Pai River White Water Rafting Tour Cost & River Tubing Price, Thailand
One of the most popular activities to enjoy on the river is river tubing. You can hire an inflated rubber tube and can float down the river as you relax and take in the sights and sounds of Thailand. Prices can vary, but expect to pay between 200-300 THB per person. Generally a truck or tuk tuk will take you up stream and then will meet you a few kilometres down the river.
For adrenaline junkies, you can also go white water rafting. There are many tour operators in the area which offer half day, full day or multi day tours. Many tours depart from Pai, and two-day rafting expeditions often take you through the main Wildlife Sanctuary of Mae Hong Son province. Most tours will include transport to and from your hotel, lunch and a number of hours of rafting. You will be given a safety briefing, life jacket, helmet and will be accompanied by an experienced guide.
