  • Erawan National Park Is much more than Erawan Falls. get out and explore we found a few wonderful places. not at all remote but with very few people around and had a grin inducing experience.. plannin...  more »
  • In addition to the Erawan falls, pleasant, sports and where you won't be alone, there is this cave, which is accessible after a climb by a steep trail, located at Erawan Falls by taxi about 15 min. Really nice to see cave. A crazy and wet heat inside, visit to the oil lamp. The adventure!

  • I'll try to order ... Seven levels of waterfalls! It is worth to be seen at least once))) the first two levels: favoured by paths lined with plates, there are dedicated areas for smoking, lounge chairs made of bamboo, shower, toilets, etc. two years ago were monkeys, but apparently, the staff at the park they finally raspugali (previously scared off shooting slingshots) (((((so no on one level not met. Starting with the third reserved zone begins. All it banned all tourists are asked to pay a deposit before entering for pronosimye water bottles we had one. but, as I understand, the pledge of 20 baht for each. On the way back when you show the bottle-money returns. Food and water can be left in the luggage room free of charge. Further State trails significantly deteriorates with each level)) Starting with sickly bridges and the beaten paths, until the roads and crossings in shallow water. Finally, on the last level of zalezaesh' (I can even say voshodish') with "language on the shoulder, but it's worth it. Types of almost untouched nature, swimming among the fish, water slides from stones, etc. leave a great impression and will be remembered for a long time. If you prefer to quietly reach last level and just quietly go back-it is better to go on their own, and not as part of tours on the Quay. Usually give very little leisure time. We at a calm pace on the ascent and descent took 4:00. You can run and for 2, but it does not take great pleasure in my opinion. You can get there by public transport (the route is described in detail in the global Web) We ordered the transfer. From Pattaya and back agreed for 5000 baht, journey time approximately 4:00.

  • ohhh!!! This waterfalls is beautiful. It's not huge. but it has 7 levels and each level has their own charm. It's a good work our walking up to the top level too. Not too bad but take your time. don't be rush. The path is not easy to walk. The water is clear and cool. Lots of fishes. But no fishing allow guys. sorry.
  • Really its wonderful place.. I love it..... You can swimming and go up..... Its 1500m up. Don't forget to bring water or buy water cause when you go up you will not found any shop sell water.... So be ready for it... If you go up also its hard.... So be ready and i hope you enjoy your time there.... Dont throw any rubbish. (be careful for animals)
  • Beautiful waterfalls to swim in, full of fish that nibble at your feet. 7 layers of waterfalls that run down the mountain. Asked to leave at 5:30pm. Carts offer to drive you up to the waterfall steps or you can walk through the lovely forestry and see some plant and wildlife.
  • Stunning place, fairly challenging trek to the last couple of tiers but I'd advise flip flops or sandles as you end up walking through pools of water near the end and taking sturdy boots on and off several times would be a pain. Might be different in the dry season when the water is lower or more difficult in the rainy season - we went in November You won't be allowed past level 4 after 15:30 to ensure everyone is out before the park closes, and you have to pay a refundable 20 baht deposit for each plastic bottle you take in past level 3 to discourage littering - great idea we thought. Some have complained here about the higher price for foreigners - that's normal for Thailand, get used to it. And come on - 300 baht (plus 30 for the car) is about £6.50. We spent 5 hours in the park it's an absolute bargain! And some have complained about rude staff - I was with my Thai partner and we both found everyone unfailingly polite. Maybe we were lucky and went on a day when everyone was in a good mood, but if you treat people here with respect they will reciprocate. In summary, I can't recommend a visit here highly enough. It's a MUST do if you are visiting Thailand for more than just bumming on the beach and riding the occasional elephant!
  • Try to go during off-peak seasons to avoid the huge crowd. Waterfall water is very cool and relaxing, take the opportunity to soak in the water and let the fishes suck on your legs; it is totally harmless. Food in the waterfall area is not good, so be prepared if you have an empty stomach. Instead, go for the shops at the car park area. Trekking shoes are not necessary as many Thais just wear thongs and slippers up.
