Krabi Trip - Day 2

[8 Nov 2010] Had our breakfast before leaving to island hopping.

On the way to our long tail boat:

We stopped at Pranang beach:

Our tour guide helped us to take a group photo:

We hop on to another island called Chicken Island:

Then we stopped at Poda island for picnic lunch:

There were quite a lot of jellyfish in this island that we were afraid to swim at the sea:

So we just leisure around and I made a reversed 'C':

Then we started to jump for fun:

The weather was cloudy and sometimes rained. Finally we were back to hotel to relax.

After taking bath, we were out again for dinner.

We stopped by Wang Sai restaurant for Thai food:

Mango Salad, Tom Yum, Green Curry Chicken, Fried Pepper Squid, Steam fish...... The food was delicious and the price was average.

Walked to the street for night shopping:

Decided to have some drinks at the Blue Water Cafe near to the Walking Street:

We tried out the Cocktail because it was buy 1 free 1 (160 baht each).

Krabi Trip - Day 1

[7 Nov 2010] Once we arrived at Krabi Airport in the afternoon, Nan from See Tho Holidays was already waiting us with their van:

We were brought to visit Wat Thum Sir "Tiger Cave" Temple.

Nan helped us to take a group photo:

Saw a golden buddha tree:

Then we had our late lunch which was included in the tour package - Duck Noodle. Another choice was Seafood Fried Rice but nothing special. Some said this Duck Noodle (40 baht) was more delicious than Bidor duck noodle or maybe we were too hungry?

Then we passed by a local product souvenir shop but nothing interested me. I was more interested to take a photo with this colourful Krabi signboard:

Later on, we visited Marine Fish Rehabilitation Centre:

Finally we checked-in to The Small hotel. We were upgraded to Private Pool Access room for 2 nights for free which we asked the agent to arrange it if that's free rooms during matta fair.
There's several taxi tuk-tuk awaiting outside the hotel:

Ming Li & sisters negotiated 900 baht to go Krabi town & back:

It's a rainy night at Krabi town:

We shared to taste some local food along the night market. The Krabi night market was only opened during weekends.

Brunch at Levain

Daisy recommended me a nice place for brunch - Levain Boulangerie Patisserie. It was a bungalow turned bakery cafe. This was my Jasmine Green Tea (RM6).

Passed her my souvenir from Krabi.

I had the Seafood Pasta Creamy (RM9.90) while Daisy had the Spaghetti Napolitan (RM9.90). The food was nice & in small portion and the price was reasonable too.

We were too busy eating & chatting and forgot to take the photo of the food.

The Small Hotel Krabi

Me & my colleagues went to Krabi for 4D3N. We stayed at The Small Hotel which was near to Ao Nang beach.

We were upgraded to the Pool Access room for 2 nights for free.

The door of the bathroom/toilet is using sliding door, sharing with the wardrobe:

The wardrobe is ready with 2 red umbrellas & safety box:

Private pool access sharing with ground floor rooms only:

We were moved up to 1st floor for the last night:

Rooms were equipped with wireless internet connection, hair dryer, direct access to pool & private jacuzzi:

Once open the glass door, we could enjoy the jacuzzi:

Once you got up from the pool, you can go to take a shower:

I don't really know how to adjust the cold & hot water -_-"

The Pool Access room is ready with ipod docking speaker with radio & alarm clock. Fit to be iphone charger:

It's a small 3 star hotel but it's new, it could be compared to a 4 star hotel. The outlook:

Breakfast area:

The breakfast started at 7am - 10am:

A group photo during breakfast:

2 rooms can be joint together:

Rooftop swimming pool :

With all these facilities, 3 nights stay + 1 day island hopping + half day tour + airport transfer, it is only RM330 that we booked it during matta fair.

Overall budget for the whole trip, including air ticket / food / hotel / shopping was quite cheap too, about RM650.
