Free for Thai’s but despite being in Thailand and paying taxes for 8 years, and having a local council Thai ID card, they still charged me as a foreigner 400 baht to get in. What a rip-off. Is there any other country where it’s okay...More

We went to Khao Yai National Park with Greenleaf Tours. The guide Nine was excellent. He managed to spot hornbills, gibbons, snakes, lizards etc.The walk was not very difficult, and would suit most people.

A certain part of the trek is challenging. Steep stairs (7x) at 45Deg gradient.(waterfall area). Some trekkers go for forest exploration, floral & bird watching, Big area, require a day to cover fully the whole national park.

We went with an organised trip which was rather expensive since you are going into the rainforest so may not see much. It is more of a park for people to enjoy the forest and seeing animals is a bonus. We saw a few animals...More

Writing this reviewing primarily to recommend not visiting when it's a Thai holiday (obvious). We did drive through on New Year's Eve and essentially going from one end to the other. But to help other "foreigners" who visit, good to know a few items: (1)...More

Tickets required for cars and passengers. We did a drive-through and stopped at viewpoints for photos. Really lovely views and great photo opps. There was one viewpoint which had to be reached through a board walk. Not many railings at one point even though steps...More
