Ko Lanta: Emerald Pool and Hot Springs Day Trip

1. Ko Lanta: Emerald Pool and Hot Springs Day Trip

Begin your day with pickup at around 8 AM from your resort, then head first to the Emerald Pool, a unique attraction on the main island of Krabi situated in the middle of a lush lowland forest rich in bio-diversity. The source of the groundwater flows through the limestone layer and settles, therefore making it look emerald green. Upon arrival, walk along the natural jungle path and admire the peaceful environment before jumping into the Emerald Pool. Have fun playing in the water, then replenish your energy with a set lunch featuring a range of Thai dishes at a local restaurant at midday. After lunch, visit the Hot Spring waterfall and spend time relaxing in the mineral-rich water. Therapeutic and soothing, the hot springs are natural ‘hot tubs’ crafted into smooth rock channeling water from deep-rooted thermal springs located in volcanic chambers. Enjoy the comfortably warm water temperature, which ranges from 40-50 degrees Celsius (104-122 degrees Fahrenheit). The mineral salts in the water are claimed to cure a range of illnesses such as rheumatism and sciatica. These jungle baths also feed into a cool stream which is perfect to cool off in after. At 3 PM, transfer back to your hotel on Ko Lanta Yai.
