We set off on our adventure last Monday. Tony’s alarm went off at 5am. We were already awake and hardly slept that night. Mixed feeling of excitement, nervous and overthinking.
We flew from Gatwick to Dubai and then Dubai to Bangkok in Thailand. My best friends mum works at a resteraunt in Gatwick and she gave us a free breakfast and Buck’s Fizz to start our journey. The flight with emirates was good, I only slept for half an hour but I watched lots of Disney films.
We arrived at Bangkok 7am local time on Tuesday. We stayed at the D&D on Koasan road. If anyone has been to Thailand you will know this is the loadist road ever! It was so loud that my pillow was vibrating from the noise until 2am. Lucky for me I can sleep through anything and I slept all the way through. Tony on the other hand couldn’t sleep.
Bangkok was an interesting place, full of sales men waiting for the load of tourist who have the airport clothes on. They annoyingly pretend to be your friend and then they trick you to buy stuff. This put us exploring Bangkok and so we spent most of our time by the pool and then adventured out at dinner time.
We booked a flight from Bangkok to Krabi. Tony accidentally spelt is name as Tong. Luckily, they gave us a temporary boarding pass. The flight was a very small plane and was s bumpy flight.
Once in Krabi we got a taxi to Ao Nang. We found a cheep hostel for the first night. Ao Nang is a lovely area with lots of resteraunts, bar and beaches. On day two in Ao Nang, we went on our first hike up many many many stairs. It was called the monkey trail but unfortunately due to the rain all the monkey where hiding.
We discovered our new favourite bar in Ao nang the reggae bar! It has love reggae music throughout the night and then live fire show at midnight. We have had two very drunken nights there, starting on the Chang beers and then braving for the sungsum buckets.
Yesterday we met our friend from Brighton, Stu is now in Krabi for a couple of days. We also partied with our hotel receptionist and her sister!
The food is amazing here, pad Thai, red currys. Street food is great, lots of coconut ice cream!
We have spent two days at the beach. It is usually very busy as it’s a touristy area. I’ve enjoyed eating corn on the cob on the beach.
We have stayed in 4 different hotels so far. All of them have been different experiences some very good and some not so good.
We plan to stay in Ao Nang for a few more days and then we are getting a ferry to Phi Phi.
