Travel 2013: Krabi - Day 1 [Part one]

The long awaited short getaway had finally arrived!

4 months ago, after discovering that the Air Asia Flights to Krabi were dirt cheap at that point,

Me and my other three friends just booked, packed our bags and flew all the way there!The 4-Stars Resort we stayed in during our 3D2N there in Krabi.
Ananta Burin Resort, located at Ao Nang, the main central for all tourists!

Why can't the services in Malaysia be this good and sincere?Krabi_2013Krabi_2013-001

As expected from a 4-Stars Resort.
A very clean room and everything looks very well maintained.

As our resort was located at a tourist area, all we had to do was to walk opposite and negotiated a good price for private tour around Krabi.It cost us about RM180 per person for a full day itinerary including Half Day Kayakking, Lunch, Emerald Pool, Hot Spring and Tiger Cave Temple and a private luxury van just for us.
The tour practically covered everything that was to offer from Krabi!Tips:
I would suggest people who are intending to go to join these tour packages so that you don't have to waste time haggle with all those tuk tuk drivers as some of these places are pretty secluded, and way too far to be reached using a tuk tuk.After we got our package, then off we went to our first stop!Krabi_2013-003

I wouldn't mind to get stuck in jams with roads like these!


First stop! Half Day Kayakking at Ao Tha Lane!
Took us about 40 minutes to reach this place!

Yay! Our happy faces!

Paddling into the open ocean with the sun, blue sky and the sea!

Stopping by at Gypsy Islands - A grave to wandering gypsies more than a hundred years ago!


And then our leader slowly guided into the island surrounded by mangroves.

A beautiful place. So close to water, so close to nature.

Photos are limited as it was quite dangerous holding any gadgets due to the shaking kayak and water splashing.

All I could tell you that it was really beautiful, the trees, the stones, the water and everything....

I could only imagine how this place looked like before it got this crowded with tourists.
I am sure it looked like heaven.

Oh, and we got sun burned after this trip.

Stay tuned for Part 2! :)
