I recommended all my friends visit the Erawan waterfalls. There are seven levels of beautiful, well preserved waterfalls, with crystal clear blue turquoise waters and dark shiny green stones, When the high water flows in, the small fish eat the dead skin of your legs! I don't know, but there were people screaming from the sensation. It's perfect to spend a refreshing day with nature.
Riding up what felt like a vertical road and pulling into the dusty car park, I parked up the bike at the front of the view point and instantly saw the shot. The shadow of the bike adds a great effect to the photo as well as the stunning backdrop.
Along the main road on the right, past the third Seven Eleven, we found a small sign pointing to this lovely tiny paradise in the middle of the tropical Thai jungle. The access road is paved for three or four kilometres, then the next two are a sandy trail that is accessible by car, the last kilometre stretch from the gate has to be done on foot. You can do it in flip flops, but I recommend sneakers. It's short, but full of ups and downs, and in the middle, the jungle closes around you making trekking challenging. However, the beautiful beach is worth it. The stream ends in a small lake from a waterfall, and is a treat for the senses. You can swim, but it's not very deep. Important, don't forget a bottle of water, stay hydrated!
Within the Natural Park of Phang Nga, there's another park called Raman. Close to the Cave Temple, just 5 or 6 kilometres in the forest, this area was declared a park in 1983. At about 100 meters above sea level, it's a rain forest with many ferns, banana trees, bamboo and many local species from this wet area. Monkeys, deer and birds are the main inhabitants, but watch out for insects hanging from the trees, like spiders. Also, be careful of the spiders that live in the holes in the rocks that they cover with webs to catch insects. They come quickly to attack any the vibration in the web, so be aware if you lean on the rocks. Also, the centipedes here have painful bites. After a little scare, we only saw a spider. You shouldn't worry though, and enjoy the environment and the area's other attractions, like its waterfalls that you will see coming up the path a few meters from the entrance. It's not very visited, so it makes the stroll more relaxing. Greetings.
In Koh Kood, the most isolated island in the Trat Province, we went to find one of its best kept secrets, the waterfalls of Khlong Chao. You can access them in 2 ways. The first is by road from any of the places where you stay and the second is by kayak through the channel leading down to Ao Khlong Chao. I'd recommend the second one, it's much more exciting and you will surely enjoy the lush nature of the island. After leaving the kayak on the pier and disembarking, you'll walk through the vegetation along a path that will take you inland to find the riverbed. Be careful in this area because the rocks are very slippery. Along the path you will come to a beautiful lagoon where it descends, with a large waterfall, the main waterfall. The photos aren't the best quality as I only had an underwater camera but don't be deceived, this waterfall will leave you gob-smacked, the lagoon is surrounded by greenery and vegetation.
