Get ready for a journey into a forgotten world in the hidden forest of Takuapa, the "Little Amazon". On the trip to the palm forest with a paddle boat you will get into the dense jungle, surrounded by huge banyan trees, where you can listen to the sounds of nature along the small river "Klong Sung Nae". This excursion also includes a ride with a local Thai taxi "Songteaw" to the old town of Takuapa, where you can experience the local goings-on in the charming small town and where traditional life and culture have been practiced unchanged for more than a hundred years. Also note the old-style buildings, small cafes and the most famous part of Takuapa: the old tin mines and tin factories, where production continued until the 1920s.
