Well, this place turned out to be a fantastic discovery on the Sok River! firstly, our accommodation at Morning Mist Resort was a lovely river view hut set amongst the most tasteful and well-maintained of flower gardens

and the added bonus of a teeny swimming pool and free wifi. Plus the food was pretty good and we were only a very short walk down the road from the actual National Park entrance.

Every day brought a new beautifully decorated fruit juice using combinations of petals and flora from the garden.

From this base, we spent a day exploring the rainforest and many waterfalls on foot (seriously hot and sweaty), plus the huge man-made Ratchaprapha lake that is bordered by karst mountains and rainforest, plus a challenging 'bat cave' tour which we undertook. We also treated ourselves, after such sweaty endeavours, to a full Thai massage (twice!) Lots of yanking, clicking and crunching of bones, intended to open up the chakkras and help you limber up.

If you're very lucky, you'd get to see the world famous Rafflesia flower, which is the largest species of flower in the world but is actually apparently a parasite.
