This piece of beauty is located in the middle of a natural park/forest and is captivating- IF THERE WEREN'T SO MANY PEOPLE! We went with a tour company (who gave us less than an hour there- it takes about 15/20 mins to walk to the pool via the natural trail- worse in the heat or if you have small children)... More

Absolutely incredible place. It is a fair old walk in the heat but well worth it for the experience. The blue pool takes about another 15 mins to get to and our group did not have time for both so we chose to take a quick dip instead. The rocks are very slippery so negotiating getting in and out takes... More

it is a wonder of nature here, but ! you must come early mornings, before the masses arrive. Then you will agree it is a wonder. Once the groups from Ao Nang and Krabi town arrive, it is more like a circus attraction.

The pool is nice but it is foaming with hundreds of visitors. I asked and there is no one day better than another to visit.

The pool is attractive, but it was so crowded that you couldn't appreciate it at all. In fact it was just awful, people sitting and swimming in any and every space available and it was really noisy. It took us well over an hour to drive there from Ao Nang, and then we were charged for parking (why exactly??), the... More

The first thing i would have to say is BE CAREFUL WHEN APPROACHING THE POOL the ground surrounding the pool is slippery and you could easily slip and hurt yourself. The best approach is to sit on your bum and slide towards the pool. The pool bed is nice and clean , although the pool isnt that big it is... More

Traveled from Railay, long way to go to look at an overcrowded puddle of clear water. Overall not worth the visit.
