The year 2020 is fast approaching! It’s time to go on an adventure as a reward for your accomplishments. Perhaps you want to explore another place to start the new year on a clean slate. If that’s the case, Krabi in Southern Thailand offers endless activities that give a grand welcome to your 2020.

Here are several must-try activities while you are in this paradise.

Viewpoint Railay Beach

The towering limestone cliffs of Railay will immediately captivate you, and it is because of this that this place is a preferred destination for rock climbers. However, if you’re not into scaling these pillars, you can enjoy a captivating view by hiking to the viewpoint for about one kilometer. The pain and the stress that you feel will be worthwhile once you gaze upon the fantastic sights from this viewpoint. After taking all the pictures you want, hike down for about ten minutes to take a refreshing dip into a saltwater lagoon.

Tab Kak Hang Nak Nature Trail

That hike in Railay is just a teaser to what Tab Kak Hang Nak can offer. Though its trail can take up to six hours to complete, the viewpoint provides the best views in Krabi. Spend an hour at the summit to look at the scenery from every possible angle. The view from the peak is a spectacular picture of the neighboring bays and the plains. Wear an appropriate pair of shoes when you scale this nature trail because of the steep climbs in some parts. You must also bring water to keep yourself hydrated throughout the hike. If you want to enjoy the view better, visit the viewpoint earlier in the day to avoid the sun’s glare and experience bearable sunlight.


Phranang Cave

Also known as Princess Cave, Phranang Cave at the eastern side of Railey Bay is perfect for light cave exploring. Take a peek at stunning stalagmites and stalactites in this cave that is only accessible by boat. Since the cave’s entrance looks like a phallic shrine to a goddess, fishers often leave their offerings for a good catch. After exploring the cave, you can stay at the nearby beach to kill time and enjoy exceptional views that nature has to offer.


Sunrise or sunset cruises

You won’t feel shortchanged whether you start or end your day with this cruise. Ride a wooden Siamese Junk while exploring the islands of Tup, Gai, Poda, Wasam, and Ta Ming. You can also enjoy water activities like swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, and paddleboarding, with the sun as your backdrop. If that’s not enough to captivate you, savor the dishes in their mouth-watering Thai buffet to complete the experience. After a day of food and fun, the sun setting on the horizon is the perfect landscape to cap off the tour on a high note.


Unwind in a relaxing haven

After exploring the sights and sounds of Krabi, it’s great to return to a hotel that can shake your tired feeling away. Nakamanda Resort and Spa is the perfect retreat because of their gorgeous villas that can offer a view of the sea or a private jacuzzi.

As you recharge your body, pamper yourself with a massage at The Naga Spa or savor a sumptuous meal at The Kitchen Restaurant.
