I drove to khao yai from Subum airport and the returned car at Bangkok.

Easy peasy drive.

And yes, Thailand also a lot of road hoggers.


Btw, khao yai is like kuantan in MY.

Pretty relac place where everything slows down. Go to the town area at nightwhere there are night market and the price there is half of bangkok and taste more authentic.

 

Those looking for nite life will sian half but for me it's great. 

 

National Park is at end  Road of Khao yai and can hike there and enjoy waterfall views there. 


Bottom line, it's a resort by the sea like Kuantan style

Yeah everything slows down, which is great!

Stayed at Lala Mukha Resort in Feb. Chose the tree house which is more secluded and really quiet. The tentage style ones, way on the other side, were noisy.

Weather then was just right for me, cooling though a bit dry.

Drive around and search for food. I ate lots of beef.

If you want some light shopping, can go Palio Village. They have a cat cafe there, I spent quite some time inside playing with the cats.

If you are adventurous enough, try the Khao Yai National Park. You can easily spend more than half a day there. Do choose and plan your hiking routes wisely.

yeah, proclaim to be sea of clouds  [laugh]

 

i can't drive 6 hours straight now..

most likely, i'm planning to do this, 

 BKK > KY (a night) > KK (2 or 3 nights) > KY (few nights) > BKK..

 

mine is the earliest flight, so probably reach BKK around 11, then pick up the car from the airport and head for KY.

I drove from Bkk city to ky and back to sub airport. Using Google maps.

Ky is like kampung from bkk. Everything slower and more quiet. There are some vineyards to visit if you are interested. There are also some Italian village, British styled hotels, and stuff to visit and take pictures
