Khao Yai 4D3N Travel Guide & 24 hours in Bangkok

Travelling to Khao Yai was not a plan at all initially. Instead, my boyfriend and I were actually aiming Bangkok City as our next trip together. But we changed our mind after heard about Khao Yai from my friend. It is not a shopping paradise, but instead is a place with lush nature landscapes & European-themed towns, located just 2 hours’ drive away from Bangkok City! Later then I found picturesque destinations in Khao Yai via quick Google’s searches. Everything looks relax and serene to me, and quite a few of Instagram-worthy spots can be found. We then switched our target to Khao Yai (actually also because of considering the boring and waiting face of my boyfriend if we I do my crazy shopping in Bangkok City. ?)

#1. Seek breathtaking Sunflower field

One of the main thing that attracts me come to Khao Yai is getting the chance to see sunflower FIELD!!!

Our plan A was to visit sunflower field at Pak Chong (nearby Pete Maze in Khao Yai, just within 20km from Birder’s Lodge). It is the nearest sunflowers plantation can be found in Khao Yai according to the research that I did before our trip. Unfortunately, there wasn’t any sunflower when we had arrived there. What we saw was just sunflower’s plant/leaves only. Guess that sunflowers already been harvested and the plants we saw were the second batch? lol !!! Anyway, we found stunning yellow flowers fields in Pak Chong instead of sunflowers. It is the same yellow flowers we saw later in PB Valley.

I was so disappointed and in dilemma to decide whether we should depart to Saraburi/Lop Buri just for Sunflowers. Saraburi is not in Khao Yai, but another 2 hours from Khao Yai. In the end, we decided to hunt sunflowers in Saraburi. Again we were disappointed, we couldn’t easily see any sunflowers by the road that we supposed to. Up until on the way we decided to U-Turn and back, we saw yellowww! I was super thrilled that finally get to see enchanting sunflower field even it is not in the glory full bloom yet.

This is my first time seeing sunflower fields in real life! The weather was so sunny and hot until we couldn’t open our eyes. But I know it is the perfect weather for photography and I can bear with it in the magnificent sea of yellow.

2 hours to here not just for a glimpse of the sunflowers only, but taking a nice picture of me with my bf ♥!

#2. Visit lush vineyard & winery at PB Valley

If you never have seen a vineyard or winery, may consider come to PB Valley when you are in Khao Yai. A great place to enjoy beautiful lush natural landscapes.
We bought our tickets on the spot, but it is strongly recommended to make your own reservation in advance. Check out more info on their website http://www.khaoyaiwinery.com . There are only 5 tours conducted daily, which are 9am, 10.30am, 12pm, 1.30pm & 3.30pm. We were lucky that we able to catch the 3.30pm tour. You will get to join with other tourists riding the vehicle like in the above picture, instead of walking. Riding the vehicle to visit the countless vineyards and enjoy the beautiful views along the way comfortably. The tour guide was with us on the ride too. She introduced the plantations and explained the process of harvesting the grapes along the ride.

This was one of the vineyards we get to stop by for a limited time. The grapes aren’t too big though, as it is still growing.

This was my first time visiting vineyards! With grapes, like so real!

The whole tour took approximately 1 hour plus including visit the places of wine-making, grapes-sorting, etc. You will learn the pieces of knowledge about the wine-making process if you are willing to listen to the tour guide’s explanations. Anyway, I wasn’t listening at all haha because I have bad listening skill.

The whole warehouse/factory are separated into many sections of cold rooms for different purposes. This is the fermenting room!

The Barrels

The tour ended with a wine tasting session. Remember to keep your ticket for this session’s purpose. Few types of wines you will get to taste here! Too bad, I am not a wine lover yet so I opted the kid’s option – Grape Juice. Wasted!

Passed by this scenic yellow flowers field while visiting the vineyards. We were allowed to stop by some minutes for photo-taking purpose!

#3. Feed Alpacas, Donkeys & Sheep at Primo Piazza

Walking along in Primo Piazza, you will feel like you no longer in Thailand but in a mini Italian village!

Love this entrance where the building is covered fully with green plants.

The Mini Netherland’s Windmill

At Primo Piazza, you will get to see and feed Alpacas, Donkeys & Sheep. It was my first time seeing these 3 types of animal, don’t doubt haha! You will be given a bunch of grass at the entrance of the barn for the feeding! It is included in the entrance fees.

The barn’s entrance

Alpacas!  I didn’t manage to take pictures of the sheep and donkeys because the distance between them was too near and I was so panic haha. There are many families bringing their children to Primo Piazza for them to experience feeding these cute animals.

Greenfield outside of the barn

There are few cafes and restaurants here, all of them are serving Italian cuisine or European style food. You can opt to sit down to enjoy a cup of coffee with a slice of cake or even grab an ice cream if you have no interest in photography or either feeding the animals here haha!

#4. Experience luxurious tent camping at Lala Mukha 

If you are looking for a camp style accommodation in Khao Yai, Lala Mukha Tented Resort is definitely worth a try! We chose to stay in their Deluxe Tent with en-suite bathroom during our second night in Khao Yai.

Note: LED Lights Décor is made & prepared by our own.

Clean & Spacious Deluxe Tent

There is plenty of things you can do in Lala Mukha to relax far away from city life. Nature trekking, swimming in an infinity pool, and etc. Check out my detailed blog post here to find out more.

#5. Gift Shopping at Palio Khao Yai & Chocolate Factory

Palio Khao Yai

The third day we were in Khao Yai was the day we visited many places, as we had skipped a lot on the previous days. We feel like the sun goes down faster everyday haha, so it’s best to leave the hotel early in the morning if you want to visit more places.
Palio Khao Yai is another themed village. It’s an exotic Italian-themed village! Almost same with Primo Piazza, but here mainly for souvenirs shopping or take pictures like you are really in Italy!

Almost all the shops had closed down when we arrived there from PB Valley. We went to Palio Khao Yai mainly because I wanted to buy postcards. Luckily, some gift shops were still opened and I managed to buy my postcards!

Thanks to my boyfriend helped me carry my bags all the way ♥

After we bought our postcards and some souvenirs at Palio Khao Yai, we went to have smoked-meats as our dinner at Khrua Khao Yai. But, we were not satisfied with their food at all.

 Chocolate Factory & Restaurant

We then headed to the opposite of the restaurant which is the Chocolate Factory. It was too late, misled from Google Map info closing time stated at 9.30pm. Guess that’s the time for the restaurant and not the shop. Feeling little sad because we thought to buy some sweet treats here as my bf is a chocolate-lover. So what we did was enjoying the X’mas décor view outside the shop & restaurant for a while. Beside shopping & dine in here, you also can sign up their workshops to make your very own handcrafted chocolates and bring them home. Check out their website for more info or to make a reservation!

Still able to see this scene through a locked window glass door.

#6. Drop by castle-like Midwinter Green restaurant

Departed from Chocolate Factory to the famous spot in Khao Yai – The Midwinter Green. It is a huge castle-like architecture with modern European design. In fact, this place is a multi-cuisine restaurant which mainly serves European styled dishes.

We never dine in here, just dropped by here for a look. If you are looking for a romantic dinner in Khao Yai, may try it out here. The overall atmosphere and design of the restaurant were really enchanting.

The entire place looks like a place in fairytale scene! Taking a proper couple picture is our must-do!

#7. Live your road trip dream in a caravan of Casa De Montana

Since we were renting a car in Khao Yai and we had all the freedom to go anywhere at any time we want, even stay at different accommodations for all the nights! Travel on a road trip in a recreational vehicle/Campervan is always my in my bucket list. Before living my road trip dream in a real winter weather and at a place like New Zealand, I decided to first experience staying in a static white caravan for our third night in Khao Yai! The place called Casa De Montana, located in the heart of the natures and mountains of Khao Yai!

There were only 5 independent caravans surrounding with lush greenery and many matching white-coloured bougainvillaea flowers. At Casa De Montana, you are not only can find caravans, but also another 5 container hotels with many convenient facilities, even an outdoor Jacuzzi facility!

I really love the ambience outside the caravan, it was so exquisite and cosy! It felt like an English garden of somewhere else.

On the morning before we depart back to Bangkok City, the weather temperature dropped a lot, to 18° Celsius maybe.

Special thing here is you can have fun with the resident rabbits! They were quite a few of them jumping around in the garden, seeking for fun & food. Surprisingly, one of them even approached me while I was sitting on the wooden bench in the garden.

The interior of our caravan:
We chose the cheapest caravan. As expected, the space inside the caravan was very limited, almost can fit 1 person only! My bf with tall height was hard to shower in the toilet.

We were actually so disappointed with many things are broken in the caravan, like the doorknob, cabinet, tv holder. The water heater also wasn’t working well, which we need it desperately on the day with low temperature. We had asked the staff to come and fix, but it ended up working for only a few minutes just after they left.

3rd night using my LED lights to decor! My bf already fell asleep deeply while I am writing my postcards in the late midnight!

Casa De Cafe (Coffee | Bakery | Eatery )
The entire restaurant is very big with many tables located in different places. We sat outside and it was really chilled having breakfast in a cold weather.

I would say that the best part of staying in Casa De Montana is you will get a delicious complimentary king breakfast at their cafe. Each of us gets 1 big bowl of delicious porridge, toasts, American breakfast, a salad and even a platter of fruits!

#8. Indulge in authentic local Thai food at Rabieng-Pa Khao Yai

There weren’t many restaurants with reviews can be found in Google Map. This was the only one I found with many reviews, which were pretty good and mainly left by local Thailand people.

As we skipped our lunch, we decided to have our dinner here earlier at evening time. It is not a fancy restaurant but a restaurant lies within nature surrounding which is not far from the roadside.

This place serves many local Thai foods and made me feel to order a lot while flipping their menu. I wanted to try more food, but all the dishes’ potions were fixed, so we ended up ordering these 3 dishes which were quite a big portion for 2 persons.

Surprisingly, this place is not crowded with customers. There was only 1 occupied table at that time but still took a long wait for the food. But anyway the food quality made us feel worth the wait!

Dish name in Thai : Tom-Yum Goong-Mae-Num
Dish name in English : Hot and Sour Giant Freshwater Prawns Soup with Mushroom and Coriander.
This Tom Yum wasn’t too spicy as we asked for, and rich in coconut aroma, suitable for people who can’t take too spicy food like my bf. Prawns were big and they were 6 pieces.

Dish name in Thai : Poo-Mah Lon
Dish name in English : Blue Swimming Crab in Coconut Cream

Dish name in Thai : Krong Moo Yahng
Dish name in English : Charcoal-Grilled Pork Spare Rib

Overall, we enjoyed these delicious & authentic local Thai food at the cosy & quiet environment. We actually hoped to dine in here again on the next day, unfortunately, their opening hours very short, just 5 pm to 9 pm only and close on our next day – Thursday. Anyway, this was one of the best meal in Khao Yai if you ask me! It’s a local hidden gem. We spent 1,080 Baht in total for this delicious Thai cuisine!

#9. Stay at unique Birder’s Lodge & Café-hopping at Birder’s Lodge Café

This was the place we stayed for the first night in Khao Yai. Over here we had an amazing BBQ dinner night & a self-cooked breakfast in the morning! It is a specially designed small wooden house surrounded by beautiful lush nature.

Outside of the lodges, there is a stunning café which also belongs to the lodge too. We love the ambience and the design of the café. Probably a café hopping’s paradise that you don’t wish to skip. Both lodge and café are highly recommended for you to stay and visit.

#10.  24 hours in Bangkok City

Lunch at SomTam Nua

After returned our car at the airport, we headed to our hostel in Pratunam area by UBER. We were not staying in a dorm but their double bedroom. I love the location which is very near the Platinum Mall, but we didn’t have time to shop there due to the JAMMM in Bangkok City.

After we checked in and took some rest, we went to have our lunch at the famous SomTam Nua nearby Siam Square Soi5. Feeling great that got the chance to come back here after years to fix my cravings of their spicy food.

Passed by KICKS Soda drink’s booth when walking towards to the SomTam Nua. Bought one just to quench our thirst on the hot weather of Bangkok.

Shop at Siam Square Soi5 Season Market

After the meal, we walked around Siam Square Soi5’s season market outside of the restaurant. Managed to buy 2pcs of clothes to appease my shopping fix.

The Crowd

Café-hopping at Pool Time Café

Knew the traffic jam in Bangkok City is very serious but never expect we will arrive at this cafe during dinner time. Totally wasted a lot of our times in Bangkok City. Plus, can you believe that we spent MYR 33 on the Uber ride just to come here?? The peak hour rates!

The good thing was there is no crowd in the cafe, just us! The bad thing was no cute Raccoon service, which is the main reason we chose this café to visit. They had posted on their Facebook page during our trip, but sadly I forgot to check the latest updates before we depart.

“Raccoon Zone is temporarily closed due to Raccoons mating season which makes the Raccoon uncomfortable and irritable. We afraid they will be harmful to the customers. BTW the café’ section is still open as usual. ” Source : Pool Time Café’s Facebook Page.

The second reason to here is drinking their pastel-coloured milkshake! It was yummy and unique with the colourful topping and skittles in the drink. The Pretzel is FREE to get at the counter!
Note: Pimtha came here before hehe

Third reason : Look at this fully pinky interior! ♥

After spent some times to relax here and enjoy our drink to make our Uber fees more worthy (lol), we then went back to the hostel. We got ourselves a fantastic foot massage session just right beside our hostel. It was reallyyy good and I fall asleep.

Supper at Jeh O Chula, BKK

From hostel, we departed to the street food stalls outside of the CentralWorld, but unfortunately, it was closed due to government’s notice bla bla. We had no idea what to eat that time, so we changed our plan to go nearby BIG C to shop our snacks & souvenirs.

After dropped our things in the hostel then we went to the famous Jeh O Chula at downtown. Be ready for the insane waiting time. Don’t be like us come here to have your dinner because you will die of hunger! Took our number upon arrival, and we had queued for about an hour plus to finally get our table! Advance booking is actually available via phone call.
Their signature dish – MAMA Tom Yam Instant Noodles which only available after 11 pm. This noodle comes in different potions and toppings. It was delicious but again we ordered not too spicy version (my bf can’t take too spicy), so I think the original taste should be more spicy and delicious. This dish is not only looking mouthwatering but the ingredients that included is really good – Egg yolks, squid, shrimps, meatballs, crispy roasted pork. This costs 250 Baht/bowl.

Another famous dish – Thai style Salmon Sashimi at 250 Baht/dish. The salmon was so thick and a lot of pieces, even we ordered the small size one. The salmon was so fresh and in a thick cut! But, it was too spicy & sour for me, which kind of covered up the original salmon’s taste.

Overall, we hope that can return here to try their wide selection of Thai food. Drop by here for a supper is highly recommended.

# How to go Khao Yai from Bangkok (BKK) & Getting around in Khao Yai by car renting.

As there is limited public transport in Khao Yai, renting a car is highly recommended in Khao Yai. We also want a free and flexible trip, so we decided to rent a car and drive by ourselves! You can do it with your latest Malaysian driving license. Not much concern, just drive properly and follow the general driving rules. The driver’s seat is located on the same side with Malaysia one, the RIGHT side. For navigation, we just used Google Map or Waze for our entire road trip. The route to Khao Yai from the airport is also very easy, it’s a highway. My boyfriend and I take turn to drive. I was the one who drove back to Bangkok as my bf wasn’t feeling so well.

Our car was collected at BKK Don Mueang Airport, and from the airport to Khao Yai is nearer compared to Bangkok City. So, we decided not to waste our time, we picked up our car and drove to Khao Yai in 2 hours distance right after we landed at Don Mueang Airport. Upon collecting your car, you will be required to show your license, and credit card for deposit.

How to rent a car in Khao Yai:

We book our car at Thai Rent Car –  http://bit.ly/2F9VLeF

Type & Cost of car renting:

3 days around RM 300, Toyota Yaris Auto

Picked up our car key at this booth, which located between Gate 10 & 11 in the airport.

Tips for car renting :
  1. Remember to check your car thoroughly upon picking up, everything looks fine and works fine by the time they pass you the key.
  2. Make sure you return your car on time to the same place with a full tank of petrol. Otherwise, fines & surcharges will be applied.

We were in an emergency. My bf wasn’t feeling well on the morning to return our car, so we had no choice and were late to pump petrol and return the car. The high cost of the fines and petrol were charged on us.

If you don’t wish to rent a car, maybe can try the following :

  1. KLOOK- http://bit.ly/2GZIw0y
  2. Contact your accommodation’s staff whether they can arrange transport for your trip.
  3. Check out http://bit.ly/2CRd5EN for other ways to go Khao Yai.

This is the car we rent – Toyota Yaris Auto

What to eat on the way to Khao Yai from BKK :

If you plan to drive to Khao Yai right after landed at airport or 2 hours ride is just too long for you and you worry you have nothing to feed your stomach on the way. Don’t worry! Just refer to the Google Map, you actually can find:
7-eleven, Big C, KFC, Burger King, Starbucks, local steakhouse (สตง สเต็ก), etc. along the highway to Khao Yai.

We dropped by a local food court called Kao Kaeng Baan Suan 2 on Google Map. It is located the right middle of our route from the airport to Khao Yai, which you can easily spot beside the highway. Countless mouth-watering local food stalls and souvenir vendors can be found here. The whole place was crowded with local people especially the students.

Outside of the food court

Bought this Panda-flavoured popcorn as our snack.

Inside the food court

We never eat here but bought 2 boxes of cake, as we felt curious about the super long queue in a cake shop located beside the food court. Both sides of the food court have the same cake shops too. What made us even surprised was each of them not just buying 1 box but a stack of boxes.

Wide selections of flavour on the same square-shaped cake can be found. We bought 1 butter cake-flavoured and 1 cheese-flavoured. Both of it taste yummy and very smooth in terms of the texture.

After seeing the words on the plastic, only knew it is a milk cake haha!  Milk Cake Baan Suan is the shop’s name I guess.

# Tips of the trip

Most of the people in Khao Yai only speak in Thai, it is quite hard to communicate when you have a question along the trip.

Khao Yai is a small region, so do not worry you get lost there, as long as keep yourself connected to the web.

Hai..would like to ask. Is it possible if we just rent the car from the counter without booking. Thank you. Nice blog and so informative anyway.😁

Hihi, I don’t think can rent a car on the spot at the counter, it is advisable to book in advance and they will prepare the car outside of the airport for you. Thanks for reading my blog and hope my answer helps you. 😄
