Kayaking in Thailand
Kayaking is a fun and adventurous activity on the water. You can move through the water with a small canoe with a double-bladed paddle.

Krabi is a beautiful town in Thailand with beautiful temples and interesting islands. This location is popular for its endless beauty and calm nature. You will see tourists come to this place to enjoy sightseeing the landscapes and kayaking. In Krabi, water sports experience is considered as the best experience. Seawater and streams surround the town. You can sail with the kayak amidst the remote island and thick jungle.
The best time to go for kayaking in Krabi is November to March because Krabi is a warm place in all year. But in November to march, the weather stays humid and comfortable. So, try to visit Krabi at that time. There are four places to kayak in the Krabi that no one should miss. The areas are:

The area near Hong Island and Ao Nang bay is considered as the best kayaking spot in Krabi. When you enter this bay, you will enjoy beautiful views of the islands nearby.

When you are in Krabi for kayaking, know about the tides. In high tides, you can’t go in the caves, and in low tides, the shallowness will block the kayak pass. Make sure to take a professional guide with you on tour.

You will also have time to explore the Hongs. The guide will paddle way through the water to let you enjoy the exotic view of aquatic life, birds, and plants.

The locals release a small floating boat with candles and orchids in this cave in the belief of bringing a good fortune. You can make this trip from sunrise to sunset easily.
If you want to enjoy the night trip to Phang Nga Bay, then I recommend to do it. Because kayaking under the night sky is will be a memorable moment for your whole life. But some tunnels and caves stay close during night time.
