The Phang Nga 3 hour ATV tour is one of our all time favorite tours, we do this tour at least twice every time we visit Phuket. The tour with Atv Phuket is held off Phuket Island in Phang Nga province, ample food, water and soft drinks plus transfers are included. After about 1.5 hrs we arrived at our starting point for the tour and were then given cold towels, drinks and fresh fruits.
Then it was time to inspect our ATV’s. Every ATV is numbered and there’s a huge checklist to go through, every mark, scratch etc is recorded.
The ATV’s we used were new Adly 320cc Quad bikes, and they are much more comfortable and powerful than the ones they use on the 2hour Phuket ride. After a safety briefing and a few laps of training around a track we were ready for our adventure. Safety is big with Atv Phuket, the guides are all trained in first aid and if they do not think you are proficient enough to be a rider they will not let you ride and put you on the back with a guide.
The tour was just fantastic and the sights are amazing, we are riding on off road trails past local farms, plantations, through the jungle and remote villages. You also ride down a section of the river and it just keeps getting better, in front of us in the middle of nowhere is a beautiful waterfall.
Our guides set up soft drinks and water, then everyone jumps in for a swim. Its absolutely freezing, just perfect and so refreshing. So don't forget to wear your swimmers and bring a towel.
We are going up to the peak of the mountain.
Most of the way up is on a cement road, we would pull over when cars or bikes were coming not that there were many, or when cows, ducks, chickens or goats would decide to cross near us.
Once at the top of the mountain its time for a drink break and time to look around and take photos of the beautiful views, I cant believe how high up we have come, its just fantastic.
Then its time to get into low speed for the descent, we leave the cement road and head back into the jungle, in the distance we can see a huge dark area which we are heading for, it’s a massive rubber tree plantation, an instant cooling effect as the sun cannot get all the way through.
After our descent we once again pass many local villages where children (and their parents) would come running out waving to us.
We did not want this tour to end but sadly after 3 hours riding around Phang Nga province we are back at the starting point. Once again plate after plate of delicious sandwiches, fruits and drinks are bought out.
I cannot recommend the company ATV Phuket strongly enough, all the guides are extremely experienced, trained in safety and first aid and very professional. This is such a fun filled tour with magnificent sights along the way, the photos tell the story.
The 3hr Phang Nga tour is something we will always take friends and family on each time we visit Phuket.
