Thailand’s Top National Parks

For a Thai adventure, national parks the best option. Most of these parks are admirably maintained and offer amazing natural sights, abundant wildlife and marked trails. They even offer amenities like bathrooms, canteens and economical rental bungalows for longer stays.

When planning a stay at a bungalow in one of the national parks, it is best to book the place well in advance. You can make online reservation by visiting the official website of the Wildlife and Plant Conversation Department.  If you prefer to camp, most parks offer supplies like sleeping bags, tents etc, so you need not worry about carrying supplies with you. You may have to rent a bike or a car for internal transport within the park. If you wish to avoid the crowd, a weekday trip is a good idea.
