“Very beautiful place”
Reviewed January 12, 2014

This place has to be visited early as if you are late,you wouldn't have too much time for the falls,The place is too natural and the water is clean with too many fishes.

“Beautiful but don't go too late in the day.”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

A lovely series of 9 waterfalls, with pools for swimming. We hired a minibus and driver for a day trip to Kanchanaburi and Erawan Falls from Bangkok. It was perfectly doable; leaving Bangkok at 7am and returning by 8.30pm. We visited the War Cemetery, Thailand-Burma Railway Museum and the Bridge over the River Kwai in the morning, before travelling on to Erawan. We had hoped to fit in Hellfire Pass on the same day but it was shut over the Christmas period. That was lucky for us as we found that the waterfalls site closes at 4pm. Since we had young children with us, Erawan was a great destination for lightening the mood after the visit to Kanchanaburi. We still only managed to see the first 2 levels of the falls though, so we will definitely return, taking in Hellfire Pass on the way next time. There was a small fee for parking and entering the National Park.

“Great day trip”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

We took a great day trip to the water falls. They were lovely. You can swim in the pools of each one. We also had a nice lunch at the entrance to the park. We found out from some fellow travelers that the hotel would arrange the trip per car load not per person, so if you can hitch your wagon to some one else's trip you can save considerable money.

“Wonderful if you can avoid the crowds”
Reviewed January 3, 2014

Erawan Falls are really a series of falls (described as 7 levels). All beautiful all year round. There is more water coming over the falls in rainy season (May-November) of course, but usually more enjoyable to visit in December or January, when there is still good water flow, the trails are drier, and it is cooler. Best to visit early and on weekdays and non-holiday periods to avoid the crowds. You will need more time than you might think to visit as the hike up to the last level takes a good couple of hours -- longer if you want to take a leisurely pace and enjoy the nature.

“Must see!”
Reviewed January 3, 2014

This was a beautiful trip to hike up gentle trails to see beautiful blue waterfalls you can swim in. I had no trouble climbing up the first six, I am not in the greatest shape, and passed on the 7th as it got steep. It was beautiful shaded trails well worth the visit.
