Day 15 – Mangrove Kayaking

About half way along the coast between Than Bok Khoranee and Krabi town is a bay of mangroves that may be the most beautiful bay in Thailand. It’s a beautiful eco system with very rich faunas and plants that are not found easily in other parts of thailand. Here, bays and canyons are like never ending passageways.

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. If lucky, you may have a chance to see the monkeys or macaques coming very close to you while you are paddling.

Day 16 – Head to Railay Beach

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.

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.

Have a picnic 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.
