My husband and I love going for hikes around the Krabi area and we thought this would be perfect. We hiked to the waterfall which was beautiful then told by a park ranger we couldn’t keep going up the trail to the top of the...More

Went for 40 min elephant trekking with my family and I feel I have wasted money. Riding elephant was good but there is nothing to see when you trek. Simply sitting on elephant for 40 min is no fun. Mahout were not engaging at all...More

Today we went on what was supposed to be an elephant trekking, bathing and feeding trip. We thought we would get to see elephants in a natural habitat. What we got was the biggest disappointment during our trip in Thailad. When we arrived, we couldn't...More

We drove from Krabi town. It is an easy drive on a good road and hard to get lost. The entrance fee (farrang, adult) was a modest 100 Baht. We walked up to Huai To Waterfall. That is a quite easy walk to the base...More

No need for a tour company to see this place. Take a taxi and have them wait.

Absolutely. All a tour can do for you is ruin it. Take a taxi. I think I had an all day taxi for something like 1000 baht, but that was not the price I'd expect to pay if I didn't know some Thai people.
