One of the caves visited in the kayak trip.

The most memorable part of the kayak trip has to be my dad fell into the water. He was trying to leave the kayak when the guide was distracted. In my opinion the fall wasn't life threatening as the water was very shallow and many helps were closeby. But it was a big shock to him. By now it is a funny family tale and my kids made a song out of it.

Inside one of the caves, we saw lots of skipper fish, and our guide caught a small crab with bright blue color.

Why the crab evolved to have such bright colour?

Another hotel picture taken with my phone camera. In the far background is the baby elephant kept at the hotel. The baby elephant is popular with kids and adults.

Beach fun. This kid was from Hong Kong. She seem to spend lots of the time with the maid. Where were the parents?

The patch of the beach in our hotel was very nice and soft. But we walked about 1 km to the side and the sands were very rough with lots of broken shells. Perhaps the hotel was built on the best patch of beach in Krabi.

One day we hired a boat to go to the Hong Island, and the boat just "land" on the hotel beach to pick us up and drop us off. Much nicer than taking a tour bus to the designated pier. Charter the private power boat for one day cost about 8000 baht and can fit about 8 people. And we have ants for suppliment in our lunch boxes.

The last breakfast in the hotel for this trip.

Thailand is so close and accessible to us that no wonder some people say Bangkok/Phuket is Hong Kong people's backyard. (OK, some say the same about places in the mainland China.)

And since it's very easy for us to travel to Thailand, I never have much of the urge to find out more about the Thai history, cultures or other stories. Almost all my holidays in Thailand were sort of like in a bubble.

On the shoulder of a giant.
Hey, maybe the bird is not scared of the 'giant'! Cheesy :] Smiley
