Khao Laem National Park

Khao Laem National Park

The wooden walking trail along the rocky coast has had better days, so watch out for some loose steps and dodgy passages on the sometimes slippery rocks. It’s always worth to take a boat ride – long tail boats available from the bridge at After building the damm villages and their temples where flooded and the temple went partially or totally underwater. It was worth coming but do NOT come here expecting to catch fish like on the YouTube videos Bangkok hooker and fishing ez.

You can take a boat tour from Mon bridge, which is the longest wooden pedestrian bridge in Thailand. The boat would take you to the sites of underwater temples and to historic temples that are still on dry banks. It is a far away, few hours car drive from Bangkok to near Myanmar border beyond Kanchanaburi but worth visiting.

I boarded at the base of the wooden bridge and the driver cruised me around to some interesting sights. At one point he dropped me off on shore across the lake to visit a dilapidated temple on a Glacier National Park To Great Falls Mt. Not really worth the trouble. I was on the lake from Khao Laem National Park to 10AM. Felt that this was worth the money. Also, there are food and drinks for sale at the “dock”.

We stayed at VIP Floatel and the food was good, iced coffee delicious, room bungalow overlooking the dam decent enough. Simple, 1 plug, 1 TV, nothing fancy. Staff speaks a little English. Can swim in the dam. Can take a boat and see beautiful birds, trees, Buffalo, cows etc. It was worth coming but do NOT come here expecting to catch fish like on the YouTube videos Bangkok hooker and fishing ez.

We tried for 2 days, 2 full days Khao Laem National Park got nothing. The pros with us also tried and got nothing. My understanding is that these youtube videos are fake with actors who had paid for their promos, fish fed and scouted for days beforehand, and fish bought and out in water, etc.

Fake basically. But it is a very relaxing place so I’d recommend for a holiday.
