This was actually the first time I heard about Krabi. The place was SPECTACULAR!!
Krabi is typically an island, hot sun, beautiful & lovely islands – a good place for you to visit if you plan to escape the winter.
On the other hand, if you love shopping, this might won’t be a shopping heaven for you as there are not many shopping areas, all they have were some stalls beside the beaches. But you won’t be disappointed with the sceneries.
We stayed in Aonang Paradise Resort, the room was clean & nice, ambience in the room was great too. As for the toilet & bathroom, it looks very island-ish!

There is also a swimming pool in the hotel, although it is not very big, but it is clean and quite a nice pool. You will be able to see green hills, trees surrounding the pool area, a great place for relaxing.
Apart from the beautiful sea, you will LOVE this if you are up for an unforgettable challenge and experience! Bring extra water and a face towel if you decided to hike it! It is called “The Tiger Temple”! Along the way up you might see some signs about beware of monkeys snatching your things, well, I didn’t see any monkeys the other time when I went up. But, better keep all your important items locked safely in your bag or pockets. (updated information on 2013, I do heard some people said that there are monkeys roaming around now)
My experience was I hiked it all on my own, it took me almost an hour plus to reach the top. There’s more than a thousand steep steps and the weather was really really hot. I met 2 elderly couple while on the way up and they told me to join them along. Very friendly couple!
Not to worry if you finished your water, there’s a water dispenser for you to refill your bottles once you are at the top.
Sunbathing, island hoping, stairs “hiking”, having some nice food…. really an unforgettable experience…. It is really worth visiting and experiencing the awesome landscapes at this wonderful place.
