Highlights

With fairy-tale scenery of towering limestone cliffs and over 100 islands jutting skyward, Khao Sok Lake Cheow Lan is one of the most beautiful places on earth not too far from home.  Start the day with a drive from Khao Sok to a colorful local market.  Then cruise the lake in a traditional longtail boat. Swim in emerald green water.  We will kayak around the lake, hike the park, or hang around in the raft houses to relax and swim.
