What’s So Awesome About It

In the middle of the jungle, a series of hot waterfalls have smoothed the volcanic rock over time. Now you can bathe in the hot springs like a natural hot tub, in water said to have healing properties. The hottest pool at the top of the formation is 35-40 degrees, but you can cool off in the river below if you get too hot. Great for anyone who wants a natural spa experience.

What’s The Catch

The hot springs are by no means a hidden spot, so expect crowds of tourists all vying for a place in one of the pools.

Things To Keep In Mind

  • Bring a beach towel and wear swimwear to the site as there are no changing facilities or toilets near the hot springs.
  • The pools get particularly hot at midday, so go earlier or later.
  • Bring plenty of snacks and water with you.

How To Reach There

Book a day tour that includes the hot springs from Ao Nang or Railay, or hire a taxi to take you to the site directly. The drive from Krabi Town is around 40 minutes. Take Highway 4 towards the airport, and turn off at KhlongThom onto road 4021 and follow signs to Hot Springs and Emerald Pool.

Pro Tip

This is one of Krabi’s main attractions. So if you want to beat the crowd, arrive first thing in the morning.
