We went to Krabi for a couple of days. Along with beautiful beaches and small islands we visited the Emerald Pool. It’s a wonderful place worth a visit! The entrance fee is 20 baht for locals and 200 baht ($6) for foreigners… a rather big difference I’d say! Anyway it didn’t stop us and we didn’t regret it.
The Emerald Pool is located in fertile rainforest jungle with high trees. The water in the pool changes its colour during the day according to the light and time. If you’d like to see the real emerald colour, you should come very early in the morning.
We loved this place! Apart from bathing in the pool you can enjoy walking along well kept paths, where you will find shelter from the hot sun in the shade of the trees. Just stroll following the signs, breathe the humid, cool, fresh air. Listen to the constant chirring of crickets and frogs croaking, pamper your eyes with the beauty of exotic flowers and thousand shades of green. Feel the jungle the way it is!
Don’t overlook the Blue Pool. You can’t swim in it though. But it’s still worth seeing.
