Khao Yai Park

Thailand
By Dmitry Petrounin Dmitry Petrounin Section editor Profile

Discover Khao Yai Park

Khao Yai, one of the best national parks barely a two-hour ride to the north-east of Bangkok, is definitely worth a visit. With mountains, forest and savannah, it is not uncommon to come across macaques, muntjac stags and hornbills. Elephants, gibbons and black bear, although there, are a much rarer sighting.
