Product Description

  • AVAILABILITY: Friday, Saturday, Sunday, all year round, with a minimum of 2 pax booked
  • APPROXIMATE TIMING: 13.30 – 20.30
  • ITINERARY: This unique small group tour will let you experience two very different, yet completely authentic sides of Krabi: the bustling market town that is the provincial capital, and the rural backwaters on the other side of the river. Travel to Krabi Town where you will first visit the riverside landmark “Pu Dam” or black crab statue, and take in the view of the famous “dog ear” mountains, Khao Kanab Nam. Next it’s time to head onto the river in a traditional longtail boat. You will pass by local fishermen, protected mangrove forests and stop off to explore some caves, as well as a fish farm built out on stilts over the water.

    The afternoon is spent on the heritage island of Koh Klang, where people for the most part still live in wooden houses and follow a very traditional Thai way of life that is fast disappearing. Travelling by “samlor”, a local motorbike taxi, you will learn about the old ways of making rice, join in with animal feeding, try your hand at batik painting and visit a local craft centre.

    You’ll have an early seafood dinner in a floating restaurant along the river. Remember to leave some room for the amazing street food snacks on offer at your next stop, the weekend “Walking Street” market in Krabi Town! Here you can shop, eat, drink and just take in the sights, smells and sounds of this popular night market. There are often musical performances to see, as well as bargain handmade souvenirs to buy.

    This is a great trip for people interested in how Thai people live – you will get a real insight into both traditional and modern ways of life here. For those visiting during the week, or who do not want a late start, there is a daytime version of this tour available all week round.

    Expected group size: 2 – 10 pax, depending on the day and time of year.
