So as mentioned in my previous story PART-1 and 2, the itinerary for my trip was:
Kolkata-Bangkok-Pattaya-Phuket-Phi Phi Islands-Krabi Islands-Bangkok-Kolkata.
In this article, I'll be sharing the story of my experience at the KRABI ISLANDS.
DAY 6: KRABI ISLANDS TOUR
Now, you see, Krabi is remote and far from the hustle of city-life. Very few population and only 30% of Thailand's tourist population visit Krabi. So the people over here are way too nice and helpful. They are honest and hard-working. So you wont be getting ripped-off here. I dropped my mobile phone on the mini-van as i fell asleep through the entire journey. The driver had no idea about it. The local tour person helped me to locate the mini-van and the driver came back to return the phone to me. Thats the level of honesty I'm talking about!!
This trip comes with 3 snorkeling points (one of them is night snorkeling), a meal buffet and a fire show.
We were taken to the pier and the boat was about to leave the pier at sharp 1pm. There was no time for lunch, so i filled my appetite with some mixed rice and a banana-cheese pancake. They make awesome pancakes at only 40 baht (rs.80).
The tickets have to be stamped and we're given a sticker tag to stick it on our shirts/tshirts to differentiate from the other passengers of the other boats. The dive goggles and snorkeling masks were given for free and had to be returned after the tour, failing to which there is a fine of 500 baht (rs.1000/equipment).
So, with high hopes, tags stuck and equipment collected, we boarded the boat. There were double decked and the upper deck provided the better view. But there's a limit to the number of persons to sit on the upper deck. So make sure, when you are there, you are in the front of the line or you may lose most of the open view.
The weather was awesome, cloudy and light drizzle, just the way i like it. Come on, I hate it sunny!!
Thus, we sailed off to witness the less explored beauty of the Krabi group of islands in the Andaman Sea.
