Cha Am & Hua Hin
Kingdom of Thailand
Petchaburi Town &
Start the tour with a visit to Wat Kamphaeng Laeng, a 13th century
Hindu monument of Khmer background which later became a Buddhist
temple. Continue to Phra Nakorn Khiri the beautiful summer palace
of King Rama IV atop the Mahaisawan Hill. The palace displays an
interesting mixture of Western, Thai and Chinese architectural styles,
and also commands a magnificent view of Petchaburi town down below.
The palace museum houses some very interesting personal artifacts
of King Rama IV and V.
Pa La-U Waterfalls
Enjoy a trek through unspoilt rainforest, climbing gradually up
the different levels of the waterfall, and enjoy swimming and bathing
in one of the pools. A Thai picnic lunch is included so that you
may recharge your battery!
We will drive you inland towards the hills to see the H.M. the Queen's
initiated animal sanctuary project. The animals here have been rescued
from illegal export and mistreatment and are being rehabilitated
prior to sending them back to their natural environment in the wild.
We then continue to the Marukathaiwan Palace, meaning literally
the Palace of Love, designed by King Rama VI and completed in 1924.
The palace is made entirely from teakwood and stretches out into
the sea via a pier. Before returning to your hotel we shall visit
Khao Takiab, or Monkey Mountain, where wild monkeys reside, and
Hin Lek Fai mountain for a spectacular view of Hua Hin.
Khao Sam Roi Yod National Park
The 'Three Hundred Peaks Mountain' is the site of the Tham Phraya
Nakorn, a cave which houses a royal sala built for King Chulalongkorn
who would stop off here during his journey between Bangkok and Nakorn
Sri Thammarat. The cave is reachable by a steep 450-metre trek to
the cave entrance. After a picnic lunch time is allowed for relaxing
and swimming at the beach before returning by boat to Bang Pu village
and your drive back to the hotel.
