I have asked another version of this previously, but we have done research and made reservations, and so I hope that my questions will be clearer than before. We will be on the MV Oktavia which will arrive at Taplamu Pier at 17:30 on 26 Feb 2014. We will need various transports and I am wondering if using "The Boss" or others would be better or would renting a car be better?
Here is the itinerary:
1. Leave Pier and go to Khao Sok NP, staying at Hotel Khao Sok (2 nights)
2. Go to Ratchaprapa Dam on 27 Feb and hire a boat (should we do this privately or rely on the hotel or tour company???)
3. On 28 Feb.: Drive to hotel/resort near airport (hopefully via one or more of the temples along the way)
Would getting a taxi/driver even be possible for these legs of our trip? We enjoy self-driving, but don't know if it is possible in a country that uses a different language/alphabet than we know. All advice would be appreciated.
