The most popular and largest island in Thailand, Phuket is as cosmopolitan as it is colourful and is among the most famous dream destinations in the world. You can explore verdant inland vistas in secluded swathes of rainforest and along the western shoreline where the Andaman Sea's turquoise waters meets hunter-green foliage, there are stunning waterfalls in Phuket. 

Spectacular Phuket waterfall

The largest waterfall in Phuket, Bang Pae Waterfall is located in the Khao Phra Thaew National Park close to the northern side of Phuket, near the Two Heroines Monument. You can reach the falls by hiking up the forest trail to a pool at the falls' base. On a hot day, you may want to take a cooling dip in the pool. 

The waterfalls in the region are at their best during the period from June to November whilst September and October present the ideal time for visiting. Besides the alluring Bang Pae Waterfall, several other waterfalls are located in Phuket such as TonSai Waterfall and Kathu Waterfalls. 

Centre for gibbons

The Gibbon Rehabilitation Centre founded in 1992 by an American Zoologist is near the Bang Pae Waterfall. The centre houses a souvenir stall from which you can purchase various items. Donations are gratefully accepted for the benefit of the gibbons.  

The visitor to the Bang Pae Waterfall can also gain a delightful experience roaming along the sandy coastline of Phuket where many water sports and chic restaurants are available. Although highly developed, the region retains its share of Thai appeal.  From night markets of old Phuket Town to the pristine beaches in Nai Han, Phuket possesses something to please every visitor.
