Explore the natural beauty of this UNESCO World Heritage Site, and have up-close encounters with the wild animals. The fun doesn’t stop there! You can also swim beneath majestic waterfalls and soak up the fresh, clean mountain air during adventurous strolls.
Khao Yai region is in southeast Thailand and is known for its pleasant climate. In contrast to the hot temperatures in Bangkok and the surrounding coastal areas, the park's average is 70°F and can reach as high as 95°F in March and April. In the rainy season between May and October, incredible amounts of water plunge into the depths.
In the morning, you will begin your journey to the Khao Yai. On the way, stop at Farm Camp Chockchai, where visitors learn to live in harmony with nature. It's a great family activity because it promises lots of fun and a delightful change from the fast-paced everyday life.
After the visit, enjoy a replenishing lunch in the restaurant, Chocolate Factory Khao Yai. Stroll through the nearby art museum and take your children to the leafy Pete's Maze.
In the late afternoon, continue the drive into the middle of the mountains. Pass the endless rice fields and witness the unique phenomenon where thousands of bats wake up and fly out of their caves over these areas to look for food.
Finally, you will arrive at your hotel and then enjoy a delicious dinner from the staff.
