An enormous lake, with beautiful rock formations. We took a tour with one night in these tiny cabins with nothing more than a bed. Showering? Jump in the lake! Toilets were available, dont worry. Also, the food was good, and dinner comprised of freshly caught...More

Nice national park, dense jungle, visit during rain season, but well to be done. Great animals, although you have to look well and be quiet to spot wild live. You need a guid for sure

This is a much more interesting place than south Phuket, away from the crowds and sex tourism.A beautiful and authentic place.

The landscape in Khao Sok reminds me of the rocks you will find on boattrips in Krabi with the difference that on the lake you are on fresh water and in Krabi salt-water.

Chiang Mai meets Halong bay. To my opinion the best way to describe Khao Sok. The views are incredible: lake, forrest, islands, are just priceless! This combination is unparalleled. Travelled with my family of four. Kids (14&16) loved it. In case you want to see...More
