Warghhhh…. I had to wake up early! And I still can’t believe that I’m in THAILAND! My Island Hopping tour starts at 8 am and missing this will cost me 1050 Baht! LOL
So, the night before I managed to secure a package for Island Hopping at Boon Rub Travel and Tour, 101, Utarakit Road, Mueang Krabi, Krabi, 81000. Honestly, it was a great deal! Well, I think Patty and Jenny likes me! Because when I asked everyone else, they said they paid a different price. Lucky me!
The van picked me up with Taka-San and and Ikuei at Pak Up Hostel. It seems that we are sharing boats with other travelers from other tour agencies. They code share their services. This is when I get to know how much other paid and some paid up to 2000 Baht for the exact same thing!
It was breathtaking view when we arrived at Ao Nang Beach, Krabi. I kept pinching myself! Still can’t believe it that I made it here ALONE! We all gathered there to be divided into boats and I found Malaysians on the same boat! Eira, Herman and Akim drove all the way from Kuala Kedah Port to Ao Nang, Krabi!
Okay, do ignore my face. That is a face forced to wake up early! haha.. But it was all worth it! The journey on Andaman Sea was simply amazing; I am rather speechless.
Though I almost threw up due to Sea Sickness, I manage to calm myself down and enjoy the trip. Self reminder: Don’t sit at the front section of the boat unless you wanna have puke fiesta! 😛
The boat made its first stop at Railey Beach to pick up people from this small island for the same tour. I was already excited when I saw how clear the water was! It’s so beautiful ; I have never seen anything like this in my life.
Our first destination was Koh Mai Pai or rather known as Bamboo Island. The sea was a lil bit choppy the day I was there, so the waves were rough a lil. Nonetheless, I enjoyed the sun and water! Splendid experience!
Can you believe the water was so clear? And I was in the middle of the Andaman Sea! People told me it’s called Emerald Crystal Clear water. And I have to agree. It did look Emerald much.
We spent about 1 hour here and we were off to other Islands. It was truly great experience for me.
And the best part is that I did it SOLO! More stories about my backpacking coming up in next posts. Till then, keep on traveling peeps! 😀
