Inside the bus....
A week before songkran, we came to know that, its gonna be a holiday for us(working on a holiday happens most of the time), So we were all set to find some place to chill out, but unfortunately we didnt get any flight tickets to phuket or chiang mai. Finally with a help of some thai persons, we were able to get tickets on a tour to krabi and trang. We checked the website, it was all in thai, we managed to get some pics, it looked fine ,so we decided to go , without knowing what kind of trip it is gonna be.
On the first day, we were informed abt the meeting point somewhere near silom, it was hard for us to find and thus we were late. As I went near the bus, one girl rushed to us and said, "You are late". I apologized to her as she was pretty :P.
I was little happy that our tour guide was a cute girl. The first day seems to be just a travelling. Inbetween some guy will come and speak something in thai for half an hour and as we are the only ppl who didnt know thai, he translated it for us "Excuse me please , please follow me". Poor guy, this is the maximum he was able to speak to us all the time, with my little thai, I was able squeeze some information from him. "Mai koh chai khrub","pook thai nitnoi khrub" "pai teenai ?" . I was served with pot rice for the dinner.
We reached Krabi on the second day, we were put up in a hotel, but we were told to use a common restroom, as the rooms werent available in the morning, With a kind of irritation, we got ready. We were served with egg fried rice, specially made for us, as requested by me with my thai :P , then we were taken to the beach, we were told that, we will be taken to a place for snorkelling.
to the show the height in the middle of the sea
It striked me that time , I was wearing a jeans, and have no shorts to wear, you can ask me how come one goes without shorts, it happens :) . Later I ran and bought a shorts.Our first visit was to noprattara national park. around this place, you can walk in the sea , sea level is very low, upto ur knees. It was beautiful and then on the way to snorkelling, we saw chicken island, tub,mor and por-da island. At por-da island, we had lunch, some rice with vegetable, It was very very chilly. I was forced to eat fruits only. Then we were taken to the most beautiful island, this beach has come in most of the movies, as i have seen, its name is kue island, i guess. we laid on the beach for sometime. I was having a nice view of the beach, which was interrupted by the tour guide pushing me to go back to the boat.
Ha, I hate this. Hmmm.. I had to leave the place and the next stop was 45 million year shell beach. Though not much to see, it was a just a piece of information and did some shopping. The last stop was back to the hotel. Tired and cursed by sun, we rushed for a shower and a small nap. Krabi doesnt have much pubs , so we just roamed and ended up at 7/11, had some snacks and headed back to the hotel for a sleep, not much knowing about what is waiting for us next day. Will continue....
