Krabi, Thailand – Day 2 (Part Two)

DAY 1
DAY 2 Part One

Now, the second part of my second day in Krabi. After our island hopping trip, See Tho brought us to Krabi La Playa Hotel for tea time.

We also went on a short hotel tour to check out the place. It’s a very nice hotel and I especially love the swimming pool.

We left La Playa for our hotel and still in a swimming mood, I took a dip in Sheraton Krabi‘s fabulous pool. I didn’t take any picture but here’s one from its website.

After a quick swim, I showered and changed for dinner.

We arrived at Ban Ton Khao, a beautiful farm house themed restaurant. It even has its own paddy field and windmill!

There’s a really cool wooden playground and I couldn’t help but camwhore, hehe.

None of the dinner picture came out well so I’m not going to post any. But I’m sure you’ll be able to read about it soon at KY‘s :)

After dinner, we went to Ao Nang where KY and I spent 250 baht each for a traditional Thai massage. 90 minutes of awesomess!!

The massage concluded my second day in Krabi. We headed back to our hotel and I hadn’t fallen asleep so quickly in my life.

3rd day coming up!

Krabi, Thailand – Day 1

My trip to Thailand was a good one. I enjoyed myself immensely, courtesy of See Tho from See Tho Holidays. See Tho is one of the most progressive men (extremely knowledgeable & Internet savvy) I’ve ever met and with a wonderful down-to-earth disposition to boot. Despite being the owner of See Tho Holidays, which has offices in Phuket, Krabi, Trang and Hatyai, he personally attended to us and made sure that we had a great time. And indeed, we had a fabulous time. Many thanks to Nicole Tan, who hooked us up with See Tho.

The reason why I enjoyed this trip so much was because we were introduced to a side of Thailand that you’d hardly see in the tourist brochures. All the trip packages offered by See Tho Holidays are personally customised by See Tho himself. He does it by travelling all over Thailand, trying out and experiencing every spot including towns, shops, hotels, restaurants and many more. Then, he would decide on the best and put them on his itineraries.

Personally, I’ve never liked group tours as the pace is too fast and you could never stay long enough to take in the beauty of any place. But with See Tho, there was never a single moment during the trip where I felt rushed. You may think that I’m a bit of a hard selling here, but frankly, See Tho deserves it.

On the morning of 6th July, KY and I took a cab to LCCT for RM65. We reached there and found Kellster and Nigel at Mcdonalds. To be honest I was quite worried about how Nigel and Kellster would be like as travelling partners as I didn’t know both of them very well, but they turned out to be quite a riot :) Especially Nigel. I’ll probably talk more about Nigel in future entries as his funny moments during the trip were priceless!

Nicole and Andy, our official photographer arrived shortly after and before we knew it, we were boarding the plane.
