Jungle Way

Back to nature

What we say: 3.5 stars

When we last arrived at Jungle Way, the place had a slightly abandoned air and only two gentle dogs were there to greet us. We began to think it was closed until a soft-spoken man emerged from one of the bungalows and assured us that it was open, though it was just getting back into full swing after closing for the rains. If you're seeking a back-to-nature experience and don't mind roughing it, this could be just the ticket. The basic stilted woven bamboo huts are showing their age, but porches perched directly over a babbling brook are as serene as ever. Rooms come only with a firm mattress on the floor, mosquito net, fan and a couple of windows. Most huts rely on cold-water shared bathrooms, one larger hut has a private bath. An inviting open-air lounge/restaurant has some interesting paintings, a TV and a couple of musical instruments scattered around. The place is a reasonable walk from Ban Kwan Chang elephant camp and Nang Yom Waterfall. Great hiking opportunities abound in this area, and Jungle Way arranges treks during high season. If you call ahead, they'll pick you up at the pier for free. To get here from the ferry ports on your own, head to Khlong Son, turn left (east) just after the 7-eleven and keep following the road until you see Jungle Way's faded old sign pointing into a rubber tree grove. From there, park your bike and cross the stream.
