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.

If you stay in one of the resorts in the Khao Sok Region, be sure that you take a day-tour through the national park. It is absolutely stunning: the lake with its limestone rocks, the jungle, the caves and the floating houses/restaurant. Easy walking, save for kids of 4+ years. We also booked a night-tour with a guide through the... More

we had a short visit here and were unprepared for the adventure that befell us but thats what I like. Every national park and protected area deserves patronage and, hence I took my family there. We met a young lady who told us to see the nearby water fall so we embarked upon that. Apparently "nearby" is a relative term.... More

When you have had enough shopping, temples and beaches Khao Sok is a great place to go to unwind in spectacular scenery. After arriving by public transport from Ko Samui (took about 5 - 6 hrs) we stayed in the pleasant tourist village of Khao Sok. We then booked an overnight tour (through the guest house) so we could stay... More

Khao Sok National Park covers a range of areas and activities. From my perspective in this review, it pertains to only Rajprapha Dam and the reservoir behind it. Access to the dam is by road only, and it is roughly equidistant from either Surat Thani in the east, or Takuapa in the west, off Route 401 at Phanom. The dam... More

We spent a few hours walking through Khao Sok national park with a local guide. We were followed by a group of monkeys (who showed us their love making skills), we had a swim in a beautiful natural pool and visited a couple of waterfalls. It was all free (guide arranged through hotel) and would recommend anyone to have a... More

If you heading from Phuket to Ko Samui, you must see Khao Sok National Park. If you head towards the main Khao Sok Park entrance, remember to take your swimming stuff, there's a nice cool pool area at the start and end of your walk. Visit at least one of the many waterfalls, really beautiful place. Very quite, remote and... More
