Experience the opportunity of a lifetime when we visit Elephant’s World, an ethical elephant sanctuary. You’ll be closer with these majestic creatures than you ever thought possible. Plant food for the elephants, feed fruit to them, splash in the mud with them, and scrub them clean all the while learning about the animals you’re playing with. Few animal interactions can compare. We’ll leave this experience with enriched minds, massive smiles, lasting memories and a new appreciation for the amazing animals. Most importantly, we’ll be positively impacting the lives of these elephants and their habitat.
On this trek we show you Erawan Waterfall, widely regarded as one of the most beautiful in Thailand. Erawan has seven different tiers of crystal clear blue water, all of which you can swim in, slide down, and jump into. The waterfall is very popular with the Thai people, and is visited during many a field trip and filmed in many Thai movies.
You can’t miss the Pool Party in Koh Phangan, with hundreds of partygoers to cover four vast and different sections. With a huge dance floor covered with revellers dancing on the tables, a floating dance floor in the ocean, and the massive pool filled with water fights, chicken fights and flip competitions, this is always a huge night with the LBW crew!
Plunge beneath the surface to discover a whole new underwater world. There are a wide variety of tropical fish and vibrant corals to see as you explore this unfamiliar aquatic territory. For those who wish to dive deeper, scuba diving is an optional activity on many of our tours.
Kayak through mangroves, caves, and lagoons with plenty of wildlife to spot including monkeys, birds and jumping fish. This kayak trip is often a favourite as it is a great group activity - and often gets quite competitive when we race back to the dock!
You will get a chance to see many indescribable views while in Thailand. Many of the islands we visit have incredible viewpoint hikes that we will take advantage of. After a long climb, the reward at the end is worth every step!
Rubber production is a major industry in Thailand and especially so in the village of Krabi where our Homestay is located. We use rubber products everyday, but few actually know where it comes from. During this visit we’ll gain a better understanding of this unique industry. Learn how the trees are cut and the how the rubber is collected. After, visit a factory where the rubber is processed and dried before shipped off to be made into shoes, tires and other items.
Surprisingly, many of the vehicles in Thailand are powered by palm oil from palm trees. Thailand is one of the major producers of palm oil, which is found in approximately 40-50% of household products. We will find out more about this oil used around the world as we explore the plantation and factory.
All aboard! Spend an afternoon cruising on the water to different bays, islands and swim spots. Dance the day away with the sun on your face and wind in your hair. There’s nothing like a party on the open water!
