  • Day 4 - Phuket

    Sightseeing

    This morning, embark on an incredible full day journey to explore surreal Phang Nga Bay, North of Phuket Island, in a most natural and serene way (small group join-in tour). Enjoy exploring islands by private boat and paddle sea kayaks amongst the limestone islands and caves the area is famous for.


    The geology of this area is legendary – massive limestone towers rise ominously from smooth, emerald-green seas. However, the best part is hidden from the casual tourist. Hidden rooms (hongs), accessible only through narrow tidal caves, can be found inside many of these stacks. With their open-air tops and vertical, jungle enshrouded walls, they are an extraordinary geological feature. Many of these hongs were not discovered until the early 1990's. Through the efforts of our sea canoe staff, they have been maintained in a pristine state so that their exquisite natural beauty and abundant wildlife (birds and monkeys) can be enjoyed by the intrepid explorer. These unique formations also harbor beautiful, hidden, white-sand beaches and colorful coral reefs.

    Sightseeing

    This morning, after breakfast, meet your guide and depart on a full-day exploration of the city. First travel on the River of Kings for a visit to the Pak Klong Dalat Flower Market. Then continue to the Grand Palace, where an English governess tutored a young prince and may have influenced his powerful father. (The Thais have enormous reverence for their royal family, and both versions of The King and I are banned as an insult to one of their great rulers.) The highlight of this mind-and-eye boggling spectacle is the Temple of the Emerald Buddha, the most revered shrine in the Kingdom.

    Sightseeing

    Spend the afternoon exploring this exotic Eastern City by river taxi, longtail and rocket boats, along the great river and back canals of Thonburi where old Siam still survives. Imagine a child leading a mud-encrusted buffalo past a shimmering green sea of new rice, only a short distance from the gleaming skyscrapers and the bustle and boom of the early 21st century.

    Sightseeing

    Finish the day with a walk around Chinatown including Wat Traimit, the Gold Buddha Temple, and Pak Klong Dalat Produce Market selling mountains of flowers and vegetables.
