  Jumping into the pool at the bottom of waterfall.

From what I can remember, Ko Chang has a few Nature Reserves and National Park. There are also several waterfalls within these these parks.

Rent a moto and drive yourself to these waterafalls. Usually there is a bit of a trek from the road to the waterfall, so wear proper footwear for walking on rocks and potentially slippery rocks. The waterfalls are best seen right after the rainy season (Oct/Nov) when the water flow is heavier than during the end of the dry season.

That said, I was there at the end of the dry season (April) and it was still worth the trip. Although the water flow was minimal, the swim was worth it! Not only are the waterfalls beautiful to photograph, some of them have a swimming hole that is cool & refreshing when compared to the hot ocean.

Khlong Plu Waterfall (also: Khlong Prao Waterfall) is at the main road between Baan Khlong Prao and the northern end of Khlong Prao Beach. A 2 kilometre concrete road leads to the Marine-Park-Office. There you will find a few small restaurants and here you also have to pay the entrance fee of 200 Baht for foreigners or 20 Baht for locals. After approximately 500 metres walk, you arrive at the foot of the falls which are about 20 metres high. Here you will find a pool suitable to bathe in.
Just before you reach the pool there is a small path on the right which is not very well marked. After 15 minutes walk on this path you reach the top of the main falls where more pools can be found, also suitable for a refreshing dip. A beautiful view down to the sea also awaits the visitor. (Good footwear is an advantage!)
