Day 4: Kayaking at Bo Thor
Krabi Travel Blog› entry 5 of 6 › view all entries
We had breakfast at the hotel as usual and the tour car came to pick us up at 8.30am. Our tour guide was VERY friendly and spoke pretty good english! We took about 1 hr plus to reach the Bo Thor fishing village. We were served some iced water and our tour guide provided us with some dry packs so our valuables wouldn't get wet while kayaking. After teaching us how to kayak and pairing us up, we started to kayak! I was paired with the tour guide which turned out to be a VERY GOOD thing cuz i didn't know how to kayak and he ended up kayaking most of the time. HAHA!
We kayaked through the mangrove swamps to reach our first site- a floating fishing area. Our tour guide explained the equipment they used for fishing and all that stuff. We then kayak somemore to reach Tham Lod Tai which is a tunnel cave.
We kayaked back to the fishing village where our VERY NICE AND KIND tour guide treated us with lunch(fried rice with prawns) when it wasn't in our package! He even asked us to go to the other 2 caves which is only for those who bought the full day tour(rm110)!!!! So we went along and indeed, the 3rd cave we went today, was the most exciting for me! My kayak was the first to go in so it was SCARYY cuz it was PITCH BLACK!!! i didn't know what was in front of me or what was i kayaking! The last cave, Tham Khao Wang or the garden of eden lead us into an inner lagoon and it was beautiful!! We hung around for awhile to watch nature and some monkeys.
We bathed and i napped for awhile. We went to Ao Nang Beach to see the sunset but the sun was covered by clouds..so we had dinner at some food cart and bought some food for tomorrow morning's breakfast.
