Каякинг в Краби

Ao Tha Len Bay (also Ao Thalane) – an incredibly beautiful place and best for kayaking in Krabi province. Don't be afraid of difficulties: visit and kayaking on the Gulf is available in almost every tourist, special skills to control the boat is not required, even for children. And even if you are not ready for independent travel, it's easy to get a tour from any resort of the province. The most simple trips include a Shuttle from the hotel and kayaking in the company of a guide, more expensive include lunch, disembarkation, horse riding and so on, depending on the program.

Bay is a small, but deeply in the dry land by a narrow strip, so the water is almost always calm. During the walk you will enjoy magnificent views, visit some grottoes and caves, you will see the mangroves. Also here you can find exotic animals, fish jumpers, feed the monkeys, but guarantee that you'll see them, no, there is as lucky.

The success of the visit depends of the Bay but the weather still against the tide. It is best to visit it in high water, not in high tide or low tide during which some part of the Bay are not available. Schedule of the tides can be viewed here

🕐 Working time: the Bay can be visited in the day time, tours are in the morning, after lunch and for the whole day.

🚶 How to get there: located 20 km from AO Nang (the Bay on the map Krabi). It is best to visit the Bay as part of guided tours but you can drive yourself in a rented transport and is already in place to rent a kayak.

Hello! Because the island is quite small, from long beach to the South 20-30 minutes on the bike. But on the bike it is just too much, 30 kilometers to go, and even in the heat. I think not everyone will master, but in principle, if breaks and holidays, be sure to stock up on water, it is possible for 3-4 hours to get there, but it's so vskidku. Anyway in my opinion this is a dubious idea, if you consider it from the point of view just to get. It is better to use a motorcycle taxi. If you were a lover go and see this as a trip for pleasure and travel, the high rental would find no problems, everything is there. ...

Well, what about "to take a motorbike as not knowing how to drive" - IMHO forget it. If at least some experience was, you can. But without prejudice, I understand you girl. I will not impugn your abilities, but in the eyes of the distributors you just "girl", and even then likely to get a divorce you will have a lot more ...

Thank you. Hence, it is necessary to select in absentia the most beautiful beach and the hotel next to it, so on the taxi ride :-(
Write something about Phi Phi island and about the island on which it is possible to go with Lanta on a trip. Especially about a desert, a jungle, "where many wild monkeys". There are? How to get how much, can I spend the night on some deserted island? ...

About Phi Phi, we will have relatively soon complete travel guide. For you to his side do not look, this is not Paradise island, and ravey. Quiet area it can not be called. On other Islands I can not say, went round a few of them along with the tour, there is always the beaches are always Packed, and bring Turikov boat for boat. But try to look at the Islands South of Lanta, there seems to be not so crowded. ...

If I remember correctly, the minivans stopped on the street jazz Alley in shopping centre Vogue. This is from the promenade with crab 15 minute walk. There is, in any case, everything is close, within walking distance. About pierce Chao FA not sure what to Lanta leave from there, or rather has always been sure that are not sent unless something has changed. And ferry tickets are not fundamentally where to buy, the difference is not big, and even if the Agency you transfer to will offer, and so will have to get. ...

What places would you recommend for snorkeling with kids 7-10 years in Krabi ?
The distance from Krabi Town does not matter - have a car and are considering a couple of days to rent a house, but the duration of the trip on the boat/the boat I would like to minimize.
Perfect - do not swim if there are reefs close to shore would be ideal. ...
admin 18 December, 2019
Yes, like anywhere, there are no snorkeling on the mainland, at least I don't know. In fact there places to stay are limited to those that we have described in the guide, others do not. And the whole snorkeling on the Islands or on boats. ...

Easier to just go to AO Nang, and there near the shore can cross-train and then by boat. ...
