The Emerald Pools in Krabi, is a location definitely not to be missed on the tourist trail, as you travel through Thailand.
There is a small entrance fee to be paid and if you arrive later in the afternoon you will miss the mass of coached-in groups and be able to experience a more private time with the locals.
If you don’t want to walk to the pools you can hop on a motor bike taxi. I would suggest walking back on the board walk.
If you leave it until dusk is nearly upon you, then the sounds of the jungle start to change as the darkness begins to roll in and your surroundings provide an ethereal feel, as silence purveys, before the chatter of the night creatures takes over.
