To get to Park Sam Roi Yod , you better be conveyed . However minivans that leave from Bangkok Southern Bus Terminal to Pranburi and can bring you directly to your resort in or near the park for around 300 THB . Otherwise , go to Pranburi and then hire the services of a moto- taxi (150-200 THB ) . Note that there is a town called Sam Roi Yod next to the park with a small train station where trains stop there but rarely motorcycle taxis waiting there , it is not necessarily a good way to get to the park .
