Krabi Rainforest Discovery Tour
Within Krabi’s provincial borders, nature rules with an iron fist. Natural pool, stunning
viewing points and an astonishing collection of flora and fauna, this full day tour
options bring out the best why Krabi has been favoured for its scenic landscape.
WHY THIS TOUR?
An outstanding example where nature meets the sea, the Krabi province has a reputation for blending both immaculately into a landscape, worthy of spending a few nights. This cornucopia of landmarks in these lesser-known regions is highlighted in this full day tour, taking guests away from its fabled beaches and tropical islands off its varied coast line.
But nature is not all that brings out the best out of Krabi; culture and religion are so interwoven in the local’s daily lives that elements of this nature are essentials for an introduction of what lies behind the sandy shores and waving palm trees.

You are welcomed by your English speaking guide and designated driver for the day at your hotel. Joining other guests from around the area, the scenic drive to our first stop of the day sets the positive tone for what lies ahead. The famous Wat Tham Sua (Tiger Cave Temple) is one of the most outstanding examples of Buddhism in the whole south. The home of various monks and novices, guests are welcome to take a quick peek into their daily route, against an absolutely smashing side of limestone karsts and green as far as the eye can see. For the latter, one has to climb 1237 steps up to the mountain, from the foothill where the temple is located. The climb may be tough, but the views have award-winning qualities! Wildlife roams freely across the temple grounds such as monkeys for those not eager to make the arduous climb to higher grounds. We move on to the Khaopra – Bangkhram rain forest, a low land region that has gained name and fame for its wonderful collection of rare and indigenous birds. A short walk brings you to natural lagoons, ideal for taking a refreshing dip. The waters in these pools are said to have healing factors due to its mineral-enriched waters. (The Blue Pool is only open from January until April and may be closed without prior notice by National Park officials. Visitors are not allowed to bath in the Blue Pool).
Lunch is included at a local restaurant before commencing the afternoon to the Krabi Hot Springs. A favourite among the Thais, these volcanic springs have known to be beneficial for the skin as its rich-in-saline waters heat up to a constant 42 degrees Celsius. A new means to explore the wonders of Krabi really soaks into your afternoon when you’re taking a dip and feel the benefits of these pools enter your mind and soul. It is time to dry off, get back into the air-conditioned transportation for a drive back to your Krabi resort.
