Khao Sam Roi Yot National Park 

        Khao Sam Roi Yot National Park was Thailand's first national park located at the coast. It was declared a national park in 1996 and covers an area of 98.8 square kilometers.

        The topography of the park is high limestone mounts with a marshy beach and shallow saline water pond. The park has a flat area which has stagnant water right round the year. This area is a freshwater marsh called Thung Sam Roi Yot and covers and area of 36.8 square kilometers.

        The name of the park can be translated into the Mountain with Three Hundred Peaks. This name comes from the gray limestone mountains that rise majestically from the Gulf of Thailand attaining a maximum height of 605 meters. The mountains are wooded but there is a freshwater marsh as well as saline coastal habitat that are highly conducive to the ecology of the area.

        There are many attractions in the park, including sandy beaches, caves, mountain viewpoints, offshore islands, estuarine and mangrove habitats, and forest trails. This ends up making Khao Sam Roi Yot National Park one of the most interesting and attractive parks in Thailand.

        The park is covered with evergreen and deciduous forests along with shrubs that grow on thin soil and rocks. You can find many birds, amphibians, reptiles and small mammls near the freshwater marsh, which provides an important ecological habitat in the park.

        The interior inaccessible mountainous area is home to Serow, which is a goat-like antelope now rare in Thailand. If you want to spot these rare animals, it is best to bring your binoculars and scan the mountains either early in the morning or in the evening. The park is also home to the spectacled langur, crab-eating macaque and the slow loris. In addition, there are barking deer, Malayan pangolins, Palm civet, Malayan porcupines, Javanese mongooses, Siamese hare and gray-billed squirrels. Occasionally you can see dolphins frolicking in the coastal waters.

        Khao Sam Roi Yot National Park has around 300 species of birds, including migratory birds that come from Siberia, China and northern Europe during November and make their return journey between March and May.
