  • 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
  • You will be the one with nature here. There temperature are usually cool. If you lucky you will meet with some wild animal such as elephant, deer etc. In raining season, some waterfall will be closed. Please check it before go.
  • Love hiking here. You might find elephants walking around on the road. I would stay away. There is also a crocodile trial, not open during rainny season
