  • What a beautiful place! The limestone mountains are just so spectacular to take in. I recommend staying right on the lake in floating bungalows, pretty cool experience!
  • Fantastic landscape. The boat rentals can be a little difficult to sort out though. A enjoyable day around the lake though.
  • Boat trip was nice, the views are great. The lake itself is not super clean - you can (rarely) see plastic bottles and other stuff in the water that makes this place not a 100% unique and clean as you might have expected. Your cell phone will not work there.
  • Amazing sceneries and also the cave tour was very nice and different experience . Jungle trek was fine.
  • Worth the visit! We drove a rental car from our hotel in khao lak to there (2h), roads are nice but be careful at night it can be very dark with little light on the road. The tour itself is 2h and cost only 300 bath if you don't mind sharing with other people. Beautiful landscape.
