Our next day was our last second day in Krabi before our journey to Bangkok. I decided to do couple of things to wind up our stay in Krabi. Well, we woke up, didn't bother to waste a minute in the room as it was our last day. We quickly rushed out, rented a car, which was an SUV, absolutely automatic transmission, and cute looking. The deal was again good. You get good cars for THB 1000 per day. They will keep a copy of your passport and advance of THB 1000 more which is refunded when the car is returned.

This island – located close to the Malaysia border – is said to be one of the most unspoiled islands in Thailand. It was also the setting for the fifth season of the reality TV show Survivor. While not exactly undiscovered it’s quiet, clean, beautiful and protected – everything the main tourist islands are not. There are no major resorts, no beach parties just an ample supply of peace and gorgeous natural scenery. It’s protected national park status also ensures there is plenty of wildlife – as well being a nestling ground sites for turtles, Langurs, crab-eating macaques and wild pigs are common. Accommodation on the island is run by the National Park and guests can choose from either a tent or a fan-cooled bungalow.
