  • An awesome day out. TNP were quick to respond and to suggest an itinerary which worked with our timeframe. We had a great day exploring the park with Mr J including 2 waterfalls, a short trek through ...  more »
  • The Khao Yai is a very beautiful National Park with great biodiversity. It pays to book a tour or rent a car at the size of the National Park. We have made a whole day tour with Green Leaf. Our tour guide has to show us many animals, including also Gibbons and barking deer. We unfortunately could discover no elephants. The National Park has to offer also beautiful waterfalls and lookout points next to the animals. The Khao Yai is worth a visit in any case! But, since I have visited the Khao Sok in the South as well as the Khao Yai, I must admit that I found a little bit nicer to Khao Sok. If you have only time for one of the two I would make the Khao Sok, but with the Khao Yai you will do nothing wrong anyway :)

  • We went to Khao Yai national park yesterday from the north entrance and overall had a good day there until the rain came 2 hours later. You could easily see a huge chunk of the park if you give yourse...  more »

  • Oldest national park in Thailand and really nice. Take a tour with one of the tour organizers that are around. Entrance fee for tourists is 400bath per person. You can hike a lot and see many different animals. If lucky even elephants but that's really lucky, since there are about 200 elephants in more than 2000 km2 park landscape. Go there on.the dry season. It's.easoer to find and see animals then. If you don't like spiders, be aware that there are really big spiders, which do not harm anyone...they are just big.
  • Thailand's oldest national park and still one of the best if you plan things properly. Being only 3 - 4 hours from Bangkok it's easy enough to access but due to many of the sightseeing attractions being spread far apart the best way to see it is by using your own private transportation. For the waterfalls the best time is the rainy season when there are a lot less visitors. NOTE: during the rainy season there are lots of leaches about so take a salt shaker with you. If you have a leach burrowed into your flesh simply sprinkle some salt on it and by the count of five it will have pulled out of your flesh. Works every time.

  • It's a 3h drive away from Bangkok and definitely worth a visit if you are a nature lover and would like to take a break away from city life. Despite it's views, I think the park is more famous for it's animal spotting. Personally I feel it's necessary to have your own transportation to explore it. Hitch riding is possible but difficult to explore the whole park.
  • Beautiful natural reserves. I admire how people protect nature here, very clean and well organized. Spent time here only one day so we just went to the waterfall. Will come back in the future for camping
  • Very nice national park close to Bangkok. 150km from Bangkok and you are there under two hours. Many wild animals and beautiful waterfall. 😁
