TakeMeTour's Review

Krasae Cave opens for visitors daily, from 7AM to 5PM, but we suggest you come early to absorb the peaceful morning vibes. And yes, if you visit Thailand on a hot summer day (which is prolly most of the time), don’t skip cooling yourself down at the exquisite 7-tiered Erawan Waterfall. Here, you can enjoy swimming in the emerald green pool and discover endless species of wildlives. Want to sprightly end your night? Take a chill walk at JJ Night Market and try all ranges of street food!
