Relaxing Krabi

Relaxing with a book on Railay's Phra Nang Cave Beach
Forget about everything and just enjoy the moment
If you are coming from a city, you may find Krabi stuck in the slow lane. Instead of spending your time trying to find a good 3G connection*, take the opportunity to shift down a couple of gears, turn off your smartphone and embrace the relaxed pace of life here. An afternoon nap is a good place to start. Then perhaps explore one of the many, many places available to do exactly nothing – or at most read a book.

Suggested itinerary

Day 1 – Hot springs
Day 2 – Hong island cruise
Day 3 – Massage on beach -> or golf?

Try watching the clouds go by at the Hot Springs, or feel the wind in your hair as you cruise the islands. Finally, incorporate a long lunch and a Thai massage into your holiday routine and feel all that horrible city stress slip away. Now you just have to resist the urge to tweet about it.

*For Facebook addicts, there are actually several Thai 3G providers that cover Krabi now – AIS, DTAC and True; most hotels will also provide wi-fi connections.
