Wake up and have breakfast at your hotel before your morning visit to Wat Phra Mahathat, considered the oldest temple in Thailand. Although uncertain, some say it could date back to the 11th century. Afterwards, continue to the shadow puppet museum and the old home of shadow puppet master Suchart Subsin
to learn about the region’s shadow theatre culture. Then, travel towards Khao Luang National Park, known for its impactful mountain and forest trails, streams, waterfalls, and majestic scenery. The park surrounds the 1,835m peak of Khao Luang mountain, covered in lush, untouched forest, and home to a variety of bird species and a number of wild orchid varieties. Next, we go to the Khanom region and climb up the 300 stairs to the entrance of the Tham Khao Wang Tong cave, a limestone-iron ore cave with chambers full of beautiful and oddly shaped stalagmites and stalactites. A tasty lunch is provided en route at a local restaurant.
Overnight in hotel in Khanom on selected board basis.
