Exciting KRABI.

Krabi, Thailand


 KRABI, a west coast of southern Thailand province facing the Andaman Sea.
We a group of score were at the province to  spend our weekend.The journey commenced on the 20.5.2016 via Sungai Kolok - Hat Yai and reached Krabi by 9.00pm local time.

Day 1(20.5.2016)

 Began our journey from Sungai Kolok and had a brief stop at Hat Yai. The main destination, certainly the market place and the floating market. On arrival, it rained cats and dogs after 7 months of drought.

Hat Yai

The floating market situated just outskirt of the town, on the river Hat Yai. This 3 times a week (Friday, Saturday and Sunday)  the market begins at 4.00 in the evening offers a colourful sight and local delights and specialties. The hawkers row their boats all the way from their homes and harbour  at the spot. Most of them are Muslim women.

   Day 2: Krabi(21.5.2016)

At the peak of our trip. Hopping the islands by speed boat, dipping, swimming and snorkeling. From the mainland it took a 40 minutes of hair raising journey to islands in the bay. The islands and the surrounding waters were once a location of James Bond movie in 1974.
