A daytrip for lovers of nature

Posted by Sukhumwit Steve on May 24th, 2013 filed in Day trips, Sightseeing, activities

Organised daytrips in and around Bangkok allow visitors to take in all the main sights and attractions. The Grand Palace, Ayutthaya’s historic temples and Damnoen Saduak Floating Market are among firm favourites with tourists. One of the alternates to these tours for nature fans takes in Khao Yai National Park and includes an elephant trek.

The tour is a full-day option that sees tourists picked up from their Bangkok hotels early in the morning for the 160km journey to Khao Yai. The park’s lush landscapes, jungle, grass meadows and a tract of intact rainforest are a delight for the eyes. The 2,000km² park is home to many protected species including Himalayan ribbed bats, wild elephants and barking deer. While sightings are not guaranteed there is always an odds-on chance of espying at least one rare creature.

Stops at Nakhon Nayok and Pakchong Creek are usually a feature of Khao Yai tours. At the former, tourists explore the town’s market and are given the opportunity of sampling tropical fruit varieties such as durian, rambutan and the local genre of mango. At Pakchong, visitors climb aboard an elephant’s seat (howdah). Mahouts then lead them on a 45-minute odyssey through shade-giving forest.
