Krabi had been a long pending trip for us, what with our love for beaches, and Thailand being the most convenient international getaway possible! With our anniversary around the corner, we decided it was about time we made this trip happen!
While most people asked us how we could possibly spend an entire week in a small beach town, they couldn't have been more wrong! Krabi is actually a pretty big district with multiple distinct islands. So this took massive amounts of research to plan and book.
The trip turned out to be amazing - not only because it was beyond beautiful, but also because of the kind of freedom we felt while traveling - freedom to wear what we wanted, to be away from judgement, and to just relax, and be.
While Thailand has a very convenient visa-on-arrival process, one thing to be aware about is that you need the visa at your first port of arrival. Given we had only 2.5 hours in Bangkok before boarding our flight to Krabi, we decided to apply for the visa in advance (turned out to be the right decision, given the lines at the visa-on-arrival desk!)
Visa Cost: Approx. INR 4000 per head
How to Get There
To reach Krabi we needed to take a 4.5 hour flight from Mumbai to Bangkok, and then switch over to a domestic flight from there to Krabi.
This meant we spent pretty much all of our anniversary in a flight or at an airport. But then we had the anniversary week to look forward to.
Flight Cost: INR 55,000 for 2 people (can be much lesser if booked more in advance / off-season)
