Read so much about this national park so I was looking forward to it. The beauty of national park is not just on the lake itself but on the surrounding areas. The tours are pricey in my opinion, touristy for the taste of some but it's understandable considering how lovely this place is. Renting a mopped is a must to... More

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
