Waterfalls in Thailand

Given the abundance of water during Thailandís rainy season, the kingdom boasts several excellent waterfalls.
 

Must see

From almost any part of the country you are within an hourís drive (or less) of what is often a multi-tiered water fall. Many of Thailandís national parks house some genuinely spectacular waterfalls. Pa La-U, Erawan, Namnuang, Sai Yok, Mae Surin and Mae Sa are all noted for particular interest to visitors. Although they are sometimes a bit tricky to get to, a visit to a waterfall is well worthwhile. The areas around the falls are ideal for hikes and picnics, and sometimes even mountain climbing. Of course, swimming is permitted in the waterfall pools, and often or not they are packed with locals giving them a genuine Ďcommunityí feel. Visit some of Thailandís key waterfalls.
