This is a surprisingly untouched and under-touristed waterfall in the Kaeng Krachan national park forest about 30 - 40 minutes pleasant drive east of Hua Hin's construction sites on route 3218. The easiest way to go is by car or motorbike, but you can get small day trips from Hua Hin too. 5 of the waterfall's many levels are accessible... More

Takes about an hour to get to the starting point of this walk / climb in the rainforest. you might just be lucky to see some elephants roaming as you drive through the park towards the fall. Buy some fishfood at the entrance (20 THB a pack) and wander gently up the route. Its not the easiest of treks, but... More

Swim (soak) with the fishes. A must visit for anyone who enjoys a hike. It is a little way outside the city (can stop at the vineyard on the way out or back). You will need a car (motorbike not advised) and you might considering just hiring a local driver for the day who will walk with you up the... More

The waterfall are stunning and well worth the climb. The walk up to the various waterfalls is quite tricky if you are not fit. Not for little children but my group had an eight year old who found it easy. The pools are very clear and teaming with fish. Take your camera!

I just love the rainforests of Thailand. Hired a driver who drove us to the falls, which is in the southern end of Kaeng Krachan National Park. On the way there was evidence of wild elephant droppings on the road. From the carpark we began walking along the rapids to the waterfall. In many of the pools there were HUNDREDS... More

This is a great attraction on many levels, and there are about 20 of them. Firstly , it is beautiful, starting with the very scenic drive up to it, and then the series of waterfalls them selves. Next , it is clean and unspoilt. No rubbish... No neon signs... No fast food restaurants, just a couple of food places at... More

If you want to get out of town and see real Thailand you should visit Pala-U waterfall situated in Kaeng Krachan National Park. It was a 1.5hr ride outside Hua Hin into the mountainous area, beautiful scenery on the way. Once at the waterfall you will see clouds of amazingly coloured butterflies and all sorts of other wildlife, you can... More

If you're looking for a bit of an adventurous day then definitely visit the waterfall but be sure to wear appropriate footwear. There are no nicely carved out steps (or very few) or safety railings here. We only managed to get the 2nd (and a half!) level in the end because I slipped whilst climbing along the rocks. We wore...
