Visited the incredible Khao Sok National Park and stayed at the charming Khao Sok Jungalows, one of the first bungalow resorts on the left hand side as you enter the main strip of Khao Sok leading up to the park entrance. Perfect for backpackers, couples and solo trips, even adventurous families. The staff are great, so flexible, friendly and helpful.... More

So disillusioned by this park! To start with its clearly succumbed far too much to the temptation of tourism at the expense of the natural environment. Quite a 'strip' developing as the village, bright flashing lights everywhere when you are seeking the peace if tranquillity of the rainforest - so inappropriate. The walks you can do independently are a waste... More

Waterfalls are ropey to be honest. We couldn't go farther without guide. Trips to the lake just in the morning, no option to get there after 1 pm (privet boat over 3000b), flower was closed. Also, I twisted my ancle during trekking. I have to say that It wasn't out the best Thai trip. Many monkeys.

Stopped off here on the way down to Khao Lak. A few wrong turns added to the adventure but this park has everything, waterfalls lakes, trekking eco lodges and some incredible scenery. You can spend a few hours passing through or spend a few nights in one of the many lodges. We ate at the Thai Garden the food was... More

Great to see "the oldest rainforest in the world!". A must if in Thailand. Be sure to take a good guide, I loved this area!

If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of Phuket and Krabi, this is a nice place to chill out. The jungle is remnants of very old virgin rainforest. We spent two days in Khao Sok Treetop Resort. All resorts in Khao Sok seem expensive, so no back packer prices. The first day we went on Win's... More

It was a very clean area, the lake Ratchaprapha is huge and without garbage floating about. Things are a bit expensive in the area, and I'm not sure why. I'll provide a review of a resort we stayed at soon. I hope to return, as i believe there is a lot to see.

In case it is your first jungle trekking, it is interesting. In case you have experienced trekking in places like Borneo or Indonesia, you will feel a deep difference ...and it id probably better if you choice an alternative sight... Moreover, the 300 bath entrance ticket seems to me really exaggerated!

This was our second visit to Khao Sok. First time was 10 years ago and much have changed since then. A lot more tourists, more regulated, and harder to spot animals. But still well worth a visit! The surroundings are amazing, local food is great and the hikes are fun.
