Khao Yai Tiang, 22/23 Oct 2022

Main Resort

Baan Subsilathong Resort (บ้านทรัพย์ศิลาทอง)

This is a beautiful resort built into a hillside, with 25 rooms ranging from doubles to dorm style rooms with multiple beds. Rooms are THB 1,500 for the first 2 occupants and THB 500 per additional occupant, including breakfast.

The name of the resort is written in Thai, and it has no English website or English documentation. Here is a link to the resort’s Facebook page in Thai language. The rooms only have soap, so bring your own shampoo and/or conditioner.

Since the resort only has 25 rooms, reserve early. To reserve a room, email the Co-Hare Peter ‘Creamy Ending’ du Pont.

Moonstar is a pleasant and comfortable resort about 2 blocks (300 meters) from the main resort. It has 10 rooms with king and twin beds and a nice view over the valley around Lam Takong Reservoir. Rooms are THB 1,500, including breakfast.

Misdirections

  • Resort: Baan Subsilathong (บ้านทรัพย์ศิลาทอง), Tambon Khlong Phai, Amphoe Sikhio, Chang Wat Nakhon Ratchasima 30340
  • Tel: 090 267 3434
  • Map location: https://goo.gl/maps/U2RLfKLA2e92
  • Time: approx. 2.5 to 3+ hours, depending on traffic and exit point from Bangkok
  • Distance: ~200 km
  • Directions:
  1. Take 2nd Stage Expressway north out of Bangkok toward Bang Pa-in
  2. Merge onto Route 1 north toward Saraburi and then go east onto Route 2 at Saraburi. We recommend taking the bypass around Saraburi (Route 362) and then merge onto Route 2 toward Khorat (Nakhon Ratchasima).

  3. Follow Highway 2 through Pakchong. About 30 mins after Pakchong, you will see wind turbines in the distance on a large mountain on the right side (Khao Yai Tiang).

  4. There will be major elevated road construction. The construction goes for several km. While you are under the elevated construction, Google Maps may direct you to make a U turn and then head up the hill toward the resort. This is a back way on a narrow road, which is harder to drive, and only saves a couple of minutes. We recommend you NOT take this turn. Instead, continue on the main highway (Route 2). About 2 km after the overhead road veers away from Route 2, take a U-turn near the top of a hill after km marker 89.

  5. After you take the U turn, drive back (toward Bangkok) on Route 2, for about 3 km, and take a left at a small intersection immediately after passing under a pedestrian bridge (see photos below). As you drive up the hill you will catch sight of windmills above the treetops in front of you. And you will also see a very tall blue sign with directions to many different resorts and sites on Khao Yai Tiang.
    Take a look at the photo album for extra information, ensuring you won't miss a turn

  6. Drive up the road about 5 km, and you will see the resort on your left.
