My husband and I are staying in Hua Hin all week. We decided to journey the hour and a half to the Pala-U Waterfall, and it was absolutely worth the trip. This waterfall is something beautiful. There are "swarms" of gorgeous butterflies flying everywhere. There are 11 levels of the waterfall. Most people go to level 5 to swim before... More

Travelled in by motorbike on excellent road! Pricey entrance fee at 300 bart! Trail up to level 4 of waterfall excellent - we went to level 5. Fed the fish - and sat with my feet in the water while they nuzzled at toes and feet. Fun. Didn't see any elephants on way in or out of park, but apparently... More

The falls are about an hours drive from Hua Hin and we chose to go on a private tour. We were driven to the falls and asked what level we'd like to go upto. It can take 8hours one way all the way to the top. We chose to go to level 5 as the waterfall was great here and... More

Well worth the trip from Hua hin approx about 1 hr drive . The trek up through the rainforest was awesome as was the waterfalls in the way we only got to level 5 but if you have time keep going. You will need mosquito repellent

Great tour of the mountain river through the jungle forest. We really had a good rest at the end of lunch at a Thai cafe.

The lower areas are somewhat family friendly, but even then, perhaps a bit too tricky or dangerous for little ones. If you're feeling adventurous, you can keep making your way higher and higher up, toward Burma, and it is absolutely stunning what you'll find.

I only managed to get to level 2 as my girlfriend was afraid of heights. with that little amount of trek we did, all I can say... More

75km drive (but the road is probably the best part of the excursion!) to see a dirty rivulet for 12€ (probably much more if your kids are not Thai coz 'Farangs' pay 3 time more!) like you can see a million for free in every part of Europe! I read a few recession and I truly wonder if have been... More

Interesting place to see and to hear many jungle voices. We climbed to 5th level and after that there was a sign not to enter forward. When we came back, we saw a big green snake near the path. Had no idea was it poisonous, just run to past it. After the first level not suitable for small children or... More
