Travel one of the provinces of Thailand
• Travel on one of the provinces of Thailand
Krabi - one of the 77 provinces of Thailand and is located in the south of the country on the shores of the Andaman Sea.
"For me, the nature of Krabi - a culmination of rebellion, madness manifesto. The local rock and jungle calmly grow through all possible limits. Despite, in spite of everything. At the sight of these chaotic forms and feverish lines does not arise any association with the pastoral quiet, imbued with harmony and evokes thoughts of retirement. Krabi - is angular, powerful and unrestrained youth, it is a swarm of crazy ideas and overflowing energy.
I do not know what dreams seen by Gaudi, but I've got some suspicions ... "
At the pier in Krabi town.
From Krabi town to the peninsula Reilly twenty minutes by longtail boat. We landed on the Reiley East at low tide, so we had to walk a hundred meters of rocky bottom knee-deep in troubled waters, trying not to be screwed - the boat just could not get close to the shore. Directly with backpacks, we went to Reiley West, in time to watch the sunset.
I looked at the setting sun on the golden water, and the people around and trying to figure out where we were. Waiters carried beach restaurants on the sand bright pillows, mats and torches, vacationers strolled along the beach, taking pictures, playing badminton or just sitting at the water's edge. We were in no hurry, and went in search of shelter when it was already dark.
We are not in a hurry and on the other days. We listened to the songs of gibbons in the morning (they were to us instead of the alarm) and the deafening chorus of fat frogs in the evenings, strolling along the paths, trodden among rocks and dense vegetation, talking about that, about this with people at other tables in the cafe. We watched flocks of macaques and langurs and spectacle saw a mangy squirrels tails. In the evenings, antikomarinym smelling spray, it is important we philosophized on the veranda of our bungalow.
The main trouble Peninsula Reilly in Krabi - too many people. This problem is not because they want to silence, to be alone with nature, etc. The fact that Reilly is compact and is cut off from the mainland around the corner -.. A single message with the mainland carried boats, respectively, garbage disposal also on boats and quite not as often as needed. Any debris that vacationers left on the beach, cleaners sweep or in one of the containers, which are regularly "restoring order" macaque, if any, in the next bush, which, maybe, with some frequency is still clean, otherwise there would have been quite a dump. Nevertheless, a look now and then stumbles upon installation, "the invasion of plastic bags and foam boxes." This contrast between the incredible nature and impartial evidence of human presence in her sorrow.
Past the colorful garbage dumps, we had to take place on a regular basis. There's almost always feasting macaque, and the smell was such that if I, for example, overheated in the sun, fainted, we would not run for noshatyrem and drag me to the landfill.
I suspect that there is a problem in Raleigh to compliance and other sanitary standards. The fact that we were poisoned here, and not in any other place, I would have thought only "luck" if it had not heard from different people that "everything is poisoned."
We had a fun conversation with a nice pair of Russian climbers. They asked us how much we have days in Krabi, and when we said that for three days, there was the question: "Have you already suffered from" In our bewilderment "yes no", explained to us: "Here on the third or fourth day all fall down with fever and diarrhea for a day or two. Our friends were so, we, too, had been ill. " The most offensive, but here there are no funky eateries, only uyutnenko tourist restaurants with cushions, tablecloth, candles and so on. D.
I do not remember the names of all the beaches of the peninsula Reilly, but they are all close to each other and are surrounded by cliffs. On some of them you can swim only in the tide, and at low tide the water formed in situ stone apocalyptic landscapes. The best beach for swimming - Railey West, but still in my fastidious taste of the water is clear enough, too many boats and not enough space.
But here a great space for kayaking! To admire the breathtaking views, hidden from view, while you're on the beach, do not need long to row - enough to wrap over the cliff ... and you get and if in another world. Photos with the kayak I do not have, because it was scary for the camera, so take my word: boulders sticking out of the water and forming narrow corridors, secluded coves, where the top of the low tide exposed a little sand, hanging over the head of the gigantic walls, flecked with orange and black pattern, - the spectacle, breathtaking.
In addition to Reilly macaques and gibbons live spectacled langurs. They behave more decently than macaques at dumps sharyatsya not, people do not stick. A face expression them is, if they are a little crazy.
As we strolled along Railey East, we always had fun seeing the tractor into the sea. Tractor that need to be taken with boats luggage and people, delivered in large decent hotels.
Spectacle langurs only looks cutie-ocharovashka. His teeth are also available.
The road to the lookout almost drove me mad. Protruding sharp stones, slippery sticky mud, the need to climb, not really knowing what to keep and where to put the foot. And no insurance. Several times I thought then, and I end)). But this trail (although I doubt that it can be called a path) fantastically picturesque.
First there was the climb, then descent, and of a bright hot afternoon, we hit the cool damp dusk, lurking in the gorge.
