Khao Sok is a real piece of paradise in the south of Thailand. The park is home to one of the oldest tropical rain forests in the world, a deep blue lake with small islands, waterfalls grottos, limestone cliffs and lots of wildlife. It’s one of the few places in Thailand that’s best to visit during the low/hot season.
The Cheow Lan Lake in the centre of the park was formed after the construction of a dam with a electric power plant. You can rent a bungalow at the water and enjoy refreshing swim and do water sports like kayaking. One of the animals that can be seen in the wild is the gibbon.
This National Park can easily be reached from the 100 km away city of Surat Thani. This city has an airport and is also used as a springboard to the islands Koh Tao, Koh Samui and Koh Phangan. The park is also reachable from Phuket.
