    The national park is a nice place to visit if you drive because to get to the visitor centre it takes around 30min drive. We were lucky that we spotted 1 elephant in the day. During the night safari t...  more »

    Very large national park. You can enjoy the wilderness epic is about 3 hours by car from Bangkok. Entrance fee is 10 x difference in Thailand and foreigners. It was like guide in place and ice cream shops. Leaving it there with single-mindedly in the mountain road. And see elephants jump out notes billboards on the road. Hope to see elephants in the wild, I-and was a way of hoping. Was after all, investigating the wild elephants, deer and monkeys are encountered. Never had strolling near the 停mari (where parking spaces and an information Board is) in place of the field like, white Gibbons Gibbons who cries sound like echoes, usually if had heard only the chirping of birds in this scene, so it was fresh! The location very soothing sight to 違i目 and listen in a Zoo monkey cries as mountains and fields. I went to the waterfall and suspension bridge. And tries to see the waterfalls, mysterious atmosphere. Close to the road to the falls on the stairs slippery so caution is to alight from the car. You could enjoy also the fashionable shops of nearby restaurants, hotels, and chocolate while cars migration as a wilderness experience. Cool comfortable location. (In a short-sleeved clothes are okay)

    Oldest national park in Thailand and really nice. Take a tour with one of the tour organizers that are around. Entrance fee for tourists is 400bath per person. You can hike a lot and see many different animals. If lucky even elephants but that's really lucky, since there are about 200 elephants in more than 2000 km2 park landscape. Go there on.the dry season. It's.easoer to find and see animals then. If you don't like spiders, be aware that there are really big spiders, which do not harm anyone...they are just big.

    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

    Very nice national park close to Bangkok. 150km from Bangkok and you are there under two hours. Many wild animals and beautiful waterfall. 😁
