For guests with a larger budget, a private tour is an excellent way to see Cheow Lan lake in comfort. With endless formats and options available, there is therefore something for everyone in a private tour. The only limitations will be time, and also the types of activities desired.
The advantages of a private lake Cheow Lan lake tour are easy to see. Since there is no standard program the tour is therefore customized to the guests’ needs. Additionally, guests have full access to their local guide. As a result the guide can focus on fun stuff, like spotting wildlife and sharing information on local culture and lifestyle.
The main expense to consider when pricing a private Cheow Lan lake tour is accommodation. In addition to the bamboo floating bungalow, there are many other types of Khao Sok lake accommodation available. Guests have the option of deluxe bamboo bungalows, super-deluxe and modern bungalows, with air-conditioning and in-room plumbing. These options range in price from around 3,500B/night to over 6,000B/night. Consequently adding a long-tail boat and a guide, a one night private trip starts at between 4,500 and 6,000 Baht per person, depending on group size.
Some Khao Sok hotels organize private lake trips. However the best and most flexible tours are organized by the tour agency known as Khao Sok Lake. Due to the bespoke nature of a private Cheow Lan lake day tour or overnight trip, prices can only be quoted on request.
