If you guys are following me on Instagram, you must be aware that recently I took a week long break from my mundane life to travel to Thailand. Finally I’m blogging my amazing travel experience with you all. 🙂
Ever since I was a kid, I just had one goal, I want to earn enough, so that in my leisure time I can TRAVEL and EXPLORE the world! Basically, my life mantra is “Work hard, Party harder” :D. So coming down to my vacation, it was a 8 days and 7 nights work cum leisure trip (since I had also scheduled some work meetings) with my friends. We decided to go to Krabi and Bangkok. We had planned to stay for 1 and half days in Krabi and then head to Bangkok. We chose Krabi, since, Its not a densely populated tourist area, but has some of the most amazing beaches in Thailand. So basically, you get to enjoy the beach life in a serene atmosphere and that’s all what you need for a relaxing vacation! 🙂 We had researched in advance, and hence booked a hotel which was near to the beaches we wanted to visit.
We landed at the Krabi International Airport at 7.30 PM (Thai Time) and by 8.30 PM we had checked in at our hotel, Thip Residence Boutique Hotel. Thip Hotel is just across the Ao Nammao Pier. Krabi in particular does not have much of a night-life as compared to Bangkok or Koh Samui, but you have nice little bars and shacks which are open till mid-night. Having travelled the entire day, we were absolutely exhausted to go anywhere far-off, so we decided to go for an authentic Thai dinner and some drinks to a shack (I absolutely fell in love with the cute wooden furniture they had), which was just 2 minutes away from our hotel. We had delish Pad Thai and Red Curry with some local beer and Pinacolada. And after our dinner, we dozed off.
Ok, so ain’t these views amazing! Palm Trees, Mountains and Pool 😀
We decided to visit Railay Beach and Phra Nang Beach for the day! Both of these beaches are two of the most famous beaches in Krabi and are adjacent to each other. We took a boat ride from Ao Nammao Pier to reach there.

Now it was the time to take the boat ride. The boat takes you to Railey Beach and from there you start your walk towards different parts of the beach. And once you reach there, you are bound to get lost in the enchanting beauty of this place! Emerald green and blue landscapes with limestone rock caves, white sand and gorgeous sunshine. Bliss! 🙂
At Railay Beach, you can walk on the white sand, bare foot, enjoy the sun rise and sunset and have yummy lunch at Sunrise Cafe with a perfect view. We took a late lunch while returning back. After a nice walk and chit-chat session, we headed towards Phra Nang Beach, which has marvellous limestone rock caves and little juice and pan cake shops on its way. And then its the place, where you can relax and soak up the sun! 🙂
Phra Nang Caves and Beach
This beach was probably the best part of our entire Krabi trip. Oh! And if you ever happen to visit, dont forget to take your essentials- a beach towel, swimsuit, sunglasses, sunscreen, water and an extra pair of clothes. It was almost 4 PM when we started feeling hungry, and decided to head back and had our lunch at Sunrise Cafe before we went back to our hotel. For lunch, we again ordered Pad Thai (me loves it), Stir Fried Chicken in Red Curry and Spaghetti Pasta in mixed sauce, and it was the best meal from our entire Thai Trip!:D
Finally, after this yummy lunch, we came back to our hotel. After freshening up, we went out for a walk and then dinner at our hotel. Later at night, we all sat in the garden of our hotel, chit-chatted with some drinks. We had our flight back to Bangkok at 6 AM, so we had checked out from our hotel at 3 AM. It was a fun-filled relaxing time we had in Krabi.
Hope you guys enjoyed reading this. Stay tuned for my Bangkok Diaries.
