The most famous tourist spot cannot be anything but Long Roo or Saeng Chan waterfall. It is a magical place famous for its shape and how water runs through a natural stone hole, creating an image similar to a giant ceiling shower. Tourists can also climb up the fall for an extra special view.The best time to visit this waterfall is a little before noon as the sun shines through the hole and a gorgeous sight is created. It is said that on a full moon night, the water is reflected by the moonlight and glows in celestial beauty, and therefore has the name Saeng Chan or moonlight waterfall. The beauty of Pha Tam has drawn both Thai and foreign tourists for many years.
Other two prominent waterfalls are Toong Na Mueng waterfall not far from Saeng Chan on Highway no. 2112, and Sawan waterfall, a fall that looks like a necklace. These two falls are also beautiful, easy to visit, and rich in nature. Pha Tam also offers many other tourist attractions. There is a Khong River viewpoint offering a soothing view of the river of life and the riverbank lifestyles. Next is Sao Chaleang, sandstone pillars and stone formations. Watching the glorious sunrise at Pha Tam viewpoint is also another activity you cannot afford to miss since Pha Tam is at the far east of Thailand and the first light of day shines here.
