A good place for city dwellers to visit as it is a good place to encounter nature. We saw wild monkeys, deer and even elephants. The waterfalls are quite deep in and the path features rough terrain. The waterfalls are beautiful though a bit small...More

First of all, you have to like traffic and traffic jams. There are lots of both. The reason for the very long and very slow moving traffic to the entrance is probably people arguing about the entrance cost. Ignore the sign which suggests 40 baht...More

Most of the hikes lead you to a viewpoint where you can see over the valleys of the national park. If possible, wear breathable but long-sleeved clothing for protection and bring water. This is a beautiful place for explore nature.

In my opinion, the national park was the highlight in Khao Yai. Book a car and go to the visitor centre and pay for a guide to bring you for a short trekking through the forest. There were a few trekking routes to choose from,...More

Came shortly after lunch with the family on a Sunday and it was fairly crowded. The drive from point to point and the waterfalls is quite tiring if with a toddler but manageable. Ok for a weekend out of the city if you’re in Bangko.

I agree with the previous comments. This is a park where wildlife and scenery are the main attractions. Two years old seems a bit young. Several trails are easy but others may be too difficult.

They're wild. Your question is like asking if a random squirrel in a tree is 'treated well'. Any captive elephant made to be in close proximity to humans has been tortured, probably as a baby when it was taken from the... More
