I’m very exited to be going back to Krabi again. This will be my second trip this year. I will be going to take pictures at the “6th Krabi Rock and Fire International Contest” which is taking place from 21 to 23 April 2014, at Railay Beach and Tonsai Bay, Mueang district. This event is the biggest rock climbing competition in Thailand. At Railay Beach, there are more than 600 limestone rock climbs. Once climbers have scaled the heights, they can enjoy breathtaking panoramic views of the deep blue Andaman Sea. As I will be taking my drone with me, I will be able to share some of these fantastic views with you. Cannot wait to do some flying there.
For this year’s “Rock and Fire International Contest”, they are expecting more than 30 teams of adventurous tourists from the world over to join the climbing. As usual, the competition offers three types of climbing event: Lead Climbing Mountain and Deep Water Soloing and the Freestyle Fire Contest. All of the events take place at the famous Railay Beach. Krabi is easily reached by air, road or sea. Krabi International Airport now serves more than 20 domestic flights daily as well as around 15-20 scheduled and chartered flights per day. Krabi currently has more than 18,000 hotel rooms; with 1,280 rooms at Railay Beach and Tonsai Bay and another 6,000 rooms located at Ao Nang Beach. The rest of the province accounts for the other rooms with 2,300 on Ko Phi Phi, 3,000 rooms on Ko Lanta, and a further 1,350 rooms at Khlong Muang Beach.
