Topic: Than Bok Khorani National Park

we have our own car and will be driving to this park. can we hire canoes there or do we need an organised tour?   also anything else we should do while we are there and what is the nearest "basic" accomodation (not a tent and not an expensive resort) but a bungalow with mosquito net and private bathroom?

Re: Than Bok Khorani National Park

There is no canoeing in the park HQ - the nearest place would be from Bor Thor pier, some 10km away. You can rent your own kayaks there with a guide, no need to take an organised  tour.

This area is only an hour's drive from Ao Nang and Krabi Town so you may not need to find overnight accommodation there; if you would like to stay, however, there are a couple of basic hotels in Ao Luk town.

Other than the national park HQ, with waterfalls etc., there are a lot of caves you can explore in the area, plus the temple of Wat Bang Riang nearby. If you order or pick up one of our guidebooks, there's a lot more information about all these attractions, plus suggested driving routes.
