Khao Sok National Park Surat Thani Reviews
One of the most stunning places in the WORLD May 28, 2011
If you have not been to Khao Sok National Park during your travels around Thailand, put it on your list now! I have been there twice and both times used a company called Limestone Lake Tours, run by an Aussie girl Kris. I highly recommend her tour company as it is value for the $ however if you are on a strict budget you can do it yourself cheap.
Catch a local bus from Surat Thani or Phuket and ask to stop at Khao Sok National Park. From there you can stay in a treehouse and arrange trekking, canoeing, elephant riding and the DO NOT MISS overnight stay on the Floating Rafthouses at Chieow Laan Lake. From the rafthouses you can go wildlife spotting, caving, trekking, swimming and canoeing...
The rafthouses are basic - a mattress on the floor and the toilets/shared bathrooms are on the lakes shore.. there is only generator electricity until about 11pm then its kerosene lanterns for the rest of the night! Amazing place to see sunset/sunrise!
I personally found it easier to do a package tour through Limestone Lake Tours but you can make your own way to the main area and arrange tours to the lake through all the guesthouses.
My favourite place to stay is Arts Riverview Lodge, which I will do a seperate review on..
