Sai Yok National Park
The park covers approximately 300-square-kilometers
and contains several interesting caves and the nation’s famous Namtok
Sai Yok Yai. The park has dense forests, including majestic teak
trees and an abundance of small mammals such as squirrels, bats
and deer, as well as numerous bird species. IN addition, the park
is home to what is probably the smallest mammal in the world, the
two-grammed Kitti’s Hog-nosed Bat, which was first discovered in
1973 by a Thai naturalist. The park is 104 kilometers from Kanchanaburi
via Highway No. 323 and can also be reached by chartered boat from
the Pak Saeng Pier. The park is very popular during the weekends.
Bungalow accommodations, river rafts, camping facilities, and a
daytime food market are available.
