    An ideal place to get to know the Thai jungle and one of the few Park organized almost as that you can visit in the West. Well-marked roads, roads that you come to the most interesting places, several waterfalls espectacularesy able to see wildlife (monkeys, snakes, deer, and hopefully I have not had any of my two visits, elephants). Very careful with leeches, totally recommended buy protectors that sold in the shop from the visitor center. It costs 400 baths to tourists but it is worthwhile.

    Very nice park. My tip is to get an extra day to the park. At your hotel you rent a taxi for a day. About 1800 baht. There are shorter walks that you can make easily without a guide and in a day you really can't see everything. In addition, you have a much higher chance to by an extra day (more) monkeys, deer and elephants. The entrance fee for a farang is 10 times as high as for the Thais. At a 2nd day you pay so again the full whack entrance .....

    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. 😁
