We will leave Bangkok early morning by private minibus (approx. 3.5 hrs). On the way we will stop at one of the largest fruit orchards in the area, where you can enjoy a selection of tasty fresh fruits straight from the tree. Upon arrival at the fishing village you will be warmly welcomed by the local family you are staying with the next two nights. After lunch you can cycle around the area and see their way of life. One of the highlights will be a visit to the fertile mangrove forest. Afterwards there will be plenty of free time to enjoy yourself and explore the village before settling down for the night.
The next morning you can sit down and enjoy a large breakfast before preparing for your boat journey to Mon Nai and Mon Klang Island for a day of snorkeling and swimming at their beautiful white-sand beaches. You can also visit the sea turtle conservation project on the island, which is part of the Royal project, which works to cultivate the traditional way of life and preserve the natural resources of Thailand. After your trip, you will return to the homestay for a good rest. Feel free to explore the village or enjoy a friendly chat with the locals before putting your head down for the night.
The next morning you will be served a savory breakfast. You can visit the morning market, and if you are lucky, have the opportunity to offer food to the village monks as they make their morning alms round through the village on their way to the temple. Afterwards you will return to the homestay, pack your belongings and say goodbye to ‘your’ family. From here you can choose to transfer to the boat pier in Trad (about 2 hrs), then take a ferry across to Koh Chang or transfer back to Bangkok.
