Southern Thailand offers a great variety of activities, must-see places and insights into the local traditions and history. During these three days, you will get to see the beautiful Lotus Lagoon, agricultural farm, local villages, temples, caves, handicraft community, stunning viewpoints and much more, including traditional Thai restaurants, small road-side fruit stalls, and experience true Thai hospitality away from the buzzing tourist destinations. A guide will be with you during the entire 3 days and 2 nights, providing you with all the insightful information and historic backgrounds.
This adventure starts in Krabi where you get to explore the Emerald Pool and the surrounding national park. On the way to Nakhon Si Thammarat province, we will stop at a 120-acre farm that follows the teachings of King Rama 9, grows various types of vegetables, fruits and raises animals. Upon reaching Nakhaon Si Thammarat, our first steps will lead to Khiriwong Village, a peaceful community of farmers and craftsmen that has the highest ozone level in Thailand. They produce plenty of various fresh fruits, which you can of course try, and you will also get the chance to learn how to make mangosteen soap and use the Batik technique. Visit the main temple of the province called Wat Phra Mahathat, a famous nielloware handicraft group and the awarded Suchart Sapsin Museum which are a must-see of this province.
The last part of the trip takes you to Phattalung province, starting with an excursion at Varni Handicraft, a community enterprise group that helps the locals reduce poverty, unemployment and gender inequality in the area. Next on the lists are the largest lagoon lake in Thailand and wetlands that are home to thousands of bird species and the famous royal lotus. Back to the mainland to explore huge caves with its stalactites and stalagmites, which were found over 30 years ago, and get back on the road. Before we reach your accommodation back in Krabi, we will visit Wat Klong Thom Museum which provides great insights into the history of Krabi.
