Paradise Falls on Phangan - the most easily accessible on the island

Not as big as Wang Saibut widely known even among beginners, and oneof the most visited waterfalls in Phangan. On the island, in principle, not so much to sort out between large and small waterfalls, so if you are a fan of such sights - make sure to plan a visit. Paradise on Phangan, in fact - a stream flowing down from the top of the mountain. In places of strong soil erosion, rocks were exposed, and in the lowest part, an artificial dam was created in which to swim. And in a minute walk from the font there are several bungalows for living for ridiculous money in Spartan conditions.

Paradise Falls in Phangan

I do not know who called it a paradise waterfall, butI completely agree with the author of the toponym - the place is cozy and inexplicably sinks instantly into the soul. It is worth to go here, first of all, in order to swim in fresh water. Water falling from a great height, you will not see here.

When searching for Paradise, keep in mind - on the trackthere is no pointer that by the handle will lead you to parking at the end point. To find Paradise Falls on Phangan, you will have to use the navigator map on your smartphone. The most important thing is to find the exit point from the main road, then drive 5 minutes uphill along a rather uneven dirt road, which in some places was even reinforced with concrete.

The path frightens many by its untidyness, andpeople throw equipment on the sidelines, preferring to climb on foot, but I'm not out of fearful ones. The path ends with parking and a resort of ugly bungalows that run a cafe with Thai food (aka office and reception). Parking, it should be noted, is not the biggest, with a pile of garbage and an uneven surface. Motobike should be put carefully, so as not to fall on the slope and soft branches. By car, I would not risk putting myself in here either, too narrowly.

The pointer does not hang on the main road, but already on the way

To the left of the stream and up the stairs go,which you will get another pair of rapids with small fonts. But you should not go far, I walked along this path up the stream for 10-15 minutes and found nothing interesting. The path quietly became poorly distinguishable, tried to go along the channel, but this, to put it mildly, was not comfortable. If suddenly you went to the very top, then tell us in the comments what is there.

Information to visit

From the parking lot you have to go 2 minutes to the font with the main waterfall. And if you go from the road, throwing a bike on the pavement, then 10 minutes.

Entrance to the territory is free and free. Parking is also at no extra charge, at least for 2017 it was just that. The prices in the cafe are average in the hospital, the quality of the food did not have time to check out, a lot of business was planned for the day, and Paradise the place is relaxing and cool - “the most it is” in the midst of the heat of the day.

Bungalows, in spite of external clumsiness, havemore than sane price tag and are in active demand among supporters of this type of holiday. Paradise Falls is thoroughly dependent on seasonal precipitation, so that in March-April, the hottest and driest months in Surat Thani, you are unlikely to jump from the bungee into the water.

Life hacking 2 - how to find a hotel 20% cheaper

First, choose a hotel on Booking. They have a good offer base, but the prices are NOT the best! The same hotel can often be found 20% cheaper in other systems through the RoomGuru service.
