Krabi’s

Inner

Beauty

The sheer beauty of Krabi

– radiant in its dazzling

cerulean waters that

blend and sometimes

contrast with an indigo

sky and dreamy sunsets

– puts it at the top of the

list for many travellers.

If the pull of the sea, sand, and karst

islands weren’t enough, Krabi offers

forests and mountains, along with

local history, a thriving mix of cultural

heritage and therapeutic regimens that

create an overall feel of wellbeing.

To top it all off is the hospitality and

friendliness of the local people that

makes the island a true sanctuary for

relaxation and indulgence in nature.

THE ROMANCE OF LAEM SAK

Your boat trip from Laem Sak will pass

by dramatic landscapes, including the

amazing ancient cliff paintings. Be part

of the flora and fauna preservation

by participating in an orchid planting

activity. Experience the diverse Buddhist-

Islamic-Chinese culture, where people

of different origins and beliefs have

co-existed in harmony for generations.

A local dish not to be missed is rice

prepared with a local shrimp paste and

served with the crunch of seaweed

grapes known as green caviar.

THE HAPPINESS OF

WANDERING FREELY

A Krabi outing takes you to the mangrove

forest and the tranquil village of Thung

Yi Pheng in the Lanta Island district.

Relax your mind and body during your

stay in the local community, enveloped

by tranquillity and surrounded by nature.

Practise some mindfulness while listening

to birdsong and rustling leaves and cool

breezes. Let your thoughts flow with the

streams. This great combination with

nature makes you come away revitalised.
