We took the overnight trip to the lake that is offered in a lot of hotels and travel agents in khao sok. We were staying in las orquideas and joined a group of about 14 people from other hotels. It takes about two hours or so to get to your bungalow from khao sok via a minibus and long tail... More

It's well worth doing this trip from khao sok. The trekking trough the cave was amazing! Also the beautiful lakes and the floading houses were incredible. We saw many animals in the morning by boat. Our guide was the best, his nickname is mogli and you'll have an absolutely funny time with him.

The National park is an amazing place to visit for a few days with a host of different activities to enjoy. There are plenty of places to stay across a wide price range so there is something for everyone. The warning is about getting there. If you arrive at Suratthani airport with the intention of traveling direct to Khao Sok,... More

Stunning scenery and better signposted than a lot of places in Thailand. For people wishing to access the park independently the entrance fee is B300 each and for that you can only really access one trail through the park (although it's well worth doing!) The first 3 kms is a straightforward and slightly tame baked mud path and then you... More

We visited Khao Sok as part of a ten day Thailand tour taking us from Bangkok down the peninsula and onto a couple islands. The stop in Khao Sok was unbelievable. We stayed on the lake in raft houses which required a longboat trip to get to. We also went for a swim near the rocks and tried for some... More

We visited here last month and our opinion upon finishing the days tour was one of disappointment. Following a 1hr 30 min journey from Khao Sok to the lake we then had a long tail boat ride for an hour or so across the lake. Some of the scenery was interesting. We then arrived at the floating village which really... More
