Don your walking shoes and spend a day in amongst butterflies, cascading waterfalls and the leafy green jungle.
Kaeng Krachan National Park
Take an excursion to the jungle west of Hua Hin close to the Burmese border. The surrounding forest is over 1,000 years old and there is a good chance of seeing wildlife, particularly gibbons (which will certainly be heard, if not seen) and many rare species of bird-life. The trek follows the stream to the Pala-U waterfall in several stages – take it at your own pace depending on how energetic you are feeling.
