Khao Yai National Park

Khao Yai National Park covers an area of over 2000 square kilometers in the four provinces of Nakhon Ratchasima, Nakhon Nayok, Saraburi, and Prachin Buri.

It was the first national park in Thailand and became a UNESCO World Heritage Site under the name Dong Phaya Yen-Khao Yai Forest Complex.

Khao Yai National Park has several mountains of around 1000 metres including Khao Khieo. The entire area is criss-crossed by hiking trails, ranging in length from one and a half to eight kilometres. There are many waterfalls, the tallest and most spectacular of which is Haew Narok. Haew Suwat is famous for the jump scene in the movie The Beach.

Khao Yai's forests are teeming with wildlife and birds and is host to almost 2,500 plant species, 67 different kinds of mammals and over 300 species of birds.

The abundant wildlife includes many endangered mammals such as elephants, gibbons, tigers, leopards and Malaysian sun bears. Civets, squirrels, porcupines, and wild pigs add a bit of variety. Snakes and lizards usually make their presence known by a rustle in the undergrowth as you are walking.

Towering trees draped in mosses, climbers, tangled trunks of the strangling figs, drooping lianas & spiny rattan palms, delicate ferns, multicoloured lichens and an ever-changing array of fungi are all on view here.

Lunch in a Thai Restaurant

Thai food has a range of tastes to suit all pallets so please don't make the mistake of thinking that all Thai food is spicy. Some dishes are very spicy but there are many which are not spicy at all. Rather, they are a wonderful combination of sweet and sour.

Thai dishes are normally shared by all.
Thai Cuisine is well-known for being hot and spicy and for its balance of the five fundamental flavors in the overall meal - hot (spicy), sour, sweet, salty, and bitter.

Thai food has four regional cuisines corresponding to the four main regions of the country: Northern, Northeastern (or Isan), Central, and Southern, each cuisine featuring locally grown food.

Southern curries, for example, tend to contain coconut milk and fresh turmeric, while northeastern dishes often include lime juice. The cuisine of Isan is heavily influenced by Laos.

Many popular dishes eaten in Thailand were originally Chinese dishes which were introduced to Thailand mainly by Teochew people who make up the majority of the Thai Chinese. Such dishes include Jok, Kway teow Rad Na, Khao Kha Moo and Khao Mun Gai.

Thai food is known for its enthusiastic use of fresh rather than dried herbs and spices as well as fish sauce.

Why is a private tour a better choice?

With a private tour, you have the freedom to choose what you want to do and when you want to do it. There is much more room for flexibility and changes to your itinerary at every step of the way because you don't have to consider the needs of other travelers. The flexibility and freedom to make the most of your time is the reason why so many people choose to take a private tour rather than a group tour.
