Perfect destination to escape the hustle and bustle of the city life to get fresh air from the tropical rain forests in the deep South of Thailand in Yala province.

Hala-Bala Forest is one of the preserved areas in Thailand located at the boundary of Thai-Malaysia. Due to its location, the nature in this area is practically untouched so this is perfect for people to experience nature at its finest. Many interesting birds like hornbills are regularly spotted in this area.

Due to its location that is in the 3 Southern Border Provinces (SBP), this itinerary is not to be customized or changed for your own safety to go outside the scheduled route.


- Prepare clothes and shoes that are good for hiking and bring your bathing suit to experience the Waterfall!

- It is possible that there will be leeches in the forest when hiking so we recommend that you bring socks that can prevent you from leeches and shoes that can protect yourselves.

What is included in this trip:

- Meals per program (for 3D2N program – Breakfast (2), Lunch (1), Dinner (2)

- 2 nights’ accommodation at a local community (2 people per 1 room but if you’d like one room just for yourself, you can request it for additional charge.)

- VAT 7%

What is not included in the program:

- Any personal expenses

- Additional food or beverages that are not part of the program (lunch on the arriving day can be added on with additional charge but needs to be arranged in advance)

How to get there:

- You can fly to Yala or Hat Yai International Airports from Bangkok. The van will be arranged to pick you up from the airport of your choices with your group. We do not allow you to rent your own car for this trip due to warning from Thai government and certain areas that outsiders are not safe to go in. We ask that you stay with the strict itinerary with us on this one once you get into the 3 Southern Border Provinces (SBP) for your own safety.

FAQs For Tour Packages

Please see our cancellation policy. (Provide link to the cancellation policy page or section)

As most of our tours are customized tours with the local communities, we require at least 14 days to arrange everything with the local communities. The local communities also need time to prepare all the activities and buy necessary materials and ingredients as well as arrange the schedule of the people in the community. Thus, we need times to coordinate all the necessary things in order to do our best for you.

All our tours are decided to be personalized and customized based on your needs so they are required times to arrange and set up all the logistics and details for smooth operation. However, we have joined tours that you can join but these are based on the minimum travelers that will be on the tours, which sometimes there might be last minute cancellation. You can check by Chat (Provide link to Chat) with our travel consultants for the available seats for these joined tours.

We have two different types of tours which are customized tours and joined tours. For our customized tours, our travel consultants will help you with any need that you want. However, the price of these tours will be different based on the numbers of people on this trip and specific needs that you may have. For our upcoming joined tours, please see the schedule on our Upcoming Tours page.
