Krabi Island Trip - Day 1

A super last minute holiday to Krabi Island last week. :D The air ticket and hotel was booked a week before which made me so excited. I need a quick escape as I've been working non-stop for months; not forgetting the 11 days beauty pageant camp that I've joined recently. It’s time to release the stress and tension away. It’s a simple and relaxing trip with good food which I really enjoyed with my boyfriend, sisters, mom and brother-in-law.

Day 1 in Krabi Island (25th August 2014)

The first thing we did when we arrived at Krabi Airport is to rent a car. It is so much better to rent a car in Krabi because there isn't any cabs on the road except for tuk-tuks. It is also more convenient for us as our hotel is out of the town and all 6 of us can travel in one car.

The car we rented was a Toyota Fortuner, a 7 seater car.

Quickly, we drove to the town to hunt for food. We were quite early as we took the morning flight so most of the restaurants were not opened yet. We finally decided on Chanaya's Thai Dutch Restaurant. They have a very nice interior but don't be fooled by just the pretty design, the food is just average but pricey.


The entrance of the restaurant and a menu displayed in front of it.

One of my favourite decorations in the restaurant - kittens!!

Tired, hungry and sleepy face. Selfie while waiting for my food! 

Breakfast menu. Ham and cheese omelette with toast -150 baht/RM 15.  

Breakfast menu. Egg and bacon with toast -150 baht/RM 15.  

Thai green curry chicken. It's quite watery. Where's the thickness of coconut milk? 
HAHA don't mind my photography skills although I made it look even worse. I'm still learning. Oops.

Thai fried rice. It's sooo good :D Order fried rice in Krabi and it will never go wrong. Trust me! :D

The price range for the main courses ordered are from 230 baht - 280 baht/RM 23 - RM 25. 

After filling our tummies, we headed straight to our resort to take a nap. Most of us had little or no sleep the night before because of the early flight. We stayed at Sheraton Krabi Beach Resort in Nong Thale for 4 days and 3 nights. The resort is HUGE. We had to take a buggy from the lobby to and fro our room.

King sized bed and a sofa with soo many pillows. Comfyy ~

Teevee, coffee and a side table for our snacks and drinks at night. hehe

Bathroom with bathtub! open or close the door? haha

The room was spacious and clean. The only downside was the creatures that came and visit us every night. First was a frog beside the bathroom door. Then a centipede on the floor and a lizard on the wall. Omggg.

Woke up feeling fresh and happy! :)

So happy to get to travel with my love again ❤

It's our 5th trip together out of Msia and counting :D


It was rainy season during our holiday at Krabi Island and the rain can't stop pouring. Sadly, we have to burn our beach and swimming at the pool plan today and headed off for dinner. Dinner was really good and so far the best meal in Krabi for me. Yummms!

Lae Lay Grill Seafood, located at the top of the hill.
