Tong Sai waterfall is different from other waterfalls on Phuket. It is 2km long that make it the longest and the second highest on the island. It is not a waterfall where a high volume of water plunging down from a high cliff. It rather just flows over rock steps and a few small ledges where you can get under the stream for a natural massage.
If you decide to take a trek around the falls, wear comfortable shoes and be prepared that the trail might disappear under fallen trees, and you will need to find a detour.

This is the biggest of the 3 best-known waterfalls on Phuket. At the base, there is one pool for swimming. The trail leading to the fall is picturesque and not overly taxing and long.
This place is also a home to the Gibbons Rehabilitation Center established in 1992. The center takes care and rehabilitates rescued, wounded and left without parents monkeys.
Volunteers working at the center deserve great respect. They are always happy to talk about the project and answer questions about gibbons.
You won’t be able to touch or even get close to the monkeys at the center but there is plenty of interesting information posted around. One of the center’s goals is to educate visitors. Next time you are offered to get your picture taken with a baby gibbon on the streets say NO. Most tourists don’t suspect that a gibbon mother is usually gets killed when poachers take a baby gibbon from her.
