This was a disappointing excursion off the main road and we only went because we were passing close by. It is very touristy and has an 800 m walk to get to it. There were plenty of people swimming in the warm water. Not sure...More

My wife and I went there last weekend. Lots of travelers. All mixed between Thais and others. Long walk about 800-1400meters from entrance to the pond. The pond itself is fine. Just a bit smaller than I expected. Green trees all green!!! See my pic...More

This was part of a stop of a half day excursion. This was a cool area but it does get pretty busy with tourists especially when other tours stop by. But it's a nice place to cool down and swim around this clear water!

I think this was waste of time and money. Despite pools and jungle are beautiful there are so many people that we couldn't enjoy this trip.

Takes around 10 minutes walking to this Emerald Pool. The water is so clear and you are allowed to swim inside. Very crowded with people!
