Why Tranh Waterfall (Suoi Tranh) is special ?

Tranh Waterfall is the best place for a refreshing fresh water dip. Follow the shady path up the hill and alongside the stream until you reach the falls. It’s a pleasant walk and you can cool off with a dip. The waterfall draws visitors because of its natural beauty, and many tourists choose to swim and bathe in the park's waterfalls.

What to explore at Tranh Waterfall (Suoi Tranh)?

Once you’ve paid the small entry fee it’s a 10 – 15 minute walk along a well trodden path through the jungle. There are many rock pools in which to take a dip, at the top there’s a 4m waterfall (sometimes from January to May water can be a little lacking), the whole place has a lovely ambience.

The Suoi Tranh waterfall is not the biggest or the most dramatic of its kind, but it does have its own charms. There is a moderately daunting 200m walk to get to the waterfall, or rather the collection of small waterfalls and rock-pools and one larger fall. Once you get there, however, you have the option of diving into the clear cool stream, or hunting for wild orchids. Nearby is the nicely named Bat Cave. The falls are 7km south-east of Duong Dong, just off the road to Ham Ninh village. Admission costs 1000 Dong (US$0.05) plus an extra 1000 Dong for your motorcycle if you are riding one. Another popular Phu Quoc waterfall you could check out is Suoi Da Ben (Da Ben Stream).

How to get to Tranh Waterfall (Suoi Tranh)?

To get to Tranh Stream from Duong Dong, call a taxi, or rent a motorbike from your hotel, and head east on 30 Thang Tu Street. This is one of the island’s main roads — most locals refer to it as a highway — and it is paved the majority of the way to the stream. Stay on the road for roughly 5km until you reach what looks like an entrance to Jurassic Park on the northern side. It is a large, ivy covered gate, which probably used to say the name of the stream but now has its words obscured by vines.

Go through the gate, pass the gardens filled with sculptures and live cows, and head back to the small carport filled with motorbikes. Pay the man at the desk and up the path you go.

My friends and I rented motor bikes to get to the waterfall. Although the roads are under construction and the trek to the waterfall was a bit bumpy, the whole experience was amazing. The walk up the trail to the waterfall is beautiful, local people and travelers are exploring the depths of the creek, relaxing by the flow of the water, picnicing and having a good time. Once you get to the waterfall, it is not very big but it is a joy to swim around and under. You can also easily get to the top of the waterfall and sit with your feet dangling over. Wonderful experience altogether.

Its a 15-20min walk up a rocky trail where I see many locals resting/ family gatherings near to the stream with their own hammocks.The "waterfall" was full of people when we visited. The place was small-ish... Good for a change of scenery I guess, although i felt that Kota Tinggi or similar would have been a better choice if you are looking for a decent waterfall.
