Krabi Trip 2015 - Eateries we went to

Besides all the streetfood we walloped, we went to a few restaurants or eateries... And I want to share with you my experience.

1. Ao-nang Seafood Restaurant

We were walking around on our first night there, not idea what to eat.... hubs just took my hand and walked in. Located on Aonang Beach, it's at a prime location where one can dine and watch the sun set. That's what we paid for.
The food was salty, way too salty, but I will say, they do smell good. If only they didn't oversalt, the food will actually taste quite nice.
Price wise, it's not very budget friendly, as my hub's pineapple fried rice was THB350 or was it THB380? I remember I was nagging him for ordering it as I believe other places will be much more cheaper. Our meal here cost us THB980.

I ordered Seafood Tom Kha and lemongrass chicken stir fry. White rice wasn't that nice as well. Had better white rice in Krabi.

After going here,I found that the review on Tripadvisor was kind of.... bad.
To be fair, the view was great.

Krabi Trip 2015 - How we got around

Here's how we got around in Krabi....
We didn't jump on any bus or songthaew except for tour transfers of which was inclusive. It was fun riding in a songthaew with the wind blowing in your hair.

As for how we got there, we flew with Firefly but if we are ever going back to Krabi for another time, we will have a road trip. It takes roughly 7 hours to drive there. Google map works even when we were out at sea island hopping :)

pillion riding at Thara Park

Krabi Trip 2015 ~ Attractions We Went To - Beaches, Hot Spring and Emerald Pool

In Aonang, there are 2 beaches. Nopparattara beach or sometimes spelled as Nopparat thara and Aonang beach of course.

1. Aonang Beach.

It's the busy beach.
The left side of the beach is where beachfront hotels are, middle is where tours get onto their boats, and the right side is where seafood restaurants are.
If you stay around Moo 2, this is will be the nearest beach .

It's fiercely hot in the afternoons and the beach still looks good when the tide goes down.

Krabi Trip 2015 - Things we did~ Massage

Thai massage.... it's good and relaxing.

My maiden Thai Massage.

Actually I planned to have it on the second day... but since we had time to kill on the first day before we can check in, and since we were already at McDonalds for lunch, why not cross the street to Atta-rak for a nice time of pampering.

Krabi Trip 2015 - Things we did ~ Island Hopping

Guess which boat is ours?
*The smaller one*

Island hopping is the 'main thing' to do in Krabi, as the better beaches and waters are out there, away from the mainland.

We have visited a few islands in Malaysia prior to maiden trip to Thailand.. and had the experience of swimming with lots of fishes and seeing colourful coral towers that are brimming with life in the midst of crystal clear waters. And I do mean crystal clear..... so clear that you can see what's in the sea from your boat, jump in and get shocked that the water is so deep, LOL.

So, we decided not to spend too many days going island hopping....just one day enough.
I thought I only wanted to go for Hong Island trip... but my dear decided to go a full day...
This is the one we took.

Krabi Trip 2015 ~ Food We Ate

Oh my, this is going to be a crazy long post.

As my husband and I love food, we ate non stop during our trip.
There are times when my tummy feel like bursting...but please forgive me as it's my first time to this land of deliciousness.

It's hard to not try all those yummy looking food

Reading this post about 'Krabi Markets' will give you a better idea of the 'markets' I will be mentioning in this post

Noodles and Rice
We ate quite a few noodles in Krabi.

Kanom Jeen
Name:     Kanom Jeen
Price: THB20-30 depending on type of meat used. Crab gravy will be THB30
Location: Krabi walking streets, Krabi morning market. I didn't see this in Aonang area in June.
Description: It's quite similar with Laksa Kelantan, thin rice noodles with a light creamy gravy. Yumz!
Verdict: I love love love it.


Krabi Trip 2015 - Things we did~ Visit Markets

I am market freak. Be it night market or morning market, or afternoon market, they all appeal to me, as we can see more.
As Malaysians, we are familiar with Pasar Malam but rarely do we have the same pasar malam at the same place for a few days in a week.
In Krabi town center, walking streets are almost daily, except on Thursday and the fruit market opens daily until 10pm. I love the morning market, there's so much to see.

Here is a compilation of the markets I went to in Krabi and Aonang.

1. The ever famous Weekend Walking Street in Krabi Town

Time: 6pm to 10pm. (they start setting up around 5.15pm)
Days : Fri, Sat, Sunday only

What's there? : Cooked food, Stage performance, Eating Area, souvenirs, clothes, leather ware

Food I saw : Kao Soi (Northern Thai curry noodles), Chicken Kway Chap Noodles, Kanom Jeen (Thai laksa), Kao Yum (Nasi Kerabu), Yum (Kerabu of all sorts), mushroom soup, pork sausages, traditional rice dumplings of all sorts, snacks of all sorts

This is the stage where I was entertained by some kids doing streetdance. The kids will go around with their hats after that collecting tips. To give or not, it's optional.
See those people on yellow chairs, there's tables too, for you to sit and eat the bought food.
