Slice of Paradise ~~ Krabi Day 2

Day 2 ~~ Four Island Tour by Speed Boat (Lunch and Snorkeling included)

We had booked our Four island tour in advance but you have so many tour agents which you can book on day 1 after explore the Ao Nange beach area. We had booked from Koh Phi Phi tours - KohPhiPhiTour

We got up early morning as we had pick up from hotel at 8 30 am. As we don't want to starve ourself got ready by 8 am and directly to buffet breakfast. The breakfast spread at Aree Tara Resort was good.

The pick up from hotel was on time and we reached the jetty where we had to take our speed boat. In our speed boat we were around 12 people and started our comfortable ride with jolly tour guide:). The speed boat ride was stunning and very enjoyable , saw one of the most amazing views and blue water all around.

First Stop:- Railay Beach and Caves 

With limestone cliffs, caves, sandy beaches, and warm, crystal blue water, Railay Beach, Thailand is a place where a travelers dream is made.Rock climbing is one of the adventure activities done here.

Second Stop:- Poda Island

With every stop and with every island the views were stunning. This Island was one of the prettiest one..with layers of blue color water... white sandy beach .. stunning cliff...

Third Stop - Chicken Island and Snorkling time:)

Its named as Chicken island because the cliff looks like a chicken head. We did not go to the island and just saw that from our speed boat and directly jumped in the centre of sea for snorkeling which was just amazing to see beautiful fishes and corals.

4th Island - Tup Island

This was the last stop of our tour. This island is famous for - sand bar during low tide which divides it into two sections. Its one of the most beautiful island .. with lovely fishes and good spot for snorkeling.The island stunned us with its beauty !!

This was our last stop and by 3 we started back our journey to Ao Nang. This tour is highly recommended as they take you to one of the best and breathtaking islands.We will be taking with us so many memories with this tour.

Slice Of Paradise ~~~ Krabi Day 1

It was long awaited trip to beautiful Krabi in month of Novemver 2013 (2nd nov - 7th Nov) . We had our flights from Mumbai to Bankok then to Krabi. We had three days and 2 nights in krabi.

First day(Ao Nang)  was free just a day to relax and explore Krabi. We had booked our resort- Aree Tara Resort  in Ao Nang near Ao Nang beach . Resort was just 10 min walk from the beach . Our check in time was 2 in the after noon  and we had reached by 11 30 am so had enough time.First thing we booked a scooty for just 200 Bhatt a day . And started exploring the beach are and unlimited shops and food joints. We bought a local Sim card from seven 11 (famous shop after every 10 shops ) which included 7 days 3G Internet free.

In the evening we went to Ao Nang beach , first look gave us an amazing feel...serene and a huge cliff .This beach was beautiful and water was warm perfect for swimming. The sand was really sticky like clay which i had never seen in any other beach. We sat on the beach and was enjoying the cool weather and scenic beauty.

After having a good swim , we saw one of the most stunning sun set @Ao Nang.
Later evening we started wandering the streets which were full of eating joins , cafes and shops for buying all stuff u need for beach holidays, Let me tel you there were amazing shops having beautiful decor items .I felt like buying each and everything . As were damn hungry we thought of having Authentic Thai food from the stalls on the streets.
Chicken in Red Curry with Rice.

Who said Krabi doesn't have night life . They have happening joints, live music + pool table.

 And how can I forget the foot message that we took for 200 Bhatt for one hour. It was a treat to our legs before going to sleep in our cosy room :).Off to sleep.

Highlights for Day 1 = Rent a Scooty + Ao Nang Beach + Authentic Thai Food from Local stall + Explore the shops
