I loved the red pub. I couldn't wait to spend some time writing in there.

I opted not to go to the Zoo. I much prefer to see animals in their natural habitat. So I ventured to the Khao Yai National Park, Pak Phli Thailand for the day. It was the perfect place for getting up and personal with nature. The park is rich with flora and fauna.

There are many animals inhabiting the national park including elephants, tigers, monkeys, bears, deer and squirrels. There are also various types of snakes like pythons, spiders, rodents and insects. We wore long sleeved clothing and sturdy hiking boots. The park claims to have more than 400 species of birds.
We enjoyed trekking the trails in the park and walked through the nature while enjoying the beautiful mountainous landscape.

Khao Yai National Park is one of the best places in Thailand to see Asian elephants in the wild and we were able to catch a glimpse of the park's wild elephant population, grazing in their natural habitat.

Afterward we stopped at Haew Suwat Waterfall, Khao Yai National Park, Pak Chong Thailand. This was incredible. This waterfall is famous for being the location for Leonardo DiCaprio's waterfall dive in the movie ‘The Beach’ back in 2000.

After an hour we headed on to Haew Narok Waterfall, Khorat Plateau Bangkok, Khao Yai National Park Thailand. These are the highest falls in Khao Yai National Park. It is the park’s star attraction, cascading over three tiers with the final level gushing 80 metres below into a deep pool. Only the first level is open to the public, as the other levels are steep and dangerous. There’s a hillside viewpoint where you can clearly watch and take photos of the waterfall. The Haew Narok Waterfall is a truly breathtaking sight.

This is where we had our picnic by the falls. It was really great to just sit and discuss our favourite aspects of the trip so far. A few of us even wrote a poem and shared it with the others. Mine is still a work in progress...

A taste of the music:
