I'm heading to Thailand and Cambodia for two weeks and was interested in checking out the park, but because there's so much to do and so little time, I wanted to make sure it was worth it. And if so, what would you recommend doing and how many days/nights there?
Khao Sok National Park is one of the most beautiful places in Thailand and we go with our children every year and never get tired of it. It is easy to get to, great roads and driving, not crowded and one of the most beautiful national parks in Thailand with its ancient evergreen rainforest, huge limestone mountains and valleys, beautiful lakes and waterfalls and amazing caves and wildlife.
It is a great place for elephant trekking but the best experience we have there is camping on the lake in the floating raft houses. It's a great place to just get out into the jungle and chill. Eat some good food and have a few Singha in the fresh air.
A minimum of 3 nights if you like camping in the jungle, you will have a great time. Quite the opposite of the hustle and bustle of Bangkok. about 8 years ago
Yes well worth the trip, a little out of the way but that's why it is special. I spent only 3 days here last year and can't wait to go again. They say it has oldest evergreen rainforest in the world & it has heaps of things to see like limestone mountains, spectacular deep valleys, amazing lakes, interesting caves and wild animals. You will feel like Tarzan if you visit this place. BTW - I get hotel rooms cheap for Thailand here http://www.ihotelthai.com/ over 7 years agoAnswered by Tracy Jones via WorldNomads.com
