Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The trouble might be because I had just came back from an enchanting visit to the Dana Nature Reserve in Jordan? This is supposed to be the largest National Park in Thailand, but having spent a morning butterfly watching, bird searching, wild life sniffing, all I saw was a forlorn wild elephant crossing the road, a trace of bear paws on a tree trunk, and a semi impressive park ranger. The potentials are aplenty, but apparently they are yet to be exploited to the fullest if they want to attract the tourists hungry for discoveries.

For the past twelve years I have been visiting the Kaeng Krachan National Park. It never fails to amaze me the beauty of this glorious example of Tropical Forest. It is only a two and a half hour drive form Bangkok. To make a booking on the internet is easy and purchase of the tickets at the Reservoir sets you up to then drive to the entry gate. Maps available at the ticketing office. A short drive from the gate takes you up a steep hill and once over the crest of the hill you are met with the spectacular view of thick tropical jungle. The tarred road makes progress easy and to a large extent silent. Driving slowly along this road you on occasion can spot a variety of wild life. Being quite and attentive does help with this. At the lower camp it is best to camp on the edge near the stream as this adds to the ambiance and makes sleeping in a tent to the soothing sound of the water flowing by that much more enjoyable. Going to the top camp is only allowed at certain times and the upward journey is from 5.30 am to 09.00 after which the people from the top camp are allowed to come down. The upward journey starts at 13.00 to 15.00. The view on the way up is spectacular. Stopping every now and then is a must. Top camp is has breath taking views. A visit to is a must but be prepared for a strenuous walk. (3 km seems much longer) Set aside at least two days to take it all in

We rented a motorbike to get to this place from Cha-am, The suspension bridge is the place where the famous Thai romantic movie scene "Crazy Little Thing Called Love" got shot. There is a marker to commemorate the scene.

I enjoyed my brief visit to Kaeng Krachan National Park in Phetchaburi. We spent a couple hours there and really enjoyed it. My reason for the average rating is only due to the fact that the park is rather small and we would have loved to have seen hiking trails and more activities here. One absolute must is a 600 baht boat ride around the lake which was beautiful. However, the absolute highlight was the island full of monkeys who literally swam out to our boat to get food. It was an absolute riot and an experience I'll never forget.

While my wife was reluctant to leave the beach/pool in Hua Hin, we jumped in the car and adventured here to enjoy the lake and mountains. We took a one-hour boat ride around the lake in a safe, well-maintained long boat with a canopy overhead. It was a comfortable, relaxing afternoon ride enjoying the birds, swimming monkeys and fresh air. We bought monkey food at HQ and the monkeys swam from the island out towards our boat to eat.

Boat/captain can be hired inexpensively at the national park HQ. The captains only speak Thai AFAIK and offer interesting info.

A part from enjoying the beach at Cha-Am or Hua-Hin you may consider visit this National park, especially if you are there around April to May there will be lots of butterflies (many varieties) around the park in the area of "Ban Krang Camp"
Car accessible.
You can stay overnight in a tent up there or just get a day trip. There will be cost when entering the area, I cannot remember exactly the price but not more than 100THB per person.

The water level in the reservoir was very low which allowed many additional islands to appear. the surrounding scenery was breathtaking. One of the most beautiful sites in Thailand.
