Nakhon Si Thammarat

Southern Thai cuisine is intense and full of exciting flavors, and when those who are masters in cooking it partner up with the seasoned fishermen of Tha Sala, it becomes a formula for an endless culinary adventure.

  • Cook Nakhon Si Thammarat cuisine with locally-sourced ingredients
  • Make a variety of curry pastes with Muslimah community enterprise
  • Try exclusive recipes: coconut rice with squid ink, deep fried mangrove leaves and shrimps, mullet and coconut shoots in sour soup
  • Indulge in fresh seafood, especially shrimp, crab, mullet and snapper bought from fishing boats
  • Relax with a mud spa treatment


2 Day 1 Night Trip

Day 1
12:00 Travel from Nakhon Si Thammarat, it takes approximately 45 minutes.
13:00 Meet at Ban Laem Homestay Mangrove Conservation Office, have an orientation to the community with local guides and try some local snacks and herbal drinks.
14:00 Watch a coconut climbing demonstration, a unique harvesting technique invented by the villagers. The fruits are processed in many different ways to meet local demands. Guests can learn, try and taste a variety of products.
16:30 Check-in and get some rest or join the villagers’ evening exercise. Cycling is a good option, as well as taking a walk to explore the mangroves and mingle with the villagers.
17:30 Dinner with the hosts’ family at your village home.
20:00 Hear a briefing about tomorrow’s activities. It will be a long day!
20:30 Return to your room.
Day 2
04:00 The hosts wake up guests to finish their personal routine in time for the boat ride.
05:00 Meet at the pier and get ready to visit Ao Thong Kham Tha Sala.
05:30 Arrive at the viewpoint at sea to watch the sunrise, have coffee and breakfast while watching flocks of birds get ready for their day. Wait for the first light to appear as the spectacular view mesmerizes you.
06:00 Take a swim in the warm water (if you want), then take a walk on the smoothest surface of sea mud; this can be used as the key ingredient for skin treatment – just apply it for 15-20 min and then wash it off with sea water.
07:30 Resume the ride and get to know more about inshore fisheries in the area. Watch trawling boats and shop for their fresh – these are unprocessed catches that haven’t even reached the shore yet.
08:30 Take the prepared mangrove seedlings and plant them in their natural location. Guests can choose between joining this conservation activity, take a mud treatment, or go to pick the Cha Kram, a wild plant commonly found in mangroves, which can be taken home as a souvenir.
09:30 Return to the pier.
10:30 Arrive at the pier. Guests can take a shower and enjoy some refreshments. Meanwhile, small fishing boats are heading back with their fresh catches – making this the best time to shop for seafood.
11:45 Have a southern Thai lunch or other dishes of choice. The hosts are ready to hear your requests.
13:00 Farewell and travel back.
