Nakhon Nayok, How to get to Khao Yai National Park

Khao Yai National Park

Location and how to get there


By Car : From Bangkok, Khao Yai is less than three hours by car. From Phahonyothin Road the quickest way [160 km] is to turn ring at Rangsit Junction into Highway 305 [Rangsit to Nakhon Nayok]. Before arriving at Pranchinburi, switch left to Highway 33 at Naresuan Junction. Turn left on Highway 3077 which leads northwards another 41 km to the park headquarters.

By Bus : From Bangkok, Buses leave the Northern Bus Terminal ( Mo Chit ) for Pak Chong and Nakhon Ratchasima about every half-hour. From Pak Chong and Nakhon take a songtaw  ( pick – up truck with two benches) to the park headquarters. It is also possible to take a bus from Mo Chit to Naresuan Junction, and then take a songtaw from there to the park headquarters.


It is in four provinces, which are Nakhon Ratchasima, Nakhon Nayok, Saraburi, and Prachin Buri. It is the first national park in Thailand and was proclaimed as such on September 18, 1962.


The park has an area of 2,168 square kilometres. The primary feature here is of winding mountain ranges covered by virgin and other types of forests, as well as wide grass fields. It is the source of many waterways. The most abundant animals are wild elephants, monkeys, deer, porcupines, butterflies, insects, and a variety of birds, particularly the hornbill, which is the largest bird in the park and found everywhere in August and September. The tourist service centre has a good exhibition on wild animals.
