Thailand: Krabi

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 are 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 was hot. We ate lunch on a beautiful beach and had ourselves a brilliant time.

Another day we walked through a national park to this beach.

We caught up with some monkeys at one point. I am not a lover of rabies ridden, flea infested monkeys, so I stayed high and dry in the boat, but conceded that it was interesting to watch them swim out to reach the fruit and eat it.

We rarely ventured into a cafe, so tasty and fresh was the street food.

The music scene was good and we spent most nights soaking up some good bands. Will give you the heads up – reggae/rastafarian is the go here.

Another day we took a bus into Krabi Town and found it an interesting place to walk around.
