Andaman Mangrove Explorer

Day 1 Phuket - Yao Noi Island

Discover the countryside of Phuket on our bikes as we cycle along rubber plantations. Here, traditional way of tapping the trees and hand rolling the rubber into sheets are still common. Phuket is known for its pineapples and we will see fields of this fruit on this part of the island. We cycle through a mangrove forest and if we're lucky, spot tiny crabs crawling out on the roots of these trees. Then hop on a longtail boat with our bikes and join fellow travellers to Yao Noi. On shore, we explore this paradise island cycling through rice paddies and coconut farms and soak in the simplicity of life amidst serene natural setting. The island provides a great vantage point for breathtaking views of the Phang Nga bay. We visit the village where batik is made and get to know the chao lae, local fishermen. In the evening we'll head to the night market and try some local favourites, including roti.

Day 2 Yao Noi - Krabi - Phuket

We say goodbye to Yao Noi and cross the Phang Nga Bay through karsts back to mainland. Once on land we’ll ride through palm plantations and pineapple fields and we’ll be towered by limestone cliffs as we cycle on back roads. Our destination today is a magical mangrove forest where the water from the limestone mountains meets the sea water. Here, the ecosystem is well preserved and a nature trail leads you through it to a point where you can take a refreshing dip into the crystal clear pool. After lunch we pack up and head back to Phuket, approximately a 2-hour drive.
