Ao Thalane is the most beautiful mangrove forest in Thailand, bay and canyon are the passage way of nature and plenty of wildlife such as monkey. Kayaking really suffering for those who seldom exercise regularly, just like me! It took us 2 hours to kayak around the bay and mangrove forest.

The most scary in this kayaking experience was the weather turn bad when the way back to the port. The wind storm and the wave was so frightening, our boat can't move forward due to the wind flow direction was towards us. Other boats were far away from us include the tour guide. You can imagine the feeling of nervous and helpless in middle of big sea.. Finally, the tour guide was return for rescue, thanks god and we arrived the land with safe. It was really challange and exciting games for us especially it was our 1st try on kayaking and unforgettable experience.

Phi Phi Island tour

Phi Phi Island tour - July is the raining season in Thailand, that's why there is also low season for travel in Krabi. Luckily the day was sunny while we hang out to the Phi Phi Island. The tour pick us from the Hotel in the early about 9am and drop us at the Ao Nang bay. The speedboat was ready waiting for us when we arrived. The speedboat is power by 3 engine and cater for 30-50 passenger. Due to the low season, our boat is around 30 persons. At first and second spot, we were drop for snorkerling. After snorkerling, we were park at MayaBay. I like the scene at Maya Bay where the beach is clean, here is also full of tourists. Then, we break for buffet lunch at Phi Phi Island. They served spicy Tomyam soup and spaghetti. The last island we went was Bamboo Island, there is a huge white sand beach. We stop about 1 hour at bamboo island and depart to return to Ao Nang. It took around 1 hour more to arrive Ao Nang and the tour agent send us back to Hotel by shuttle Van.

Ao Nang Street - We take a walk to Ao Nang street which is about 15 minutes from Aree Tara Resortl. We tried to do some research on next day tour package at Tourist Information centre. Finally we able to get the package cheaper as compare to the offer from Hotel. The tour package is Ao Thalane Kayaking + Elephant Treking, also at 1,000 Thai Bath per pax. But at least we save about 300 TB due to group of 10 pax. Next, we have our dinner at Tanta's Restaurant which was recommend by the tourist information staff. The food at Tanta's Restaurant were really nice but the price was expensive as compare to the Kulakasai seafood. After the dinner, we take a walk at the Ao Nang street, here they have Subway, McDonald's, 7eleven, Starbucks, Swensens and plenty of fast food choices which is convenient to the tourist. May be you should try the local food like banana shake and banana pie at the stall outside the McDonald's streetway.
