Did a 2D1N tour here which includes camping overnight. It's a massive and beautiful park. We saw a lot of creatures but sadly didn't manage to see any wild elephants upclose. Was looking for a quiet retreat surrounded by nature and this really did the trick. Our park ranger was a very friendly and experienced guide.

A one day tour from Bangkok about 2.5 hours From Bangkok taking in a fresh foods market..better than iit sounds, a oxen cart ride, lunch at a quirky little kitchen..very nice, a walk to a waterfall in the national park and an elephant ride through a river. This tour is along day but great for seeing some of the Thailand... More

Feel relax when you are in National Park Khao Yai. There is an animal night sightseeing at night. Or you can have a camping here.

A great day's visit to Khao Yai with Jay from @khaoyaitrekking (fb). A really enjoyable visit and an opportunity to appreciate some of the birds and wildlife of the park. Jay can be trusted to look after you and I think he could adjust the tour to fit all levels. It is a natural park, so there aren't trained monkeys... More

Presume you have your own transportation and like being thorough at what you do. Presume also that you really only want to devote one day to the Park, then our self-guided tour should help your planning. Preplanning will be rewarded. Khao Yai, the Big Mountain, is a must for any Park enthusiast. It may be the busiest park, so try... More

Khao Yai is well worth a visit, especially to see and hear the wonderful white handed gibbons. The walks are amazing, especially the Orchid Trail. Downside is there is no information, no books on the wildlife and knowledge is limited. We visited in January, which is Chinese New Year, and it was exceptionally busy. The information centres and camp sites... More

What a treasure for Thailand. So many things to see and do here. I saw a lot of wildlife and would have liked more time for bird watching. I had a guide who was more into wildlife and less interested in the birds. I missed the waterfall but I heard from some friends from Scotland that it was very beautiful.... More

Went here and was extremely disappointed.... Took the "night safari" which consisted of sitting freezing in the back of a van, with the guide shining a light into the bushes and seen NOTHING!.. It feels very unprofessional from the outset.. The park facilities are run down. We had a plate of cold food served by sour faced locals who really... More

There are many ways to enjoy Kaho Yai National Park, either by going in a rented car, by bike or with a guide. The most important thing is to not rush through this magnificent park. If you are lucky you will encounter various wild life; many have seen elephants, deer, monitors and monkeys. If you are in the area or... More

Feb 2017 - a quick visit including the half-day tour to see the bats (4 million at dusk) and a day tour/safari if the national park. We did the half day first and we're simply blown away / awe inspired by the bats. Wowser!! The national park was a full day. Compared to Africa, a little less professional, but nonetheless... More
