How to go to Khao Yai from Bangkok?

Take the bus from Mo Chit North Bus Terminal to Pak Chong, it’s the nearest town to Khao Yai. The travel time would approximately take about 3 hours. The fare is 104 Baht as of November 2016. From Pak Chong, you have to take a cab to Primo Piazza.

Khao Yai is such an interesting place to Explore. I would definitely go back and visit the Sunflower Field and Stay in a LOTR theme Hotel.
