Khao Sok Holidays

Take a break from dozing on the glimmering sands of Thailand's many beaches and explore the verdant jungle surrounding Khao Sok.

For the ultimate wildlife adventure, visit Khao Sok's famous National Park and feel the mist of the rainforest as you stand next to soaring limestone cliffs broken by rushing, tumbling waterfalls. Hike the trails following the river to serene, island-studded lakes and listen to the sounds of nature calling around you. As well as the rainforest, you can meet majestic elephants in the wild, a once-in-a-lifetime experience to see the largest land animal in Asia wander the jungle and take a relaxing canoe or kayak trip down the Sok River for a spot of birdwatching. 

Don't stop there: see more of Thailand in one trip. Twin your stay in Khao Sok with Krabi, known for its dramatic landscapes, or head to Phuket for true paradise on earth.

    "No trip to Khao Sok is complete without a visit to Elephant Hills. This award winning property allows you to witness elephants in their natural environment as well as many other animals and birds. I'd recommend the 2 night, 3 day lake safari so you get to experience both camps"
