If you’re looking to discover more of Thailand than the average person, one of the best things to do in Phuket is right at your fingertips. Embark on the adventure of a lifetime and break away from the typical tourist route. Instead, become one with nature as you take the road less travelled, leading you to the ethereal beauty of Khao Sok. The 2 days 1 night Khao Sok experience whisks you away on a charming adventure to Khao Sok National Park, where you’ll feel all your worries melt away and forget about the real world. Simply float around on a bamboo raft, watch the mist roll in over the mountains, and relax in the comfort of your wonderful floating house bungalow. The picturesque surroundings of the stunning Ratchaprapa Dam will draw you in and make you feel like you never want to leave.The first day starts off with a scenic journey from Phuket towards Khao Sok, passing over the famous Sarasin Bridge and making your way through Khao Lak – make sure to take in the wonderful scenery along the way, as Khao Lak exhibits some of the finest nature in Thailand and serves as a reminder of the resilience of Thai communities following the devastation caused by the deadly tsunami years ago.Before you know it, find yourself in the awe-inspiring forest of Surat Thani Province’s Khao Sok National Park, where you get to interact with Thai elephants in the gorgeous nature of the national park. Enjoy the exciting experience of elephant bathing, interacting with these gentle giants and seeing first-hand how special they are. The rest of the day is filled with wondrous exploration, involving a tasty lunch at the charming Khao Sok Discovery riverside restaurant, Cheow Lan lake exploration by long-tail boat, and eventually reaching your idyllic accommodation at the Raft House – a floating house overlooking the emerald waters of Cheow Lan Lake. Here, you are presented with your own piece of paradise to be enjoyed for the rest of the afternoon. Whether you decide to explore the surroundings or simply sit back and relax is completely up to you. Wake up bright and early in the middle of paradise on your second day to truly experience the charming atmosphere of Khao Sok National Park at dawn. With the early morning mist rolling on over the mountains in the distance, the scenery all round creates picture-perfect views. Following breakfast, the adventure continues with more intrepid bamboo rafting – explore the impressive caves and nature surrounding  Ratchaprapa Dam, including the striking stalagmites and stalactites of Nam Talu Cave. Bask in the verdant beauty and keep your eyes peeled for wildlife sightings, as Khao Sok National Park is known to contain a vast number of natural species. After two fun-filled days in Mother Nature’s playground, you’ll feel refreshed and invigorated knowing you’ve seen one of Thailand’s true hidden gems.
