Our first stop was the Hot Spring Waterfall. We walked on a nature trail through the tropical jungles to the hot springs.
Debi and I swam in the waterfall pools. We were the first people there and it was wonderful having the hot springs, between 38deg and 40 deg, to ourselves.
Our next stop was the emerald pool. We walked on another nature trail to the freshwater jungle pool. It was really an emerald green colour. It was the most stunning fresh water that I have ever swam in!
We also walked to the crystal pool which had the clearest waters. You could see every rock, twig and leave on the bottom of the pool
Next we continued along the nature trail to the blue pool. This pool was formed by a hot spring under the earth’s crust. Little bubbles rose to the pool’s surface. The scary thing about this pool was that it had sinking mud and all the logs lay at the bottom of the pool.
We had Thai green curry, chicken with cashew nut and more fried rice fot lunch. We drove through Krabi’s city centre and past many of the palm oil and rubber plantations.
We took a long tail boat across the lagoon to Khao Khanap Nam. They are a couple of hills which form the natural gateway to Krabi.
We walked through the Kanabnam caves and walked through the mangrove forest. There were impressive clusters of stalactites and stalagmites. Archeologists have found a number of human skeletons in the caves We then returned with the long tail to Chao Fah Bridge.
Our last stop were the food markets. There was such a variety of fruits… and for so cheap! There were so many fruit that I have never seen before in my life 🙂 definitely a tropical country
