We went on a sea caves & hong tour which started on a large boat that took us around to different locations. Not long after we boarded the boat we had a buffet lunch, the food was prepared fresh on the boat by staff & consisted of curries, salads, soup, fresh fruit, rice & noodles. It was of very good quality which was surprising seeing it was cooked in a small area on the boat & was a huge selection. Entering the sea caves on our kayaks was an experience in itself, at some places we had to lie flat on our backs just to get through the entrance which can only be accessed at certain times due to the tides, our guide David was a wealth of knowledge & kept a commentary of different facts & pointed out animals & sights that we may not necessarily have seen on our own. Going through the caves into the Hongs - hidden enclosed lagoons was amazing, absolute untouched beauty that was breath taking.
Dinner was also provided, again amazing food full of colour & flavours & wide range of selections. As the day was ending we made a Kratong with the help of our guide & then had the experience of lighting it & setting it off into the sea to float, although we were unable to let our Kratong go by itself as the traditional time for the Thai people is not until the full moon of Nov it was a very touching experience to participate in such a significant Thai tradition.
If you only do one tour while in Thailand this is the one to do, a well spent day that will stay with us forever : )
