Why We Love It
For the whole family
It can be challenging to find an activity that everyone will agree on especially if your group has diverse age groups, interests and personalities. Fortunately, the Full Day Safari Tour by Mr. Ung’s is more likely to please every member of your group, including the kids. Unlike going to the mall or the cinema where you are together but don’t fully interact with each other, a tour like this will keep everyone engaged and present at the moment.
Fun and informative
This island safari tour has a balance of fun and knowledge, making it a truly enriching way to spend the day. You can soak up a lot of information about Koh Samui at every stop and be able to admire the richness and diversity of its landscapes. At the same time, you will have a great time riding your tour vehicle as you check out offbeat paths that only locals can take you to. You can get to see the monkeys perform their tricks and be able to get up close and personal with the elephants. You will also be acquainted with some of Samui’s yummy local fruits, swim at the falls, and be able to see other interesting areas of the island such as Maenam and Bophut
Well thought out program
Instead of sticking to places that you can easily visit on your own, Mr. Ung’s Full Day Safari takes you to some of the island’s lesser known spots such as a rubber plantation. Of course, notable Koh Samui attractions like the Big Buddha and Mummified Monk Temple are also included but with Mr. Ung’s you can go beyond the mainstream. The beauty of this program is that you can choose to book a shared trip with other guests or have a private tour with just your group plus your driver. Private Safari Tours are pricier but you can have the privacy and the luxury of getting to know Samui with just your favorite people. Price starts at 8000 baht, depending on the group size.
The Full Day Safari Tour is not just all about the sights and the fun activities. It is also about the food. The program includes lunch at an amazing mountain top restaurant where you can try delectable local dishes and be able to bask in a spectacular scenery as you eat.
Convenient and Hassle Free
When you book at Mr. Ung’s, you need not worry about a thing. You will be picked up at your hotel before the tour so all you really need to do is show up, ride, and soak up the fun. Most entrance fees are covered too so you need not trouble yourself with those things as well.
Sure, you can go on a DIY island tour (some travellers dig this) and that can be fun if you are on your own or as a couple. However if you have kids with you or you basically just want to take the stress out of sightseeing, then this Full Day Safari Tour is what you need. Here you won’t need a map and you won’t have to second guess where to go since you will follow an organized itinerary and be guided by an expert.
While the tour seems pricey at first glance, it actually isn’t. With the comprehensive program and what’s included you will definitely get your money’s worth and more. The truth is, if you decide to replicate this tour on your own you might end up spending more money. As this company has been providing tours for many years, they have done all the work so they can give you the most cost efficient way to see the best of Koh Samui. In fact, the price for their tour is even less that what you will pay for other activities on the island.
The best part of going on an organized tour like this is that not only will you be able to indulge your senses during your trip, you will also deepen your understanding of Koh Samui. Because you will be seeing not just the touristy part of the island, you will truly be able to understand its culture and people. Plus, it will open your eyes to the beauty of local natural wonders.
Knowledgeable tour guide
Any tour can only be a success if your guide is competent and has an understanding and first hand experience of the island. The knowledge of the guide is what will truly give meaning to your journey and with Mr. Ung’s, you will only be assigned to the best local tour guides.
