2 Day Side Trip to Khao Sok National Park worthwhile on way to Ao Nang?

Jump to last reply

My fiancé and I will will be finishing up our honeymoon (late Nov/Dec) in Ao Nang area after spending 3 nights in Bangkok and 5 nights in Chiang Mai (excited to see Loy Krathang and staying at Ping nakara after getting some recommendations from you! :))

We will be arriving in Phuket on November 30th and wanted to see if it is worthwhile to make a trip up to the Khao Sok national park and stay in a bungalow or a treehouse in the park before heading down to the Krabi District. Initially we were planning on just taking a bus down to Ao Nang from Phuket, but then I was intrigued by what I saw about the park and the lake.

Is it a worthwhile side trip or will it make things to hectic? We will only have about 6 more nights to explore Southern Thailand....Any comments or suggestions would be great! Would it be better to do the park after Ao Nang or before? Or skip it altogether?

Otherwise we will spend our time checking out the following:
*Railay Beach
*Phi Phi islands
*Phang Nga Bay

And time permitting check out the Tiger Cave Temple, the emerald pool and hot springs...

Some other possible interesting places/islands were Koh racha, and Koh Mook...your thoughts on those?

We have not booked any accommodations in the south of thailand yet (or our flights) and our trying to work out the final details...

Thanks in advance for any assistance!
