Krabi | Thailand

Discovering Krabi On June 2017 , A place where the magnificent limestone cliffs are left unspoiled , A place where the clear blue sea waters located . had my four days three night Holiday vacation at Ao Nang District in Krabi , Ao nang is one of beach in Krabi . Originally a backpacker hotspot, it is now moving rapidly towards the package tourist crowd as the airport brings in more charter flights with each season . there is a good range of accommodation , many good restaurants , easy transport and convenience tour agencies along the street to bargain , makes me easy to exploring Krabi .
Once again I choose Airasia Airline (Now everyone can Fly) . At first , Looking for Flight ticket that sold for RM400++ and it was consider expensive Flight ticket to Krabi . To get a great deal , I decided to booked Flight and hotel together with Airsiago that gave us a great deal at RM700++ per Pax only . Thailand always is a great place to visit no matter on beaches or Places even Shopping . During the rate exchange getting worse , Malaysian like us are really hard to spend much at oversea . The money changer rate for June 2017 went to RM12.76 = 100Baht , I afraid what gonna happen in another five years " RM15 = 100Baht? " . Spend smart for continuous Travel in the future , Hahaha .
When choosing Mobile network in Thailand , I always use Dtac Mobile network service while in Thailand for several times . I didn't really compare the price with others Network because Dtac is reliable . We choose five day Unlimited internet data plan for 139Baht .
Getting a mini van is easy in the airport with the official mini van counter that located at leaving entrance , same hall with mobile network store and car rental store . For group below 7 person charges per pax is 150Baht and 1050Baht for 7 - 12 person airport transfer to Hotel . While The mini van driver drop us at hotel lobby , he offers us Hotel transfer to airport for 800Baht and took 300 Baht booking fees .  After that on the second day touring with another mini van driver , He offer us only 600Baht for Airport Transfer but we booked the previous one and just stick to that driver . If you guys looking for much more cheaper two way airport transfer rate , Let me know I will pass the contact to you .

Vogue Resort & Spa Ao Nang
Our Four day three night accommodation , The Vogue Resort & Spa Ao nang . The location is excellent with only a short walk to the beach and the streets .

Massaman Restaurant & Bar
The Evening is getting darker , get a refreshment bath and head out to one of the top recommended Thai food Restaurant called Massaman . Settle down our dinner here with warm welcome from the staff on the floor , we found out the food here was overrated by the source that I research .
Shop for Souvenir after Dinner
Day 2
We Book a full day tour for three days last night at the street on the random stall that shown up along the road after our dinner , we survey pricing one by one since there was more than 20 stall along the road and bargain for the best price . We paid 1550Baht For Day 2 tour with three place for activity and all the way to Phanga Nga Province , About two hour drive from Krabi .

Phang-Nga Rafting Camp พังงาราฟติ้ง
White Water Rafting at between Phuket and Karbi , Although there are no large rivers At Krabi , nearby Phang Nga province is a good place to enjoy this eco-friendly adventure sport . The trip heading to Phang Nga Province , about 80 Kms from Krabi and rafting on the main Phang nga river . Whether you are white water rafting for the first time or an experienced rafter looking for lots of adventure and It was my first time .

Sa Nang Manora Waterfall
23 minute Drive from Phang-Nga Rafting Camp to Sa Nang Manora Waterfall and spend one hours here . cooling place surrounding by Rainforest .
Simple late lunch been served by local , Item that can be refill is white rice , Fried Egg and Tom Yam Soup(Soup Only) . This lunch is include with the package .

Phung Chang Cave
Four years ago I was here and this time I'm here again , Go through the same cave entrance to explore the cave .

Cheap Cheap Restaurant
Cheap Cheap Restaurant located along Tambon Ao Nang Road , The main road of Ao Nang . We get to know this restaurant from our driver that bring us to Phang Nga this afternoon , He said this restaurant belongs to his friend and served good Local Thai food . It just 5 minute walk from our hotel , We decide to get our dinner here after the bath refreshment .
Dessert after Dinner , Stir-fried ice cream ice pan ice cream, rolled ice cream or ice cream rolls is a hand made ice cream dessert made with milk poured on an iced grill, mixed with fruit or different ingredients on the ice-pan .

Day 3
Island hopping day tour , We book Phi Phi island Tour but misunderstanding and been send to four island hopping tour . That night we booked and paid Phi Phi Island for 750 Baht Per person , at that moment we found out that we are on the wrong island and misleading by tour guide . In the end , The tour agency refund us 350 Baht and says so many times of "Sorry" , Even though the members are not really happy about it but can't do anything since time and boat cannot be adjusted anymore .

Krabi 4-Island Tour
This is a popular day trip from Ao Nang, taking in the group of islands closest to the coast – the ones that can be seen on the horizon from the beach. The four islands are Koh Poda, Koh Gai (Chicken Island), Koh Tub and Koh Mor . The three island stop was fine but the snorkeling was not worth it at all , Everyone paid for Marine national Park fees to see dead Coral and only few fish swims around .
Went back early from Island Hopping This morning that ends at 2PM , we drop by at our own hotel swimming pool and had a short fun here .
Since Have time before dinner , I walk out from hotel and go down on the street to explore what is happening in Ao Nang . Following the main road , I saw Numbers of souvenir shop , ATMs Machine , 7-Eleven , Restaurants and others too .
After 10 Minute walk , I reach the beach walk way and walk along the road since it gonna be sunset soon . The atmosphere is Stunning when I watching the Sea from upper side .
RCA Entertainment Is the street that came alive at night , The place where nightlife happening for Beer and Girls . While you walk through the street , Thai girls will approach and call you to spend a beer at their bar or slap your butt to make a attention . Know them from the bar then they will offer to your bed , hahaha ....
Population that is 90% Muslim , though of course the development of these areas has brought many Buddhist and Chinese Thais, as well as western expats, to live and work here . Perhaps because of the local population, Krabi has always been a family-friendly place, generally avoiding the more salacious night-time entertainment that can be found in Phuket or Pattaya .

Aree BaBa
Time for Dinner , We try out this sounds nice Thai food . After compare with last night at Cheap Cheap Restaurant , I strongly suggest Cheap cheap Restaurant is the best Thai Food at the moment . Both of this Restaurant offered  reasonable price .

Day 4
Last day In Krabi , woke up early and ready to check out . The Activities doesn't stop here , we still have half day Tour until Departing Back to Kuala Lumpur . We going to Tiger Cave Temple then Continue to Emerald Pool and Blue Pool . The half day Tour Cost us 2550 Baht Include Airport Transfer .

Tiger Cave Temple , Krabi
Half hour drive from our hotel - 1260 stairs step , really makes me tired . Four times high of Batu Cave , It was worth it to be up there For The view . The surrounding area is covered with large trees hundreds of years old, particularly in the Khiriwong Valley. Mountains are on all sides and there are smallers caves in great number .
It Tooks One hour Drive from Tiger Cave Temple to Emerald Pool , Once reach here we found this eat all you can Lunch set that counted by Per head 150 Baht . Can refill any of the dishes when finished .

Emerald Pool + Blue Pool
Spend around one and half hour , The Emerald Pool and the Blue Lagoon are part of the Khao Phra Bang Khram Nature Reserve, and their waters come from thermal hot springs that are deep underground . As such , the whole area becomes a hotbed from all over south eastern Thailand .
THE END of Krabi 4 days 3 night trip , Hope that this article and itinerary help you much . Happy Holiday !!
