Koh Poda Island

Krabi, Thailand

An alien-like limestone formation beckons from the rugged, rock climber’s haven Railay, on the coast of Thailand. Koh Poda Island’s natural wonder seems to entreat you to snorkel or dive into the surrounding emerald green waters or simply lie on the pristine half-mile stretch of sand. Or maybe it just wants you to take its picture, framed by a colorful row of long-tail boats.
