Pak Chong

Pak Chong is in Southern Isaan.


Pak Chong (Thai: ปากช่อง) is the westernmost district (amphoe) of Nakhon Ratchasima Province, northeastern Thailand. It is the nearest town serving Khao Yai National Park. It is less than 200 kilometres from Bangkok, making it a very popular base for Thai weekend trippers.

Get in

Long-distance trains from Bangkok to Nong Khai and Ubon Ratchathani stop at Pak Chong railway station, as do local trains connecting Saraburi with Nakhon Ratchasima.

Get around

Mittraphap Road is the main road that leads off route 2 and ultimately back onto it. Most of the accommodation and restaurants are on this road or the sois leading off it.


There are few sights in the town itself, which is mainly a food and sleep place serving as a base for Khao Yai National Park.
