Spent 3 days in Khao Sok national park. Went on a lake trip which included lunch, canoeing, trekking and swimming through a cave. Nice reggae bar (everywhere in Thailand has one!) free drink as it was my birthday, bonus. Pawn's restaurant was by far the best place to eat - amazing thai food. Night safari was ok, if you like...

After travelling to over 50 countries and endless national parks this is a favourite. You travel through an inland lake surrounded by mountains and green blue fresh water to arrive at your floating bamboo hut. The dawn is breathtaking as the sun comes over the mountains. Be sure to take a morning dip to cut the heat and enjoy the... More

I am not that familiar with the whole of Khao Sok National Park but wanted to take about Chieuw Larn Lake. There seem to be several different spellings for it which doesn't help. In my opinion, this is the PRETTIEST PLACE IN THAILAND! I love it. Also, the lake is not that touristy. Most people seem to drive straight by... More

Going out to Khao Sok National Park was one of the most beautiful and peaceful adventures of the Thailand trip. We took a boat ride out to stay the night at floating bungalows away from any sort of hustle and bustle. The water was beautiful, the sights were straight from a postcard, and we saw several monkeys.

Read so much about this national park so I was looking forward to it. The beauty of national park is not just on the lake itself but on the surrounding areas. The tours are pricey in my opinion, touristy for the taste of some but it's understandable considering how lovely this place is. Renting a mopped is a must to... More

Khao Sok was a wonderful break from hectic Bangkok - couldn't be more opposite. The lake is serene, the views are gorgeous, and the floating bungalows? One of the most unique and wonderful places I have ever stayed. Where else does your front door open up right on a lake smack in the middle of a national park? The bungalows... More

After being in crowded Ao Nang and Koh Phi Phi for few weeks, this place was just perfect. Beautiful scenery.
