What people are saying about Khao Sok National Park

I loved everything about this trip and it was such a breath-taking place to visit. The van that picked us up was comfortable, the boat ride was super scenic, we had staff attending to our needs, the guide was super knowledgeable about caves, lunch was delicious and the resort 500Rai was just so relaxing. I really enjoyed the trek and soon after jumping into the cool emerald water for a swim. This was the highlight of our Khao Lak trip.

I really recommend this activity for a day in the national park! This is the opportunity to take advantage of it to 1000% through many activities: trekking in the jungle, bamboo rafting to visit a cave, boat to discover the park, swimming pool also to relax at the end of the day and canoe if we want it. We had a great guide Miss Pooky, who made us enjoy a great day! Thanks again !

Lovely day in Khao Sok: hike in the rainforest with a skilled and sympathetic local guide, boat trip on the stunningly beautiful Ratchaprapha Lake ... and then a swim in the lake after a long hot day - wow!

An incredible experience, a perfect day between boat trip, small trek, bamboo boat, cave, delicious meal, swimming pool, canoeing ... nothing to say! Perfect

Incredibly beautiful nature and lots of background information. Must do!
