    It was a great day and a unique experience. We were so happy to see dolphines. Our guide was really nice and knew a lot about this animals. In addition to that he recpected them and it was really animal friendly. After we ate in a Restaurant and it was delicious and the people there are all so nice and happy. We are also vegetarians but this was no problem for them;) Also the rest of our tour the fishspa in the little river and the fresh water lake was fantastic. I think we never laughed that often with our guide. He was soooo nice and we had soo much fun. It was the the best day in our vacation. I can highly recommend this tour!!!!:) See more..

    Toon Tours image
    The owner of Toon’s Tours is a great resource in the Khanom and Surat Thani area of Thailand. He was recommended to us by the owner of the CC Beach Bar in Khanom Beach. We started with a one day tour and booked several more tours including a 3 day trip to Khao Sak National Park. After spending 2 weeks on Koh Phangan we hired him again for a ride from Donsak to Patong Beach. He’s the safest driver I have found during my travels throughout Thailand. See more..

  9. 4.5 Khanom Beach (185 reviews)
    - Nice beach!
    Spent More than 3 hours Beaches
    Khanom Beach image
    Long stretch and largely untouched - maybe except on the weekends - the beach is a non mainstream location for nice beach and blue green waters. The sand is very fine; very comparable to that of Koh Samui's Chaweng beach. That said, the beach is not only scenic but also feels away from it all. Not a wonder this place is dubbed a hidden gem, although I feel it won't be for long given its rise in popularity amongst the Thais and seasoned foreigner living in Thailand altogether. See more..
  10. 4.5 Kiriwong village (113 reviews)
    - Day Trip to KhiriWong
    Monday: 12:00 AM - 11:59 PM Spent 1-2 hours Neighborhoods • Points of Interest & Landmarks • Scenic Walking Areas

    Visited whilst travelling from Phatthalung to NST, lovely village, clean and fresh air. Number of shop and stalls selling lots of produce and gifts along with market stalls selling fruit, veg and other foodstuff. Lovely River with Cafe & Restaurant nearby plus great for a swim to cool off or have a BBQ. Great few hours spent here. See more..
  11. 4.5 Wat Chedi (62 reviews)
    - A million chickens
    Religious Sites
    Wat Chedi image
    The young man who inspired the updated thousand year-old temple was was an expert on cock fighting (essentially a gambling sport) and his numerology has caught the imagination of the Thai gamblers - legal with the state lottery or illegal through he different numbers games organised in the country. The donations of hopeful players have contributed to the blatant wealth of the ongoing constructions in this monastery. There must literally be a million plaster chickens on or around the site - as well as a few real ones too. Well worth spending an hour with endless photo opportunities. See more..
  12. 4.5 Nakhon Si Thammarat National Museum (51 reviews)
    - A must
    Speciality Museums
    Nakhon Si Thammarat National Museum image

    Tham Khao Wang Thong image
    Visited with family whilst on holiday in the area. Wow what a super cave, stunning location. Bit of a climb up to the reception platform and entrance, certainly only for able bodied folk. What a stunning cave system, super staff, really great guides to show you round one of the best untouched caves i have been in. Definitely a visit when in Khanom. See more..
  14. 4.5 Laem Prathap (40 reviews)

    Points of Interest & Landmarks
    Laem Prathap image
    You can get a fishing longtail boat from the peer to take you to see pink dolphins with 1000 baht for the whole boat. We came by scooters from Khanom - very quiet road in good shape, so was a nice drive. Some 200m from the peer there is also a tiny lone beach which is really idyllic and perfect for a short stay. Nothing else to do here, only if you want to see the dolphins. See more..

    Nakhon Si Thammarat City Pillar Shrine image
    A beautiful White temple complex, the temple is in the city and easy to reach, there were no crowds of people so my partner and myself found it very easy to move around and take in the lovely sight of the temples. If you should wish to buy an item to remind you of the temple there is a shop on site. You should not miss this temple when you visit the city, you will not need an hour as it is easy to walk around in a short time. See more..

    Hello, today I will review Sichon Beach, Nakhon Si Thammarat Province. It is a beach with clear water and white sand. and look at the sea with a mix of blue and green The atmosphere is shady and cool with the wind. There is a restaurant by the sea But very expensive haha Sichon is another beautiful beach in Nakhon Si Thammarat. There are also beautiful nearby islands as well. There is a road built overlooking the sea. I want everyone to try it once in their life. See more..

    - Simply a Must Visit
    Points of Interest & Landmarks
    Shadow Play House of Suchat Sapsin image
    Visited with family whilst staying in NST. A super place showing the art of shadow puppetry from its history, the making of puppets and the superb show that they put on, outstanding. Uncle Suchat Shadow Puppet House is not only the production source and distribution place of the shadow play and the grand shadow play, it also provides demonstrations in the shadow puppet house. Moreover, the area is divided to be a museum to exhibit the local appliances and the international shadow puppet museum. See more..

  25. 4.5 Krung Ching Waterfall (9 reviews)
    - More than worth the hike!
    Krung Ching Waterfall image
    As we paid the 200 THB to enter the park, the nice park ranger informed us that there were only 2 people beside us in the park. We met them about 1 km later as they were on their way back. And so we ended up having the trail, the views and the waterfall completely to ourselves. And we're still awestruck about the silence and sounds, the smells, the mist and roaring waterfall. Would do the hike again anyday! See more..
  26. 4.5 A Hundred Year Market (8 reviews)
    - Traditional market
    Spent < 1 hour Farmers Markets
    A Hundred Year Market image
    Very traditional market in a still traditional town that show signs of change. When we visited an old wooden house was being replaced by housing in the market. A wide range of local produce is on sale. We bought a very durable wooden tamarind chopping board for 140 baht. Lots of food and snacks on offer. See more..
  27. 4.5 Samed Choon Waterfall (8 reviews)
    - An oasis to cool down
    Spent More than 3 hours Waterfalls
    Samed Choon Waterfall image
    Samed Choon is one of the 3 water falls in Khanom area. We only visited Hit Lat and Samed Choon. Samed Choon was way better than Hit Lat and seems to be pretty popular among locals at least during the public holidays. We visited Samed Choon twice and on the second time, there were only us. Waterfall is a small one, but contains a nice pool to swim and have fun in the water. Water is fresh and cooling. There is a swing in a tree, that you can use to jump in to the water. If you are in to some adventure you can go exploring the waterfall upwards, as it continues and continues. There is some uphill hiking to the fall, but the fall is refreshing and provides some nice views to the ocean as well. As the waterfall is in the middle of forest, remember to bring your own water as there are no services nearby. Get a map, rent a scooter and enjoy! See more..
  28. 4.5 Ai Khiao Waterfall (7 reviews)
    - Beautiful Setting, Small waterfalls
    Speciality Museums
    Ai Khiao Waterfall image
    Ai Khaio waterfalls are not the most spectacular I have ever visited, but it was nice to drive up from the city and spend time in this beautiful, natural setting. A clear, swift-moving stream tumbles over large boulders, beneath overhanging trees. The river is teeming with small fish, which can be seen clearly in small pools along the edge of the stream. The falls are very popular with local Thai teens, who were there by the dozen to swim in the deep pools. See more..
  29. 4.5 Si Khit Waterfall (7 reviews)
    - Beautiful jungle
    Si Khit Waterfall image
    Finding these waterfalls was not difficult with gps. It's about an hour and a half away from Nahkon Si Thammarat. It's 100baht for foreigners, and a short walk to the river. There are three waterfalls in the park, but you have to drive to each one because they're far from eachother. The main waterfall at the entrance of the park is not huge or impressive. They're very mellow and create pools that entire families were enjoying. There are a small picnic tables and a lot of locals. The vegetation is so rich that you're in shade the whole time. It's very beautiful surrounded by rich, lush trees. I highly recommend going here if you're in the area. See more..
