You need to walk in for more than a kilometer to reach the pool, which is nothing but a normal pond which can be found anywhere else too. For the Blue pool, you have to walk even further.

Visited here along with the hot springs and tiger cave temple. Highly advise not going on organised trips but instead taking a taxi which can be pre booked on the streets. We got picked up at 7am and arrived by 8.20 - there were only 2 other people at the pool. When we left around 10.30 there were around 50+... More

It's a must see but prepare to walk there. I would recommend children to swim with an adult supervision. The pool area is very slippery and the pool is deep certain area. I love the long walk & we were soaking before reaching the pool as it was raining.

Wow, this is really a must see in Krabi. The emerald pool is so nice and warm! Although the blue pool is even more beautiful. Nature is beautiful! It's really worth the 200 BATH.

One of the must visit place when you go to Krabi.. no point taking a tour package if you are adventurous... you can rent a car or a bike to go to this place which is about 1hr plus drive from Au Nang.. the pool is amazing and is situated amidst the jungle.. 10 min walk from the entrance at...

It's one hour drive from Krabi town and it's not such a fantastic place. I mean it's nice alright, transparent water in some smaller pond, the emerald pool itself is also nice but if you go, do yourself a favour: go very early to avoid the crowd. If you're there first, you can enjoy the serene environment but if you're... More

The emerald pool is an absolutely charming place. It is a little bit of a drive away from Ao Nang, but totally worth the drive. A beautiful natural pool to swim in (would recommend going early to beat the swarms of day trips) and then an absolutely stunning natural blue pool further up in the jungle, which was spectacular! Definitely... More

The pool is nice but so many people. Don't go there with excursion. Doesn't worth money. They let you stay there only 1hour and you have to go. And of course, all excursions go in the same time
