This is Day 1 of Krabi!
After our Bali trip in October last year, i knew i wanted another Beach Destination and Tiger Airways came up with a Promotion somewhere before Christmas so we grabbed the promo and paid less than $300.00 for 2 pax to Krabi.
Bearing in mind that April is not a low season, it was definitely a great deal.
We arrived Krabi at about 12.20pm and checked in to Mercure Krabi Deevana.
We love that it is at Ao Nang but not very near to the busy streets and tuk tuks are always available to bring us to the walking street which is about 5mins away and cost 40 baht (S$1.60) only.
Because it was already lunch time by the time we checked in and got the room, we head out to Ao Nang street to look for food and get some snacks and toiletries.
I know 40% of the population in Krabi are Muslim. What i didn’t know was how easy it was to find a muslim-owned eating place! They are everywhere and you’ll find in almost every shop, there’ll be one person donning the hijab. So we let loose on this trip and ate the local food we could find and most of them didn’t dissapoint. The 1st eating place we went to is quite near to the Mc’Donalds / Starbucks area and the signboard simply states “Thai Food” (very original, i know).
We got back to the hotel after lunch just to laze around, watch TV and made appointment for a spa session at Ao Nang at 7.00pm.
We went to a Spa called Let’s Sea Let’s Relax. It is just opposite the Mc’Donalds. The signboard is really small and you could miss it but it is really opposite Mc’Donalds.
We took a 2-hour Aromatheraphy Massage and it was the best i had in Krabi. Sampai tertido. Tak tau lah kalau berdengkur kan.
By the time we finish our spa at 9.30, went around Ao Nang Walking Street to look-see look-see, we realised most of the restaurants and food stalls were already closed for business. Unlike Phuket, where the night is still young every single night, Krabi is more laidback so by 10.00pm, most of the eating places would be closed already.
So that night we only managed to get this:
I first had this when we were in Phuket and had been craving for this for so so long. sigh.
We went back to the Hotel and managed to get Room service 5 mins before they close their orders. Thank god!
