Just a short 5 days getaway with my best friend!
Dumped our books in favour of the beach.
Krabi, on the whole, is no stranger to tourists. In fact, we saw more tourists than locals the entire time we were there! Which was great, because if you ever get lost or are unsure, you can just ask any random tourist instead of the locals (they can't really understand English sometimes). Although it was a free & easy trip for us, we did book a few tours with the locals just a bare 2 minutes walk beside The Palace resort and the tours occupied us for a few days! Do bargain for the price of the tours and do not hesitate to do so because we managed to get it at least a few hundred baht cheaper than what was quoted for us.
If you wanna get out of a metropolitan city you call home & just need some suntanning by the beach, then Krabi's for you!
Nightlife is amazing too! Pubs, bars everywhere along the street and the weekend nightmarket sells amazing souvenirs at dirt cheap rates!
Aonang Beach and all the other beaches (PhiPhi Island, Bamboo Island, Maya Bay etc) are also crowded. So do not expect it to be a tranquil day out with just you and the surf, sun and sand. It's you and many others as well and I find this quite a downside for someone who relishes some alone time, especially when the waters are so clear and the weather perfect for exploration!
