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, and after the overhead road veers away from Route 2 (where you are driving), 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.

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