Attractions near Emerald Pool & Blue Pool

Ko Mai Phai37.83km from Emerald Pool & Blue Pool

Bamboo Island is a true tropical paradise. Known by locals as Koh Mai Phai, the stunning tiny island is just a short strip of white sand beach which rises from the sea, about 600 meters wide and 700 m long, with a shape like a heart. Its central part is covered with lush vegetation, mostly Casuarinas trees and the Bamboo trees, hence its name. On the north-eastern side of the island, under the shade of trees, there is a small bar for visitors, which serves drinks and snacks.

Wat Kaew Korawararam41.88km from Emerald Pool & Blue Pool

Wat Kaew Korawaram, also known simply as Wat Kaew, is the largest Buddhist temple within Krabi Town and one of most prestigious in the entire region, though not as famous as the Tiger Cave Temple located outside the city. Perched on a hill overlooking Krabi downtown, the temple dates back to 1887, when 200 families settled at Baan Pak Nam, which was the name of city at that time, and a community of monks sprang up and prospered.

A sacred site, known for tinger paw prints, tall Budha statues, and flight of stairs to reach the summit.

Pak Meng Beach48.27km from Emerald Pool & Blue Pool

It is Trang's most popular beach renowned for its scenery of sunset.

Railay Beach48.36km from Emerald Pool & Blue Pool

Railay Beach is, in fact, a small peninsula that counts four beaches. Now on every savvy traveler's list, Railay is nevertheless one of Thailand's most sought-after beach areas. Just south of Ao Nang Beach, around a rocky headland and accessible only by boat, Railay presents a tranquil and extraordinary world.

Ao Nang Beach50.26km from Emerald Pool & Blue Pool

Ao Nang is a central point of the coastal province of Krabi, Thailand. The town consists chiefly of a main street, which is dominated by restaurants, pubs, shops, and other commerce aimed at tourists. The main beach is used by sunbathers to a certain extent, but there are a large number of long-tail boats that offer access to other beaches on the mainland and on nearby islands.

A “must-see” site in the Khao Phra Bang Kharam Nature Reserve is the brightly coloured ‘Blue Pool’, located some 600m further upstream from the Emerald Pool. If time permits, the additional distance is worth it – but beware, though the water looks magical and inviting, it is hot and surrounded by quicksand, so no bathing is allowed.

This is an astonishly-hued and large natural crystel pool also known as emerald pool that is filled with pure spring water – although at ambient temperature. Swimming is possible here.

The pool is reached via a network of trails through the Khao Nor Chu Chi forest (the longest of which is 1.2km – no climbing required), which offer a glimpse into a unique aquatic ecosystem, fed by the area’s abundant spring water. You’ll pass by a series of clear mini-pools, waterfalls and streams, plus hundreds of species of tropical trees and plants.
