Itinerary

Day 1: Bangok to Sai Yok National Park
Meet your driver at 8:00 in the lobby of Chamberlain Hostel. We'll depart by minivan to Sai Yok National Park in Kanchanaburi province (about a 4 hour drive.) Sai Yok National Park is part of a huge continuous forest complex called the Western Forest Complex, about 18,730 km², and comprises 19 protected sites in both Myanmar and Thailand.

The mountainous regions of the park are covered with deciduous and dry evergreen forests mixed with bamboo. The lower areas along the Khwae Noi river are teak forest which was deforested during the Japanese occupation of Thailand but later replanted in 1954. Mammal species found in the park include elephants, gibbons, macaques, Malayan porcupines, slow lorises, serow, barking deer, sambar deer, wild boar and many more. There may be a few tigers still roaming the park!

On arrival at the park (the entrance fee of THB$300 per person is not included and is payable on the spot), you will be welcomed by the family who runs the restaurant and floating bungalow. It is time to board your private floating rafts and enjoy a well-deserved local lunch.

Get ready for a real jungle adventure! Your raft will be pulled by a long-tail boat until you reach a quiet curve in the river. Surrounded by nature, you will hear no sound other than the birds singing in the trees and the occasional squabble of monkeys arguing over a juicy,  hanging fruit. We have loaded soft drinks and beers for you on the raft, so just sit back and relax between quick swims in the cool waters.

Meal: Lunch, Dinner
Accommodation: Krit's Floathouse in a Standard Fan Bungalow

Day 2: Sai Yok National Park
After breakfast, the day is free at leisure. We recommend that you board a kayak right from the raft and cruise downstream through the national park. You can book your kayaks the day before and pay Krit's Raft House directly. An unforgettable experience in the middle of the thick jungle far from civilisation!
