Waterfalls in Thailand
It’s kind of amazing just how many waterfalls there are in Thailand. They come in all shapes and sizes, including stand-alone waterfalls, ones that pool into large basins and some that cascade down rocks. Most are tucked amid dense foliage – much of which in designated national parks – but some are easily accessible right from a nearby car park, and even have shops and restaurants at their feet.
Waterfalls in Thailand are at their best just after rain, although fresh rain can make hiking out here a little more risky. Some waterfalls will disappear completely during the dry season, but others will simply flow more gently and make the pools below just right for a swim. If you’re on the hunt for waterfalls in Thailand’s southern region, here are a few to check out – just make sure to bring a swimsuit.
