glimpse: PARADISE CAVE | As vacationers piled up along Krabi’s beaches, the empty caves eyed them with sadness. Sitting all alone in the limestone, they overlooked the paradises below and allowed for vistas second to none; yet none of the people second guessed their beach day, none had a second to spare for the serene and shady grottos. The light at the end of the tunnel was Eden indeed, but nobody was willing to venture the darkness first and shouldering such secluded secrets so solemnly sowed solitary suffering.

neon-rice & snowy white

In a realm so contrasting that it juxtaposes the world's highest peaks with some of its most paradisiacal beaches, there's naturally much to see: gargantuan caves, neon green rice paddies, bizarre monoliths, brackish lagoons, blue lava and a volcano inside a volcano to name but a few. see more
