Krabi 7 days.....

Day 1

Bought Airasia Go promotion ticket sometime back for this trip ...4days free2night package...didnt realise when purchasing the luggage was not included in the package thus had to pay RM50 extra....rushed after taking boarding pass towards gate ..only to find out flight delayed 15 minutes...reached krabi @ 150pm local time & again made a mistake....should have pre-arranged transportation to the hotel....went straight to airasia counter to upgrade luggage 15kg for return trip..then took taxi to hotel...600 bhat...the taxi driver went straight to a tourist information office claiming that the packages offered at the hotel is expensive...since they were very convincing we purchased jungle trekking & phi phi island one day trip...paid 4400 plus 132(cc 3% charge) and left to hotel....upon arriving to Sunda Resort...as entering the premise one would feel its quite a bad place....but its not...i would gv a 2.5 star for this place ... checked in and immediately asked the hotel staff for 1day tour packages price...to my surprise its the same with the information office...lesson learned - next time dont buy immediately... got into room & took a short nap,,,,,woke up & found air cond water was dripping ....went out to Anong beach area....the resort is giving free ride to Anong & naporathara....while looking for a nice place to eat ...it started to rain ...called for a mini motorcycle tut tut to go to nearest place to eat phad thai ...paid 60 Bhat n he dropped us at a phad thai shop further up from aanong beach ....finally able to taste phad Thai after so long ... the last i tasted was went we were in Phuket ...rain did not seemed to stop...so took mini motor tutu tut again to go aanong beach area....went to a few shops & it started to rain heavily again....all of sudden the whole electricity just went off...pitch dark everywhere ....after around 10 minutes it came back again ...since its raining, called the resort to pick us up to go back to hotel....reported abt the aircond water to reception n they sent a technician whom rectified the fault....and that was it ... day 1 finished...

Day 2

Got up early morning & went for breakfast ...ate like a king :P then got ready for the day tour...jungle trekking...the driver came around 8.30am to pick us up...Kabun was his name...we drove to Hot Spring waterfall...took a short bath ...Kabun advised not to be in more than 20 minutes...according to him the place that we went contains more mineral compared to other places....then from there we left to Emerald pool ...had to walk 800 up hill to reach this pool....the place looks good with clear water greenish in color...Kabun mentioned the water will be clear since its not crowded...then we served with lunch at the exit...after went around the shops to check out things....it wasnt that nice...but saw some were selling pistols..its heavy like real guns ...& cheap but not sure if it will be allowed to bring through airport :( so sad....

Then we left for elephant walk ...it was a good experience but disappointed ..because its was just around the area next to the elephant camp and not a proper jungle trekking ....after spending an hour we left to tiger cave temple....its a cave with many Buddha's statues...& a tiger shrine...the energy flow was quite powerful....there was also a kuan shi yin temple nearby ...went around the temple ...there were even Thailand's Lord Ganesha statue...There were lots of monkeys around too...nearby they are building a big Pagoda to keep the Buddha Relic collected from all the countries around the world...and that was the tour...kinda tiring ...on the way back saw a local market(pasar malam) was open ...so ask the hotel to drop us there...since its very near to our hotel..while waiting for the tut tut...played sepak takraw for a while ...then left to local market ...nothing much interesting over there so we left early ...came back to hotel again & played sepak takraw again ...for another 30 minutes...then back to room & got ready n left to Aanong & shop around ...went for dinner & ordered phat thai & tom yam ...both were equally BAD!!!!! after dinner left back to hotel...

Day 3

rented a motorbike from the hotel & we started our journey for the day....went for a massage - it was happy hour with 50% promotion between 12-2pm...took thai massage & medicure & pedicure... rain started pouring again...went to next door hotel restaurant to take lunch...left after rain stopped ...we went around walking to check out the shops....bought some stuff n left to hotel ....joined the hotel staff to play sepak takraw...then left to krabi town after getting ready at night...it was quite a long trip to night market took us almost 30 minutes to reach thx to 2 thai girls whom lead the way....night market wasnt much ....probably those who can eat anything would love it...we left early from there ...not really knowing the way we took a risk..somehow managed but took a wrong as we were abt to reach ...manage to ask around n reached safely back home...trip was pretty tiring but we enjoyed the ride....

Day 4

Got ready early for the Phi phi island tour....the speed boat tour was good ...went for few island hopping and finally back home...the islands were not kept welll..so nothing much to say ...came back n rested for the day ....
