Places to visit - Krabi

Took airasia flight to Krabi, Thailand and is only 2 hours flight. Very short trip it was only 3 days 2 nigths. I went in May 2008 and it was raining season, therefore dont go during this period cos cant go for any island hopping trip.

The hotel that we stay was great and very convenient. I highly recommend you to stay at Vogue Spa & Resort at Ao Nang Beach. Is a 4-star hotel. The room is quite big and clean. We even went for their spa. Unfortunately their jacuzzi is spoil, therefore please check before you book their spa. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Just accross the street you can find alot of food stores , massage outlet and etc. Mcdonald and Burger King opens 24 hours.

You can also try their foot reflexology or body massage and is really cheap. 1 hour only RM25 depends which outlet you go. Just opposite our hotel, there is this shop call Let's Relax, you can try their reflexology. Very nice environment and most important is clean.

You can shop around Ao Nang Beach and you can also able to find seafood restaurant at the end of the road. Can't remember the name but it sounds like Wang Chai Seafood Restaurant. You can ask around for the direction. The food is ok and the environment was great cause it faces the sea. So you can enjoy the sea breeze.

Since we can't go for island hopping, we join the local tour to Hot Springs, Crystal Clear Water, Temple and shopping at Tesco Lotus and Branded Outlets. Per person only RM90 for 1 day tour.
The hot springs quite dissapointing cos very small. As for crystal clear water, you need to walk up the hill before you reach the crystal clear water lake.

We had our lunch at Tesco Lotus foodstall. The price for a bowl of noodle is only RM2.50 but very small portion. Therefore you can try other varieties. The shopping at tesco was great as all of us shop for thai instant noodles. We kept buying and totally forgot whether our bag got enough space or not. Buy first and think later...this was our policy...ha!ha!
My friends enjoy the banana and mango pancake at Ao Nang, it is so cheap only RM2 per piece and is fill with mango.

Mango and Banana Pancake store at Ao Nang Beach.

This trip was really short and we wish to go back there again but this time I would like to visit Koh Lanta which is an island opposite Krabi.
