Day 13: Khao Sok National Park
Lucky you with all this time in the oldest evergreen rainforest in the world.

This place is paradise, especially if you love nature – if you're super lucky there might be a glimpse of elephants, exotic Hornbills, water-loving Langur Monkeys and even the occasional tiger deep inside the park.

Seien wir mal ehrlich: Niemand geht auf Reisen, um den Spaß zu erleben für 3 Stunden in einer Warteschlange für Tickets zu stehen oder erfolglos nach einem Restaurant mit authentischen Speisen zu suchen (um schließlich aufzugeben und bei McDonalds zu landen). Deshalb beinhalten unsere Reisen einige Eintrittsgebühren zu den Hauptsehenswürdigkeiten, die Unterkünfte, alle Transportmittel, gelegentliche Mahlzeiten sowie das Know-How eines örtlichen erfahren Reiseführers. Zwar gibt es auch genügend Zeit, damit du dein eigenes Ding tun kannst, es sind aber auch Gruppenaktivitäten enthalten - weil manche Dinge gemeinsam einfach mehr Spaß machen! Diese Tour ist eine Backpacker-Tour, jedoch mit einer guten Portion Planung, so dass du dich auf das Wesentliche konzentrieren kannst: Das Erleben und Entdecken von Thailand!
