Krabi, Thailand

Phra Nang is either a princess or a fisherman’s wife, but fishermen in this area dedicated to her one of the caves on this beach, turning it into a shrine where wood carvings of penises are offered for a good catch. There must be over a hundred there now, the pile seems to grow when we first visited it in 2005 and again in 2006. Besides, that I love Phra Nang beach in Railay because it is secluded, small, and quiet … at least at that time … except for short moments when boatloads of tourists stop by to gawk.
