Things to See and Do in Blue Lagoon
Blue Lagoon is a combination of some small mountain streams. Visitors will step a couple of wooden ladders to entry to the water. This turquoise blue spot is filled with a variety of schools of tiny fish. However, they will not distract you at all.

Another site at the Blue Lagoon travellers should discover is Tham Phu Kham. It is also called Cave of the Golden Crab because many stalactites and stalgmites here look like golden crabs. Through rock stairs at a narrow entrance, you will come into the first chamber and see a bronze reclining Buddha statue which is lit by rays of sunlight through a hole from ceiling. Along the way of the cave, there are handrails which help tourists keep their balance and overcome the steeper points.
