A quest for Laputa with Compass Stone #2

A key virtue of Compass Stone is that it can navigate you with directions in remote locations where you can't reach a mobile network. Want to see what kind of adventure you can enjoy? Check out our second movie!

My destination was the beautiful and mysterious Phraya Nakhon cave in Thailand. Traveling by bus, plane, car and taxi, I made the journey from Tokyo to Bankok and then on to Hua Hin Town, near where the caves are located. That was where my adventure really began.

The easiest way to the caves was to take a boat around the headland, but because of dangerous conditions at sea, I had to take a trek by foot through the forested mountains to the cave entrance. As I entered the hills, my phone quickly lost its connection, but Compass Stone’s navigation will continue to work even when cut off from a network.

Despite the rough conditions at sea, an atmosphere of quiet tranquility descended as soon as I entered the caves, making my way through the chambers full of strange, twisted rock formations and eventually coming to the famous Kuha Karuhas pavilion, illuminated in a beam of sunlight from above.
