The Khao Sok National Park is an evergreen rainforest that is almost 1.5 million years old. And with its giant flowers, limestone karsts, waterfalls and a stunning lake, it is gorgeous beyond belief. Now why would you stay in a concrete building, when you can spend the night in this rainforest, on the river in a lovely bungalow listening to the gibbons call out from the treetops. There are several resorts that offer treehouses and riverside bungalows in the national park.
Things to do here: Jungle trek on foot or aboard an elephant; kayak river cruises; bamboo rafting; boat tour of the Cheow Larn Lake.
Getting here: Fly to Phuket airport and take a 4-hour bus ride (for around 160 baht) from the city to the park. Take an overnight train from Bangkok’s Hualanphong Station to the Surat Thani train station. From there you can get a bus to Khao Sok.
