Tha Pom Khlong Song Nam




We were staying in a hotel at Nong Thale in Krabi for a week and were looking for a nearby place to visit. One of the hotel restaurant staff mentioned Tha Pom Khlong Song Nam. She told this would be a beautiful green and quiet place. She was so right. It was only a short drive and really worth it. Tha Pom Khlong Song Nam is a small area with a beautiful clean clear little river tucked away in thick forest. I have never something like this in Thailand yet it seems very much hidden from the big tourist groups. We saw some other people but it was remarkably quiet.

The water is incredibly clean and with the light colored sand on the bottom it turns beautiful bleu/green in the sunlight. Throughout the forest a wooden pathway is constructed. Every now and then you find some seats to rest or to simply enjoy the view.

There is a small entrance fee but that is worth it. I hope the money is well spend on keeping this place clean and maintained. When we visited the place it was really clean, there was no plastic lying around. Just what you would hope to see here.

We came here and went straight into the park. Humidity and heat can get to you in this place so carry some water with you. Once you get out there are plenty of opportunities to buy some souvenirs, drinks or something to eat. You can sit down at some of the eating places as well and they will cook you some nice Thai dishes.

The photos in the gallery below will give a much better impression that what I can describe here. If you are in Krabi and have a half day of free time go and visit Tha Pom Khlong Song Nam.

 

Location

I strongly recommend to use a navigation app on your phone or a dedicated. The roads to this beautiful location is perfectly fine but signage is missing. Parking at the entrance is easy. There is plenty of parking space under trees. Right at the entrance you find a number of shops and places to eat. You will need to have your own transportation or get a taxi. There is no public transport nearby Tha Pom Khlong Song Nam.
