If you like working out, you might think it's hard to do so while on vacation.
But actually, a lot of accommodations offer great facilities like swimming pool, fitness room, and sports equipments.
It's good to keep yourself fit by starting your vacation day with exercise and one great idea is 'Sea Kayak’.
Sea Kayak is an eco-friendly activity you can do while exploring the wonders of sea caves, limestone mountains. mangrove forests and beautiful beaches in Krabi.
If you here at Railay Beach, you can do sea kayak right in front of your hotel, but there are also some other areas in Krabi that are famous for sea kayaking such as Hong Island and Ao Thalane.
Alright. If you're ready, let's kayak together!
There are so many gorgeous islands in Krabi.
But if you take public transportation, you're normally taken to each particular spot at the same time as others. And that might be too crowded for you to enjoy your time.
If you come in a group of friends or families, renting a private boat for a day or two is a great idea because you can go anywhere you want at the time you want. Enjoy your ride!
Krabi enjoys a reputation as the adventure sports and eco-travel destination and snorkelling is a major part of this.
Anyone who can swim can rent a snorkelling kit and look for underwater adventure right of Krabi's many beaches.
Snorkelers in search of bigger thrills can join snorkle boat tour or rent a private boat to visit snorkelling sites around the area.
Andaman Coast is situated in southern Thailand, on the west side. It will be a great idea to come here to observe the sunset scene. It's spectacular here.
In front of me, you can see the sun amidst the beautiful sea water and the natural landscape, like limestones here. Really beautiful.
You can watch the sunset from anywhere you like in Krabi or in southern Thailand. But for me, Railay is my favourite.
Here on Railay, there are some nice chilling places like here, Sunset Restaurant.
You can just order drinks, or some snacks, or food and enjoy watching the sunset with your loved ones. Really great idea!
Today, we are at Krabi Khlong Thom, 'Nam Tok Ron', the Hot Springs in Krabi.
The water is hot! It's about 40-45 degree celsius.
It's special here becauseI've been to a lot of waterfalls and it's cold. But here, it's hot. And it's good for your health, for your body too.
So, 'Khlong Thom' is the name of the 'Tambon (sub-district)'. Next, I'm going to bathe in the waterfalls. Let's go enjoy!
The weather is nice today. And we're now going to 'Koh Klang' or 'Klang Island' in Krabi town.
I've heard it's a community of Muslims and there are a lot of great activities.
And we going there by long tail boat. From here to Koh Klang...maybe 15 minutes.
There is a specific name for this kind of boat, Hua Tong, which is only found in Krabi?.
Hua Tong Boat is commonly found around the area of Krabi and nearby southern Thailand provinces. It's not only a main transportation, but also the uniqueness of the province.
Hua Tong Boat was first built by local communities of Krabi.
Later, people in nearby provinces such as Phang-Nga, Phuket, and Ranong hired the boat builders in Krabi to build the same for them.
The builders designed the boat to have high prow as the Andaman sea often has strong winds and high waves.
The high prow enables the boat to better paddle through the waves and can effectively prevent water from splashing into the boat.
Here we are at 'Baan Khlong Prasong'. It is a little village next to Koh Klang. And here, the recommended activity that I would recommend to you is Batik Painting.
And actually, it started with the candle wax. They use the candle wax to paint a picture onto this cotton piece of cloth.
Mostly, it's the kind of flower picture. And then, they prepare colours for you. It's water colour. They have, mostly, four or five colors for you.
You can use your imagination to put each colour onto each space between the candle wax.
You have to be careful because when you put it a little, the watercolor will run until it meets the candle wax in that area.
So, be careful. Do it little by little. It is time to exercise concentration and your imagination. No pattern. You can make it one color, two colors, or many colors.
So, it's a must-do activity if you come here to Krabi.
