Pick up from you hotel in Phuket / Khao Lak to Surat Thani.

During the hour long journey across the lake to your raft house, you'll stop by Gui Lin scenic area where karst mountains rise dramatically from the water.  Upon arrival at your raft house, check in and be treated to a lunch of traditional Thai food, including a curry and a vegetable stir fry.

After the meal, take some time to relax before embarking on an afternoon hike through the jungle and learn about the flora and fauna of the world's longest standing forest.

As the day winds down, jump on a long tail boat to go wildlife spotting with your guide and get a chance to see macaque and langur monkeys, hornbills and eagles, gibbons, and if you are lucky, a wild elephant!

When you get back, enjoy a traditional Thai dinner of curry and fish before retiring to your floating bungalow.
