Is there any areas in Phuket or Ko Samui where you can do river tubing?
Yes, in Phuket.
There are plenty of places where you can book a tubing tour in Phuket but the actual tubing is in Phang Nga Province not on Phuket Island. Most of the tours include other things like elephant rides and atv ride etc as it is a full day day trip.
do know where and what is in the water you are tubing in, and consider it will be warm water, so a host for other things you may not encounter in cooler mountain river streams.
i doubt if tubing in thailand would meet your expectations.
Yes same Aaron, this link has someones experience of doing it and they had a great time, though the tubing section was only 30 minutes :)
NO, not even close to the same. as I said, you'll be greatly disappointed. i'd give it a huge pass. IMHO
tubing down a crystal clear river for hours, just doesn't compare to 30-45 minutes of muddy water, maybe a meter or two deep.............if lucky.
My hubby and son went tubing in Khao Sok (about 2-3 hrs north of Phuket) and they loved it!
Trip was for about 1 hour or so....
Cool - I'll have a look at it. I'll be staying in Khao Lak so hopefully should be less than 3 hours.
