Khao Sok National Park, Thailand

We spent a great, relaxing week at Khao Sok National Park. There are a cluster of resorts and restaurants near the park entrance, and all the resorts will book various activities. The main reason to go to Khao Sok is to do a overnight trip to Cheow Lan Lake (a reservoir) and stay in a bungalow on the water. Two day / one night trip including all meals, transport, guides, and bungalow was 2500 Baht/person. Our bungalow had a private bath, a fan, and generator power from 6pm till midnight. Not all tours included bungalows with a private bath, so be sure to ask.

We also visited the “Monkey Temple” (Wat Tham Phanthura) , which is a great place to watch monkey play. I did a ‘night safari’ guided hike thru the jungle, and got to see a bunch of cool spiders, lizards, and frogs.

We stayed at the Morning Mist Resort, and recommend it. They let us leave all our stuff in our room for free while we did the overnight trip to the lake. The best food in town was at Pawn’s Restaurant.

Some of our best photos of our entire trip so far are from our trip to the lake. The rest of our Khao Sok photos are here. We spent a lot more time in Khao Sok than necessary, but highly recommend the lake trip.

Our final night in Thailand was in Surat Thani, so we could experience the food at the fantastic night market (photos).
