Khao Sok National Park
If you plan on being in Phuket before your Khao Sok trip, we will pick you up at prearranged times from either your hotel or the Phuket International Airport. Transfers from anywhere on Phuket are included in the trip price. Khao Lak is not on the way to Khao Sok. We cannot offer transfers to or from Khao Lak. Surat Thani transfers are not possible either.
Khao Sok is under a three-hour drive from Phuket.
Once we arrive at the dam, we board a longtail motorboat to get even more remote. It's a bit over an hour by longtail boat to the floating bungalows. The national park owns these bungalows. They are not owned by Paddle Asia.
Phang Nga Bay
Transfers from any accommodations on Phuket are included in the trip price.
Depending on where you're staying in Phuket, the pick up time is either 7:15 or 7:30 AM. There is a 7:00 am flight from Bangkok to Phuket on Thai Airways' flight #TG201. It arrives in Phuket at 8:20 am. We could pick you up at the airport and have you at the pier by about 9:00 am. That our normal time to start.
You'll be back at your accommodations on Phuket by about 5:30 PM.
