Ban Song Phraek, Phang Nga: Adventure Tourism Resurgence Draws Throngs of Tourists


The tourist atmosphere at Ban Song Phraek in Muang Phang Nga District has sprung back to life, as adventure seekers and nature enthusiasts flock to this renowned tourism spot. Situated in the heart of Phang Nga, Ban Song Phraek has earned a reputation as the most sought-after destination for nature-based thrills and excitement.

Tourists from both Thai and foreign origins have been streaming in daily, hailing from various regions like Phuket, Krabi Province, and groups staying within Phang Nga province itself. Among the visitors, Arab and European tourists stand out as avid fans of adventure tourism, drawn by the allure of rafting in Khlong Song Phraek and embarking on thrilling elephant trekking excursions along natural routes.

The attraction of Ban Song Phraek lies in its adrenaline-pumping rafting experiences, where the currents rush through numerous rocks and rapids, presenting an exciting and challenging journey for tourists. The 4-kilometer and 8-kilometer rafting routes offer not only adventure but also breathtaking views of the surrounding natural beauty.

Speaking about the tourism situation in Phang Nga province during January to June 2023, Mr. Uthit Limsakul, the Director of Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) in Phang Nga, reported a remarkable influx of more than 1.1 million tourists. Despite being the green season, TAT Phang Nga Office made proactive efforts to promote Wetventure water tourism, enticing visitors to explore the fruit orchards of Salika Durian and Mangosteen Thip Phang Nga during the rainy season.

Even with the temporary closure of tourism in the Similan Islands and Surin Islands, Phang Nga continues to charm tourists with its marine attractions in Phang Nga Bay and Koh Yao, offering year-round travel opportunities for marine enthusiasts.

As Ban Song Phraek thrives once again, the district and its neighboring regions find themselves reinvigorated by the influx of adventure-seeking travelers, breathing new life into Phang Nga’s tourism landscape.
