Thai Mueang National Park
The park occupies an area of 45,000 rais (18,000
acres). It was declared a national park on April 14, 1988.
Interesting attractions in the park include:
Namtok Lampi, located at Mu 6, Tambon Thai Mueang, on Phetkasem
Road (Highway No.4), between kilometre markers 32 and 33,
and taking an unpaved access road for another 1.5 kilometres.
It is a 6-tiered waterfall that runs all year round.
Namtok Ton Phrai can be reached by taking
a 7-kilometre unpaved access road between kilometre markers
28 and 29 and then continue on foot for another kilometre.
It is a huge waterfall that runs all year round. Visitors
are encouraged to visit the falls in the dry season, as access
will be easier.
Hat Thai Mueang, located in the Thai Mueang
Sanitary area. Going into the area, take the right-hand road
for about 1.5 kilometres, then drive another 5 kilometres
on the beach road to the National Park office. The 13-kilometre
long beach has fine white sand and runs along the Highway.
The area is blessed with crystal clear water. The recommended
time to visit is between November and February. Sea turtles
come to lay their eggs on the shore, thus creating a tradition
of walking on the beach to watch turtles lay their eggs on
a moonlit night. When the eggs hatch, you can join in releasing
them into the sea during the “ Sea Turtle Festival” in March
