From the hills of northern Thailand, we headed south to Krabi on the Andaman Sea. We flew Bangkok Air, an airline we’d liked on a previous trip to Koh Samui. It’s still good value and the crew; lovely.
Krabi is nice and easy. It’s not party central, held in check as it is by the many Muslims who call Krabi home. We stayed in a Muslim owned and run hotel, right next to the Ao Nang mosque with its regular call to prayer. We enjoyed our five days here very much; the room was large, the pools were pleasant and the views across to the limestone cliffs relaxing. The staff; fabulous.
We spent quite a bit of time out on the water. One day we hired a boat, a rickety boat, with just us on board with our ‘capitaine’ who took us to swim at lagoons and beaches – some isolated, some we shared with others. The skies were blue and the temperature hot. We ate lunch on a stunning beach and had ourselves a brilliant time in this place where the scale of beauty is off the the spectrum.
Spent some time walking through a national park to this beach.
Spent some time observing monkeys.
Spent time eating fabulous street food
Spent most nights soaking up some good music – reggae/rastafarian is the go here.
Spent some time shopping
Spent a day in Krabi Town
Yep… Krabi a top spot to end our three weeks in Thailand!
