Deep Dark Fairy Water in Krabi - Thailand

in travel •  11 months ago

"It's Dark!"

The boat bobbed in the water, surrounded by darkness above and the black ink below. The pilot had turned off the lights, and we could only see by the stars and the light of the moon. It got quiet as the long tail's motor thudded to a halt. The boat drifted silently, like a ship in outer space.

Trish peered into the deep. "What monsters live down there?", her soft voice rang loud in the stillness. Her eyes sparkled, like stars, as she gazed into my eyes.

"Fire water!", the pilot said, "You dive, you see!"

No one in the boat moved. Nothing would make me step into that dark, cold water. Madness. Besides, I liked it on the boat with Trish, who had her hand on my lap. I could feel her warm breath tickle my neck as she pondered the darkness. I would stay on the boat with Trish.

"Wheeeeeee!" Trish squealed as she jumped into the water.

"SHIT!"

I ran and jumped in too, followed by everyone else. The cold water suddenly burst with brilliant blue light. Tiny sparks of plankton lit up and followed us as we swam, like sentient stars in a magical galaxy. The pilot called it fire water, and laughed at our amazement as we whooped and wowed, suddenly feeling safe as the water fairies danced around us, in luminous shadows of light.

Adventures in Krabi

Spend a few days in Krabi, in the south west of Thailand, before catching a ferry to the adjacent islands. Krabi has plenty to do, including boat rides that take you snorkelling, exploring coves, and night swimming, where bio-luminescent plankton surround you in a fantastic display of light.

The rides take you on a full day adventure, including lunch on different islands, night swimming, and fire eating, if you have the appetite for it.

The beaches on Krabi are not as white as some of the other islands

But Krabi makes up for it with some really cool bars and clubs, where me and Pete had plenty of debates over glasses of beer. Sometimes, the staff will join you too! The reggae bars have some really good live music and amazing staff.

All the travellers in Krabi are friendly and easy to talk to, and it's a great way to make new friends who are heading to the same island as you are. Some good places to check out include Koh Lanta, a nice idyllic island a few hours away, and Koh Phi Phi, a fun tourist trap with pure white beaches.

Krabi is definitely a great place to stop by for a couple of days. The food in the south is different from the north, but it's just as good, and if you're into rock climbing, Krabi has some good spots for you to try.

A lot of good things I heard from Thailand. One of this is all are cheap to be bought and another one is they have a great english accent that will you, lol.

I prefer Gina, that works in a street in Brandoa...she has no teeth, what may seem a defect....but for me it's a gift that opens a whole new world of possibilities.

Couldn't help myself LOL but the confidence when she knows she may not say words correctly is something.

I saw something very similar when I was Kayaking around an island at night in Thailand(koh wai pakarang) Trat province. I first was really freaked out to see hundreds of what I thought was fish eyes looking at me from beneath the water. Upon deeper inspection I discovered it was the glow from phosphorus.
P.S. If you like night photography stop by my page

Thailand is a most tourism area because there are many many beautiful place.i want to go there..

thanks you so much for your post..

Thailand is a country that I want to know, its immense natural beauty, and its gastronomy, wow, what a great trip you are having, I love the adventures and anecdotes that occur in them, that in the end are the memories that will always prevail. And what a great experience with bioluminescence in the water, is amazing @hitwill

when I have made some money, I will also travel to Thailand. I am concerned about the welfare of Thailand. You did not mention their relationship with God. There is a wealth transfer coming where ordinary people are going to get wealth from God. If those people have transform their country into such a haven, just imagine what it would be if they all recieve million of dollars from God.

Wow that's amazing photography and your story is awesome. You are very lucky man for traveling in thailand.I think you travel many interesting place in Thailand and aquired huge knowledge about Thailand.carry on always follow you

Read your post for the first time! loved it! Upvoted! and looking forward for your next post!

Some really time you spent there this is beautiful to see and great to see you after a very long time :D

I think I was too scared to jump in :) You know, giant squids and kraken hehehe

Excellent article. I learned a lot of interesting and cognitive. I'm screwed up with you, I'll be glad to reciprocal subscription))

It seems that Krabi it's a fun place. I would like to see that luminescent plankton

Always a pleasure to read and see something about thailand. I never heard about tiny blue light on water there but good to know.

It's a very nice journey. You are lucky to enjoy a wonderful place. Wellcome to you...

hi there!
i think Thailand it is a beautiful place, but darkness it sound very scary.
good luck!!!!
have a great day!!!!

This is a very good story. Tanks

I would suggest going by krabi as its extremely wonderful spots.

I had a short visit to Krabi and chose to take one day Phi-phi Island trip utilizing a speedboat. While choosing the bundle visit, I recommend you to looking at the cost. Try not to try to can anticipate the cost and you must be exceptionally cautious in choosing the visit supplier. On the booklet that they gave the cost to this bundle is 1,500 Bath ($42) for Adult however then utilize your dealing expertise. I could get 850 Bath ($24) for the excursion.

The outing was begun from 8.30 am – 4 pm. It was an exquisite outing as we went by a few spots, for example, Viking hollow, lovely Phi,phi Leh Lagoon. We didn't stop at Loh San Ma Bay for swimming however we stop at Maya Bay. It was amid high season so many individuals resulting in these present circumstances shoreline and I wager it would be extremely awesome on the off chance that you can visit this shoreline amid low season. The bundle incorporates a heavenly smorgasbord lunch in Phi Island. At that point you will have time for swimming before going by Bamboo Island, which has lovely white sand shoreline. I truly delighted in the excursion and would love to result in these present circumstances put again sooner rather than later and intending to investigate the entire places in this island.

It's very nice. Actually when I read the block, I was lost in an unknown country, thank you for share this beautiful speech.

It's good to read your article. Thanks for writing this article.

For a long time, you only posted now. How are you man? :)

i had the chance to visit Krabi during my honeymoon trip, i stayed at centara hotel in AoNang, to any one who ever want to go there, just go, you won't regret it, nice friendly people, amazing nature (be aware of the monkeys :D) but overall its AMAZING and UNFORGETTABLE trip

buen post amigo

Wow,
this is some excellent writing. The skills in this author is awesome. Okay, now that I got that out of the way. This is an excellent piece. I enjoyed reading it and I felt like I was there at certain points. I never been to Thailand but I may go one day even as a tourist. You know those big tour groups that only get to see like three sites because one it is so many of them and two someone always gets sick and everyone has to go back to the Hotel because of that one person, haha. Well, to be honest I was that one person in some cases.

I've had a similar experience about 6 months ago in the island of koh Samet. We decided to spend the week end there with some friends and as we were enjoying a cold beer under a beautiful night sky, a friend who was swimming came rushing towards us screaming to come and check the water. We did. It turned out to be one of the best experience of my life. The water lit up as we swam and it reminded me of a scene in the "life of pi" movie. A truly mind blowing moment.

Travel is a drug and a subject of interest ...... I visit every year at least two or three times a year.....I went to Thailand two years ago ... There are many tourist centers in Thailand......There are plenty of places to visit in Thailand ... .. I went to Thailand for a very short time. I liked Thiland in this short time. The most interesting thing is that there is plenty of food available here, and the ability to visit food can be found in between.....Seeing this post, I want to go back to Thailand and I will go to Thailand very soon .......So nice travelling post.....
