🌊🍃 Kaeng Krachan 🍃🌊
Sep 2020 • Friends
Kaeng Krachan is my favorite place. Because it is a very good water play place, cold water, there are a lot of accommodation. whether overnight or temporarily It is recommended to choose accommodation that is not too upstream or downstream, such as Ban Ob Fah Resort, Chaem Chan Resort, delicious food, affordable prices, clean bathrooms, very well managed. And during Saturdays, Sundays or during the festival, there will be a lot of people. I will definitely go there again when I have the opportunity.

Kaeng Krachan Dam has the nice landscape.It has large area that you can see whole Phetchaburi river. You can take a picture with the view of mountains and Phetchaburi river.There is a long street so you can skate through the view. If you like nature and want to relax, I recommend this place.

Fresh Air🌱
Jun 2021
I'm would like to review this place is a reservoir of Phetchaburi province. Because I have been there and would like to invite everyone who is interested if there is a chance to go. Here everyone can go and take pictures. and soak up the natural atmosphere and the wind blows This makes it a suitable place for people who want fresh air.

Nice Scenery
Mar 2020
The dam is a nice stop if you are in the area to see other things. You can drive across the top, stop and look at the reservoir, then down below at the Petchaburi River. It's pretty and well worth the stop if in the area. I wouldn't go just to look at the dam, though, but that's me. We did venture onward and found a place not far away to hire a boat ride on the reservoir, and that was fun. There are restaurants in the area, just none right at the dam, and that's probably a good thing.

Lovely place to visit..!

There are plenty of restaurants in the area and a 'swim' down the river is always a winner. Take a scenic boat tour over the lake... you will not regret it as it is a nice outing.

Worth a boat ride
Jan 2020 • Couples
We went to see the actual dam and ended up going on a 45 minute boat ride during which we fed the over zealous macaques. Boat ride was 700B for three of us and the two bags of monkey treats was 100B. The dam is a dam. Definitely not the Hoover dam but interesting to see.

Temple in the Dam
Aug 2019 • Family
I went to this temple many times in the past year, this year the boat ride costed THB 1,200. Snack for monkey is THB50 per bag . You get to see monkeys swimming in the morning at 9:00 , they can be aggressive. There are cows swimming from one Island to the other, too.

Please bring the necessities to this temple (drinking water, mosquitoes repellent, first aid kit, dried food, umbrella, slippers, some cash - (sometimes the monk need to fix the temple ).

There are dogs and cats living there, too.

Kaeng Krachan
Apr 2019 • Couples
Not a planned visit but what an amazing detour for an afternoon. Spectacular views of endless mountain ranges and a dam the size of a small sea, dotted with islands and boat tours by local guides, with stops along the way to see crab-eating macaque monkeys which happily board boats in search of food. Just don't try to get too close.

The Kaeng Krachan dam is part of Thailand's largest national park. There is a quaint bridge over to one of the islands but access blocked half way across, unfortunately. Also not for the faint hearted or very young children given the movement of the bridge and the minimalistic wire side barrier. Worth seeing (sadly) is the most enormous section of tree trunk which I'm sure has a story to it. Around two metres in diameter and four or five metres in length. The living tree must have been awe-inspiring.

In short, if you have your own car and are heading towards Hua Hin from Bangkok as I was, I would highly recommend a detour.

Peace and quiet
Dec 2018
What a beautiful, peaceful area. It is off the beaten track so to get there is a bit tricky. People are environment conscious and food is cheap and authentic Thai but you can opt for Western food with a Thai twist. Sunsets is beautiful and the nature reserve is about an hours drive away, very scenic with the dam wall and dam stretching for kilometers. If you are a bird watcher this is the place and if you love butterflies go there in December.

Beautiful spot, tranquil
Aug 2018 • Couples
We visited twice. Once in the evening for a meal overlooking the dam at sunset. Beautiful and tranquil. The meal was nice. We then visited during the day and did a 45 minute boat ride around the reservoir with a local guide. Cost 300 Baht plus 40 extra as they go past an island with resident monkeys which they feed so be aware that the monkeys are very familiar with this and we had a few jump in the boat to get the food. Small info centre and a nice little coffee shop/restaurant. We did visit in the monsoon season so trails mostly shut. It is lovely spot and shows the ruggedness of the area. Nice way to spend a few hours. We were driven there but tours do run from Hua Hin.
