Krabi, Thailand is a popular tourist destination, and yet for all its limestone there are very few recorded cave entrances. Choosing a part of the region that had been overlooked for decades the team packed up their kit and their kids and headed off. Two weeks later and we'd found the 2nd longest cave in the region, pristine formations and a human skull artefact. Come along to find out how a serious expedition can be combined with a family holiday and taking kids caving.
