Explore One of the Great Wonders of Koh Chang

If you have ever dreamt of living or walking inside a postcard, like one of those of some of the world's most beautiful places you see, then your dream can be made to come true, by simply visiting the Klong Plu Waterfall, one of the many natural wonders of the island of Koh Chang.


While there are many natural water features and aquatic places to see and enjoy, all around the island of Koh Chang, including the beaches and river beds, the most beautiful one of them all has to be the Klong Plu Waterfall.


The Klong Plu Waterfall is ideal, as an alternative natural water feature place to visit in Koh Chang, because it offers the kind of beauty one usually only sees in dreams, and it can also serve as a reward for having the presence of mind to explore the depths of the island, as opposed to just sticking to the usual places that tourists like to go to and crowd up.


There is a cost involved but this is where you need to be clever about things, planning something like a picnic or rest to go with your visit to the Klong Plu Waterfall and there are also quite a number of activities many tourists like to engage in when they reach Klong Plu, like swimming in the river and getting splashed by the falling water.


Even though there is a cost involved, careful planning is advised since you can actually spend as long as you like there, which is a great reward for the distance you might have to trek from the parking area you will depart from.


Even in the rainy season the Klong Plu Waterfall is still really beautiful to see and some people go as far as claiming that it is even more beautiful during the rainy season than when the sun is out.

A well-sheltered bay with a small and quiet beach. It is a fishing community where residents still live in houses built on stilts and are connected by wooden bridges. There are a growing number of tourist shops, scuba dive outlets and seafood restaurants offering a good selection of seafood.
