Great Guides

Posted on: March 30th, 2013 by bodhi

Most delicious Thai food I’ve ever eaten (note: I lived and ate in Thailand for 16 months prior to this!) a cooling stroll through a picturesque stream amongst spectacular limestone cliffs and thick jungle greens, and a most peaceful sleep in wooden treasure box of a bungalow…

 

…our tour guide’s smile and pride for his native land was a sight to behold and to respect, too…

Beautiful, Relaxing, and Delicious!

Posted on: March 30th, 2013 by bodhi

The grounds are great. The huts are cute, the space is well maintained, and it’s surrounded by massive cliffs. It’s an incredible sight…

 

…I ordered a salad with banana blossom…in a country where we had nothing bad to eat, this was still one of the best dishes I had. After dinner we went upstairs to the loft and had a couple of beers while unwinding. It was incredibly relaxing…

 

…Everyone at the property has a very chill vibe. It was an absolute pleasure… no pressure, no stress, they just seem to want their guests to have a good time, which is great…

Too Good To Leave

Posted on: March 29th, 2013 by bodhi

The sounds already in the day were amazing, the room was clean, cozy and more than I wished it would be…

 

…I was meant to stay 4-5 days, 10 days later I left back to Koh Tao, refreshed, rejuvenated, excited to share my tales of the jungle, lake, elephant safari, wild life, my tree house and riverside experiences…

 

…After living in Thailand and visiting a jungle resort I think it’s important to take on board the experience your signing up for, it’s in the jungle, you really need to embrace the experience, showering in cold water is refreshing, sounds of bugs and wildlife are amazing, seeing and smelling all that is surrounding you…

Trip Details
I spent three weeks in Thailand in May 2012. I found the trip reports on this forum really helpful when planning my trip and hopefully others will find my trip reports as useful. While there is a strong focus on herping, I’ve also tried to include details of the accommodation, walks, other animals etc to provide an indication of the full experience. In addition to the individual trip reports, I’ve also provided a general overview - viewtopic.php?f=2&t=13082

Photographs
I’ll put some photos in the blogs but didn’t want to make it too picture heavy. I’ve also pasted a number of pictures on my Flickr account and welcome any correction of misidentified species (or in the case of the frogs – I welcome any identifications). I’ll only post herp photos on the forum but there are some mammal and invertebrate shots on Flickr for those interested in what wildlife you might see more generally.

23 May
Fairly uneventful 3 hour drive from Phanom Bencha to Khao Sok – except for the odd idiot trying to undertake at 100km/hr. As I approached Khao Sok, I could see black clouds approaching and made it to the accommodation just after the rain hit – good timing as I don’t think I would have wanted to drive in it. A number of dead snakes on the road but only one live one – which got away before I could ID it. The beginning of the drive was incredibly scenic with towering limestone Karsts on both sides of the road.

A Great spot in the middle of the Khao Sok National Park!

We loved Our Jungle House…we were very happy to discover that Our Jungle House was at the end of the road…

There were monkeys in the trees, the house we stayed in “Thai House” was a good value and perfect for our family of five…

We did an elephant tour and a great night safari (and saw some super cool things that night with the guide), both of which were arranged by OJH. I wish we’d had time to go to hot springs…

very involved in making a positive difference through involvement with a school for Burmese kids…

Oh, and we found it pretty wild and lovely to have the combined pleasure of jungle access and environment with fast and free wifi.

“The Best Place in Khao Sok”

Posted on: February 20th, 2012 by bodhi

This is the most amazing place to stay in Khao sok!

The tree houses are simple but stunning in the most beautiful location, we spent the nights laying on the balcony looking at the stars and were woken by the sound of gibbons in the national park…

the restaurant was amazing, reasonable price and delicious food, especially the dry curries (the basil one was great) the staff were great! …
I learned a lot and saw many things i wouldn’t have seen without the guide, plus he made us coffee using only bamboo! …

A once in a lifetime opportunity

Posted on: February 11th, 2012 by bodhi

My friend and I stayed at the Romance tree house for three nights. It had a big bathroom, nice balcony with the amazing view of the river…

We did the elephant trekking, canoe trip, lake day tour which include a cave tour. That was amazing!!! …

The food was amazing. You must try the pad Thai…

Thank you Our Jungle House!!!!
