In between, you’ll head into the heart of the Thai rainforest on an all-inclusive glamping safari. Here, everything from guided treks and canoe trips to longboat cruises and stays on chic floating camps will see you walk with elephants, spot monkeys among dense canopies and visit hidden rural communities.

Honeymooners are also greeted with sparkling wine, fruit and flowers.

The elephants of Khao Sok National Park

Today, your transfer will see you into the depths of southern Thailand’s largest rainforest. Here, you’ll stay in luxury tented camps, spending one night among the trees and the other floating on a river. Waking each morning to whooping gibbon calls, you’ll be treated to three days of authentic local dining and all-inclusive activities. You’ll swim in glassy lakes, hike into the jungle and paddle canoes through intertwining waterways as your expert guides point out everything from monkeys to lizards hidden among the exotic vegetation. But, it’s the chance to feed and wash the camp’s elephants that’s the real highlight. In between, you’ll enjoy dance performances, cooking presentations, longtail boat cruises and market visits.

There’s everything from nature trail bike rides to kayak trips through secluded mangroves. Hopping between karst islets on longboat cruises, snorkel trips and scuba dives is a particular highlight.
