Arrived in Krabi from Khao Sok around lunch time on monday 5th of June
Dumped stuff in room and headed out straight for food ( this is going to become a theme as you will see later on).
Had some fairly un inspiring pad tai and then hit the shops and then the beach. About five minutes after hitting the beach it rained. Well it is the rainy season after all!!!
Anyway after a nap, went out for a massive bowl of mussels in garlic Yum yum yum
The next morning woke up went for a Pancake off one of the street vendors, more yummy!!!!
Spent tuesday going round all the islands on a speed boat (I was looking very green after a few hours on that thing). Went to phi phi lai and snorkelled in a bay off there. The lonely planet description for that place is spot. All the coral is knackered from boats just sticking their anchors into it and any tranquility is kind of ruined by the numerous other Long tail boats/ speed boats anchored up. The snorkelling was still good though and swallowed far too much water Yuk. The boat then went round to maya bay where "the beach" was filmed. Unfortunately due to feeling very ill from the speed boat and swallowing more salt water than is good for you I crawled off the boat, landed on the beach and stayed there not moving at all until it was time to go. It was about this time I realised that I couldn't find my sun block and was about to fry.
After leaving Maya bay went round to a few more islands and lunch on one of them, (can't remeber its name). Got some good shots of long tail boats!! Sat in the shade trying to apply some borrowed sun screen on to sandy legs. It didn't work, just sort of exfoliated by legs.
Got back on boat and headed off to do some more snorkelling. This time the coral was a lot better cos there was a fixed point for the boat to attach to. Saw lots of colourful fishys, no idea what any of them were though.
Boat made final stop on bamboo island, sat in shade with towel over legs desparately trying not to get burnt. Beach was very pretty though
Finally got back on boat and made it back to dry land. Once in hotel room lathered myself in after sun, which I'd put in the fridge. Luckily only it was only one knee and part of my leg that got burnt as I had sense to keep my shorts and T shirt on while swimming. Must of missed the knee while applying the sun screen/sand. Which incidently I found (the sun screen not the sand) at the back of the boat.
Had the most amazing green thai curry off a street vendor for about 75 pence, unfortuntaley they forget the request that it was not too spicey (the only bit of thai I learnt was to ask for food not too hot), so i blew my head off eating it.
That night went and played pool. I turned into some sort of pool shark and kept on winning which was amazing because I couldn't see properly without my glasses.
