It's really a difderent experience in Thailand then the famous luxury beaches. It's a peacefull area, full of vegetation and wildlife. Nothing to worry about, however. There are numerous tours offered with guides, which ensure a safe positive experience through the wild. You can choose relaxing easy activities, even masage, or extreme loving in the forest, survival for 2 weeks.... More

We book one day trip from our resort to visit the National Park on the lake. It was an unforgettable day, The lake is beautiful and so great. Arrived to the floating bungalows after 1 hour and 30 minuts on the boat, we really are at middle of the jungle, we can hear the gibbons here and overthere... We explored... More

So we were quite surprised when after lunch our guide asked us to leave our camera and any sensitive belongings behind... we started hiking... entered the cave... and went neck-deep in the water ! A real cave exploration... with... More

We had a program in Khao Sok National park for 2 days with night in floating bungalow and this was the best experience and most great views I have seen in Thailand. The nature on lake is superb! Cliffs around you, jungle, monkeys, birds... If you want to be in peace, relax this is the best place but if you... More

Khao Sok national park is divided into two main areas 1) the forest, and 2) the lake. I visited the lake part with a beautiful green waterway (an outcome of a dam construction). Visitor can make a day boat trip, but the main attractions can't be done in a day. I am strongly recommend to overnight at one of many... More

I liked the fact to be in the middle of the forest. The cons about the park: nothing really special about the forest. The during the day, it is very hot so the only animals we saw were a few grey monkeys and luckily 3 dusky langur monkeys, different kinds of geckos, a snake and that was it pretty much.

Visited the incredible Khao Sok National Park and stayed at the charming Khao Sok Jungalows, one of the first bungalow resorts on the left hand side as you enter the main strip of Khao Sok leading up to the park entrance. Perfect for backpackers, couples and solo trips, even adventurous families. The staff are great, so flexible, friendly and helpful.... More

So disillusioned by this park! To start with its clearly succumbed far too much to the temptation of tourism at the expense of the natural environment. Quite a 'strip' developing as the village, bright flashing lights everywhere when you are seeking the peace if tranquillity of the rainforest - so inappropriate. The walks you can do independently are a waste... More
