Thailand in 9 Days

Krabi 2

Hello there my fellow travelers,

I went to this beautiful country 2 years ago and I loved every part of it. Since it was a family vacation, I didn’t have a very aggressive itinerary. You can read my blog post on 3 Days in Bangkok which has details about things to do there. For the rest of my Thailand trip read along.

Couple of tips:

  • Bargaining is quite common in Thailand. Make sure you check with a number of places before booking your activities.
  • You can always book “things to do” once you reach Thailand than doing it online as it turns out to be cheaper.
  • Carry your own bottled water. The country is very hot and humid.
  • Carry lot of sunscreen and a floppy hat. The sun can be very strong.

I stayed here for 2 days.

Day 1

Drove here from Bangkok and reached by noon. Pretty much explored the town and hung around in restaurants in bars. This town totally reminds me of Key West. It’s a small beach town with cute bars and restaurants. Towards the end of the strip there is a small beach.

Kayaking through the caves

I took the Aa Nang and the 4 island tour on day 2. This was so much fun. They basically pick you up from the hotel in a shuttle and take you to the beach from where you’re put on a speedboat to go to the Islands. The scenery on the way is breathtaking. They stopped at one of the Islands for a buffet lunch and then we went snorkeling after. My favourite part of this tour was kayaking inside the caves. This was a very unique experience.

It was extremely hot when I was visiting and I do recommend staying hydrated at all times to deal with the heat. The beach here is called Patong beach and was full of tourists like myself. There are a bunch of small cafe’s and bars to hangout at in Bangla road.

Here are a few more pictures from my trip:
