Thailand has gained fame for its extraordinary natural splendors, and Khao Sam Roi Yot National Park is one of the best destinations for nature lovers. By choosing the Hua Hin and Cha-Am region as your holiday destination, you will be in for a treat. A pleasant drive through the fertile agricultural land south of Hua Hin takes you the park, aka '300 peaks,' Thailand’s oldest coastal national park. This protected area is a wonderland of limestone caves, forests, waterfalls, mangrove swamps, and isolated beaches, all within a 35-square-mile (90-square-km) area of central Thailand.
After hotel pickup, your journey starts with the 1-hour drive in a southern direction through Prachuap Khiri Khan province, known for its pineapple and coconut plantations. Make a stop to get an up-close view and learn about the cultivation and harvesting procedures to get from seed to fruit.
As soon as you enter the national park, make your way to a secluded fishing village where you may feel like you've gone back in time to a traditional way of life set amid stunning scenery. Then proceed by fishing boat to a secluded beach, which is the starting point for a steep climb to Phraya Nakhon Cave. The most popular attraction of this vast cave is Phra Thinang Khuha Kharuehat, a pavilion constructed during the reign of King Rama V in 1890. This distinctive pavilion is now used as the symbol of the province.
After a much-needed lunch to refuel from your climb, enjoy free time for a leisurely afternoon on the white sandy beach. If you do not wish to participate in the 1,410-foot high (430-meter) climb up the mountain to Phraya Nakhon Cave, you'll have more time to spend at Laem Sala Beach. Lunch is served on the beach with time for swimming and sunbathing before you are returned to your original pickup location.
