Nice waterfall park

We had a nice day trip here and a little adventurous hike around the waterfall. The path s at on point vanishes and you have to straight kross the river to continue.

The waterfall is around 500 metres walk along the bush track. The track is not very steep and is an easy walk. It is in a beautiful and serene setting with a small lake in front. You can swim there and/or feed the fish with snake beans. The fish don't bite (no teeth). You can buy the king beans there.... More

I usually stay in Laemsing and hire a scooter to ride up to this lovely National Park..The scenery is beautiful and the fish are incredible.. You can buy green beans that the fish love to eat..It is also enjoyable swimming in the pools and by the waterfall. Mostly I have found those at the park are people from Thailand who... More

Namtok Phlio National Park is 135 sq. km. of mountain terrain, covered with tropical rainforest. It was declared a reserve in 1959 and was upgraded to a Forest Park in 1972. It is a "must see" if you are in Chantanaburi Province, about 240 km south east of Bangkok, particularly Phlio Waterfall, which the tourist brochures describe as "the super... More

Great mini "jungle" experience with two small children. Nice and cool, shady, and deserted. Lots of opportunities for dips in the water, although some of the fish are pretty huge and are a bit intimidating!! The little ones give you a little nibble but the big ones may be quite a shock! Lots of wildlife to see, lizards, beautiful butterflies,... More

This was a great place. Jungle, fish in the river, waterfall. We stopped to eat and walked to the waterfall and swam with the fish. They nibble at your feet and it is not painful, but at the same time hard to ignore..... Peaceful place for a picnic

This is well worth a visit but the fact I was charged tourist prices (200 baht instead of 40 baht) really grated me as I have a work permit and pay taxes here. Try and avoid on weekends as very very busy which takes away the ambience.

What a delight! Most of Thailand’s national parts are usually well kept but this one is streets ahead. If you are looking you will see staff located around the park to make sure all is in order and offer information or help. Help is certainly needed when you are reading the information posts as the translation into English is the... More

Phlio waterfall is not an attraction to fill a day. But if you are around Chantaburi or on the way to Trat and Kho Chang it is definitely a great stop. The natural park is very well maintained and has a nice scenary. Don't forget to buy beans on your way from parking to entrance to feed the fish. And... More

Beautiful waterfall where you take dip in the water and swim with the fish. Visited the waterfall with a group of thai friends. Should be easy enough to find for farangs traveling without local guides.
