Christmas in Khao Yai National Park

We decided to spend Christmas Eve and most of Christmas Day in and around Khao Yai National Park. Khao Yai is a rapidly developing area which is about an hour's drive west of where we live.

First stop was a PTT Park filling station where we fueled up the car and had a visit with Santa Bear.

Next, the Great Hornbill Restaurant at the PB Valley Khao Yai winery. The desserts are lovely.

Arrival at the Balios Resort Khao Yai.

Room with a view of the pool and rainforest. In the morning we heard an elephant trumpeting somewhere out there.

The Palio shopping center, next to the hotel, was well-decorated for Christmas.

Always time for a coffee break.

Fancy dinner at Buon Appetito, next to the hotel. Probably our most expensive meal ever in Thailand.

Santa made it to Khao Yai.

We stopped for lunch on the way home at Lam Takhong reservoir. Lunch was spicy papaya salad, grilled fish, sticky rice and grilled eggplant. It was very good.

Wat Luang Phor Toh - This is not really a wat, but a shrine to the monk Luang P hor Toh. It is in Sikhiu district, about 40 kilometers from Korat.
