Popular all-in budget option
A long-running and popular choice for a package including room and tour, Greenleaf does a fine job of helping budget travellers enjoy Khao Yai on the cheap.
Located right along Thanarat about halfway between the park’s northern gate and Pak Chong, Greenleaf greets you with a simple roofed eatery that looks more like part of a ramshackle house -- blink and you’ll miss it. Stroll out back to find a handful of basic but clean rooms set in a few longhouse-style buildings with tables out front. Rooms come with nothing but fans, thin mattresses set over tile floors, windows and attached wet bathrooms with cold-water showers. There’s not much ambiance but we had no complaints for the prices.
Rooms are only offered to those who book tours through Greenleaf; we talked to a few travellers who were happy with the tour, accommodation and Thai food served up front. The company also offers free WiFi, pick-up service in Pak Chong, and help with transport to/from the campgrounds inside the park. If you seek the cheapest way to experience Khao Yai with few hassles, Greenleaf remains a solid option.
