Khao Yai – Thailand’s oldest reserve. Covering 2168 sq km, Khao Yai incorporates one of the largest intact monsoon forests remaining in mainland Asia, which is why it was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Khao Yai National Park is home to some 200 elephants as well as mammals including tigers, leopards, bears, gaur, barking deer, otters, crocodiles, various gibbons and macaques and some rather large pythons. Khao Yai also has one of Thailand’s largest populations of hornbills, including the great hornbill, king of the bird kingdom, as well as the wreathed hornbill, Indian pied hornbill and brown hornbill. The park’s bird list boasts 315 species.

Join us on this weekend getaway where you can see a different side of Thailand, just 3hrs away from busy Bangkok, to be in the arm of Mother Nature. And don’t worry, you will also get some time to do some shopping or massage or simply enjoy the wide selection of food in Bangkok. Best of both worlds indeed!
