Phuket Tourist Information Guide

Read Introduction

Rafting in Phuket? Phuket is not known to be a place for whitewater rafting. Why? Phuket doesn’t have rivers to go down from! But fear not friends. Everyone heads up to Phang Nga, the province north of Phuket, where the Son Preak Rafting Station is located.

The float down the river is about five kilometers long and takes just under an hour. The water isn’t all that rough, but it is exciting and suitable for kids (young teenagers). The river is named the 'Song Preak River' and, although it is not the most dramatic river current in the world, it can sometime, specially after a heavy rainy season storm (from May through October), provide a more trilling ride.

One of the the tour company selling this complete package (pick-up and ride) is the 'Phuket Sealand Co-Day Tours' which we have used before and from which you can see the video we made with them on our page below. Life vests and helmets are mandatory and they do take safety matters into account. You’ll probably enjoy this rafting tour, though not in Phuket, it’s close by and a provide a real good adrenaline rush – especially if you’re never done anything like this before.

If you have gone rafting before and are looking for a big thrill, this one might be a relatively tame one. You can definitively find more thrilling adventurous whitewater rafting areas by taking a trip up north Thailand to Chiang Mai for some class-5 rapids! Though technically you cannot do any rafting in Phuket, you can organize the entire day out from the island and find your way out to Phang Nga! * As you can see we have only one 'product' on this page at the moment. We are sorry for the inconvenience and assure you that we will list more as soon as we have done our research on availability and quality. *
