Reviews of Erawan

Situated to the east of Bangkok, Erawan is a national park that is best known for its turquoise blue waterfalls.

My suggestion:
To make the most of the waterfalls at Erawan, leave early in the morning so you get there before the tourists, or go at the end of the day. Bathe fully dressed. Here, it's not done to walk about bare chested or in a bikini.

The Erawan National Park has seven waterfalls spread through it, which are connected with a path that is several kilometers long. Transparent turquoise water, little fish, the sound of running water - you'll think you are in paradise. You can picnic by the water like the Thais, relax by the side of the pools, or bathe (fully dressed) at the foot of the waterfalls.

I really enjoyed spending a few hours in this magnificent and unusual spot. You can always find a little corner to rest and enjoy nature despite the number of tourists on the site. You feel far away from Bangkok and the chaos of the city.

Unfortunately, like all the natural and tourist sites that you go to during a trip to Thailand, the entrance, with its food stalls and souvenir shops, looks like an amusement park.
