Stop At: Hongs of Phang Nga

A "hong" – the Thai word for “room” – is actually a collapsed cave systems in the interior of each island in Phang Nga Bay, only accessed by tough, purpose-designed inflatable canoes through sea caves at low tide. Open to the sky and filled with jungle flora and fauna, the hongs conceal a unique eco-system with monkeys, birds, fish and complete quiet, except for the twittering of birds. Local operators have so far gained access to dozens of hongs between Phang Nga and Krabi to the south, which you can visit and enjoy on a Phuket kayaking trip. Each hong tends to have its own distinct character, and it's easy to spend days, even a week, visiting island after island.

Duration: 45 minutes

Stop At: Koh Panak Cave

Loy Krathong Day is one of the most popular festivals of Thailand celebrated annually on the Full-Moon Day of the Twelfth Lunar Month. It takes place at a time when the weather is fine as the rainy season is over and there is a high water level all over the country. The word “Loy” means “to float”, and “Krathong” means lotus-shaped vessel made of banana leaves. Loy Krathong is, therefore the floating of an illuminated leaf bowl. But nowadays some krathongs are made of coloured paper. A krathong usually contains a candle, three joss sticks, some flowers and coins. The history of Loy Krathong Festival is slightly obscure. First, it is to ask for apology from the water goddess for having used and sometimes made rivers and canals dirty. Second, it is to offer flowers, candles and joss sticks as a tribute to the footprint of Lord Buddha on the sandy beach of the Nammatha River in India. Third, it is to show gratitude to the Phra Mae Kong Ka or Mother of Water. Fourth, it is to wash away the previous year’s misfortunes.
