Where Thai Tradition Meets Nature
Khao Phra Thaeo National Park
Khao Prataew National Park is the larger of the two National Parks on Phuket Island and covers approximately 2,200 square kilometers of Rainforest. It is extremely important in the conservation and preservation of natural fauna and wildlife and is also home to Phuket's Gibbon Rehabilitation Centre. The park has two waterfalls, Ton Sai and Bang Pae, which can be reached by trekking along the jungle trails through the rainforest.
Sirinat National Park
Sirinat National Park is located to the north of Phuket and encompasses some 90 square kilometers of white sand beaches, mangrove and beach forests, crystal clear waters and diverse marine wildlife. The national park was primarily established to protect the sea turtle nesting grounds and to the north of the park is a long stretch of pristine and virtually deserted white sand beach, the perfect antidote to the busier beaches in the south of the island.
Similan Islands National Park
The Similan Islands National Park is an archipelago consisting of nine small islands and is ranked as one of the top 10 dive sites in the world. Located approx 100 km northwest of Phuket in the Andaman Sea, the richness and diversity of the marine life is what makes these islands so special with gently sloping reefs, huge granite boulders, caverns and swim-throughs producing a fascinating underwater landscape. The islands themselves have some of the most stunning white sand beaches to be found in the whole of South East Asia with gently lapping crystal clear waters and huge dramatic granite boulders adorning the headlands.
Khao Sok National Park
Khao Sok National Park is located in Surathani province on the mainland and is a couple of hour's journey north from Phuket. It is one of the best known National parks in Thailand and one of the oldest rainforest habitats in the world, home to an amazingly diverse range of plants and animals including Elephants, Tigers, Deer, Bears, Gibbons, Macaque and squirrels.
