Huay Kaew Waterfall - Popular Waterfall in Chiang Mai

Huay Kaew Waterfall - Popular Waterfall in Chiang MaiHuay Kaew Waterfall has 2 separate waterfalls, Pha Ngerb and Wang Bua Baan. To have a good view of the falls and enjoy the refreshing and cool shade of the many trees you will have to stray a distance of about 100 metres from the main road in Chiang Mai. The white of racing water stands out dramatically against the deep green of the surrounding forest.

However, do check with locals how clean the falls are as during the dry season the sewage from the villages further up the mountain trickles down the falls. Best to sit with a beer or glass of wine at the end of a day and chill out, rather than go for a dip.

This is the closet falls to Chiang Mai town, being a mere 10 minutes drive from city center and a great place to relax with a picnic in Thailand.

Na Muang Waterfall on Samui Island

Na Muang Waterfall on Samui IslandIn the interior of Samui Island are a number of waterfalls that can make an interesting change of pace when you tire of the beach scene. The most popular of these are the Na Muang waterfalls, so called because the rock face is purple.

The Na Muang waterfalls lie south of the island's central peaks, at about the midway point between the two coasts. A paved entrance road leads off the main street connecting Hua Thanon, south of Lamai, to Nathon. There are actually two tiers to the waterfalls. The higher tier requires some trekking, on foot or elephant, to reach.

The lower tier is 30 meters high with water cascading over a sheer rock face into a deep pool that can be nice for swimming if there aren't too many other people. Along the path leading to the waterfalls from the parking area are several souvenir stalls as well as some food stalls that can prepare 'real' Thai food at quite reasonable prices compared to many of the island's restaurants.

Just off the parking lot is a place where you can get an elephant to take you up to the other set of falls, or elsewhere in the interior. Further down the access road from the waterfalls is the self-styled 'Namuang Safari Park' offering elephant rides, monkey shows, and just about anything else to make a buck. Its a bit cheesy but might be good fun if you have children with you.

Wonderful Waterfalls in Phuket

Bang Pae WaterfallPhuket three most famous waterfalls are not nearby the largest in Thailand and in dry season the waterfalls is not worth a visit. The largest waterfall named Bang Pae is only around 18 meters high, not exactly the worlds largest. So you see there is no need to vast a whole day traveling just to take pictures in front of a "big" waterfall.

A much better reason is to get away from the beach and sun if only for a day. But why should someone want to do that? It's easy to have a sunburn on the beach, so visiting a waterfall is your chance to let the skin heal and at the same time experience Phuket only remaining rain forest.

Ton Sai and Bang Pae is located in Khao Phra Thaeo National Park 22 kilometers north of Phuket Town on the way to the airport. Also found at Bang Pae is Gibbon Rehabilitation Project where they try to save pet gibbons that have been abandoned.

Walking up to Bang Pae waterfall from the parking lot take around 10 minutes. Under the waterfall is a small pond where many people take the opportunity to bath in cool water and jump from the waterfall out in the pond (don't try it yourself if you don't know what you are doing).

Ton Sai waterfall is on the other side of the hill not far away from the highway in Thailand where parts of the movie Good Morning Vietnam were filmed. This is a perfect place for picnic in the park, very pretty. Only a short walk from the parking lot. Or you can go hiking and explore the jungle around the waterfall. There are maps of the park and guides waiting to take you trough the jungel over to Bang Pae.

Erawan Waterfall in Kanchanaburi Thailand

Erawan Waterfall in Kanchanaburi ThailandErawan Waterfalls are the focal point of the Erawan National Park. This is an exquisite park, very pretty, and very popular with locals and foreigners alike. The waterfalls are equally exquisite. There are seven tiers of waterfalls, each feeding lovely, freshwater pools that you can swim in.

A series of tracks lead you to the various falls across wooden footbridges - quite an experience in their own right! The waterfalls can get a bit crowded as they are so popular, so if you are looking for a more solitary experience, you should perhaps look elsewhere. A number of stalls provide staples like grilled chicken and rice along the way, and there is often very much of a carnival atmosphere about the place, especially in April during the Songkran Festival. A visit here will take the day – you should bear this in mind if you have limited time.

How to get there:
Buses leave Kanchanaburi on a regular basis for the waterfalls, but as you will need the whole day there, you will need to catch the early morning bus. (currently 08:00)
