1. From Bangkok: Khao Yai National Park Small-Group Day Trip
Start your adventure with an early pickup before beginning the 3-hour journey north-east. You’ll have a quick stop at the famous The Birder’s Lodge to grab some coffee before arriving at Khao Yai National Park. Khao Yai National Park is one of the largest national parks in Thailand and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. You’ll head down one of the many nature trails, admiring the local flora and fauna. As one of the oldest national parks in the country, you’ll find all kinds of animals living in the area, from mammals and reptiles to birds and insects. If you’re really lucky, you may just spot a herd of wild elephants nearby. After lunch, trek to Haew Suwat Waterfall and Haew Narok Waterfall, two of the park’s most picturesque bodies of water. We’ll marvel at the cool cascades, snap photos of the lush scenery, and take a quick respite before making our way back to Bangkok. For itinerary from April to May (Dry season): After lunch, follow a nature trail and walk along the winding paths, taking in the natural scenery. Look as your guide points out some of the park’s most enchanting features, and if you’re lucky, you can see some friendly creatures. After the hike, get to Nong Phak Chi Observation Tower. Climb to the top and get a bird’s eye view of the landscape below.
