Re: PADI - Scuba diving

by Thai-Guy

John,

Can't remember the names of the dive shops but there are about 8 dive shops in Krabi and all will be capable of PADI certification. A few shops along the beaches and several more shops going up the road at the south end of Ao Nang. However, I would recommend another alternative.

Get certified in Koh Phi Phi Don. It's an hour ferry from Krabi. You'll probably go diving there anyway from Krabi. When I was in Krabi and inquired about diving, they all said they go out to Phi Phi for the day to dive. The point is that if you stay on Koh Phi Phi, you'll already be there and avoid the daily (multi-trips) out to Phi-Phi islands. There are almost 2 dozen scuba shops on Koh Phi Phi Don. I think they have agreements to charge the same rates. However, the goal may be find a shop that's less popular so you can get personalized attention.

Not sure when your actually traveling or if you have already completed your travels, rest assured, diving out of Koh Phi Phi can be very enjoyable.

Travel Tips for Krabi

Your coin, please

by kyoub

Most public toilets either have a lady sitting at the entrance to collect your coin before you are allowed inside or otherwise they just leave the box sitting on a table and hope you will put your coin in the box.
These are generally squat toilets with a bucket of water nearby for flushing.

Andaman Nature Resort

by Jez79 about Andaman Nature Resort

Another popular nighttime hang-out on TonSai is the Andaman Nature Resort. Located next to the Green Bar, the Andaman has a nice restaurant and a more communal atmosphere. The music is generally Thai covers of western songs, but it's a fun place to hang out. If you're looking to party, though, this really isn't the place. Casual. No shoes allowed.

Yummy Pancakes

by touraco

You can find this along the streets in Krabi town or along Ao Nang Beach.

It is essentially made with dough composed of fat, egg, flour and water to form a thin pancake. Inside you can find bananas or cheese or any available fillings and on the top, it will be sprinkled with sugar and condensed milk with choco fudge.

Yummy yummy...it's about 15 - 20 baht.

Rubber Tapping Demonstration

by M0B1US

As part of the James Bond Discovery Tour, you can just imagine the saucy smiles on our faces and stifled sniggers when our guide, Porn (that was her name, honest!), said she was going to give us a 'rubber show'!

Rubber is one of Thailand's major industries and the country is one of the World's leading producers - it might even be the leading one, but I can't remember...

Throughout the southern region of Thailand are massive plantations of rubber trees which are tapped at aged seven when they reach maturity.

The bark is slowly stripped in a downwards facing diagonal cut so that the tree's milky sap (natural latex) can run down a channel and into a cup to be collected by the harvester.

That's pretty much all there is to the collection process, and the trees remain productive for about 20-30 years after which they are cut down for their wood so that another grove can be planted.

Rubber crops and farmers are highly vulnerable to the violent ups and downs of international pricing and are just emerging from a number of years of low prices, for this reason many farmers diversify in order to mitigate against years of poor returns.

Once the latex has been harvested, it is poured into 'cakes' and put through a mangle so that it ends up shaped like a rubber doormat. These are then hung out to dry as you would your washing...

This was a fascinating end to a wonderful day as it was amazing to see how one of nature's humble trees could produce a material essential to so many of modern civilisation's technological applications. It is yet another reminder that we should act to preserve our dwindling rainforests as there are still so many plant species that we know so little about, but could hold the keys to an vast cornucopia of resources that we are currently in danger of losing forever through our wanton and destructive ignorance...

Cave

by kyoub

One of Southern Thailand's most famous caves is about 5km from Krabi. It is officially Wat Tham Seua but called Tiger Cave Temple.
The best part of the temple grounds is the steep climb of 1272 steps to the top of a karst with a buddha shrine and great views.
My husband did this, you can see his pictures on my Thailand pages.
