Tour Itinerary & Description
The epic coastline of Chumphon province remains mostly off the mainstream tourist radar. Yet the endless beaches, marine reserves, mangrove forests and rivers offer some of the most spectacular coastal scenery in Thailand. This one day kayaking tour offers a unique experience to enjoy some beautiful scenery and untainted culture away from the tourist crowds.
Picked up from your hotel in Chumphon at 08:30 we take a 30-45 minute minibus ride north of Chumphon to Thamm Tong – a pristine beach which is the starting point for the kayaking tour.
We’ll have a briefing giving on overview of the day, plus go through a few kayaking basics. Then it’s time to take to the water.
During the morning we’ll explore attractions in the surrounding area. You’ll get to observe the local flora and fauna and see some striking rock formations. Points of interest we’ll be visiting include a site we call ‘The Cellar’, a lagoon, canyon, exploring or a river mouth & mangroves and passing traditional Thai fishing settlements.
We make our way back to the beach for lunch where we’ll relax and enjoy a picnic, (and you can take a swim if you want).
Then during the afternoon we head eastward, making our way to an impressive cave which has been adopted as a Buddhist temple. Buddhism is still actively practiced in the cave-temple so with fortunate timing it’s possible that you’ll hear chants of Buddhist monks echoing through the cave.
Then we’ll make our way to a nearby waterfall where we’ll have a chance to relax and cool off.
Finally we return to Chumphon by minibus, where you’ll be dropped back at your hotel around 17:00.
