FAQ

Who will meet me on arrival?

Our MT Sobek representative at Bangkok Suvarnabhumi International Airport.

Do I need a visa for Thailand?

No. American citizens do not need a visa for Thailand but must have 6-months validity on their passports.

Is the beach at Angsana Laguna a private beach?

No. All beaches in Thailand are public. Angsana Laguna is located on the white sandy beach of Bang Tao, shared only with other Laguna hotels.

Will my children be able to see animals during the safari and in Khao Sok National Park?

Yes, they will be able to see animals during the safari, as it is an open-air zoo. For Khao Sok, the probability is high, but because the animals are wild, it's never certain.

I'm concerned about safety. How many guides will accompany our trip?

On our family adventures with children ages 6 and up, we will have 1 guide per every 4 guests, which is twice as many as a normal MT Sobek trip!
