What to see in Khanom

If the first reason to come to Khanom is to relax enjoying the beach and the sea, there are a lot of interesting things to discover around. The famous pink dolphins off course among others.Meeting them is usually part of an interesting tour that I recommend to you which also takes you to visit the small island of Koh Nui, Khao Wang Thong cave and ends with a meal and a session of fish spas in the river. There are other caves that also worth seeing such as Khao Klop cave and its opening with breathtaking views of the surrounding area. There are also mangroves with crab-eating monkeys, boat rides on the khlong Khanom including a fireflies tour in the evening like the one you can experience in Amphawa, viewpoints, a nice night market on Saturdays... To sum up, there is a lot to do and see beside beach activities!

Must-visits in Khanom

Pink dolphins

โลมาสีชมพู
My opinion :
When talking about Khanom in Thailand, pink dolphins are usually the first thing that comes out. It is unique in Thailand and quite rare in the world and that if seeing them is obviously not guaranteed, when taking a boat to see them with an experienced captain in calm weather, it is quite rare that you come back without having meet some. But it happens...

Khao Wang Thong Cave

ถ้ำถ้ําเขาวังทอง
My opinion :
It is the most famous cave in the Nakhon Si Thammarat province where Khanom district is located. The interior rooms with their stalagmites and stalactites are superb. There are also bats inside. One of the must-visits in Kanom but you must love the caves !

Natural fish spas

สวนตาสรรค์
My opinion :
There is a small stretch of river near Khanom, just before the province of Surat Thani, which is known for its small fishes that eat dead skin. You sit on a ban in the watercourse, dive your feet and in a few seconds, there will be several fish to come to take care of your feet.

Saturday Walking Street

ถนนคนเดิน
My opinion :
It is not in Khanom but in the village just after it Bn Ton that hosts every Saturday evening a Walking Street, a large night market that settles in a street where cars are forbidden for the occasion. There is mostly food stalls and eating is the essential reason to go there.
