Laid inside the main ordination hall is the sacred 46-meter Reclining Buddha whose feet are beautifully inlaid with mother-of-pearl, carved with holy signs. Wat Pho is, among Thais, also known as “the nation’s first public university,” thanks to 1,360 marble inscriptions about medical, historical and liberal sciences places all around the temple where the people can read and learn anytime. Marble inscriptions about medical
sciences, anatomy and orthopedics are the origins of Wat Pho Thai traditional massage principles, which has made Wat Pho a world’s famous site. The traditional service, nowadays, is also available at the nearby pavilion. In 2008, Wat Pho was listed

Massage skills have been honed and cultivated at Wat Pho for centuries so you are in really good hands. Wat Pho also run a school, so if you enjoy the treatment you could even take a new skill home! We recommend that you book your massage before you look around the temple as after midday it can get busy. A massage in the air-conditioning here is a welcome treat after visiting the temples. A recent refurbishment has added floor to ceiling windows that offer a great view of the glittering buildings, but if the sun is out they will close the thick blinds and you can forget about the bustle of Bangkok. An hour Thai massage is 420 baht, but the price is worth it to experience your own slice of history. Wat Pho offers a massage lesson for tourist as well.

An Evening in Old Phuket Town

Phuket was one of the major Peranakan Chinese cultural centrals, along with Singapore, Malacca and Penang, thanks to the dramatic growing of tin mining business in early 19th century, luring in a large number of Chinese merchants from the China mainland. It was led to the constructions of Sino-Portuguese mansions and shop houses in the Phuket town. These buildings were the residence of tin mine tycoons, and their descendants, featuring unique Peranakan architectural styles. Each shop house looks narrow from the front but its space spans as long as ten meters or more to the back, making there’s a vast space to accommodate a lot of people. Walk along the roads of Dibuk, Phang-Nga, Yaowarat, Thalang and Krabi to admire the beauty of crafted facade of the remaining shop houses. Some of them are now open as a boutique hotel you can also try lodging.

Day 14

Diving in the Deep Blue Sea

Koh He 'Coral Island'

Off the southern shore of Panwa Cape lies the beautiful island famous for its white powdery beach and unspoiled coral reefs, thus it’s also named Coral Island. Koh He is ideal for swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving as well as choices of water sports all year round thanks to its location with least effect from monsoon. Located not far from the main island Koh He is a popular one-day tour from Phuket you can easily take a boat from Chalong Bay, which takes only half an hour.

Koh Mai Ton

Koh Mai Ton is the dreamed island of honeymoon couples, being the private place of beautiful nature and perfect facilities. The clean white beach slopping little by little to the
sea gives good area for swimming. The coral reefs of 1 km lies at the east of the island ahead of the beach while another part of the island has only stones and rocks facing the
strong wind and waves. All over the island are fertile forests offering shady delightful surroundings to Koh Mai Ton for a long time. Ko Mai Ton is a private island close to Phuket, it's about 15 minutes away by speedboat. To come here is to feel the real privacy at the white beach, the area of abundant coral reefs and many activities. Or else, just rest comfortably on the beach seats listening to the sound of wind and waves.

Phuket Romantic Cuisine

Most restaurants on Phuket serve a variety of cuisines, including Thai and international foods. Most guesthouse and resorts have restaurants that serve both, while in the more popular beaches, such as Patong, there are restaurants specializing in various international cuisines, such as Italian and German. Beachside, seafood barbeque restaurants are also common, as dining on fresh seafood is certainly a Phuket attraction. Thanks to the diversity of visitors to Phuket and the variety of restaurants established to cater to them, tourists are hardly starved for choice when dining on Phuket.

Krabi (days 15 – 17)

Day 15

Island Hopping in Krabi

Railay/Phranang Bay

Among its world renowned spots, one not to be missed is Railay/Phranang Bay that always keep visitors awe-stricken with its indisputable postcard-perfect beauty. Railay has risen from peaceful fishing village to a world-class tourist destination, thanks to its imposing limestone cliffs that shoot out of the crystal blue waters to tower over the white sandy beaches. Railay actually covers three beaches, each with its own distinctive character. Railay West is the longest, featuring white sand and shallow water. Though Railay West is ideal for sunbathing, do be warned that the southern-end is pretty rocky. Being also the most popular, you’ll find a collection of resorts, restaurants and beach bars serving visitors. Further north is Ton Sai Bay, a good spot for rock climbing and affordable rooms. Railay West, and Ton Sai, are at the most beautiful at sunset, when those steep cliffs are silhouetted against the sky. Opposite Railay West is Railay East, which is actually really just part of a bigger mangrove swamp. Though it’s not great for swimming, it’s the best place to catch a beautiful sunrise. Sitting between Railay West and East is Phranang Beach, named after the cave containing a sacred Buddha image that can be found on this beach. A lot smaller than Railay West and East, Phranang is the best beach for swimming, with clean, white powdery sand and crystal clear, shallow water.

Ko Phi Phi

For the past years. Ko Phi Phi have been making a name for themselves among international tourists, even-before its film debut in Leonardo Di Caprio’s “The Beach” which came out in 2000. Crystal clear water, mysterious towering cliffs and baby-powder beaches, perfectly arranged by Mather Nature, are the trails that define the vicinity’s
heart-shopping sceneries. Though accommodations are available only on Ko Phi Phi Done-the largest of cluster, day trip from Phuket and Krabi to witness the beauty of the
area is very popular and a must for couples. Highlights include Ao Maya (the location of “The Beach” movie), Ao Phi Leh, Phi Phi Lay and Phi Phi Don.

Lanta Yai and Lanta Noi

South of Phi Phi lies a couple of smaller island, Lanta Yai and Lanta Noi. Lanta Yai is an idyllic destination that is neither too isolated nor crowded. In fact, it is the sort of place for a laidback honeymoon where you can expect some cute restaurants and friendly beach bar scenes rather than the full-scale nightlife of Patong.

Day 16

The Emerald Pool (Sra Morakot)

Hot Spring Waterfall (Namtok Ron Khlong Thom)

Usually with a tour the Hot Springs are seen at the same time as the Emerald Pool as they are not too far apart. Located in the jungle they are nature's own hot-tub jacuzzis where the water here comes from thermal springs, originating deep underground in volcanic chambers. Natural hollowed out "bathtubs" are filled to the brim with fresh running spring water at a pleasant 35-42C. After a soak, take a refreshing dip in the cool river below. A hit for all the family with the children enjoying a change from bathing in the sea and pool and others that wish to just soak away their aches and pains!

Krabi Town Market

Although Ao Nang also has markets it is well worth a visit to the weekend "walking street" market in Krabi Town. It is only on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights and for fun and variety with a stage show of local talent provided.

Day 17

The Tiger Cave Temple

The Tiger Cave Temple (Wat Tum Suea)

Aptly named because of the rock outgrowth nearby resembles a tiger's claw, is considered by the Krabi Buddhists to be one of the most sacred sites in the province and well worth a visit. Some 250 monks and nuns live in the temple compounds at the moment. The staircases up to the temple are rather challenging however the view from the top, combined with the lovely Buddha statuary, makes the summit of the hill an unforgettably beautiful place.

Spa and Wellness

Many like to unwind on holiday by experiencing blissful treatments and Krabi offers some of the best spas in Thailand whether it be under a canopy on the beach or in a 5-star luxury resort you will certainly find something to suit your need.
