These were great 1.5 days we’ve seen and experienced a real wild nature and it was perfectly tailored to our own needs. Our guide Jay was kind flexible and professional. I wish we could see some elephants but I guess it requires better timing and some luck. I recommend this trip to anyone who considers visiting this national park.

Our guide - Lake is accommodating, knowledgeable & handsome too. Everything was arranged accordingly to the 2 days tours that we booked for.

Unfortunately, it was rainy season, we were very disappointed because there was no sight of wild life except Gibbons, Monkeys, Deers, Snakes, Horn-bill & Spiders. I'm sorry, I can't give anything more than 3 stars rating.

We had een very interesting trip in and around the park. Seen lots of animals and plants. No elefants though (but we knew there was little change to see them). You see so much more with a guide!

Khao Yai is a wonderful national park and our guide Chutchai is an excellent and friendly guide. We saw an elephant, a crocodile, a water monitor, hornbills, gibbons, muntjacs, procupines, a lot of sambar deer, etc. Chutchai kindly taught us how to identify different species of pit vipers and gliding lizards. Both the safari and trekking were nice. An unforgettable experience, especially for wildlife lovers.

Indo Chinese water dragon, water monitor, samba deer and lots more.

hallo, thanks for asking. the experience was very good. the two guys we had for guides in the two days (Jay and Tata) were brilliant and very friendly. The parc is amazing and we enjoyed our visit very much. We've also choosen one of the hostel you suggested (Hallo Hostel in Pak Chong) which was very good, but I think it's quite far away from the parc and my only suggestion is to suggest hostels or hotels closer to the parc. If you told ma that it was far and I didn't notice, I beg you pardon and make my excuses.

By the way, everything went well and we will recomand you to our friends.

thanks a lot

Alessandra

Tour operator's response

Dear Alessandra,

Great to hear you had a good experience with our guides.

We do not make any specific hotel recommendations because we have no personal experience with the hotels and we have no influence whatsoever on the quality. We simply provide a list of hotels from where we can pick up our guests. Every hotel might have its advantages and disadvantages and everybody has different preferences so we do not specifically recommend any hotel and let the guests decide by themselves what fits them best. To suit people on different budgets we have included Hello Hostel in Pak Chong town which is very cheap but indeed a longer drive. Most of the other options listed are much closer to the park, but there is no low-budget options near the park. It generally costs double or more.

Thanks for joining our tour!
