Krabi is a town on the west coast of southern Thailand. When I researched this small town for a quiet vacation, I was not aware that it had so much to offer. I have promised myself,at least one more visit to this beautiful town.

  Beautiful Buddha inside the Monkey temple cave.

Caves on one of the  islands.
                                                Deep inside the dense forest, a waterfall ..
                                                  A gentle stream flows inside the rainforest.

                         Majestic Elephants and a ride across the Rainforest, and Rubber trees.

                               A training session inside the pool prior to deep sea diving course.

                                    Canoeing through the Mangroves and Karst  formations

 I loved Krabi more than Phuket. The latter, I feel is more commercialized ,hence expensive. We packed as much as we could in a week's time without losing out on the relaxation bit. Planning your own itinerary helps  in spacing out various activities unlike a conducted tour . I mean, who wants to be pushed around on a vacation ? Breakfast gets over at 10am....who cares ! Hard Rock Cafe and a stroll around the bazaar in the evening instead of a theme parks. Snorkling ,deep sea diving, Thai cookery classes, paragliding, canoeing, kayaking, safari name it and Krabi has that much and more to offer and very reasonably so.
