Super nice trip with lots of nature. First a beautiful hike through the national park, followed by the best food I've ever had on a trip. At the end there is a nice canoe tour including a coffee break (made of bamboo cups) directly on the river. Our guide took a lot of time for us and showed us many other highlights.

Es war einfach unglaublich..die Naur ein Traum, alles bestens organisiert..das Resort so schön, das Essen toll sowie die dazugehörigen Snacks und immer Getränke...und das beste: unser Guide ;) Absolut zu empfehlen...das nächste Mal werde ich min. 2 Nächte im Tree House verbringen

Great day trip! Guide was knowledgeable, informative, personable, and energetic. Highly recommend doing this trip with 500 Rai Resort.

Had an amazing time! Khao sok is beautiful, 500rai is stunning and we also really enjoyed the trek to Coral cave.

Everything went according to plan. The guide was very nice and we had a great time. Always my pleasure.
