Krabi Day 3 n: Exploring Phranang Beach + Aonang Orkid Hotel


Day 3 at Railay Beach
Having peace and calm sleep at the night since the hotel is good and the whole Railay is soooo quiet at night that you would imagine like you are in the jungle alone that kind of feeling, looking outside the balcony is so dark that you just can see the black shadows of the tree shape. 

The next morning dressing in bikini again for our sea explore !

Early in the morning, have our breakfast at our own hotel restaurant as we have free breakfast included in the hotel package, the breakfast buffet is full of choices but for vegetarian main course only available for 2 choices, cheese baked mashed potatoes and mixed vegetables. But there are cereals, with milk and dessert side too, Besides, there is a chef standing stanby at a counter and cook the eggs which you wish to order like pouched egg, omelette or fried egg, 

Having breakfast facing the sea is symbolizing such a wonderful morning yea. 

After breakfast. heading to the West Railay again to have our sea activities by our own. There is not much people at the sea in the morning, I guessed everyone still having sweet dream in the hotel since Railay beach is so quiet and peaceful place. 

We have start our activity which is Canoeing ! Actually I am afraid of canoeing especially I imagine that the canoe capsize or sink in the middle of the sea, then how I m going to swim back to the shore and how long Im gonna swim ? LOL 
The rental of canoe is count by hour, 1 hour cost 200 BAHT , We thought we might need 1 hour only but at last we were wrong. 

Okay , let's start canoeing , beautiful sea. 



We never thought of met the another beach and we never thought of getting down from the canoe at the new beach we explore. Maybe it was too early, no people was at the beach that time. The beach is quite nice and clean. But after few minutes, we were wrong, many boats and tourists came and play at here, The beach became crowded in a sudden. 

Before the tourists came to this side, we snap pictures immediately to get this one people at the beach story. LOL



After that we only realized the beach we canoe to reach here is Phranang Cave which is quite famous in rock climbing, princess cave and etc,  I was so lucky to choose to canoe at Railay Beach to find out this wonderful beach. 



I love to soak in the warm sea water 



That's what I mentioned : tourists everywhere .

Rock Climbing activities 

Princess Cave God behind me if you can see the Orange color there  


Okay, after playing at the beach , is time to go back as we have exceed one hour already, we have to pay more since we use the canoe for more than 1 hour already, nevermind, just let it be. Live young at that moment. 

Canoe back to Railay 


Finally back to Railay, we have to pay extra 100baht for exceeding half an hour for the rental of canoe

Back to Railay to continue have fun in the sea. 





When we headed back to our hotel for preparing checking out, we found out the East Railay high tide sea water had beat up to the walkway, so special to me, LOL because we can't expect the sea water can reach up to the walkway one.


Everyone of us have to walk with bare foot or else it is hard to walk with slipper in water one. 



Yeah, is time to check out and say goodbye to this hotel , definitely will come again at here if I back to Krabi. hehe

After check out, have our lunch at the same place again 

We ordered Pad Thai wrap in egg.100 baht 

Mango Shake 60 baht
Such a wonderful match with the sea !

The last meal we have at Railay beach before we leave 



By the way, I want to emphasize about How to back to Aonang from Railay Beach, this is because I want to warn to everyone that remember do buy RETURN boat tickets when you want to go Railay Beach because you know what ? When we going to buy boat ticket back to Aonang at Railay Boat ticket counter, they don't receive your money first, they say have to wait 8 passengers only will start the boat, then while we keep waiting for the next few people to join us, the thailand people keep persuade us to pay more so we can start the boat immediately, which means pay for the 8 passengers fee which is 800baht by few of us, each person almost going to pay 160baht. When the next 3 persons reached which had reach 8 passengers, the Thailand people go and ask them whether they want to start the boat now by paying for 8 passengers, if the 3 person say YES, we have to wait again for the next three person to come, so my Mr straight away told the Thai people can start boat now since 8 passengers reached, the Thai people straight away not happy with us since they wanna persuade the 3 person to pay 800 baht, but we interrupt them so they not happy with us.   LOL  
SO DO REMEMBER TAKE NOTE ON BOAT TICKET ISSUE, their tactics to earn more


Okay, back to Aonang, Mr rent a bike again and we check in our last hotel at Aonang
A 4 star rated hotel : Orkid Hotel
I would not recommend for this hotel as their service is super duper worst !





There is no bathtub stopper for the bathtub, we have to call the hotel staff to bring for us , they should make sure the stopper should be there when they make up the room ! Besides, the pool is big enough but not clean , too many algae at the pool wall. At night, I can't sleep well because of the sound transmit easily from the next door. When we request for late check out for 20 minutes, they straight answer us have to charge money, we feel so pissed off by their rudeness, don't ever come again for this and definitely not worth for 4 star rated since the service, cleanliness and staff is not fulfilled in 4 star rated requirement. 


At night, we hunt for dinner which is facing the sea, we keep check the menu of each restaurant one by one but overall the food cost much higher since it is facing the sea, but finally we found a restaurant which is price friendly, food delicious and facing the sea ! We chose this : LUNA RESTAURANT RIM LAY 

I think we attracted by this restaurant not only the price cheaper, but there is a list of vegetarian menu for us to choose, thats why we feel comfortable more. 


No doubt, the sea having green light is symbolizing the sea is safe, no Tsunami paranormal happen. 
You can check out the green light at the picture below. behind us is the sea and with the green lights. 

When the rice was served to us, I was like WOW surprisingly ! Such a cute dinner I have that night. awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww Teddy Bear Rice.

Mushroom omelette 

Green curry vegetable , taste so awesome and the curry is super heavy , so nice !

Tomyam without Red , I like this more than red because of this will be more sour and appetizing us always, they were success in making this tomyam soup be my best soup ever in Krabi. 


After dinner, came to the street stall to queue for the only stall which selling coconut ice cream ! It is so hard to find coconut ice cream at Aonang. LOL 


At last I can't eat the ice cream because of they sell finish already, so I came back to them on the next day of noon before I depart my flight. 

That night we have our ice cream at one of the nice surrounding cafe in Aonang, 
I don't have any idea about the name of the cafe
But I do remember is the surrounding is nice and they mainly sell dessert only.
Even we take order through Ipad and make order using Ipad too. Seems surprise to me as Aonang have such service like this. so special !

We tried Trio costing 100baht, which mixed by chocolate, coffee and vanilla flavors.


The surrounding of the cafe is so comfortable. 


Next day, we have our brunch at the stall which opposite Aspasari Hotel again , 
pineapple fried rice 80baht

Morning Glory 80baht 

He was not feeling well that day but luckily we were going to fly back few more hours after, 
He told me to take picture with the motor scooter before returning back, he like to ride so much. He must be addicted LOL

How we go back to airport ?
We bought bus ticket from the travel agency 150 baht per person for the tickers and at the time we told to come out, we have to wait at the bus stop. The bus travel almost 1 hour to reach the airport. As I said, the airport is small, 2 hours earlier to reach is sufficient enough. hehe

That's all for the overall Krabi Trip
The expenses we spent were RM900 for 2 person for the 4 days in Krabi,the hotel spent RM600+ for 3 hotels and RM640 for the flights for 2 person. 

I can say each person spent in this trip include all the expenses will be around RM1090 for 4 days here. You can adjust to RM1000 below if you choose a normal hotel rather a large bathtub hotel room like me. The cost is decide by you but the expenses to eat at here is always expensive. xoxo

Thanks for reading.
