We stayed at Greenleaf and did both tours offered. The room itself was nothing special- it was typical of most of the accommodations we had around the national parks in that it was not particularly fancy, but it got the job done. The bed was...More
We did the Full Day Tour and stayed the night at the Guesthouse and highly recommend the entire experience. The staff were incredibly accommodating and communicated very well with us. We arrived to Pak Chong late Friday evening so they suggested we stay at At...More
Lek led our tour. It focuses on wildlife spotting, so you spend a fair bit of the day in a vehicle-- the hike is about 3 hours. Lek is great at spotting wildlife, is very friendly, and speaks great English. We saw much more than...More
If you're looking for a bungalow retreat, look elsewhere. If you're looking for an affordable campy bungalow shack with great tours of Khao Yai Park and amazing food, go here!
The full-day tour was great! Our group was small (only 8 people) and our tour...More
I didn't stay at the guesthouse itself but I had the pleasure of seeing wild elephants, great hornbills, monkeys, a gibbon, a crocodile, a monitor lizard, a scorpion, two vipers and a squirrel in the national park. I would have missed every single one of...More
1) we took the 8:30ish a.m. train from Ayuthaya to Pakchong and it took about 2 hours, this I can confirm. There's different types of train, from faster to very slow. I got the timetable. I'll try to send it to... More
1) we took the 8:30ish a.m. train from Ayuthaya to Pakchong and it took about 2 hours, this I can confirm. There's different types of train, from faster to very slow. I got the timetable. I'll try to send it to you.
2) if you don't want to miss the afternoon tour, you should arrive at Packchong by 1p.m. That's what the hotel suggested to us. There will be someone waiting for you for sure.
3) the aircon rooms at the back were 1,000 baths I think in December 2015. We were not staying there, but a French couple showed us. The rooms are bigger and look more comfy than the basic one at 300 baths. Not sure I'd call them "luxurious" though. Remember that the Greenleaf is a backpacker hotel.
4) The advantage of this hotel is that they are VERY WELL organized. The guides got the eyes to find all kind of animals. With luck, you might see elephants like we did. They seem to go in places where nobody else is going, even when the park is full with people.
5) Night tour from 3 p.m. to 8p.m more of less; day tour from 9a.m. to 5 or 6p.m. If you ask them you'll have a better idea.
6) going back to the train station after the day tour shouldn't be a problem. They surely had the same request before.
7) Enjoy the food there. It's good.
Hope that helps
