Exploring The Mangroves in Krabi
Along the 2,600 km of the Andaman coastline of  Southern Thailand, the survival of  one and a half a million local coastal fishermen and their households is intimately linked to the health of the coastal wetland ecosystem. This ecosystem is composed of three important living resources : mangrove forests, sea grass beds and coral reefs
– forming a complex, interdependent, and delicately balanced natural connection.

On The Rock

Krabi Rock & Fire International Contest 2011
Krabi has world-class rock climbing sites with more than 700 rock climbing routes created since  the late 1980’s. Magnificent limestone cliffs casting long shadow during the day makes a perfect heaven for climbers to select  their own levels and challenges. Sprouting along the shoreline with sheer vertical rock faces, international competitors gather to scale bolted routes with steep pocketed walls, overhangs and dropping stalactites.

Better Than A Gecko’s Foot

Krabi Rock & Fire International Contest 2011
Bouldering climbing is a popular sport in Tonsai and Railay. A good way to practice technical rock climbing skills over a  crash pad when hopping from stone to stone mimicking the agile gecko. Deep Water Solo is another form of solo rock climbing that relies solely upon the presence of water at the base of a climb to protect against injury. Basically you take a boat out to an island and as the captain hovers near one of the cliffs, you dive off the boat with your climbing shoes on, swim up to the rock wall and start climbing. There is no need for ropes or a belay because if you fall, you end up in the sea. Ideally you want to reach a comfortable spot before letting go and kicking off the wall. Just slipping off a hold during a tough move and falling straight down is far from ideal but you can always start all over again.

Comments Off on The Bay Regatta — Phuket – Phang Nga – Krabi

Set sail for the new challenge


Uncertainties over the future of the 2011 Bay Regatta (formerly Phang Nga Bay Regatta) were resolved recently when the Ao Chalong Yacht Club (ACYC) stepped in, albeit late in the day, to organise this massively popular ‘roving’ regatta. The Bay Regatta regularly attracts 40-50 entries and is scheduled for Wednesday 9th to Sunday 13th February 2011.
When it became clear that the 2011 regatta, the 14th event, looked like it was going to be cancelled, ACYC’s Commodore, Mick Kealy, called an emergency meeting to rally the troops; the decision was made to move forward.  “There is a lot of work to be done quickly,” said Kealy, noting that it is now late in the day to attract the sponsors needed to make the event work. “Events like this, and the images they project of Phuket and the surrounding areas, are of tremendous value in boosting the region’s image, not just as one of the best yachting destinations in the world, but also as a high value tourism destination across the spectrum,” said Kealy.

Unique Success
For years, Thailand has been developing a unique tourism industry with something to offer for everyone. In the ” Land of Smiles ” featuring a modern capital city with countless  attractions  spread out among its provinces. Each province features their own  history, unique culture, cuisine, temples and activities. Many visitors can enjoyed outstanding beaches, islands, delectable Thai food and relaxing massage under the sun, sand and sea.

Life Is Local
With the touristy appearance especially along the Andaman Coast, it is impossible to understand the local Thai people and its hospitality without learning first about its daily lifestyles that contribute into a phenomenal tourist destination.
Try to put money into local people’s hands by spending your money in the local economy. Engaging tours and excursions or services run by locals will educate you and benefit them. The money filters through the local economy and it can provide jobs, food on the table, diversify the local economy and improve the quality and sustainability of tourism.

Last day of the Vegetarian Festival in Phuket, Thailand. Alter carriers dance in explosions at the Phuket Vegetarian Festival Street Procession, Phuket Town, Thailand. Young men carry alters of the deity images though town which culminates at central locations where merchants cover them with huge strands of firecrackers and larger explosives. The louder and longer blasts are best to drive away evil spirits. The experience is deafening and engulfs the men and alters in a painful barrage of fire and smoke.

2010 Phuket Vegetarian Festival – Full Schedule

Posted By :  jamie-monk


The festival mostly takes place around Phuket Town and the many Chinese Shrines in Phuket that reflect the Chinese ancestry of many of the people here. Most of the shrines are in or near the town (Jui Tui, Bang Neow, Kathu, Sam Kong), with a few around other parts of the island. The amazing street processions take place early morning around the town – if you want to see one, it’s a good idea to get a hotel in town, as processions start around 7am. If your hotel is in Patong, please note it takes around 30 minutes into town and traffic will be diverted around the procession routes. There are “Jae” food stalls all over the island, but not much around the beach areas. Phuket Town is the place to be.

Hungry Ghost Festival – Sart Chin (สารทจีน)

The Ghost Festival also known as the Hungry Ghost Festival is a traditional Chinese festival and holiday celebrated by Chinese in many countries. In the Chinese calendar, the Ghost Festival is on the 15th night of the seventh lunar month (14th in southern China). In Chinese tradition, the fifteenth day of the seventh month in the lunar calendar is called Ghost Day and the seventh month in general is regarded as the Ghost Month (鬼月), in which ghosts and spirits, including those of the deceased ancestors, come out from the lower realm. Distinct from both the Qingming Festival (in Spring) and Chung Yeung Festival (in Autumn) in which living descendants pay homage to their deceased ancestors, on Ghost Day, the deceased are believed to visit the living.
