Khao Sam Roi Yot National Park – Where the mountains meet the sea
One day whilst scrolling through my feed I came across a video of someone boating through a lake filled with blooming pink lotuses. In the background a row of lush and jagged mountains lined the shore, some big and small birds flew by and looked for food amongst the reeds. Learning that this place was only around 300 kilometres away from Bangkok, I quickly added it to my ‘weekends away’ list.
A long weekend rolled around quicker than anticipated and with very little research and planning, we set off to Khao Sam Roi Yot National Park. When I was a kid my parents took us on many road trips around Thailand and one of my favourite things was telling mum to follow blue ‘tourist attraction’ signs that sounded interesting. We would rock up to these places and make it up as we go – getting to explore with no expectations and the spontaneity of it all was very exciting for the mini me.
