The southern border of Thailand, besides the glamour of the Gulf of Thailand and the Andaman Sea, is also endowed with enticing forests. Budo – Su-Ngai Padi National Park is another recommended tourist attraction. The Park is in Ban Pajo, Bacho Subdistrict, Bacho District, Narathiwat province. Inside the Park, there is the Pajo Waterfall, which is a beautiful natural site.

His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej The Great and Her Majesty Queen Sirikit The Queen Mother once visited this park, took a photo, and engraved His Majesty’s acronym and Her Majesty’s name “Sirikit” in gold on a large rock near the cliff of Pajo Waterfall. The people of Narathiwat have been overjoyed about this visit and engraving to this very day.

Budo – Su-Ngai Padi National Park houses another astonishing wonder hidden deep in the forest. According to research from 2015 – 2018, there are more than 100 species of butterflies, and it is the only location in Thailand with rare wild butterflies, which usually inhabit lush forests. Tourists who love butterfly watching usually visit the Park on their own to take photos of the breath-taking scenery, as memorable souvenirs from their visit to Narathiwat province.

As you venture round the natural paths by Pajo Waterfall, you will see butterflies, which fly over on a regular basis to lay their eggs on various plants in the area. Map butterflies, Judy butterflies, oakblue butterflies, Helen butterflies, Pan butterflies, five-ring butterflies, chocolate grass yellow butterflies, and Pierrot butterflies, will show themselves, rendering us amazed as we take photos to show everyone.

This is another miraculous elegance hidden within the forest along the Southern border. Everyone is invited to visit the Park and experience its natural wonder
