Private Excursion

Wat Bang Riang is an unusual temple that remains unknown to tourists. Located in Phang Nga province, it is a sacred temple where locals often come to pay their respect to Buddha.

Thailand is a predominantly Buddhist country (85% of the population is Buddhist, compared to 10% Muslim), however the further south of Thailand you go, the more Muslims you will find; in fact some provinces bordering neighboring Malaysia are 95% Muslim!

This is why Wat Bang Riang Temple is even more interesting, as it has become a place of worship for local Buddhists from Phang Nga Bay, Krabi, Phuket or even neighboring Khao Lak.


Mixing of culture and wild nature in Krabi!

Instead of visiting the most touristic sites in Krabi, the Thalassa Tour team has designed this excursion, customized to your needs, where the guides will spend the day with you to show you the wild side of this part of the world: Thailand.


We will visit Wat Bang Riang Temple, one of the most interesting and fameless Buddhist temples located between Phang Nga Bay and Krabi region, we will eat delicious Thai seafood in a local restaurant located next to the river that cross the provinces of Krabi and Phang Nga. And finally we will take a “long tail boat” through the mangrove lake in Ban Bor Thor, to visit a prehistoric cave full of stalactites!

This private excursion is simply spectacular!

On the way to Wat Bang Riang you will have the opportunity to admire the magnificent views of the Krabi region with its imposing cliffs and lush jungle!

This temple is located in Phang Nga Province and sitting on top of the great Khao Lan Mountain, you will undoubtedly enjoy the most impressive temple in southern Thailand.

This place is out of the usual tourist circuits!


Next stop, and not far from Wat Bang Riang Temple, will be a genuine local restaurant next to the river: Seafood Restaurant Tha Sai, with succulent Thai seafood dishes, and with stunning views of the Phang Nga Mountain and its huge river.

Get ready for a great variety of local dishes, where you will taste the best seafood and fish of this part of Thailand, such as the red crab cooked the Krabi style, and clams with chili sauce.
We are sure that you will not be disappointed!


Our next and last stop will be the marvelous mangrove river in Ban Bor Thor, situado al norte de Krabi. Has navegado antes en barco entre manglares, cuevas y acantilados de piedra caliza? Es por ello que este lugar es único y diferente a lo que has visto hasta ahora en Tailandia! Navegaremos en un barco “long tail”, barco de madera tradicional utilizado por los pescadores en Tailandia. Cruzaremos el río a través de los manglares y cuevas cercanas, la excursión por este río es simplemente espectacular, pues verdaderamente es un lugar salvaje que sorprende por sus paisajes y entorno. Podremos ver una gran variedad de vida, como por ejemplo los peces pulmonados, cangrejos azules de manglares, monos y diferentes especies… Una de las paradas estrella de esta excursión a los templos en Tailandia: Wat Bang Riang y Ban Bor Thor, que estamos seguros te sorprenderá tanto por su belleza natural así como por su gran valor histórico, es la Cueva de Phee Hua Toe, conocida como “la cueva del dedo del pie”. De acuerdo con los hallazgos de los arqueólogos, este sitio sirvió como refugio en Tailandia para las primitivas culturas ancestrales hace más de 3.000 años. En esta cueva podremos ver numerosas pinturas murales, mientras nos adentramos en el corazón de la propia cueva, rodeados de enormes estalactitas y estalagmitas! Este es un lugar único y sorprendente!
