How to Get There
Vana Nava Water Jungle is in the Nong Kae district of Hua Hin, about 2.5 miles (4 kilometers) south of Hua Hin train station. If you’re traveling reasonably early in the day and are confident with Thai local transport, catch the baht bus (songthaew or covered pickup) from the station—look for white songthaew with blue lettering. Many travelers will find it easier to book a package that includes transfers.
When to Get There
Vana Nava Water Jungle is open from morning until early evening, seven days a week. Hua Hin is a popular weekend escape from Bangkok, so aim to visit during the working week to beat the lines.
The Best Slides at Vana Nava Water Jungle
Besides a wealth of pools and a lazy river, it’s the high-drama slides that make Vana Nava Water Jungle so special. The Abyss is 92 feet high (28 meters high) and features a dramatic raft ride around a funnel. AquaLoop includes a full loop at speeds up to 37 mph (60 kph), while Freefall begins with a near-vertical drop. The Boomerango, one of Thailand’s longest slides, extends 587 feet (179 meters).
