Where to stay in Khao Sok National Park

Unlike other tourist areas in Thailand, there aren’t too many areas to choose from in terms of where to stay in Khao Sok National Park.

Your main choices are to stay in the Khao Sok Village or a floating bungalow on Cheow Lan Lake.  As this article is only focusing on accommodation in Khao Sok Village, let’s just talk about where to stay within the village.

Most of the accommodation is along the street, just outside the gates to the Khao Sok National Park.  This is where you’ll also find restaurants, cafes and a few shops.

There are a few accommodation options scattered around the back streets off the main road as well.  These are perfect for those wanting a more secluded experience.  It’s also where you’ll find most of the treehouses that Khao Sok is so famous for.

Of course, the further you stay away from the main street, the more walking you’ll need to do or take taxis when getting around.

The centre of town is considered to be where the Sok River passes through the main street – so to help you choose the ideal location, in the table above, the distance to here is noted.
