in the Country to party with the opportunity to meet fun loving backpackers from all over the Globe. From hippies to students you will meet all walks of life here. Famous for Chaweng Beach with over a thousand nightclubs and bars Porky’s insists on this as the perfect build up to the Full Moon Party Experience also sold on this site.
