We simply loved this place. We visit 2 caves, did kayake and enjoy this nature. Amazing.
Although we discovered that after we left the cabins, people start preparing rooms for next customers and we realised that they were not changing bed sheets from the cabins...More
Khao Sok NP gave us a one in a lifetime experience: we had the luck to see flowering Rafflesia’s.
Our guides told us that there was a possibility to see them, the track to the place where they were supposed to be, was very challenging....More
This National Park was, for me, difficult to get to. It took, from the Surat Thani train station (9 hours from BKK), 1 car + 2 minivans to get to the minibus terminal at the entrance of the road leading into the Park. An agency...More
Beautiful nature, dense plant life. The dam/lake trip was definitely worthwhile although expensive, as others have commented. The park layout is not very user-friendly if you would like to hike. The provided map is useless and once you hike 3.5 km to the headquarters, a...More
We stayed in khao sok and I hiked in the part one afternoon from the town. The first part of the trail, 3k, is a hilly dirt road. After that is I’d single track trails that wind and change through the forest. It’s easy to...More
Booked a day trip from Khao Lak to have a jungle walk and bamboo rafting. Excellent value for money at 2200 THB per person. Jungle walk was amazing with a guide for 3 hrs. I hurt my knee and first aid kit was available in...More
We took two short unguided hikes. The first hike was a circuit with concrete paths covered in leaves and concrete steps that were rotten in places. We did not see any other visitors on this path, but strangely we didn’t see much wildlife either. We...More
FYI, there are more reviews on the lake tour under “Cheow Lan Dam (Ratchaprapa Dam). I booked the 1 day lake tour through my hotel. Overall it was a very fun day but not an excellent day. We spent about 2.5 hours of the day...More
Hi, you can also rent a nice stream--side chalet, for a few hundred baht, with garden and pool. just next to the park entrance (check Google maps and Trip reviews), then take a day hike on your own or with local guides... 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 Lake) - Phi...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
