Several species of Kingfishers, little Herons and Crab Eating Macaques are almost guaranteed to be seen in this area. Ao Thalane has not yet officially designated as a national park but it may soon become one.

The area of Railay is actually a large peninsula jutting out into the Andaman, but what makes this a truly special place is that it’s cut off from the rest of the mainland by a row of steep hills so is only accessible by boat. Railay has risen from peaceful fishing village to a world-class tourist destination, thanks to its imposing limestone cliffs that shoot out of the crystal blue waters to tower over the white sandy beaches. Enjoy the nature and beautiful scenery of Railay beach, another perfect spot to get your camera out.

Breakfast included.

The island is composed of 2 small islands Koh Tub and Koh Mor which are joined together with sand bars which are visible at low tide.

Kai Island (or Chicken Island); an amazing rock formation as the big head of Ostrich or chicken. You will see a lot of small colourful fishes when snorkelling in this area.

Enjoy lunch on the beach at Poda Island; an island with white sandy beaches, clear water and
schools of colourful fishes in abundance. Again, it is a perfect place for snorkelling or swimming.

In the afternoon, visit Phranang Cave and Phranang Beach to swim or just relax. Once we’ve soaked up the sun and swam through the turquoise water we’ll take you back to the hotel for our last night in Krabi.

Breakfast & lunch included.
