Palio Khao Yai

Palio Khao Yai

On the north side of the Khao Yai National Park you can find various nice hotels and resorts as well as the Palio Khao Yai shopping destination. I didn’t call it a shopping mall or similar as this place is setup as a small Italian village. While maybe a bit strange to find an Italian village in the middle of Thailand it has a certain charm. The Thai people seem to love to place and also loads of tourists visit Palio Khao Yai daily.

Within Palio Khao Yai you find a range of shops in narrow little streets and small squares as one could find in an old Italian town. Some of the shops are the typical Thai shops you find all over the country but also a range of small boutiques can be found here.

Initially the entrance to Palio Khao Yai was free. Later they startedcharging an entry fee. It wasn’t very much but created a bit of complaints on the internet. Since then the policy was changed again. I am not sure what the latest is here on this so you might want to check this out if you plan to visit Palio Khao Yai and see this as a possible obstacle.

I always loved to come here either after or prior visiting the Khao Yai National Park. One could e.g. make a trip from Bangkok and enter the park via the south side close to Nakhon Nayok. After a visit to the park (see post on the park here) you can take a rest at Palio Khao Yai and have a drink and/or something to eat. I always made it a two day visit and stayed in one of the nearby beautiful resorts. There are plenty to choose from in a wide range of price classes.

I have posted a number of photos below to give you an impression of Palio Khao Yai.

 

Sample Page

This is an example page. It’s different from a blog post because it will stay in one place and will show up in your site navigation (in most themes). Most people start with an About page that introduces them to potential site visitors. It might say something like this:

Hi there! I’m a bike messenger by day, aspiring actor by night, and this is my blog. I live in Los Angeles, have a great dog named Jack, and I like piña coladas. (And gettin’ caught in the rain.)

…or something like this:

The XYZ Doohickey Company was founded in 1971, and has been providing quality doohickies to the public ever since. Located in Gotham City, XYZ employs over 2,000 people and does all kinds of awesome things for the Gotham community.

Chocolate Ville is probably one of the largest restaurants in Bangkok. The restaurant is not one building as one usually expects from a restaurant. Chocolate Ville is a small village with a range of  western style buildings, a lake, windmill as well as a lighthouse.

The tables are located around the water where one enjoys dinner in the open air. There are some indoor options as well but I assume that is mainly used when the outdoor space is full or when the weather is not good. To fill up the outdoor space you need many, really many visitors. But that is common almost every evening. The parking of the restaurant easily fills up but the quiet section of Kaset Nawamin road offers plenty of space to park.
