park in 1987. The area is home to various ethnic groups such as Mon and
Karen.
Jump aboard your charming and comfortable houseboat for check in and get to

special coconut, which is only grown a few places in Thailand. In the afternoon,

your neighbor back home.

streams and hilly terrain in the jungle, gives a good impression of the
performance of this large mammal and agility on even the narrowest paths.
Wearing life jackets and lightweight clothing, we are now ready Bamboo rafting
