Krabi

overview

In southern Thailand, along the waters of the Andaman Sea, lies the region of Krabi, known for its white-sand beaches, colorful coral reefs, hidden bays dotted with islands, natural thermal springs, and waterfalls. Float through scenic mangroves to seaside limestone caves concealing hidden passageways and untouched beaches. Eat lunch with the fishermen of Koh Panyee, a floating village built entirely on stilts over the water. Hike the 1,272 steps to the summit of Wat Tham Sua, a hillside temple complex built right into a 6,000-foot high mountain—its caves and crags serving as a home for devout monks. Relax with an authentic royal Thai massage—the perfect ending to a glorious day in Thailand’s tropical nirvana before returning to your villa-style resort located right on the beach.

Arrival in Krabi

You are met at the Krabi International Airport and transferred by land and sea to the Tubkaak Boutique Resort. At this intimate eco-friendly resort, relaxation begins immediately, perhaps on the private secluded beach or at the swimming pool. Its spacious rooms combine luxury with traditional Thai decor including quality fabrics, an outdoor shower and soaking tub, and a small terrace. With beachfront dining and bars, the resort also features a spa, swimming pool, fitness center, library, and lounge. For dinner, the terrace restaurant overlooking the sea serves Thai and Western cuisine. A short flight from Bangkok, the Krabi region of southern Thailand is known for its gorgeous coastline along the Andaman Sea and numerous offshore islands and national parks of lush forest with caves and waterfalls.

This morning after a breakfast overlooking the sea, you set off with your private guide on a water-based adventure to the scenic mangrove areas of Tham Lod, with its limestone cave, and Khao Majoo, with a unique rock formation. You kayak through an incredible network of pristine natural limestone caves and hidden passageways. You then continue on to the offshore islands of Khao Ping Kun and Khao Thapoo, the latter famously known as one of the locations in the classic Bond film, “The Man with the Golden Gun.” You finally arrive at the floating fishing village of Koh Panyee, built entirely on stilts over the water, where you break for a delicious and authentic Thai lunch.

Day 3

Krabi

Private guided hot spring and spa tour and Tiger Cave Monastery visit

Today’s private guided excursion takes you along the “Other Silk Road”—the ancient silk road through the south of Thailand that for centuries served foreign traders who transported goods by sea from the Greek and Roman empires to China and back. Your destination is a hot spring in the middle of an idyllic rainforest. Shaded by a forest canopy, the thermal pool’s waters are rich in mineral salts—the ideal place to soak up minerals and ease aching muscles. The next stop is Wat Tham Sua, also known as the Tiger Cave Monastery, a hillside temple complex in which monks live and worship within a maze of caves. One of the caves has what appear to be tiger pawprints embedded in stone. A total of 1,272 steps lead to a magnificent almost-2,000-foot-high lookout point, revealing Panombenja National Pak in the north. Later, you proceed to a spa with traditional Thai decor where you can choose from a menu of treatments that are included in this tour, such as a Royal Thai massage, or a head, back, and shoulder massage. Afterward, you are transferred back to the resort to spend the remainder of the day and evening at your leisure.
