Escape the stifling smog of Bangkok in one of Thailand's most nature-rich regions. Khao Yai National Park is overflowing with attractions and has unsurprisingly been awarded UNESCO World Heritage status. Book a Khao Yai resort through us and bask in the beautiful scenery and wildlife of the region.
Tourists from across Thailand and around the globe come to Khao Yai National Park to experience one of the highlights of the country. With over 250 wild elephants, 200 species of bird, deer, bears, tigers and even leopards, the National Park is the habitat for a huge variety of animals and many of these can be seen by visitors. With an average temperature of approximately 23 Celsius, the cool climate is ideal for hiking and exploring the huge area of land. This includes the highest mountain in the region, Khao Rom which reaches a peak of 1351 metres. Budding photographers will find plenty of opportunities to take some fantastic shots and one of the best places to capture on film is Haew Suwat. This is the dramatic waterfall which was featured in the Hollywood movie, The Beach. Cycle around the National Park to cover more ground and see the thick forests and grasslands.
To make the most of this part of Thailand we recommend staying in a Khao Yai hotel for at least a couple of nights. A popular route to the National park is through the backpacker town of Pak Chong, located north of Khao Yai. Alternatively, if approaching from Bangkok, it's possible to enter via the southern Prachinburi province.Image from somchai kanchanasut
