 Sai Yok National Park

This 300-square-kilometer national park is best known for the family of SaiYok Waterfalls (NamtokSaiYok); three picturesque waterfalls located in the park. NamtokSaiyok was first widely known among Thais when King Rama V visited them in 1888 during his reign that inspired Prince Naris, his brother, to compose a song named KamenSaiYok that narrates the beauty of this waterfall. Apart from being a home to numerous wild animals, such as squirrels, bats, deer, and birds, it is also home to the world’s smallest mammal, the two-grammedKittis Hog-nosed Bat, which was first discovered in 1973. The park is very popular during the weekends.

Bungalow accommodations, river rafts, camping facilities, and a daytime food market are available. Other attractions include Lawa and Daowadung caves that feature beautiful stalactites and stalactites as well as the nearby Tham Wang Badan or ThamSawan Wang Badan. The park and its waterfalls is popular among weekenders as it is close to the Nam Tok Railway station you can easily access by train and continue on foot.
