Amazing experience. Natalie was our guide for the day, she was very very kind and extremely Professional, she explained everything about the stories of the saved animals and responded to every question we had about them or the species.Make sure to book in Advance, you can do it from the site WFFT, it's very easy you just need to fill up the form at least the previous day.To reach the WFFT from Hua Hin it's very easy by taxi, even if it will probably take some time for you to explain where you want to go to the drivers since nobody we asked to seemed to know what we were talking about.The taxi drivers will try to offer you to go to other safaris or animal shows, don't go because you can't even imagine how badly the animals are treated to train them.If you have the meanings (it costed us just 1500 bahts go and back from Hua Hin) it's a great opportunity to support this amazing organisation to safe this gorgeus animals.After the guide explains and shows you all the beautiful animals they have, you can refill bottles, go to the toilet and they offer you a really tasty buffet lunch with also fresh fruit included in the Price.It was definitely worth every single baht.

Amazing park - took a tour with Tontan Travel. An amazing Christmas experience in Khaeng Krachan, where we saw and heard a large number of animals, including stump-tailed macaques, a family of Gibbons, a Black Panther (that was the really lucky one!), hornbills (greater and oriental pied), serpent eagles, pit viper, and so many more (our list got to over 50 species inc birds). We travelled as a family of 3, with an 11-year old child.We had a fantastic guide called Mong through Tontan Travel Wildlife Tours, who had a great ability to spot things and then zoom in on them with his telescope for us to see. The tour company also provided a good open-topped truck (great for viewing but bring a jacket for the wind!) and driver and took us to good places for lunch each day.We stayed just outside the park at Baan Maka nature lodge, which was also very good.

Into the depths!!. Than Khao Luang is a heavily visited cave, only a short distance from Phra Nakhon Khiri Historical Park (easily combined in a single trip). Visitors are required to park at a temple at the bottom of the mountain and ride small shuttle vehicles up the mountain operated by local people. The cost of the shuttle and cave entrance is 25 baht (mercifully no two-tiered pricing). The cave has a few large rooms and is adorned with several large Buddha statues. There are also some nice cave formations. The cave was "developed" for tourism and religious pilgrimage already many years ago and it has extensive lighting and paved walkways. There are about one hundred steps leading down into the cave (and back out).

Stunning waterfalls with swimming and fish. Beautiful falls that you can swim in. Water is teeming with large carp that you can buy food for. Fantastic jungle setting with level after level of fall with different colored butterflies at each level :) Less than an hour from Hua His

Summer palace on the mount!. Like most of the historical parks in Thailand, this one is well-maintained, with beautiful gardens and landscaping. The site includes the summer palace build 160 years ago, during the reign of King Rama IV. There is a small museum in the summer palace itself and several other temples and buildings. To reach the park, visitors can walk up the mountain (only recommended if you are fit, eager for exercise, and keen to fight off the hundreds of monkeys that live in the area) or take the funicular cable car up from the west side of the mountain. Like most national parks and historical parks in Thailand, dual pricing is in effect, with entry for foreigners at 200 baht, plus

2020. We first visited this palace many years ago before the Thais realised it's potential. Then you could wander at will and it was divine. Now it is commercialised and spoilt, even the history has been tampered with and the sweet love story mangled. It has been under renovation for years! It is merely a chance to grab money. We first sawThis palace about 20 years ago and have checked it out every year since so we know it very well.

A Premier Not-to-be-Missed Thailand Natural History Experience. Our perspectives are based on being two wildlife biologists who work for the federal government in the United States in the State of Alaska. This experience is breath-taking, awe-inspiring, and a natural spectacle that should not be missed by anyone close to Cha-am, Thailand. The 15-minute display of bats emerging from a mountain cave will be enoyed by young and old alike whether they enjoy bats or not and irrespective of their interests in natural history. People from all over the world should marvel at this 15-minute display at not only the numbers of individuals but their pattern against the evneing sky. Rarely, does the public have an opportunity to witness such a spectacle. In sharp contrast to the noise, lights, glitter, and commericial beach scene, you will experience an event in nature depected in the mountains and quaint agricultural lands of Thailand. We happened to enjoy farmers moving a hundred or so head of cattle, some with bells down the road in front of the observation deck. Another great experience for us.

Only if you love rabbits and alpacas (at extra cost). As some reviewers mentioned, deco are old and worn. Imagine you are there in December but you see holloween decorations instead of Christmas stuff.However if you love rabbits, they have a huge rabbit hut with lots of rabbit and is sheltered. Paying 80 bahts will get you into the alpacas enclosure where you can get close, feed and touch them. They have now covered the whole enclosure with stickers, so you won't be able to see them at all unless you pay the fee and go inside.

Quiet Beach Town. Cha-am beach won't win any beauty contests, but it is a nice beach in a nice quiet town. Things pick up a bit here on weekends and holidays, but it's normally pretty quiet. You can rent inner tubes and sun/shade chairs. Can even ride horses. Seafood shops line the beach for many blocks. Public toilets and showers are everywhere (for a small fee). The beach itself has wide spots (north end) and narrow (central area disappears at high tide). The crowd is mostly local, although pockets of western tourists can be fornd near bigger hotels. My experience was in the local area, and as a western tourist myself, I found the local people, beach-goers and vendors, to be very kind and accepting of me. I've rated 4 stars, not based on beauty, but on the whole Cha-am beach experience.

THE BIGGEST SHOPPING DAY OF MY ENTIRE YEAR!. This place is amazing. You MUST visit. They have everything! Food, clothes, decorations, etc. You can bargain anything down to almost nothing. We bought shoes, purses, clothes, jewelry, decorations for the house...SO MUCH TO BUY! If you are going with a guy, I recommend leaving him somewhere else for a couple of hours because girls love this place WAY more than guys do, lol. If you want a one stop shop to get your gifts for you and other people, this is definitely the place to go. Check out our pictures!!!!!!!!
