Dubai- Hanoi-Hue-Saigon-SiemReap-Bangkok-Krabi-Bangkok-Dubai ———————————————–After almost a month of traveling, finally we went to Krabi. This town is just 1hr.& 25mins. from Bangkok via plane. We took the Thai Airways at $80.00/ return. This is mostly visited durin October-April because drier season. Unfortunately we went during rainy season which is May 2012. There are many things to do but we opted for an island hopping tour and booked with OrchidTours (www.aonangorchid-resort.com) which is at 1,200 Thai Baht.
BAMBOO ISLAND. The tour includes buffet lunch, 4 small islands, Phi Phi Island and Maya Bay. The ride was so rough because its was drizzling and the weather was windy.At first it was okay but later on,it was really bumpy sea waves ride. Thankfully the sun set and we reach the Bamboo island.
There are announcement and a warning that in case there will be Tsunami, you should climb in the highest area of the Island. Bamboo island is Idyllic, very serene and i like it , its not crowded, unlike Phi Phi and Maya island.
KRABI, the weather is rainy and gloomy. There are alot of cafes and Inns around the area. We rented a scooter and drove everyday around. The cost of Scooter for 24hrs. is 150 Thai Baht.
This is a view from the restaurant, while boats on dock and we were having our lunch. This is PHI PHI ISLAND.
THE CLIFF AONANG RESORT. One of the best 50 beautiful resorts in Thailand. We booked early for 2,875 Thai Baht for 2 with Ala Carte’ breakfast. My partner said “the best pineapple juice ever”. Honestly I feel in love with this resort the first time I have seen it online. But don’t be always deceived with the beauty. The disadvantage was, some housekeeping personnel stole my set of gold earrings which I left with my plane ticket, few AED cash in the most secure and inner small pocket of the bag. The next day, time for check out the small amount of cash was gone and the earrings. I informed my partner about the cash and we agreed not to complain,we just let it as a gift for them…. BUT i did not inform my partner that earrings was stolen too. It’s my fault.I should have not kept it in the bag. Lesson learned number 2, dont bring any gold jewelries while on travel. Even the most secretive areas or lockers of the bag,some people can’t get their hands off.
I wish I know how to swim. Yes, I can jump like this one with life jacket.
