Phi Phi Island
Tha Pom, the stream of two currents, is situated at Khao Khram sub district, Muang district. Tha Pom is an ecological learning centre providing knowledge about subterranean water and amphibian plants. The special feature of this two-current stream is that from the 12th day of waxing moon to the 5th day of waning moon, there is a massive influx of seawater into Tha Pom and neighbouring riverside pavilion. It is a natural phenomenon known among locals as Nam Yai. It mixes with freshwater in the stream resulting in a light blue colour of brackish water that remains muddy for not too long. After the tide of seawater drops, the clear freshwater flows in. Such clarity is due to its origin from limestone mountains full of Calcium Carbonate which potentially precipitates sediments. Once the water flows through the limestone, this chemical substance dissolves and causes a sedimentation effect. Consequently, the water becomes so clear that fish and aquatic plants can be seen very easily. Read more
