No Grab, no Metter teksi in Khao Yai, I highly recommend you self drive in Khao Yai or charter a private car.

Day 1 , we travel from Changi  to Bangkok. Car rental procedure which is rather easy, we book online rent from Sixt . we did all the registration in airport counter and got the car via shelter . I tied to search the car return Sixt, but unable to find this place , hence please key in to  Google map -Avis Airport car return .

This is my favour dessert -Thai Milk Tea Kakigori  ,  the restaurant is always crowded. But it’s definitely worth the price and waiting time! There’s free flow tea (self service)

We check in at Centara Grand at Central plaza, we had our dessert ( After you) and diner at shopping center next door ( Central Plaza).

The line donut was so cute, Lion Donut café, hence we took away 2 of them, basically I don’t like donut but brought for fun.

Day 2

we drive more than 3  hours to reach Khao Yai, this is because traffic jam at Bangkok area,  and many Truck  at high way hence we not drive fast .

we checked in to our hotel -Thames Village about noon time and started our journey at Khao Yai. our hotel look like a England village , and tis is totally difference experience with outside.

Our First Station -Palio Italy -not too far from our hotel just 3 minute drive, Palio is a Italian themed market square where you can get a little shopping done. Entrance is free and we were really quite amazed at the details they tried to replicate for an immersive out of the country experience. From the architecture of the buildings, to the stone cobbled streets, they even had accordion music playing in the speakers, throughout the streets!
