Krabi Konnect

Next we take a look at Krabi Konnect, an activity company located in Ko Phi Phi Don, Thailand. Most of the activities are conducted in Maya Bay. Maya Bay is a beach that is surrounded by 100-meter high cliffs on three sides. What used to be a peaceful secluded area is now often packed by loads of tourists trying to enjoy the beauty of the bay. The more popular it gets the harder it is to reach and for guests to fully enjoy it. You can't even camp at Maya Bay anymore. One of the last few ways for tourists to fully enjoy Maya Bay is to join Krabi Konnect one of the tours. They have a Plankton Sunset Cruise and a Sleep Aboard tour that allows guest to see Maya Bay without the crowds.

The Plankton tour runs from December to March on every other days. The tour includes snorkeling gear, fresh fruit, drinking water and dinner on the boat. Guests have the opportunity to snorkel the amazing bioluminescent plankton. Guests can also choose to do the Sleep Aboard tour. The boat leaves at 3pm and returns the next day at 10 in the morning. swimming, kayaking and snorkeling is all included in this rendezvous. Krabi Konnect is dedicated to sustainable tourism as well, they ask all of their guests to pitch in and lend a hand to help keep the beautiful beach clean. “By treating nature with respect, we can all share in its wondrous beauty. To this end, our aim is to always leave the island cleaner than when we arrived.”


Vespa Valley

Next we head to Kathmandu with Vespa Valley. Thy provide guided tours on the back of Vespas throughout the Kathmandu Valley hence the name Vespa Valley. Vespa Valley is run by 5 locals, so they know all the exciting spots to take tourists. Kathmandu is the largest city and capital of Nepal. Though most tours take place in Kathmandu, the team at Vespa Valley chauffeurs guests all over Nepal on the Vespas. All tours are chauffeured, meaning there is a driver who is also serving as the tour guide and space on the back for the guests to just sit back and relax. The vespas allow for their guests to be right in the action of the ever busy Nepal. The can interact with locals as well as the environment from a more personal level.

Tours include a Jazz After Dark. It is an afternoon tour on the Vespas. Guests are driven through vibrant bazaars, stip from some tea and Durbar Square, and all of Kathmandu's great sightseeing spots while the sun is setting. The Momo Mania is a sweet tooth’s paradise. Guest climb aboard vintage vespas as they travel through the bustling streets looking for and tasting momos. For a traditional food tour guests can book the Nepali Food Safari They take guests on a progressive tour of street stalls, local shops and restaurants, tasting along the way. All the food is particular that region and guests get to meet the owners of these local establishments, giving them the chance to fully dive into the culture and learning all the history of the food.
