Baan Nam Rad Pool

Surat Thani-Thailand

During my road trip onto the Thai Mainland in December 2022- January 2023 I visited this lovely cool pool in Surat Thani province.
I remember the water being utterly clean and clear, we had a wonderful time there, as did many others.

The Surat Thani Emerald Pool, also known as Ban Nam Rad, is a popular tourist attraction located in the province of Surat Thani in southern Thailand. It is known for its stunning natural beauty and crystal-clear emerald-colored water.

The Emerald Pool is a natural hot spring located within the Khao Phra Bang Khram Nature Reserve, which is part of the Khao Luang National Park. The water in the pool is heated by geothermal activity, resulting in a pleasant temperature for swimming and relaxing.

The pool gets its name from the unique color of the water, which appears emerald, green due to the high mineral content in the surrounding rocks and vegetation. The mineral-rich water is believed to have therapeutic properties and is said to be beneficial for skin conditions and muscle relaxation.

Apart from the Emerald Pool, the surrounding area is also home to several other natural attractions, including hot springs, waterfalls, and jungle trails. Visitors can explore the lush rainforest, take a dip in the hot springs, or enjoy a picnic by the poolside.

It's important to note that due to the popularity of the Emerald Pool, it can get crowded, especially during peak tourist seasons. To fully enjoy the experience and avoid the crowds, it's recommended to visit early in the morning or on weekdays.

Overall, the Surat Thani Emerald Pool is a beautiful natural wonder that offers a unique and refreshing experience for visitors looking to relax and immerse themselves in Thailand's natural beauty.
