We extended our stay in Krabi and it was the best decision we made. Our tour took us to The Emerald Pool, Hot Springs and Tiger Caves.
The hot spring was AMAZING! The water was around 35 degrees Celsius which was quite hot so I only dipped my feet in- but guys it felt so good! My legs were covered in mosquito bites and the hot water made it feel so much better. My legs felt so soothed afterwards and it really helped with the itching- the redness also decreased.
Afterwards we went to the Emerald Pool which definitely lived up to its name. The waters were emerald and beautiful, the sun had warmed it up so going in for a swim felt amazing. The area was also very safe. We left our belongings near a tree and it was perfectly fine, probably because there were so many tourists everyone trusted each other. But we gave our phones and wallet to our tour guide, just to be extra safe!
After a relaxing swim we had lunch, gathered our energy and drove to the Tiger Caves. Unlike the name suggests, it’s not a cave or anything to do with tigers, it’s actually one of the most religious sites in Krabi. It was basically a Buddhist holy site and you climb 1267 steps to get to the top where you are greeted by the most beautiful statue of Buddha and other Hindu gods such as Ganesh. Unlike the Big Buddha in Phuket, the Tiger Caves felt really holy and it was so emotional reaching the top. It was definitely a spiritual journey and one I will cherish forever.
ALSO!! We fought off monkeys and dodged snakes!! I am petrified of snakes and when I saw a couple looking at a snake on the side of the mountain, I ran for my life up some of the steepest steps I’ve climbed in my life. There was no way in hell I was going to face a snake. I was so surprised at myself and the amount of energy I gained to avoid facing that creature.
Krabi was BEAUTIFUL and I would recommend everyone go and visit, Krabi I’ll see you soon!
