Khao Sok National Park Floating BungalowsFloating hut Khao Sok National Park

The bungalows and other accommodations in Khao Sok National Park on Cheow Lan Lake are very comfortable and stylish.

These bungalows are owned and operated by the national park, they are not Paddle Asia's bungalows. Other tour operators use these bungalows and they can get noisy

Each bungalow has a front deck. You can swim in the reservoir, it's very clean. The deck is a nice place to take a nap between paddling or hiking outings.

There are wooden bungalow with two mattresses on the floor. There are other bungalows at this floating bungalow operation that have proper beds.

Mosquito netting is not supplied as mosquitoes are rare in Khao Sok for some strange reason.

Another nice feature is diving platforms.

The restaurant serves extremely good food. The food is so good that there are quite a few visitors during that day who come to these bungalows just to eat lunch!

Here are more images of the floating bungalows.

The shower and toilet facilities are very clean. There is a lighted walkway at night.

As the reservoir is used for hydro-electric power and as water supply for Surat Thani and other nearby towns, the water level changes throughout the year.

The floating bungalows are merely a base for the real reason to visit Khao Sok. Nowhere else in southern Thailand can compare to the abundance and variety of wildlife that you'll see here. If you're used to more fancy accommodations, these quaint, very low impact, basic bungalows are a small sacrifice for the privilege of being in such a magical place.

Note: if this particular bungalow operation is full, we have alternative bungalows. Some other operations have toilet and shower facilities in the bungalows.

 

Phang Nga Bay Bungalows Koh Yao NoiKoh Yao Noi bungalows

We use these very nice locally-owned bungalows on Koh Yao Noi (Long Little Island). Bungalows are included in the trip price. These bungalows have air conditioning, hot showers, and a Western style toilet. Free WiFi is also available. Click here to see more images.

The bungalows are on the beach road. The view is superb. Several small islands sit just off the long beach in front of the bungalows.

Early birds can get some wonderful photos as the sun rises over the islands.

The mountains of Krabi Province stand tall behind the islands. Stunning scenery? ... you bet!

The food on Koh Yao Noi is outstanding. In fact, it's some of the best around. If you'd like to give real Thai food a try, the cooks won't hold back on the spices. If your palate is more tender, don't worry, they can tailor it down to any level you wish.

Breakfast varies from all of the standard styles of eggs, to yummy Thai rice porridge, to thick fruit pancakes.

Dinner is not included in the tour price. You can go across the beach road to a really nice beach restaurant or a short walk down to the north on the beach to the Pasai Cottage Restaurant. This restaurant makes some of the best food available in Thailand! Click here to see some food pics. Sometimes we go into 'town' to eat dinner.

Buffet style meals are also available for groups or large families. This is included in the tour price if agreed upon via email.

Ko Yao Noi sustains a healthy population of birds, monkeys, monitor lizards, barking deer and very colorful insect life. Oriental Pied Hornbills frequent the trees surrounding the bungalows. Ruddy Kingfishers, bright purple kingfishers with a wonderful 'trilly' call, zip around in the mangrove on either side of the bungalows; as do Brown-winged, White-throated and Collared Kingfishers. Mangrove Pittas sometimes visit too.
