Yes… My first trip to Thailand was Bangkok,which i really liked , last June…
But our recent trip to Krabi has really made me to fall in love with Thailand completely.. Basically m not a beach person… But the blue green waters, white sand and crystal clear view where i could see the colourful fishes on the shore really left me awestruck.. and not to forget the hospitality of the Thai’s.
Here’s my Krabi day one
I was proven wrong about my doubts of whether being picked up by the resort people from the airport , by the dutiful driver with a big sophisticated 7 seater air-conditioned van waiting for us patiently with the name board though we were the last to be out of the immigration after almost 1 .20 hrs after the flight landed..
This photo is taken inside the 7 seater..
The resort is located in Railay, one of the most stunning views and the beach and we need to take a long tail boat from the Ao nang Pier to reach there …as only boats can reach Railay… The Resort is called the Railay Bay Resort and Spa… Book through latestays.com , which we came to know about through a friend,which gives a better rate. But the resort website booking is handled by Krabi tours and travels , who did an excellent job for us. Book the airport pick up too… which would cost additional 1500 THB , per car . I would suggest to do this, Because it’s a hassle to find a taxi n then a boat by yourself… I think with the excellent reception I got , anyone of you would be doing that.. as obvious anyone wants to start a vacation on a high 🙂
And I was stunned by the communication the driver of the van and the boat man would have had.. the minute the van entered the pier the boatman was waiting to take us to the boat…
The walk to the Pier 🙂
Getting on to the long tail boat…
The long tail boat journey is about 15 minutes and the minute the boat reached there ,the resort guys were waiting for us n brought us to the front of the resort in Railay west from Railay East where the boat stops by a golf cart.. And I forgot to mention , due to low tide, we were transported by a weird way of transport from long tail to golf cart by a converted tractor ..LOL.. Yuvan had fun travelling in the golf cart of all .. and the tractor -convertible..LOL
And we were awestruck by the view from the hotel.. the beach is just at the foot steps of the resort n we had some immediate fun in the water n We jus fell in love with the place and the location almost immediately 🙂
Waiting for some good food after the water play and the flight journey 🙂
Krabi day two n more to come 🙂 My first kinda Travelogue 🙂
