It's better to start early in the morning and be done by midday because it rains in the afternoon. Lots of bambu, monkeys and waterfalls. We also saw an Eagle 🦅. But its not easy to see animals.

Plenty of car parking, 300bht per person to get in. The trail is well trodden and quite walkable but it’s hilly from the start and totally unsuitable for either wheelchairs or pushchairs. I’m not really sure if you should be taking small children on foot...More

Honeymoon Itinerary - Bangkok - Khao Sok - Ko Phi PHI (6 Replies)
Starting to plan our honeymoon for March 2017. We will be there for a total of 11 nights. We are flying in business class so hoping jet lag isn't a factor and we can start exploring right away. We land in Bangkok at noon on day 1 and will stay there for just 1 night before departing. Right now I am thinking of splitting the remainder of the time between Khao Lak (with time in Khao Sok National Park) and Ko Phi Phi. If these end up being the 3 places we pick, is there an order that...More

Phi Phi presents the most difficulty with such a relatively short overall stay as it is furthest south and involves the longest transfers to and from whether at the beginning or end of your stay. So either Bangkok -> Phuket (just over an hour flight) -> Khao Lak (just over an hour taxi) -> Khao Sok (just over an hour by taxi if staying near Khao Sok Village where most accommodation is located or 2 hours taxi plus long-tailed boat if staying in a floating raft house on Cheow Lan...More

Wildlife on my doorstep? (30 Replies)
Can anyone recommend a place to stay where wildlife is easily viewable? I mean free roaming wildlife, not tamed or 'owned'. I did have the Golden Buddha Resort in mind but it's closed during my stay. I've decided on Khao Lak for the week and am planning on taking a couple of trips out to see the turtle conservation centre & also Khao Sok National Park. Never been before and will be travelling there in the first week of September on my own.

Khao Lak town's are about Hotels and Pools, not the location for wildlife spotting except some Kingfishers, Egrets, snakes and spiders etc on the river in Bang Niang. Khao Sok National Park is about the views and scenery, again not the best National Park in Thailand for viewing wildlife, not bad for Birds though. Lak Ram National Park, was hard to spot anything except some nice large spiders. The turtle sanctuary was about 10 concrete and tiled tanks filled with several species of turtles of...More
