Dec 10, 2011 - Day 1 in Krabi

Day 1 in Krabi In the wee hours of the morning we fled our hotel in Bangkok and took a flight on the lovely Asia Air to Krabi, a province in the middle/southern part of Thailand. We left the tiny Krabi airport and the first thing we saw was a landscape like something from Pandora (the moon that Avatar took place on). If Bangkok’s natural environment is a jungle, Krabi’s could be called a super-jungle. Everywhere you look plants seem to dominate every square inch of land. In the distance giant limestone towers and small mountains rise up...

Dec 10, 2011 - Day 2 in Krabi

Day 2 Krabi Our first full day exploring the coast off of Krabi! Peter and I decided to take advantage of a group tour package to 4 islands. We started out by snorkeling at a small island called Daeng Island, which was surrounded by reefs, where we saw lots of butterfly fish in addition to large schools of other fish. I saw some Moorish Idols, which I was hoping to see on this trip. After Daeng Island we headed to Hong Island lagoon which was surrounded in mangrove forests and filled with turquoise water. Next was Lading Island (aka...

Dec 7, 2011 - Hi Thailand!

Hi everyone, We spent 2 nights in Krabi and after arriving in Thailand. We stayed at a rock climbing place, Ton Sai, which was great for food and drink but the sea was too rocky for swimming. Arriving was interesting as we didnt really know where we were going and ended up follwing a young couple who were into climbing. When they said a fifteen minute climb over a few rocks we didnt realise what we were getting into. With 15kg bags on out back we made a practicle vertical climb for about 15 metres before a slightly less angled decent. A...

Nov 22, 2011 - Krabi Town Layover

We spent most of our half day in Bangkok sitting around in the sweltering heat in anxious anticipation to get on with things. After running about the markets and having very little luck finding knock off goods of any sort of quality we decided that sweating it out with the locals was for suckers so we retreating back to our hotel to do some reading and relaxation before flying off to Krabi. We will tell you this right now... if you are taller then 5'6 or heavier then about 210 pounds you may want to consider how much you really need to...

Nov 15, 2011 - All on my own ~ Phuket to Krabi

Left Vanessa n Abdeen in bed at the hotel to go downstairs n catch the van to the pier. Wasn't downstairs for 5 minutes before some older Thai dude came up n sat at the table w me. He told me I was big and he loved me. Hahaha these people are a hoot. He finally got up from my table n went back to sit at his, but then came back like 3 times. Guess he really does like him some big women! My van arrives and he made sure to say goodbye and wave me off. Random dude. Made it to the pier and onto the boat headed to Koh Phi Phi, with a connection...

Oct 13, 2011 - Malaysia and more Thailand

Hello again!! So, since my last entry I have finished up Singapore, been to Malaysia, and returned to Thailand. The last few days in Singapore were great-my friend Siok showed me around. We went to the beach and it was hard to leave because it was SO NICE to stay with people, in an actual home as opposed to a hostel. But I couldn't very well stay forever so I headed to Pulau Tioman, my first stop in Malaysia. I had high hopes for Malaysia-I had heard great things. Unfortunately, every trip has a not-so-awesome part and Malaysia was that...

Jun 12, 2011 - Same same but different part 1

So Thailand eh! We're now in the land of lions and elephants but should probably catch you guys up on our last month of adventures-hope you haven't been on the edge of your seat waiting :) We made it across the border into Thailand and jumped on what turned out to be an amazingly cushy bus to Krabi. It was the most colourfully decorated bus and after many an hour of what we're pretty sure was the same music video and awful Thai song we made it to krabi, jumped in a little truck taxi thing and then a longtail boat over to Hat Ton Soi and...

Apr 19, 2011 - Island Hopping

Well what a day today has been. Firstly I (Eva) survived a whole day of island hopping on a Longtail Boat. The one today was somewhat more sturdy than the one we were on yesterday but it still involved wading out to my waist (John’s knees) to get on and off the boat. We visited 4 islands – all different in their own way – Chicken Island (shaped like a chicken), Poda island (sandy beach), Tup Island (high tide so no beach to see today), Phranang island (apparently voted one of the best beaches in the world – very sandy and idyllic). Half way...

Apr 18, 2011 - Longboat to Raileh beach

Our friend Brook joins us today and after an initial catching up breakfast and a planning session, we catch the longtail boat to Raileh Beach. Catching the longtail boat was trickier than I thought as it involved wading out in the sea to climb on the boat – not an easy feat for me (Eva) as the water was up to my waist level and I had forgotten that I was carrying a cloth bag. Needless to say all the contents of the bag were as soaked through as I was. Fortunately the only thing that mattered was my camera and that seemed to be ok. For John,...

Apr 16, 2011 - Krabi - the beach at last

Having spent much of our trip at bus stations and on long distance buses we decided to splash out and fly from Khon Kaen to Krabi. This took most of the day because although the flight from Khon Kaen to Bangkok was only 1 hr and the flight from Bangkok to Krabi was only 90 minutes, we had over 4 hrs between flights at Bangkok airport. Neverthless, the time passed quickly and before we knew it we were at Krabi airport and then into the bus en route to our hotel. Arriving at Krabi made us realise how many contrasting places we have been to in...

Mar 21, 2011 - Same same ... but different

After spending a few days living it up in the Hilton Singapore executive lounge it was time to leave our bubble and head to Thailand in search of good food, warm weather and soaking up our first installment of South East Asian culture. We managed to find a cheap flight to Krabi courtesy of Tiger Airlines and were a little uneasy with traveling with an airline we had never heard of. Onwards and upwards (excuse the pun) we thought, new experiences and interesting journeys is what ‘traveling’ is all about. We won’t go into details but it was...

Jan 23, 2011 - Epic boat trip

We arranged to go on a boat trip today to see what the surrounding area of Phi Phi has to offer and we weren’t disappointed. We set off slightly before midday on a pretty white vessel. We managed to bag the upper deck all to ourselves and sat looking out over the sea and the rest of our boat in our own ‘VIP’ area {or so we called it}. The sun was shining without a cloud in the sky and we are certainly working on our tans. We were at sea for 40 minutes and then Bamboo Island came in to view. Bamboo is a small island which offers more...
