From what to pack and details about the accommodation, to the amazing activities on offer, read this before visiting Khao Sok National Park, Thailand.
If you want to take in Thailand’s raw beauty, then a trip to Khao Sok National Park should be at the top of your list. With epic limestone cliffs, a bright emerald lake and a chance to get up close to wildlife, our time in Khao Sok was the highlight of our trip to Thailand.
In all honesty, we had several dilemmas about whether to visit Khao Sok National Park on our recent holiday. We were only in Thailand for just over two weeks, and from our research it seemed like Khao Sok was awkward to get to. To really soak it up we’d need two or three days there, with some big travel days at either end. We wondered whether it was worth it, or whether we should skip it and enjoy our trip at a slower pace.
Time for a little personal update as errrr… something pretty massive happened recently!
As you may remember, at the end of March I was getting VERY excited for our holiday to Thailand. We’d spent months planning it and had created our dream trip. Well it turns out Macca was excited to go to Thailand too, but for completely different reasons to me.
The day we left turned into one of those never-ending travel days. We spent 20+ hours travelling from London to Bangkok, then down to the island of Koh Lanta. We went from bus to tube to plane to plane to minibus.

We’re back from Thailand and I can’t believe how incredible the trip was! I knew our holiday was going to be special because a) it was to a country I’d wanted to visit for ages and b) it was a proper holiday. It was time to recharge the batteries, do what we want when we want, indulge as often as possible and truly R-E-L-A-X.

I’ve dreamed of my own little Thailand island hopping tour, and can finally say – it’s happening! In a few weeks I’m jetting off to Bangkok, then down to Krabi to start an adventure in a country I’ve been dying to visit for years.
I’ve never visited Thailand. WHAAAAT?! How is this possible?
Somehow I missed the gap yaaahs that most of my friends went on to southeast Asia. They all went travelling around Thailand, while I found myself excited by a whole other side of the planet, focusing my attention on Central and South America. Somehow, it just hadn’t happened… until now.
