We stayed inside Khao Yai National Park (about 3 hours drive from Bangkok) very close to the visitors centre in a rented house. The house was basic with no aircon but a small fan. The house was around 100-200m walk from the main visitor centre....More

Over the next 2 weeks you need to really tie this down. While your question lists a lot of places with in your thought bubble...some will not make the cut. These type of trips are a bit like the Movie "planes, trains and automobiles. what is great for one part will not work for others. If you are in Bangkok and want to go to Northern Thailand.... I would fly.More than likely into Chiang Rai ,then take the Bus over to Chiang Mai.This is because you can fly south to more places. Not...More

Khao Yai - leeches? (0 Replies)
Hi, some friends and I are planning a trip to Khao Yai National Park at the beginning of August this year. It's supposed to be semi-rainy at that time and we're a little worried about leeches. That being said, we're planning on going with a tour company and most of the walks will be an hour to two. Can anyone advise on footwear?
