So it finally happened, our first all-girls overseas holiday together! Weeee~~~
Last December for 5 rocking days!!! (i’m only blogging it now -_-)
We rock! \m/
So we began our journey on Friday 17 December and had an afternoon AirAsia flight to Phuket following a 2-hr ride to Krabi Baan Purr hotel. Budget airline Tiger Airways, monopolizing the only direct Sg to Krabi flight had racked up ridiculous flight prices hence the alternative.
Day 1 – 17 Dec 2010 – Friday
We arrived at our hotel at Krabi, Baan Purr Room & Bar, around 5pm and did not do much for the first day but settled down and explored the streets of Ao Nang Beach as well as book for the next day activity – Phi Phi Island Hopping, at one of the many travel agencies along Ao Nang street.
Then we had our dinner at CHABI seafood. Didn’t take pictures coz we were too hungry! There is a substantial of Muslim population in Krabi so we did not have to worry about not finding Halal food stalls. The only thing is that there are Halal restaurants catered to Caucasians (Halal but with beer & non-spicy Tom Yam – no fun & more expensive) and there are those catered for locals (no beer, authentic spicy x 10 Tom Yam & very cheap) so you have to look out for it.
Since it was our first day and none of us had been here before, we made the mistake of dining at the former food stall. It was a big blow to our budget but ah well, a lesson learnt! That is what travelling with friends is about anyway, getting lost & making mistakes together :)
Our island hopping trip would start at 8.30am so after a whole day of journey & getting full, we went to sleep…
