So here we curate don’t-miss destinations in Khao Yai to stir your soul and tempt your wanderlust!
Let’s kick off at “Bucolic Khaoyai Café” where visitors are stunned by its outstanding architecture and the views. The café truly live up to its name, as Bucolic refers to pastoral, countryside or idyll.
It is the place for sitting back and admiring the views of a grassy meadow and mountain range. Nothing could re-energise you better than the aromatic smell of roasted coffee beans and palatable desserts. Half of my day was spent enjoying the scenery and taking countless of photos, so I believe photo enthusiasts would definitely fall in love with this place
A simple trick for great photos is visiting the café early in the morning or late afternoon, like 4 or 5 PM. as the temperature is more comfortable and the light is soft and beautiful.
Open everyday (except Wednesdays) at 09.00 – 17.00 น.
- Stroller and wheelchair friendly
- Pets are allowed in outdoor seating areas
- Generous parking space

The hotel also features “Rabbit Café” a cute coffee shop which was decorated like a rabbit burrow and situated right next to the hotel.
Rabbit Café opens everyday:
- Mondays – Thursdays, at 11.00 – 17.00 hrs.
- Fridays – Sundays, at 10.00 – 18.00 hrs.
Another one on my don’t-miss Destination is “Klang Pana Roses Garden & Café.” Surrounded by rose gardens, the café has just opened in early 2020. My verdict is full marks in terms of ambient because visitors are allowed to roam the rose garden, take photos, enjoy afternoon tea in a very relaxing manner.

If camping and café-hopping are your cup of tea, you will love “Campfire Café Khao Yai” because this place is a combination of coffee shop and tent site amidst lush greenery where you can pleasantly fill your lungs with fresh air.
The uniqueness of this café is its campground where you can bring your own tents to pitch by the River, immersing in the verdant and comfortable atmosphere. On the other hand, you can still enjoy taking photos with the provided camping gears without staying overnight.
