So first off, I'm from a small town full of lakes and glacier fed swimming holes. So, if you're from a city or area without cool water holes, this will probably a lot cooler for you. We visited here as part of a multi activity tour. The Emerald pool was smoking busy, but very pretty and nice to cool down... More

My husband and I went to the Emerald pool during our holiday in Krabi in April 2017. It was nice to see how it looks and the blue pool further into the forest (which you cannot swim in), however the emerald pool itself was very overcrowded...its nice to go see at least

So many people you will be upset. Go on weekdays instead. Then only your cameras will capture the pool and its colour rather than pool with full of people.

Horrible experience, time and money wasted. Too crowded, dirty, and doesn't look alike the pictures you see in the brochures. Blue lagoon, nice, you are not allow to swim there. Save two km walk just to see a pond.

This pool is located inside jungle & requires to walk for more than 20 min inside jungle but through good man cum natural route..the pool has amazing view. This has absolutely clear water &u cn swim through it.not very risky but definitely deep at many places so get inside water only if you know to swim

I found this place totally overrated and dirty apart from being crowded. It's a 200 baht fee for foreigners & conversely a 20 baht fee for locals. So it was packed with locals, big crowds and picnickers. The walk through the rainforest was ok and bearable as it began raining else it's a 1km walk to the overcrowded and dirty... More

Whilst in Krabi for 2 days we visited here. Our plan was to visit some land based places rather than more island hopping which we had planned for the next week. We teamed it up with elephants and hot springs. We were a party of 6 (adults and teens)and booked a private taxi. 800m walk to the pool, when u... More
