Kheeow Krabi (Green Krabi)

It's November... And time to fly for our long awaited holiday. This time it's Thailand and a beach holiday. So here we are on our way to Krabi.
As usual we take the AeroLiner from Premier hotel to KLIA2. Since they started this, it's been very easy for us.

Flight was fast, about an hour or so. Weather in Krabi was welcoming.
We prebooked a car with Sixty and they gave us a Yaris. 

Nice cute drive we had around town. We drove straight to Tesco Lotus as it was still too early to check In.
It was greenery all around Krabi.

After lunch, we checked in and rested a while. Our pool villa was exciting... We jumped in at every opportunity.

Late evening, we went to Krabi Night Market.

 You should try all the delicious food spread out here. There is a place to sit and eat but it's always packed.
Things here are reasonably cheap, beach wear, dresses, accessories etc. 

Next morning also we spent going around Krabi Town. Dropped by at Vogue mall, but nothing interesting. 
We walked around town and took some pictures

Afternoon was spent around Ao Nang beach and swimming in our pool. Late evening out to explore Krabi Night Market. 

Next day, we visited the White Temple, just opposite Vogue Mall. 

 We also dropped by at Fossil Shell Beach. 

Evening we had reservation at Hilltop for sunset and D1s birthday dinner.  The view was amazing with good food. 

The highlight here was how they presented D1s birthday surprise. They dimmed the lights at the Sky Lounge and kept only the light at our table on and when the brought the lighted birthday desert, my son was speechless. 

The band singer sang a birthday song and everyone clapped when he blew the candle. He was very delighted about the whole thing. 

Next morning hubby attempted to climb Tiger Cave Temple where the tallest Budha in Krabi sits. Unfortunately the monkey were not welcoming and at 300 plus steps one even climbed on his backpack and attacked his head. He pushed it away and came down safely.
Here are some pictures he managed to capture:

At about 300plus steps

That afternoon, we took a bike and moved around Ao Nang. It was just around the beach area, so it was safe for four on the bike. We enjoyed it thoroughly. D2 kept sleeping off on the bike. Whole day spent on bike cruise and shopping around Ao Nang.

Next, we chose to spend one day at an Island. we did Phi Phi islands and Monkey Bay, James Bond Island and the likes during our stay in Phuket. So this time with kids in tow, we chose to spend time in one quiet island all for ourselves (well, until the troops come in late afternoon). 
This is Koh Poda:


We were drenched on the way back.
Night was spent cruising around Ao Nang. 

Our last day was spent on last minute shopping. 

Still, on the bike we went around Ao Nang and short visit to Fossil Shell Beach. 
The best place to shop for souvenirs is at Fossil Shell Beach.
Our airport Transfer was a 15 seater. Such comfort for our 40 mins journey to Airport. 

Bye Krabi.
