Krabi Trip with love 2013 Part I

Sawadee ka ~
Because of my post tittle, let me great you all with Thai language XD

Let's start my story here.

My boy planned to bring me to holiday during my sembreak,
he is craving for a holiday trip with me always,
and I like the way we being together like this,
It is sweet to me and it is a good thing to let us gain knowledge together in different country.

So in July that time, he booked Krabi air ticket from Air Asia
and we departed on first of October.
The time passed very fast from July to October.
My exam passed and my sembreak started.
All the things going according to plan,
Hotel booked and every single details of activities in Krabi had surveyed.

Finally , the day reached, we are going to KRABI !

A picture for memorable in LCCT Airport.

We departed at 1.35pm from Malaysia.

A view took from a plane.

It just need 1 hour to reach Krabi

Took picture at Krabi Airport

The Airport in Krabi is very small and the counters for immigration process is very few.
end up we spent a lot of time at there queuing up to wait for immigration process.

When we finished the procedure, took our luggage,
many thailand people will come towards you and offer you the transportation to Aonang,
(Ao Nang is the place that located in Krabi which is near to the beach)

Most of the tourists came here will book a hotel from Aonang
because every single distance in Aonang, 
you will definitely find a nice hotel with swimming pool to stay.
We took bus which is 150baht per person ,
the bus driver will ask each of  us where we stayed,
and he will fetch you to your hotel doorstep.

If you took a cab, it will cost you around 600baht.

The bus look clean and nice.

My boy is so caring !
He prepared a lunch box from Malaysia to Krabi !
He knew we will hungry after we reached Krabi.
So our lunch for the first day in Krabi is Sandwiches !
So yummy and nice !

Nothing to do inside the bus,
we just keep eating our sandwiches and self-captured.

Around 30 minutes, we reached Aonang ,
the bus stopped at every hotel that the tourists inside the bus stayed.

and we finally reached our hotel too.
Aonang Buri Resort

The staffs are friendly and the environment in this hotel is so peace and nice.
The hotel we booked are opposite to the Aonang beach,
which we just walk across the road and we reach the beach already,
but we never visit the beach because the beach is not as nice as those islands one.

Back to our hotel story,
the staff will help you to carry the luggage and sent to your room.
So , taaa daaaa
Our hotel room ! Look nice and romantic LOL

The bathroom is as shown in the picture before we booked.
look clean and tidy,
just I don't like there just provide the bathtub only ,
I like to bath with those shower spray XD
but overall is okay ,
There have television, refrigerator, balcony and coffee area. 

Pool view from my room balcony. Nice view !
Before we start our dolphin swimming session , we rent a bike from hotel
which is 250 baht per day ,
I know there is more cheaper bike to rent outside the hotel but 
it is quite far to walk to the place to rent and it cost 200 baht ,
nothing much difference with it if we took duk duk to rent a bike also ,
same price or even more expensive than that.

My boy fetched me and this was my first time fetched by him with scooter.
We stopped at passed by stalls and had our snacks.

Having Lemon Juice with Famous Pancake in Krabi ,
The pancake is delicious and is like roti canai in Malaysia ,'
just you can add egg, cheeze, banana, chocolate and others in it.

We surveyed many tour package shops and
we bought the package to islands on first day.
I will tell you the package details at below.

Back to our hotel after we make a great deal with the dealers about the tour package.

Now , is time to SWIM !

Not very enjoy in first day swimming session 
because of too long did not swim already ,
and I was phobia with water on the first day because almost 1 year never practice to swim.
At night, we rode to food market there to choose our dinner place,
there is a row of restaurants for us to choose
the tourists will look at the menu one by one before decided.

We choose one of it which provided vegetarian food 
but end up both of us ate with a lot of groan due to the food is not nice as we expected.
At night , all the shops are welcoming us and 
don't forget to shop at there ,
the things and massage there are cheap
We had our massage with 200baht for 1 hour each person , cheap !

The next day , we woke up early because we started our tour on second day !
Had my breakfast in my hotel ,
The breakfast they provided is delicious and nice but not much choices, 
unlike others hotel just provide bread, cereal ...

My boy , seemed like satisfied with his breakfast too.

At 830am sharp , we have to wait at the lobby ,
many tourists will wait at the lobby also but the tour company are different with each other.
The tour company we choose are under "Let's go" Tour company.
We paid 900 baht for the whole day tour which until 4pm. 
The tour included :

Monkey Bay
Lohsamah Bay
Pileh Bay
Maya Bay (Phi Phi Ley )
Viking Cave
Phi Phi Don
Bamboo Island
Hin Klang

We went to these places by speedboat,
because of the places are far,
speedboat is a must if not the time wasted on the boat are too much.

First Island we stopped by is BAMBOO ISLAND
The sand is white in color and the sea color is nice and salty too !

We are the first boat to reach there ,
so we took a picture hurriedly before this beach is full of people. 

We stayed at Bamboo island around 50 minutes
which already told by tour guide.
I love the sea so much !

Look at this picture below ,
the tourists existed after few minutes. 

Next , Maya Bay also one of our loved !
But the only thing is our feet were so pain when we stand inside the sea !
There is too many rocks and death corals left beneath the sea bottom ,
end up we shouted for pain for the whole journey we stepped inside the sea !

Maya Bay is famous because of the Hollywood movie shot at here before
which called " The Beach" 
That's why it get famous after all.

I was too enjoy swimming with the nature made sea with the sunshine.

Then , we stopped by Viking cave to take photo and listen to our tour guide about Viking Cave story.

Our tour guide , in blue color shirt ,
he is naughty but responsible , haha

Monkey Bay
We just see from our boat because too many monkeys and boat at there.

Then is time to lunch !
I never feel hungry at all , maybe because of the full breakfast at hotel just now.
Somemore, we request for vegetarian ,
the food they provide for us is not delicious at all ><

We had our dinner at Phi Phi Don
Tour guide request us to be like this and he help us to take picture.

Monkey Bay view

Viking Cave view

Monkey Bay 

Had snorkeling at last session of the day
We stopped at middle of the sea which called Hin Klang
and we jumped into the sea and start our explorer

What I want to say is ,
All corals are dead , we just can see fish touching by your face , your body ..
because the fishes are a lot !
Sea Urchin with poisonous sting a lot too !
We have to be careful every time we nearby them. 
I was so scared when I saw the sea urchin ><

4pm , the tour will sent us back to hotel one by one too.

Although the corals are dead,
but when you saw those beautiful sea water color and fishes ,
your heart beat jumped fast ,
this is god made nature.

Appreciate our nature , to our next generation.

Stay tuned for Part 2
