3-hour Excursion at Sirinath National Park
Sirinath National Park is one of the well preserved natural areas in North Western coast of Phuket. During our trip, we came to know quite a bit about the history and features of the land. The area, which includes up to 5 kilometres to the sea, was designated as a National Park by the Royal Forest Department in 1981. It was originally named Had Nai Yang but was renamed to Sirinath Marine National Park to commemorate the 60th anniversary of Queen Sirikit in 1992.
We knew that it is not one of the most diverse forests in the world but certainly offered more than we expected.

Walk back to Perennial Resort
Barring that, the surrounding greenery and the proximity to the sea and airport was just what we wanted.
We reached the Sirinath National Park at around 4pm because that is the time after which the entrance is free.
The viewpoint is less than a kilometer from the resort. So, we thought it was not a big deal if we did not have the luck to see the big giant this time but luck was with us 🙂
After the viewing, we headed to the south where the beach forest is.
Wet season prevails in the park from May to September and as our trip was in the dry season in March, we got to enjoy the best of the area. Scrolling inside the beach forest is so relaxing especially when the sea breeze hit on us.
The best time to dine in this place is around 6pm because you can watch the sunset while having your dinner.
We will gladly recommend Sirinath National Park Excursion and the related activities to anyone who wants to be really pleased with his holiday vacation.
We experienced the Nature up-close and were amazed by the aero planes and everything that could be seen only in Phuket. The flora and fauna, beaches and forests that comprise the national park are definitely worth the visit. And 3 hours is all it takes to experience it to the fullest!
