Railay Bay
Railay Lagoon or Lake
Railay Lagoon or Lake is best visited at high water, as there is more water in the lagoon. At low water the lagoon can turn into a muddy pit. When you are in the lagoon you are flanked by an impressive column of limestone, it is like arriving at a place that time forgot and you would not be silly for thinking that a lagoon monster might be lurking in the water below. That said we swam in the lagoon and lived to tell the tale.

The descending path is more of a climb down over rocks than a path and it has some small drops that you need negotiate. There are some ropes to guide you but, inspect them first, you don't know how long they have been there. Keep going down until you reach the majestic lagoon. It is a beautiful place and well worth bringing some snacks or a picnic. Have a swim and go and explore the cave on the other side. The adventurous ones might want to take a head torch to explore the cave further. We met people of all abilities and even took Chris's 4 and 5 year old brother and sister. We had harnesses and ropes and a belay device for them though.

Location: In the middle of one of Railay's mountainous outcrops, Phra Nang Nai Cave, Ao Nang, Mueang, Krabi

How to get there:
To get to the lagoon you need to negotiate a steep scramble up and well trodden track. From East Railay beach head South (right if facing the sea) to the information centre and take a right. Here there is a nice flat path with impressive limestone rock features on the left and monkeys in the trees on the right. Walk down this path and look out for a very steep well worn rocky path and the danger sign on the left. Railay Viewpoint

Lanta Sea Gypsies
Lanta  Sea Gypsies
Lanta Sea Gypsies
Next to the national park headquarters, the village of Sang-ga-u is inhabited by sea gypsies. Originally from the Nicobar or Andaman Islands, the sea gypsies of former centuries were living on their boats and were feared as pirates.

In the Thai language they are called "Chao Lay" that means people of the sea and are known as the minority group "Thai Mai" which means new Thai people. They earn their living on fishing or catching lobster, other tasty shellfish and collecting bird's nests for the Chinese cuisine. When walking through one of their villages, it is obvious, that most have striking dark skin, curly hair with a slight red touch and bushy eyebrows.

The sea gypsies keep close relations to other villages but do not integrate into the Thai population. They still retain their own language, that belongs to the Malay-Indonesian language family, has no writing but is still found in many geographical names. The name "Pulau" means island and "Piapi" is the name of a tree growing in the mangrove swamps. During the centuries, the name "Pulau Piapi" changed to today's Phi Phi.

Sea gypsies have occupied the area for hundreds of years settling along the coast in stilt-built houses erected between the water level of high and low tide. They are unique in that they mix very little with the general population, speak their language and have their very own supernatural and traditional beliefs and rituals and example of the latter is the Loy Ruea (floating boat) ceremony.

Tha Pom Klong Song Nam (Pa Phru Tha Pom Khlong Song Nam)
Tha Pom Klong Song Nam
Tha Pom Klong Song Nam
Klong Tha Pom (Tha Pom Canal) is a beautiful area to visit. Five kilometers in length, it is unique for its outstandingly clear emerald-green waters and its location on the tideline. The canal water is alternatively fresh or brackish depending upon the state of the tides. This has resulted in the development of three different forest systems in a very concentrated area.

Only 100 metres from the car park you will find the amazingly clear waters which allow sight of this underwater world. The fresh water is high in dissolved limestone which inhibits the formation of precipitates so that the water truly sparkles in the sunlight, as it flows between the mangrove-lined banks.

The canal is a fascinating microcosm of Thailand’s forest areas. Visitors will first encounter the mangrove wetlands with their characteristic tortuous tangle of surface roots but this gives way to the rarely found fresh water swamp forest with small trees and sparse vegetation. This in turn yields to typical rain forest with lush tree growths and shaded paths.

Further on past the prohibited area (Tha Pom Swamp) is the Chong Phra Keaw swamp which is a 40 metre wide expanse where the sea and fresh water actually meet. The waters on the land side are fed via a limestone cave network. It is a fascinating area. For many years the area was regarded as sacred so the natural ecology was not affected by agriculture or settlement.

Perhaps the best way to enjoy the reserve is by canoe. This offers unparalleled and silent access to all the wildlife which inhabits the banks and waters of this unique water paradise. Visitors can also observe the exact confluence where the clear fresh flows encounter the detritus heavy sea water. There are small fishing villages along the banks of the canal and by canoe one can observe a way of life which has continued essentially unchanged, for hundreds of years.

Klong Thom Amphoe Lak Mueang
Klong Thom Amphoe Lak Mueang
A Lak Mueang or 'City Pillar Shrine' is a public shrine, usually in the shape of a pillar, which represents the tutelary diety of each province of Thailand. The pillar is housed in a structure, which often reflects the historical background of the province.

Each Shrine has great religious, social, and political importance, and are held in high regard by the local inhabitants. Most Thai provinces have an official Shrine, and some districts within a province have their own, smaller shrine and there are several different styles of lak mueang, however, they are normally located close to the centre of their town, usually in or near the governmental precinct. There is a belief that the height of the pillar was the height of the founder of the city, and its diameter a multiple of his fist size. Some shrines (at least the provincial shrines) contain historical records of the town, region, or the shrine itself.

This shrine is located in the grounds of the district administration offices, hard up against the road side wall. The shrine has a Thai style open design. There is a small prayer area at the front of the shrine. The pillar itself is rather short and wide.
