Snorkelling Tour in Krabi

Memorable Days Out

Part of the appeal of a holiday in Krabi, is that it is so far removed from the routine of every day life. Visitors feel a sense of freedom, partly due to the delightful change in scenery and partly because there are so many novel experiences to try.

So, next time you’re in Krabi, discover a passion for something new and enjoy one of these memorable days out!

Elephant Trekking

Although the elephant is a powerful symbol of Thailand, these gracious animals are rapidly disappearing from the countryside, making it incredibly difficult to spot them in the wild. There are a small number of elephant camps in Krabi, specifically designed to allow visitors to get up close and personal to these fascinating creatures. The camps are located within the lush Krabi jungle, also the natural habitat of other exotic wildlife and tropical birds. You will have plenty of time to observe the elephants at work, rest and play and most visits will include an hour’s trek on the back of one these gentle giants. You shouldn’t see this as exploitation, as these sanctuaries provide a level of freedom that the elephant could not possibly hope to enjoy in a zoo. The standard of care is high too – the camps must adhere to strict regulations set out by the Thai National Livestock Department, covering the provision of adequate healthcare, food, water and shade.

Most trips will include transport, lunch and all refreshments and will result in a day out to treasure for a lifetime.

White Water Rafting

If lazing around on the beautiful Krabi beaches has you craving a little action, then get your heart racing again with a white knuckle ride on Krabi’s white water rapids. As with most Krabi excursions you will be well looked after throughout the course of the day – a rafting trip, set in the heart of the Krabi countryside, will usually include transportation, lunch and refreshments, safety equipment and a personal instructor to help you navigate those wild waters with confidence. A thoroughly wet, but remarkably enjoyable day out!

Snorkelling Tour

Krabi’s dive sites are ranked among the finest in the world. However, if you find the concept of scuba diving a little too daunting, you don’t have to miss out – there is always the possibility of snorkelling instead!

Snorkelling Tours are an ideal way to enjoy the very best of Krabi’s crystal clear waters, colourful coral reefs and exotic marine life. Most tours incorporate several of Krabi’s most breathtaking islands and include pickup from your Krabi resort, equipment (including mask, snorkel and life jacket), insurance, lunch and refreshments. A guide will gently introduce you to some of Krabi’s premier snorkelling sites where, if you’re lucky, you might glimpse a dolphin or even a black-tip reef shark, amongst the swarms of colourful fish.

Thai Cookery Class

If you fancy yourself as a bit of a Jamie Oliver or a Nigella Lawson in the kitchen, why not hone your culinary skills and learn how to prepare some fragrant Thai meals to re-create back home? You don’t need to be a professional chef to enjoy a fun and educational Thai cookery class in Krabi – the only ingredients you’ll need are a willingness to learn and a love of Thai food! There are a number of good Thai cookery schools in Krabi that specifically cater for tourists. A one day course with an English speaking instructor is usually sufficient to learn the basics. Classes are often held in lovely open air kitchens, which make a day tied to the kitchen sink an absolute pleasure. Of course the real icing on the cake is that you finally get to enjoy the delicious results.

Thai Massage (or Yoga for the Lazy!)

Relaxing with a Thai Massage is a sure fire way to make the office back home feel a million miles away! You mustn’t visit Krabi without indulging in one of these ancient rituals, whether it’s enjoyed down on the beach or as part of a holistic set of beauty treatments in one of Krabi’s luxury spa resorts. Stress simply melts away at the hands of an experienced Thai masseuse, who will also employ feet, elbows, knees and heels to gently press and knead your body and leave you feeling as good as new. In fact, if you spoil yourself with regular massages throughout your Krabi holiday, you’ll not only feel rejuvenated and energised, but will even notice an improvement in posture and flexibility. Just what the doctor ordered before heading back home to the grind!
