After arriving and feeling nicely settled in our tropical villa bungalow at the Sunrise Resort on Railay Beach East in Krabi, it was time to book some activities. We met Michael, the operator of Pla Luang, a Siamese sailing junk offering sunset cruises. Singing up for the 1/2 day boat cruise to various local islands for some swimming, snorkelling, kayaking, rock climbing and cliff diving was exactly why we came here. I hope the following pictures help to convey what this adventure is all about for the cost of 1,500 thai baht per person which includes a nice Thai dinner of Masaman chicken. Beer was extra but only 80 baht each.
Suitable for large groups, this boat can hold about 30 people but we had 12 on our day. The atmosphere is fun with good music on board. Good scenery is part of the joy of being on the water and it gives you a great prospective from which to enjoy the Krabi coastline and local islands.
If rock climbing and cliff diving is your thing you are going to love this adventure! After your 4 meter rope ladder climb out of the water, the rest is up to you. Scale the cliff as high as your skill and ability will afford! After hours of snorkelling, cliff diving and kayaking it was time to get back on board to enjoy our nicely prepared and last but not least, enjoy the sunset!
