Plunge into the warm, clear waters at Emerald Pool (Sa Morakot), a hot spring tucked away in a thick forest. The main spring has become famous for its turquoise color, and is as good for a relaxing swim as it is photogenic. Take a hike through the area to enjoy the lush woods, and consider arranging for a guide to show you around and point out all the animals that call this edenic landscape home. Make sure to explore as much of the area as possible: plenty of more secluded pools are hiding off the beaten track.

  • Context - stayed in ao nang for one night to go and see this and has to travel a bit over an hour. It’s nice, don’t get me wrong, yet only if you’re passing by.

  • Horrible experience visting this a foreigner. It is a small pond for swimming in a jungle, no reason it should cost 200 baht to enter, which is ten times the price for Thai locals. Ten minutes here.....  more

  • A beautiful, serene place worth a visit. We enjoyed a 800m - 1400m walk into the forest to witness the emerald pool. The walk itself was scenic and therapeutic; we witnessed calming waterfalls, sounds of birds and insects and nature. The emerald pool is all natural with beautiful dark cyan coloured water that comes from trapped rocks underneath the surface. You’re free to dip in the pool as long as you have a swimsuit. It’s recommended to visit earlier in the morning rather than later in the afternoon as it closes at 16:30 pm. Do note that there is a 20 baht entry fee for Thai adults, while foreigners will be charged more. Other than that the public sanctuary also has a bird observing attraction worth a visit.
  • If you are looking for an adventurous trip, then it's the wrong place for you. This place is basically a shallow swiming pool. Plenty of people inside the pool just chilling and relaxing. Very easy to walk. Of course not much view to expect as well. But if you are looking for a relaxing pool, probably it is good for you. Since 200B per entry if you are foreigner, while Thai only need 20B, not recommended if you are foreigner just wanna swim there. You can probably swim with less crowd at your resort/hotel.
