Khao Yai National Park - Review
Not far from Bangkok, the Khao Yai National Park has set itself away from the hustle and bustle of the city. It is a home to an amazing variety of wildlife including Asian Elephants and tigers. The wildlife of Thailand finds an excellent haven of refuge in this place. The biodiversity of the place is certainly surprising and a visit to the National Park is sure to acquaint you with the natural wealth that the country is blessed with. There are many lodges throughout the park. If you want to spend an extensive period of time over here, then book a lodge and explore the beautiful waterfalls, diverse wildlife, gibbons and deer.

Khao Yai National Park, Bangkok Reviews
Aside from feeling discriminated for paying 400 baht instead of the 40 bhat that Thai people pay (even if you're working, living or whatever in Thailand, just because you're from another country you pay 10 times more!), the park is beautiful and well maintained. You can see some animals, flora and fauna and breathe clean air. The ideal thing is to spend a night there and do some excursions and avoid the holidays and the weekend. There are some restaurants inside the park, toilets and you can even get gas for the motorcycle in case of emergency.
Went here as a part of a study abroad trip. Saw a wild elephant within the first 15 minutes we were at our place, and saw deer every morning. Macaques stole our breakfast off our porch, but it made for a great story. Very diverse landscape which makes it a BEAUTIFUL area to go hiking and birdwatching. Would recommend to any wildlife or botany enthusiast!
Nature's lovers' place to relax, admire the scenary, recharge, and breathe in all the fresh air you want! A point to note, you may want to purchase anti-leech socks at the souvenir shop. After the hiking, you can also keep the socks for souvenir too. The socks can also serve as covers against mosquitoes too.
Beautiful and natural scenes, very worth walking and driving. Kong Kaew waterfall is too small, though. The national park is halfway from Nakorn Nayok and Nakorn Rachasrima. So, it can be easily accessed. However, entry fee for foreigner is very expensive.
This is the closest real nature's park close to Bangkok. This is a very good spot to see wildlife but also a very popular place for locals for one day stops, especially close to visitor center area. Park is very well maintained. It has a good visitor center with exhibits, maps,gifts. You have decent accommodations in the park. But you have much more comfortable options less than 1km from park's entrance. Park contains many trails: some are simple and short and don't require guide, unless you need one to help you spot animals. Park roads are almost all paved and are extensive. I saw many monkeys: gibbons and macaques, hornbills birds and many others. There's a wild elephant population in the park. But although I stayed 4 days to explore the park, I didn't see any. I heard one on a trail but deep in the jungle you don't see far. On some roads far from visitor center we saw tons of fresh elephant poop. Maybe, with one day o more, we could have seen some. It's a question of patience and luck. I saw elephants later, in Kuiburi national park.
