Okay, so I think Khao Sam Roi Yot Thailand was my favorite vacation.
I know I’ve said that before though 😆 butttt it was was such a relaxing and humble vacay.
Khao Sam Roi Yot National Park is in the Prachuap Khiri Khan Province in Thailand.
It is even more south than Hua Hin.
Indria, Christina, and I took a van from Mahachai on a random weekend in September 2019. From there, we went to the van stop in Khao Sam Roi Yot. It only took a little less than three hours. After we landed at the van stop, we took a Grab to Stella Resort.
Our room had one bed so the owner gave us an extra mattress for cheap. I think around ฿300. So we all chipped in ฿100.
The first day we woke up bright and early and had some of the complimentary breakfast that included eggs, toast, and some fruit. They also had some coffee and tea. I guess the resort was pretty vacant.
The resort had motorbikes. We rented two for the day for I think ฿300 each? Not too bad. All we had to do was bring back a full tank of gas when we returned them, which is how renting vehicles usually work everywhere. I drove my own bike while Indria drove Christina and herself. I live life on the edge.
We hiked our way up to Sai Cave and Khao Daeng View Point all in one day. The park was huge so the bikes were definitely useful and worth it. Each hike took about an hour one way.
While riding through the park, we got to see some cows and monkeys along the road. So cool!!!
We got some yummy Thai food after our long hike.
After venturing around the park all day, we ended up at Searchlight Bar. We got a drink and chilled.
This guy from the UK owns it and there’s a mini-library there.
After finishing up our drinks and chatting with the owner, we searched for a place to eat dinner. We found Fire Grill Steakhouse & Seafood. It was close and also along the beach. We also saw some more farangs. Once we sat down, a cat came over to us so that always makes an experience better!
I got a salad because feta. The food was pretty good. It was raining, but it was still a spectacular view. The beach picture above with the bike was our view!! How pretty.
That Saturday night, we had a chill night at the resort. We bought some wine and drank it by the pool. We played some cards and talked a bunch. What a memorable night.
The Sunday that we left Khao Sam Roi Yot Thailand, the owner of the resort was so sweet, she called the van company and they brought us back to Mahachai.
We always say that we want to go back. Khao Sam Roi Yot Thailand will have to be on the list when we go back to visit. But, with so many national parks in that magnificent country, it’s hard to say when we will go back there. Either way, I can’t wait until we go back and have another relaxing weekend at Khao Sam Roi Yot Thailand 😀
I will forever have the exquisite views of the national park engraved in my brain. Riding through the park was so relaxing and taking in the fresh air is just one of those memories that will always stick with you.
