Phi Phi Islands Adventure Day Trip with Seaview Lunch

551 reviews
Make the most of limited time in Thailand on a speedboat tour of the Phi Phi islands from Phuket. Traveling by speedboat means you spend less time at sea and more time exploring the white sands and crystal waters of the islands, home to the bay made famous by "The Beach." Enjoy free time to snorkel, sunbathe, and swim, and relish the convenience of hotel pickup and drop-off in Phuket.

Khao Khanap Nam is one of the most famous landmarks and a symbol of Krabi and also one of the most photographed spots of the city, Khao Khanap Nam are two scenic rock formations on the Krabi River, they are acting as a gateway for the city. These two mountains are roughly 100 meters tall, sitting on both banks of "Maenam Krabi". Khao Khanap Nam has several magnificent storied caves filled with stalactites. As a theory for the caves: there were people settling down in the area but they were cut off by a flood and finally they vanished. The Krabi River "Maenam Krabi" itself originates at Phanom mountains (north of Krabi town), for sailing across Krabi River and visiting Khao Khanap Nam caves and a Muslim village and some Island-like restaurants, you can hire a private boat from "Chao Fa" pier for about 450 Bht. After arriving to the caves, you will see remarkable caves with some stairs for going up and down. The caves ambience are interesting and really worth a visit. Visiting the caves and sailing across the Krabi River near the sunset, can make your pleasure Double!

Our first day at Krabi and we visit the landmark of Krabi province. The tour takes about 4 hours. I take a guided tour from Mr Ann (FB page: Krabi Mr.Ann Trip & Tours Thailand. A very humble & friendly person. He gave us a reasonable price for a 4 hours tours. 1) 1stly we visit the monkey place that situated at near the mangrove jungle to feed them. After an hour of feeding & photography we go to the cave that called Khao Khanap Nam. 2) At there we spent about 1hours & half to explore. Many artifact can be found inside the cave. There is also a discovery of giant skeleton. The cave also a hiding places for Japanese army during the WW2. It was a great tour from Mr Ann. He explained everything's that happen there. 3) After that Mr Ann give us tour around the mangroves. Many birds species can be spotted there, luckily I spotted a white bellied sea eagle roaming above us. 4) Lastly, we were brought to the fish farm that owned by local Muslim there. We ate lunch there & after that we were brought back to our hotel at Ao Nang beach for check in. We all satisfied with our tour & recommended all to give a try. It's worth a visit.

Pre historic caves. A very popular place to visit in Krabi is Khao Khanap Nam, a couple of raged hills, the natural gateway to Krabi, stretching 100m out of the water. lnside Khao Khanap Nam are several magnificent caves with impressive clusters of stalactites and stalagmites. The only way to get there is by boat from the Chao Fah Bridge in Krabi.

I visited Khao Khanap Nam weekday late morning (cloudy haha)! Walked to Chaofah Pier and bargained a songtaew (longtail boat) service. They opened price between 500-800 THB/hour based on different songtaew owners I asked. Managed to bargain one for 450 THB an hour -then heard another tourist able to lease a different songtaew for 350 THB an hour lol! ***there is no need to explore Mangrove as its visible on your journey to the cave, songtaew just take a loop to the far back of the Landmark in slow speed which I felt its a waste of time and drop you off at cave jetty. So tell your songtaew head directly to the caves instead! (Unless you want the mangrove trip haha)*** At jetty, songtaew will port and wait for you. I went in alone (solo traveler) -make sure you come back to your songtaew before your time ends or they will charge you an extra hour! ***I was lucky to see a family of monkeys not far from the jetty & I quickly kept everything into my backpack! So beware of your belongings!!!*** At 100 metres you'll see a grilled wooden hut (because of monkeys lol), a lady inside a fee of 30 THB for each person. Walked and wandered outside about 30 minutes taking pictures, reading article boards available. All before entering any caves! SO PLAN YOUR TIME WISELY! - I saw a total of 3 access entrances assuming here has 3 caves in total. One with man made flight of stairs (far end), another with wooden ladder (in middle) & the first one you will see is a "Small Bat Cave" entrance (in less than 20 steps after paying your fee, you should be able to smell GUANO hahahaha)! I first went to the far end cave up the flight of stairs, look around you as you go up, plenty of good shots you can take. Once reached, the cave is rather huge inside. Lots of History Boards (in blue) telling you what was on displayed beside or behind each respective boards. From skeletons (Primate & animal bones), relics, stone artifacts, cave wall painting to Japanese Occupation history! At the far end of this cave, there was an opening with ROPE tied securely. I climbed up and its the back of Khao Khanap Nam landmark. I took a short clip up there and remember to LOOK UP the outer & higher limestone wall. There are 2 visible white-ish things sticking out of the limestone but I'm unsure what were they. I took some pictures too. ***Climbing up is pretty easy for me, medium build body Asian man who regulars gym weekly (no rock climbing experience though) BUT going down haha.... REMEMBER TO FIND YOUR FOOTING YA!*** Just this cave, I spent almost an hour! haha... The middle cave with wooden ladder, it has some lining of fence-thingy but accessible still. I didn't go up as my respect for the fence-meaning there at the bottom. Then on my way back to the jetty, I was standing at the Small Bat Cave and couldn't take the smell + I have sensitive skin (allergic to pigeon fur & droppings). So I skipped that too. Below are some pictures I took. Hope this could be use as a guide to those interested; what to expect, the time you need if you are like me (so much into history & thrill/excitement haha). Happy exploring peeps!
