I traveled two weeks in Thailand, going to Bangkok, Koh Phangan, Koh Phi Phi and Phuket. The day spent in Khao Sok National Park stands out as the best. The water felt great and we stayed on floating bungalows. Amazing views and a completely different atmosphere than anything I've experienced.

Stunning part of the country, a chance to get up close to nature in the Koh Sok forests. Decent accommodation around the national park and transport to and from koh sok is easily arrange.

Booked threw Thomson and was stopping at the Cape Panwa Hotel which meant it was a three & a half hour drive there and because you get further away as the day goes on it was a four hour drive back. So check out travel time before you book Thomson holiday shop never told us travel time and its way... More

Have been several times to this NP the last years. The easy way is with the longtail on the lake to raft houses. Don´t complain if you get a bit wet when it´s windy. Nice small raft houses, great swim. nice trails, for example to the cave. sometimes a bit busy. But if you ask for a special guide you... More

The lake has really amazing nature to sail around on. Some of the hikes, like "the bat cave" is only available part of the year. Be sure to pick warm weather and a day with low wind, as you otherwise can get wet in the boats. We have not succeeded on finding websites with the lake accommodations, other than "Treetops"...

If you are looking for the enchanting Cheow Lan Lake aka Rajjaprabha Dam Reservoir or also known as Ratchaprapha Lake, you can go to the lake, by skipping this lifeless national park. Not reading into detail properly, I set out to Khao Sok National Park, stayed a night at one of the accommodation there, fed my blood to the mosquitoes... More

The pristine jungle, limestone karst hills and beautiful Raijaprapa lake with its many islands are not to be missed. We took a long tail boat to one of the islands then trekked to a cave filled with eerie stalactites. There are a number of raft houses to stop off for a meal, swimming or kayaking. A night safari with a... More

I've only just come back from Thailand, and my last place to visit was Khao Sok national park. I was lucky enough to find accommodation at Jungalows 'Monkey Mansion' which made my stay a complete success. Bastian and his crew are always available to give advice, to find the best guide for your trekking, to organise the lake trip for... More

Not far from the place we stayed overnight our driver stopped and we saw canoes waiting near the road. The local guide carried the canoe down to the water and off we were. There was not much communication possible as we do not speak Thai and the guides' English was (very) poor. Nevertheless we were able to communicate and he... More
