Alright after being hiatus for a while, finally I’ve decided to be active back in blogging. I’ve been super busy with stuffs that I just couldn’t find a suitable time to blog. Lol..
Life’s has been great so far, syukur alhamdulillah will all the things. The surrounding, the changes and etc, etc.
Hubs is dealing perfectly with his new job, pejam celik dah almost 5 months he has been working with PSA. And as for me, I am patiently waiting for my last day in Aetos. Yeah, like FINALLY!
Both me and hubs realised that we have been super busy with work and so, after much consideration, we finally decided to booked a flight & hotel to Krabi. Ala-ala second honeymoon la gitu. (Trust me, you guys will never get tired of each other. We are planning for our third honeymoon now! Hehe.)
Took an early flight and reached Krabi by 11am. We don’t hire any tour guide because we don’t feel there’s a need to.
Halfway throughout our journey to our resort, the taxi driver stopped halfway and told us that he needs to sent some stuffs to one of these tour guide shop. Padahal I dah tahu lah tactic dorang. They so called have this collaborations with the tour shop and they are basically trying to sent us in and purchase their packages. Both me and hubs acknowledged and get out of the cab to have a good view of the scenery.
While snapping pictures, one of the lady came to us and told us to came in and look at their packages. We went in and she started showing us all sorts of packages. From island hopping to ATV, elephant and more.
In my heart, I da cakap, aku dah agak dah. Ni semua drama mama, nak step nak sign la ape lah. Padahal-padahal eh..
She’s friendly and the best of all, she can tahan dengan I punya cerewet-ness. She showed me three types of island hopping, a whole-day event inclusive of driver and yup, lunch is provided as well. The three island packages was Phiphi Island, Hong Island and Chicken Island. Phiphi Island definitely a no because we’ve been there two years ago. (We went to Phuket!) I find chicken island boring so end up I choosed Hong Island package.
Hong island package is inclusive of Hong island itself, Paradise island and a few more beautiful island. On top of that, she showed us another package for our third day. I chooses Emerald pool, Hot spring waterfall and Elephant trekking, inclusive of driver and lunch is provided also. At first, she charged us with a total sum of $300, but I bargained and finally she charged us at $220 for two pax, inclusive of free night market @ Krabi Town and a free driver to sent us back to the airport on our last day in Krabi.
Heheee, part bargain-bargain I favorite. Anyway, I did my researched before going and needless to say, I already knew how things are like and how to bargain. I’m expertise in all this. 🙂
The price is definitely within our budget and we find it worth the cash. All is included, tak payah nak pening-pening kepala nak carik lunch, driver or whatsnot.
So why not pay a little bit more and get all things done perfectly. All you gotta do is sit back and relax.
So yeah, our second and third day in Krabi is fully utilised now. Woots woots!
Once settled with the payments, we proceed back to the car and the taxi driver sent us straight to our resort.
Definitely the best resort. Strategically, it’s located along Ao Nang beach with many shops and restaurant.
Good news ; majority of the restaurants along Ao Nang is Halal!
You’ll never get lost. The best of all, the resort was owned by a muslim couple and of course, they served only halal food. I love the ambience of the resort, how spacious the room was and how convenient it was to go anywhere.
We were given hibiscus juice upon checking in. Sungguh tak bagus eh. Tak sedap! Uwek!
Here are some of the pictures that I took. I definitely LOVES their bath tub area. Arghhhh! One word to describe it : Wonderful!
Once settled with the check-in, we unpack our stuffs, rest for a while, get changed and out we go.
Perut sudah keroncong, so hubs and I decided to go out from the resort and walked around Ao Nang. We went to Canyon black coffee for lunch. Seriously their Thai Ice Tea is to die for. Gile babi sedap okay!
I ordered their Tom Yam fried rice, Tom Yam Goong while hubs ordered Thai fried rice. It’s delicious. Very much delicious.
After lunch, we walked around Ao Nang and shopped.
Trust me, you’ll be spoilt with choices eh..
Most of the shops selled island packages, ATV, elephant trekking and all. Im fact, they selled them in a way cheaper price compared to the one I bought at. But the different is, we already have a driver upon departing back, our packages is inclusive of Night Market and inclusive of lunch.
At first sakit hati tengok all the cheap prices, but after hubs explained to me, baru I realised that we tak rugi ape-ape la kan..
After few hours of walking around, we decided to went back to our resort and rest before going out again in the evening for dinner.
Day 1 is purely about resting and rot around the places. Nothing much to do for day 1..
In the evening, we went out again and decided to have dinner over at Chaba Thai Restaurant. I’ve heard good reviews about the place and it was nearby to our resort. I love love LOVES the restaurant because it was located right beside Ao Nang beach. A peaceful and calm area with wind and sound of the waves splashing when the waves hit the rock was simply serenity and peaceful. For once I totally forgotten all about how busy our life is.
After dinner, we had their banana nutella pancake.
A MUST, MUST HAVE…!
Yeah, after having all the good foods, we went back to our room and rest. We gotta wakes up at 7:00am tomorrow as the driver will be fetching us at 8:30am for island hopping.
There goes our Day 1 in Krabi. I’ll update another blog regarding our Day 2 and 3 in Krabi. Too long to type in one post and I’m afraid it might becomes too draggy.
So yup, till the next updates lovelies…
