Krabi – Emerald of the Andaman ๐Ÿ˜Ž

imageAfter spending several lazy days island hopping in the Gulf of Thailand, it was time to hit the road/water & continue our journey south. Another ferry to connect with a bus landed us in Krabi on the Andaman seacoast. If you are into rock climbing this is the place for you!! Limestone karsts surround us on land & sea makinimageg the views superb. There are hundreds of beaches to explore with warm sparking waters (temperature is 29C year-round) in gorgeous hues of blue & green that by far surpass the Caribbean. Day trips on either speed or Longboats are the thing to do, so of course we were game to explore some of the beautiful spots accessible only by these water taxis.

These gulf & seaside towns are busy … T=Thailand & Thailand=TOURIST! The tourist population is predominantly East European, Indian & Chinese. We have run into a handful of Canadian & American travellers, far different from last year. It is also hardย to believe the growth in these towns & islands, especially since many were hit by the Tsunami a mere 10 years ago.ย Of interest, a large portion of the population in this area is Muslim however there does not seem to be any religious tension & the folks live in peace and harmony.

Tomorrow we are on the move again, heading to Kho Lanta, a quieter version of its raucous neighbor, Koh Pi Pi & then on to Phuket.

We love to wander, aimlessly at times it seems, and will keep moving as far and as long as we can. Serendipity has provided many wonders along the way, when least expected, and we love the anticipation of the 'next great find' just around the corner.
