Khao Sok Map

There is an absence of upto date maps of the Khao Sok Area especially ones showing the location of accommodation, restaurants, shops, bars and other facilities in the area between Highway 401 and the entrance to the National Park. Here is a link to a hand drawn one that is not to scale and subject to being updated as any errors are corrected or it is updated.

Please feel free to send me comments so that I can try and keep it as current as possible.

The Cliff and River Jungle Resort is not on the map because it is along the highway about 11km towards Surat Thani on the opposite side from the road down to the National Park.

thank you for providing this map, it is very helpful.

if i arrive in khao sok (tomorrow Dec 2) am i likely to find a room just by dropping in to one of the hotels in the area?

are there tuk tuks in this area to make this search for a hotel easier?

thank you in advance!

Hi,

I'm sure there will be availability in one of the resorts. If you are arriving by bus it drops you at the 109km marker bus stop which is right at the top of the road leading down to the NP entrance. It is shown as 1.6km from here to the Park entrance and I think there were a couple of taxis parked up near the top to take you to wherever you want to go. There are a number near the top so you can start there and see what you think of the looks of them and the price quoted. We stayed at the Baab Khao Sok Resort which is not far down on your right in a lovely spot by the river and overlooked by a towering cliff. We stayed in a tree house but they have lodges too.

New map added of the area called Khao Sok Village near the entrance to the National Park where most accommodation is located. See walagata.com/w/…Khao_Sok_Village_Map.jpg

Hi Alan,

For staying 2 nights in the area (directly from phuket airport to Khoa Sok) which option is more reasonable?

first stay at one of the jungle resort and then raft house or vice versa?

Is it an advantage to book a resort which is near the Park's entrance?

Is there any resorts inside the park or all of them are out of it?

Thanks.

Nahid

Hi Nahid,

Going to the Lake or Khao Sok Village (the Natrional Park area) from Phukert takes about the same time by different routes. Returning to Khao Lak it is further from the Lake so from that point of view staying on the Lake first, then going to stay near the National Park entrance, makes more sense if you are going on to Khao Lak.

There are no resorts actually within the National Park area except those on the Lake which is within the NP. The main accommodation area shown on the map is on the road down from the highway and all re near to the NP entrance.
