Khao Sok Useful Information: Getting to our Resort

Please let us know when you plan to arrive, and if you would like us to help arrange transportation.

Khao Sok Riverside Cottages is 2km east of Khao Sok town. A link to a map can be found at the bottom of this page.

We are happy to pick you up with a private car from anywhere in Southern Thailand – if you book with us, we’ll have a driver waiting for you and holding a sign with your name.

If you come via public transport, please follow the directions below.

  • Print this map with directions in Thai and English and give it to your van or bus driver.

  • Get dropped off at “Soi Nah-tai”, this is 2km east on the highway from the main bus stop in Khao Sok.

  • You will see a restaurant at the corner of our street and the highway (and marked on the map), where you can wait for us to come get you – keep an eye out for our sign.  Just let the staff at the restaurant know you are going to Riverside Cottages.

If you get off at the Khao Sok bus stop instead, you can either call us for pick up and we’ll come get you, or walk across the highway to the small shop and ask the woman there to call Khao Sok Riverside Cottages. We recommend avoiding the local taxis, as they are often aggressive and try to take you to their friends’ resort instead.
