Drift through the limestone archways as they stand in their own rugged but protective stance, enclosing you in their giant arms and secluding you and cradling you in a mysterious nook. Glide across the waters that appear deceptively thick and green as they take on the shade of the clusters of trees above them while under the bright and shiny sun, they turn lustrous and crystal clear. The Krabi experience of Kayaking is a retreat into nature’s own seclusion with a historic backdrop of limestone caves and their engravings and murals to intrigue one with their complexity at an era so by gone.
Being on a Kayak is indeed not only the best way to explore the waters around the Ao Luk, Ao Thalane and Koh Hong island but it is also the most nature friendly option as these create little noise and pollution. Most hotels offer guided tours with the option to rent Kayaks together with tourist guides who have a lot to explain when it comes to the limestone caves and their murals. The scenery is simply spectacular and with dramatic Karst topography and the caves among which the famous Big Headed Ghost cave is the most decorative cave that contains paintings as old as 3000 years. A drift thorough the Anaconda cave can be a mysterious adventure as you glide in almost darkness listening to the ripples and the drips that maintain their own watery melody in the dark . There is so much flora as well as fauna to be explored and identified, from thickly grown kind of mangrove swamps to the kingfishers and hornbills to the bright coloured crabs on Hong Island. One can also go snorkeling or for a simple dip in the water at selected place where the water is cold and the currents can be quite deceptively strong or better still pay a visit to a fish and oyster farm.
The Krabi resorts are just as privileged by nature to possess some strong landscape as a backdrop that provide a strong attraction to the tourists. Anantara Si Kao Thailand is located on the pristine sands of the beach with the ravishing view of the Andaman sea in front while it is close to other attractions like national parks, country clubs and golf parks. Reachable by land or even boat, this Trang resort is made closer to the world by the Trang air port and also the Krabi international air port that is a mere 1.5 kilometres away.
