More on Khao Yai National Park


The language commonly spoken. (only if it is diiferent from the rest of the country) How easy it is to be understood in English?

There are no bars in the park, but outside there are a few places you can buy drinks from.

Within the visiting center, there is a souvenir shop selling t-shirts, caps, etc, and most importantly, leech-socks for trekkers to prevent leech getting into the shoes.

There are a number of caf_-type food stalls distributed inside the park. Most of them are not open out of season. They offer snacks, drinks, some Thai food, and some have an English menu too. Outside the park, Thanarat road has many restaurants and food stalls, some very famous for smoked ribs. Nina's is a well known restaurant with an English and Thai menu.
