We have just come back from a 2 week holiday around Thailand and we have had the best time! The whole trip was amazing and so well organised by Jack at Blank Canvas, it exceeded all expectations!
Khao Sok & Khao Lak: Elephants, Jungle & Beach
Day 1 - Overnight Flight
The day is here! You'll head off an overnight flight to the Land of Smiles.
Day 2 - Khao Sok
Welcome to paradise! Upon arrival you'll be welcomed to Thailand and escorted deep into Khao Sok national park, one of the oldest rainforests in the world.
You'll be staying in an authentic local lodge complete with bamboo bungalows.
Day 3 - Khao Sok
This is a very special day as you spend ethical time with Asia's beautiful Elephants. These gorgeous giants are natural to this area. You'll walk with and perhaps feed/bathe orphaned and former working elephants at the reserve.
There is no riding as is strict Blank Canvas policy. We want this experience to be beneficial for our clients, and the elephants involved
Day 4 - Khao Sok
A full day at leisure in Khao Sok. You could head out on a wildlife hike or spend more time with elephants. The are is also famous for river rafting, a fun activity that combines adventure with an excellent opportunity to spot wildlife.
Day 5 - Khao Lak
From the jungle to the beach! Your guide will be on hand to escort you the short journey to your beachfront resort in the beautiful area known as Khao Lak, on Thailand's glittering west coast.
Day 6 - Khao Lak
Khao Lak is the perfect combination of relaxation and exploration.
Being part of the mainland means you can easily head out to local communities, traditional villages or hike/bike to cascading waterfalls.
Day 7 - Khao Lak
One of the very best things to do here is take a day trip out to the famous Similan islands.
This uninhabited archipelago is a marine lovers paradise, with of the best diving and snorkelling found anywhere in southern Thailand.
Day 8 - Khao Lak
Another day at leisure to relax and chill out at beachfront boutique resort.
Day 9 - Khao Lak
While here, we recommend heading into Khao Lak town.
The main area is dotted with lively bars and restaurants, yet unlike neighbouring Phuket it's much more lowkey here, suiting those who want a relaxing break with the option to dine around.
Day 10 - Khao Lak
There's so much we can arrange for you to do while here. A client favourite is to head out on a boat trip to James Bond island and the limestone karsts of Phang Nga bay.
You'll head out by speedboat to snorkel, experience desert islands, and enjoy a Thai BBQ right on the beach.
Day 11 - Khao Lak
Your last day to relax on the beach in atmospheric Khao Lak. Enjoy sunset from the west facing beach with an ice cold drink.
You can find restaurant recommendations for a special last night on your Blank Canvas app.
Day 12 - Overnight Flight
You'll likely have most of the day at leisure before being transferred to the airport for your flight home.
