I had to write a review for the Kho Sok jungle huts, simply because it was an unforgettable experience.
We arrived in Kho Sok and pulled up the the entrance, it seemed to look pretty cool. When we were checking in they were surprised by how much we'd paid (400bht) So they offered us a 'better' room.
We were taken all the way down to the river side, and showed into our room. We went in and it was tiny, and quite frankly it looked like a garden shed you have on stilts.
Being in the jungle I really wasn't that fussed, not even by the suspicious looking creature that was living the a small hole above the door to the bathroom.
The main excitement of our stay was after we came back form buying some supplies.
As we walked up to our door, we thought we heard falling fruit, As my friend turned around, I see a huge tail. Suddenly huge vicious monkeys come flying from every angle and block us in our room. Trying to open both doors with turning the door knobs.
The feral creatures were attacking the bars on the windows (now we know why there are bars on the windows) Even with some shouting, all we got was gritted teeth and what I can only describe as a grin..
Now you may think that was the worst part, oh no....
Eventually we got out of the room, and ran to the reception, because quite frankly we were a little scared. We were laughed at and made to feel very uneasy and as though we were making too much fuss. One of the ladies realized we weren't messing around and said she'd deal with it.
As we were walking back to our room, she tells us to wait for a moment. She walked away and came back with a HUGE slingshot, and then told us 'when I tell you to run, you run' (The same lady who told us that the monkeys aren't dangerous...)
So in short, we ended up changing to another room further away from the monkeys, which was actually even cheaper than the first room and much much nicer.
If you want to be terrorised by monkeys then by all means, stay in the river view huts.
