Getting to Our Jungle in Khao Sok

Our Jungle Camp in Khao Sok National Park

Khao Sok is far away from the hustle and bustle of the major tourist cities in Southern Thailand, but very easy to reach!  Sitting between the west coast and east coast along highway 401, tucked between the forested mountains, the town mostly sits along the main road that runs roughly 2 kilometers between the park entrance and the main highway. Our Jungle Camp sits about 1 kilometer off of the main road on a small dirt road, nestled between the forest, the river, and the mountains.

 

Getting to Khao Sok By Plane

Our Jungle Camp in Khao Sok is less than 3 hours’ drive from all airports in Southern Thailand.  Surat Thani Airport is closest at just about 2 hours’ drive, but Phuket and Krabi airports are not too much farther.

We are happy to provide a private taxi or van pickup service from any of these airports.  Alternatively, you can arrange car rental at any of these airports if you prefer.

Getting to Khao Sok by Train

Surat Thani also has a train station about 2 hours away from our location in Khao Sok and we are happy to arrange a private taxi pickup.  If you want to take public transport, you usually have to take a bus back into the city center, and then catch another bus or minivan from Surat Thani Town to Khao Sok.

Getting to Khao Sok by Boat

If you are coming from the Gulf Islands, Koh Samui, Koh Pha Ngan, or Koh Tao, a private transfer can be made from Don Sak pier.  It is about 3.5 hours to reach Khao Sok from Don Sak.

Getting to Khao Sok by Public Transport

Public buses to Khao Sok are available from all major towns and even from the Gulf Islands, but these options do take longer than a private transfer.

Rental Car to Khao Sok

If you plan to rent a car to come to Khao Sok, it’s pretty simple to reach us.  It is also easy to get to Khao Sok by motorbike as long as you’re not traveling too far, but the road coming over from the west coast can be steep and windy.

The main highway is a quality road, though the access road to our resort is a short dirt road that can get muddy during the wet season.  There are ample parking spaces available for guests near the hotel reception.  You can use our GPS or address as your google map point for Khao Sok:
