We hired a motorcycle from Cha am beach and looking for things to do.

This place is easy enough to get once in you we parked near the office and walked over the bridge.

It was free to park and free to get in. As soon as we started walking we saw the gibbons which was amazing. We had a walk around and saw some birds, we think great white Egret and a erm...

We used the toilet on the way out which was again free and it even had running water.

It’s nice to see happy animals in Thailand for a change.

Bring your own toilet roll, water to drink and plenty of mosquitoe spray.

Yes- it is not well maintained and the toilets didn't even have water, but what a wonderful place to be near gibbons that aren't in cages in a zoo. We went about 11am today and were the only ones there yet again. Turn left after the toilets and sit and listen to the gibbons singing. As they are curious creatures they will make their way towards you, showing off their acrobatic skills and sometimes doing their ridiculous running along the path. This place is an oasis between 2 main roads with no visitors and a place to chill while being entertained.

We visited this Forest with friends to view and feed the wild monkeys. It is well laid out with good footpaths signed with distances so you can walk as much or little as you please.
Gets you away from the hustle and bustle of Cha Am and Hau Hin

This is a bit of a walk in the heat of the day..and requires crossing an overpass. The park is a really peaceful place to roam around. There is a small number of Gibbon's who call the park home..about 5. They will find you ..I was near the exercise area and they dropped out of the trees to say hello. I think if it was a large group or a lot of noise they would have kept away. Nature lovers or people wanting to get away from it all would like this place. Trails are marked in Thai and English.

Decided to do a little walking away from the beach, and found ourselves here (on our rented scooters). Nice and peaceful walks through the forest, but not much else, sadly. Everything looked a bit run-down, uncared for. It could be a really nice place with a little effort. At least is was cool under the shade of the trees.

My wife and I went to the forest park as it was an easy walk from our hotel.
The park is quite large with lots of footpaths and a cycle lane for those who have a bike.
We had been there about 20 minutes before eventually seeing a black gibbon crashing through a large tree.
Astounding walk round the park you can hear the gibbons calling.
We saw a couple of black gibbons and a golden gibbons. So nice to see them in the wild.
Worth a visit

I visited around 10am for a cycle ride, it was quiet with few people and I was fortunate enough to encounter the gibbons. They were swinging around in the trees about me. This is a small nature reserve with a proper cycle path through it and an outside gym area.

Visited this park with my boyfriend and two friends. We heard there were monkeys based on other reviews but unfortunately we didn’t see any when we went (4:30pm). It may be better to go earlier in the afternoon. Overall very pretty. There’s a running trail and outdoor equipment you can use. If you enjoy working out it’s a great place to go for a walk/jog/run. We didn’t stay long after we couldn’t find monkeys but wished we would’ve had time to go another day for a run. Check it out!

We loved the drive here as we saw a monitor lizard and many monkeys. We really enjoyed walking around and my son and wife went to the viewpoints and said they were amazing. Will definitely return. And it was free.
