Short Note: Do you know I have a secret blog recording my diary to lose weight here.
One of the highlights in my Krabi trip was to visit the marine national park, or Crocodile Canyon they call it.
Price for two on a canoe will usually set you back 900 baht (RM90 or US 25) with a guide. Remember to get bring your sun block, cause it’s going to be HOT! (The next day I had sunburns, which is unbelievable because I never had sunburn since elementary school)
Unlike other kayaking trips I’ve been on (one in Vietnam, few in several Peninsular islands and one at Port Dickson beach), this has to top my chart of fun and extraordinary ride (and to think kayaking’s supposed to be a very boring and tiring ride).
I have to admit, this trip to the Crocs Canyon plays a vital role in my declamation of having a fan-tabulous time in Krabi to everyone I met.
It’s not just about the experience of paddling under hot sun out on the vast ocean; kayaking in the natural marine parks in Krabi gives you the best of both the ride sensation and sights.
My kayaking partner was Matthew from the ntv7 breakfast show.
As we paddle, the guide led us around the corner and we found ourselves surrounded by sky-scraping cliffs, swamp trees, odd rocks and plants of different sorts.
It’s like entering into a realm of fairy land. I was surrounded by imposing craftsmanship of nature on water. Everywhere I turn, there’s a sight.
Even in between.
The experience bears an uncanny resemblance to cruising on the Amazonian river in the Indiana Jones movie; or singing “Just Around The Riverbend” with Pocahontas while watching otters swim. Okay, the otters were just in my mind, but it’s a similar experience.
I chose the narrow path.
Words can only describe so much how spectacular which place is.
And what is Nicolekiss without a bit of video eh? ;)
Oh stop complaining Matthew. I’ll paddle I’ll paddle~ ish
Or I could hold on to the guide’s canoe rear rope and let him paddle for me.
