    Krabi is a very nice place and you surely can take lots of good pictures. Just hope that you get good sunny weather. Been there 3 times and once it was raining most of time I was there but when the sun is out and the water is crystal blue it is simply lovely.

    Good food as well and nice Thai people.







    After all the picture taking you need a massage and I recommend you to visit the massage hut No.4 run by 3 sisters.They are very nice and sincere ladies who can still remember me every time I visitand of course they give a very good massage. Just walk beyond the golden beach resort and you will hit the massage huts.



    Enjou your trip!

    I checked, there's only one flight leaving for Krabi on Mon, Wed, Fri & Sun at 1610hrs,no flights on Friday night.

    And I can't go one week earlier either, cause I've got to work la.

    Weigang, if your schedule comes this week and you plan to join do confirm before this Sat

    Socrates, thanks for the nice scenic photos and hot tips too

    From the photos, Krabi not as beautiful as momo islands, or even Tioman.

    Phuket and Krabi is somewhere in the same region, chk these maps on google.

    Haven't research much on Phuket yet, but have heard nice things about the place.

    So yar, where is Momo Island? Google din turned up anything.
    And I've been to Tioman, nice clear water and good fishing... but not very inspiring for photo taking leh...

    Wah say! Your schedule so volatile
    Tibet... have you calculated how much it'll cost to go? Per person.

    I'm quite certain I'll go Krabi.

    Perhaps not going to hike too far in Tibet.
    Was ORIGINALLY going to tibet till my partner fall out on me.

    Some good deals on airticket to Beijing now. Around $650 round trip.
    Will stay there for a few days before getting the train into Tibet.

    Yes, there will be good and cheap food. haha

    Budget should be around $900 On Travelling. Lodging ave is around 40 per day (Thanks to Beijing).

    Total 9 days around $1300 ba.

    Is this journey of the recently opened SilkRoute?
    Sounds nice, but I'm not ready for that kinda budget and long travelling dates yet.

    I have been to Krabi, Tioman, Phuket, Phi Phi islands, Perhentian, Bali and Cebu etc

    Maybe from my pictures you cannot really see that Krabi is a nice place becuase perhaps I am not taking very good pictures.

    Overall I like Krabi becuase it is not as noisy as Phuket while Phuket to me is too crowded with too much action and crowded beaches. Phi Phi island is very nice but I don't know the status after the Tsunami.

    Back to Krabi I like it for is being not as crowded and full of action like Phuket but still having enough good & cheap food, nice beaches and islands like Poda island, Tub island to relax and enjoy. most importantly it is very affordable. If you action you can also rock climb there (very good scenery), go kayaking among the limestone islands and cliffs.

    Picture of Railay beach. took it while doing rock climbing and caving


    Ao Nang beach in the morning


    If you do go to Krabi, I would suggest you visit Krabi town as well. (I love to walk around small towns and you may find good photo opportunities as well.) If you really want to save money you can stay in Krabi town for the whole duration of your trip and take the local buses that run to ao Nang. Only half an hour away and costs 15B per person.There are a lot of good cheap food in Krabi town and you can eat until you are very full at the roadside stalls. see picture below



    Picture below my dim sum breakfast at Krabi town. I think it costs the 2 of us 120B altogther.



    Another tip , stock up on the fruits in Krabi town as well. Cheap and good



    Tioman is good but Krabi is better. I can talk about the other places another time.

    Just worry for you guys that you are not going at the right season. It might not rain but the sea might be rough and the boats do not go out to sea. I can go on and on ....Been there 3 times already and probably will go back for more ....If you need any tips feel free to ask me

    Socrates, nice thanks making my research easier.
    I'll make sure that my 3 days there are packed.
    Been considering kayaking... but not rock climbing...
    perhaps I should consider it, without any experience, would they let me climb?
