Khao Yai National Park, Yellow Submarine (26 April 2019)

Khao Yai National Park

Khao Yai National Park

After breakfast, we head over to Khao Yai National Park. I thought it would be the kind of park we have back in Singapore. The one where you can stroll with your family or dogs, but I was wrong. Fluffy Bunny drove and we had to purchase an entrance ticket for both ourselves and the car.

It was a long drive up the mountain. Basically, once you bought the tickets and enter, you’re already in the National Park. Fluffy Bunny told me that we might see wildlife crossing the road or walking along the side of the road. Thus I kept trying to see if I can spot any.

Many said they spotted an elephant in the park. What we spotted were many monkeys and a lone deer.

After asking for direction, we head off to Haew Suwat Waterfall. One of the must-see waterfall in National Park. But was told it wasn’t the best season to see a waterfall due to dry weather.

When we arrive, it started to drizzle a little and we had to make a quick trip down to see the waterfall. We had to descend down a flight of stairs and walk quite a bit distance before we get to see the waterfall from a far distance.

As it’s a rather dry season, the stream of the waterfall was quite pathetic. It wasn’t what I expected after seeing pictures online. It’s just a tiny stream of water flowing down. Nevertheless, the sight was breathtaking due to the surrounding it was in.

We drove further into the National Park for Pha Diew Dai Cliff. I have no idea what it was as I thought the reason we visit the park was that I requested to see the waterfall. As head up further, it started to rain heavier. Which decrease the chances of seeing wildlife in the park.

Getting to this cliff requires a long drive up the mountain. There’s no sign to say where’s the exact location. We saw some cars being parked by the roadside and we followed suit. Seeing there’s a stair leading down to a path, we decided to do some walking. It was wet and cold weather during our walk, sadly we didn’t bring any jacket or shawl to keep us warm. Because we didn’t expect such a sudden change in temperature and weather.

Once we arrived at Pha Diew Dai Cliff, the view is worth the cold and wet weather. It’s simply breathtaking but you have to be careful. There’s no barrier to prevent you from falling over. So do remember to stand behind the yellow line for your safety.

After our trip at the National Park, we head over Yellow Submarine for some refreshment. It’s one of the recommended cafes in Khao Yai.

Tea Break

Fluffy Bunny ordered latte while I ordered a cold refreshment, mint lime. We ordered chocolate lava cake to munch too.

The place was quiet when we’re there. Great for relaxing and enjoy your afternoon snacks. The place is quite Instagram worthy too. Many locals and tourists would be standing around the building for some photo takings.
