What our experts tell about this experience.
Chicken Island. No wonder they call it that. From afar it really does look like a chicken. Imagine seeing it from a side .. or above. You’d think it’s real! I loved it here. Why? Because the diving was just so cool! Was much fun. My friends and I were a bit creeped out but the sea snakes and the girls really enjoyed seeing the cute fish. They were saying the whole time after diving how adorable they were and how they wanted to take them home! Great diving, great fun.
Of the Krabi Islands what was some of my preferences are Pak Bia beach. Considered one of the number one destinations for snorkeling if you ask me. I came here with my family and we loved it. It’s like no other place that we’ve snorkeled. We also went to Jum Island. Found it very.. silent. Not dead just not crowded. And usually an island like that, would be. However it wasn’t. Was a tranquil visit!
I really love the water so this place was like a dream come true. My favorite spot, hands down was Pak Bia beach. The warm sun combined with the sea breeze and cool water is something that must be experienced! Phenomenal photos to show my friends, and I can't wait to come back.
