Top 6 places & activities you must see & do during the Krabi Emerald Pool Tour – For a memorable visit

The island of Krabi is well-known for several spots where the beauty of nature feels almost unreal! One of the spots that you simply can't miss out on when on the island is the Emerald Pool that is located in the Thung Teao Forest Natural Park. Here's what it has to offer.


Krabi Emerald Pool

The Emerald Pool is indeed emerald in colour as though it came out of the fairytale Wizard of Oz! The pool is also called "Crystal Pool" or "Sra Morakot" in the local language. It is the main attraction in the national park. During the daytime, the water is an almost luminous turquoise blue and is sure to lure you in for a swim. By evening the water turns a light green which is as beautiful as ever. It is an unmissable sight that one definitely has to see when on a visit to Krabi.


Hot Springs

This is yet another must-visit with natural baths that have come to be with the warm water. Take a dip in the warm water and feel all your tiredness melt away. It is one of the most relaxing experiences you will ever have on the island.


Elephant rides

This is one of the most thrilling experiences that Krabi has to offer. There will be a seat all set up for visitors on the elephant's back. The mahout will take charge as your guide and instruct you on how to ride the elephant comfortably. You will then climb aboard the large animal and will be taken on a 60-minute ride across the forest. The views of the forest and the sheer thrill of sitting on the back of an elephant are sure to last in your memory for quite a long time.


Krabi Crystal Stream

It seems that the island of Krabi is well-known for its crystal-clear waters. This one is no different, but what is unique about this little stream is that seawater and freshwater tend to mix together, but yet it manages to stay absolutely as well. The water is so clear that you can actually see the bed of the stream as well. You can enjoy a lovely little swim in the refreshing waters too.


Wat Tham Suea

This is also known as the Tiger Cave Temple and is located amid limestone formations that give it a mysterious look. This temple is right at the top and it takes a good amount of energy to climb those 1237 steps right up to it. However, you will be rewarded with some of the most amazing views on the island as well as the magnificent sight of a stunning Buddha statue to keep you in awe.



When the tides are low, that is your cue to go exploring on a kayaking tour of the limestone caverns and little bays in Krabi's waters. It is nothing short of an amazing experience. If you are staying at Ao Nang beach hotels, the likes of Avani Ao Nang Cliff Krabi Resort, the hotel will be able to organise a tour for you.
