SCENIC BAYS, CLIFFS & COVES

Maya Bay, Phi Phi Island
These islands had their central village washed away by the Tsunami, except a number of little beautiful resorts up the east coast that was left completely untouched. Tour boats  are running again and many bungalows have rebuilt and reopened. What makes this area unique is the amazing limestone cliffs that rise dramatically out of the sea resulting in exquisite beaches to relax. The island group lies 42 km from mainland Krabi and is only 1 hour away from Ao Nang Beach by speed boat. It is composed of 6 islands :Phi Phi Don, Phi Phi Ley, Bida Nork, Bida Nai, Mosquito Island and Bamboo Island.

Krabi/Phuket 2010 – Phi Phi Islands Day Tour

Posted By : J2Kfm.


1. Gorgeous sight of anchored boats on Ao Nang beach, but this beach is definitely NOT for swimming

If you’re in Krabi or Phuket, and you shy away from the sun, the sea or even refrain from staying outdoors during daytime, you’re better off holidaying in Timbuktu. Really. Mentally and physically prepared for the imminent tanning, the gals slapped on sunscreen with the highest SPF (sun protection factor) there is in the market. Kind of amazing how their routine of applying and re-applying the lotion took place almost automatically, at fixed intervals. But of course, you’d better be well-prepared, for getting sunburn is NOT the most ideal souvenir you’d want to bring home after a long day out on the seas.

Road Trip – Krabi, Thailand.

Posted By : Ina Mohd

Destination – Krabi, Thailand.  Distance to destination – 850Km. Departure point – Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.  Total cars in convoy – 4.  Stopover – overnight at Hat Yai, Thailand.
It was a 5-day trip.  4 of them were spent on the road.  That leaves us with only one full day to enjoy Krabi.  11 of my family members occupied 2 cars, while 2 of our friends in the other 2 with their families.  The journey to Hat Yai itself was an 8 hour drive.  Thank god I’m wasn’t driving!  …or so I thought.  My dad had fever on that day so I took over the wheel.  Poor thing was coughing nastily throughout the whole drive.
We stayed at the beautiful AoNang Villa Resort.  Gosh.  Felt like I was in one of those Travel Channel show reviewing hotels (think Samantha Brown’s Passport to …Asia?).
