Nam Roo

A green getaway

What we say: 4 stars

Nam Roo is a naturally occurring mountain spring that has been turned into a very pleasant park and campground, with several small pools and streams, and a visitors centre with interesting information on the surrounding area.

Located about 10 kilometres out of town off route 107 bypass, Nam Roo is well signposted and the drive out is quite beautiful. The park itself was set up to help inform the public about the abundant natural resources present in Fang, and info in the visitors centre is translated into English.

The pools, fed by the adjacent Nam Roo spring, are quite cool even in the summer heat, and you will likely encounter Thai children splashing and playing in the water. There is room to camp, and even a couple of small bungalows on the premises, and a few shops serving grilled chicken and papaya salad during lunch hours.

All in all, Nam Roo makes for an excellent spot for a picnic or overnight stay, and should not be missed, even if you only stop by for a quick dip to beat the heat.
