Trip Planner: Asia / Thailand / Prachuap Khiri Khan Province / Kui Buri / Nature / Khao Sam Roi Yot National Park
Popular for its rare wildlife and environment, Khao Sam Roi Yot National Park serves as a marine park filled with caves, islands, and viewpoints. The main attraction in this area is Phraya Nakhon Cave, a large cavern with a hole in the ceiling that allows sunlight to flood the cave. Look for the pavilion at the bottom, a site built during King Rama V's reign. Mid-morning is the best time to visit the cave, when the sun lights it up.

Leuke tour naar de grotten op een uur rijden van Hua Hin. Schijnt ook prima met een scooter te doen te zijn. Aankomst is erg toeristisch maar wel vriendelijk. Met een longboot varen ze je voorbij het ... more »Fun tour to the caves on a hour drive from Hua Hin. Also seems to do just fine with a scooter. Arrival is very touristy but friendly. With a long boating they get you past the first island. Thereby ' only ' one climb on and off and back on and off. Certainly a beautiful and special experience the Temple in the caves. Really only with good shoes because with slippers you chance of slipping or punches to the stones on the path. I would also advise young children or elderly people who have bad shape not to go.
We took the trail to Phraya Nakhon cave. It was tiring but the views on the way were beautiful! Don't just rush through it but take some time to look through the bushes towards the sea. We also saw a ... more »
Very good exercise walking up. You can do the long way walking over the hill or go by boat to the starting point. Cost by ship around 200 bath per couple. Negotiable. Or 40 baht as Thai
Sam Roi Yot National Park is located approximately 50 km south from the seaside resort town of Hua Hin. There are some resorts within the national park area but most people tend to stay in Hua Hin and travel to Sam Roi Yot on day excursions. The spread of the park is quite extensive, 98 km from north to south, and because of this you will need a vehicle to take in all the main attractions. Most people travelling from Hua Hin, if they aren’t on a arranged tour, will rent a motorbike for the day. Travel time from Hua Hin to Sam Roi Yot on a motorbike is approx. one hour. The English language translation of Sam Roi Yot is “mountain with 300 peaks” and as you approach the national park it certainly seems that way as the myriad of distinctive, jagged peaks will come into view. The parks highest peak is just on 605 meters. The geography of Sam Roi Yot is one of craggy, jungle covered limestone terrain. Due to the weathering over past millennia much of the surface topography is sharp underfoot. It is mainly for this reason alone it is recommended you wear good footwear, proper hiking shoes and not flip flops, as visitation to all of the attractions involves a substantial amount of hiking. The main attractions are the caves in the area but there is also a great viewpoint at the southern end of the park which gives spectacular views along the cliff line and out over the ocean. The caves and viewpoints are the main attractions of Sam Roi Yot National Park. Note: There is an entry fee for foreigners of 200 Baht for all the cave sites at Sam Roi Yot. However, you only pay the fee once for the day so if you have the energy reserves to visit more than one site, you won’t need to pay again.

Like most Thai experiences, they are bla amd never as advertised. You pay for tour with garantee of Elephants and drinking water provided. Them you have to psy extra for water and only see 2 Elephants 3 miles distance. Not just bla but Chinzee to the max.

Beautiful nature reserve! For more intrepid adventurers, you may like to take a 60-min hike on the rocky ascent to reach the Phraya Nakon Cave. Alternatively, take a 10-min ride on the long-tailed boat to swing around the coastline before making your way up to the cave by foot. Watch out for your footing as the path can be treacherous.
There are a lot of amazing views there, beautiful nature. Has many places to go. Recommend this national park! It's better to stay in this area for several days and get your own transport for looking around.
