I planned to go walk around Khao Sok National Park without a tour or guide, figuring we could just follow the path on the map. When we got to the ticket counter, first we were told that there are no student prices as I had seen online. Then, we were told that we can't walk further than point #2 on... More

Amazing elephants and monkey temple was ok, only thing that made the temple worth a visit was the monkeys, our elephant guide was amazing and very in tune with the elephants, the canoe trip was a little boring, we booked with our holiday rep for a day package and I suppose you could say it was an ok deal. Lovely... More

Stay in floating bungalows. Booked through a travel group and stayed on floating bungalows in the middle of the park. The water so so clear and beautiful. We even went cliff diving and saw monks out there! Having some drinks and not falling off the dock was impossible. I have this place forever scarred on my shin and have no... More

Beautiful natural rainforest and surrounding area Well worth a visit for its nature. Shame about the dam flooding large areas of the rain forest. But there is still plenty to see. Take the time to stop in the forest and take in the wild life. Recommended reading for a visit is Waterfalls & Gibbon Calls - exploring Khao Sok National... More

Fantastic experience! So much fun from start to finish. Met a few nice people on the tour. The day involved a boat day to the floating village where the locals lived and all huts floated on the water. You could also stay in a hut overnight. The opportunity to go for a swim was allowed and the traditional Thai lunch... More

This is the place I fell in love with by Beautiful Thai girlfriend. Totally taken by surprise with its beauty, swimming in the pitch black dead of night, kayaking in the morning sunrise, mist coming off the water, lovely food, lovely hotel host, party in the evening would I go back, you bet. Just one thing I found distasteful and... More

We have just returned from 2 days on Cheow Man Lake in Khao Sok National Park. It is a must do for any nature lovers visiting Thailand. Try to arrange a stay in a floating raft house. Swimming in the lake and waking up to the sounds of gibbons is am unforgettable experience.

So we stayed at Khao Sok for 2 days and while it's not exactly what you'd call densely populated by the wild ones, it's quite nice. Take a half day tour with a good guide and enjoy some trekking and cold lake dip and hot coffee sip in the middle of the jungle. Go tubing and enjoy the bumpy rides.... More

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...
