Where I stayed
After leaving India, one of the most intense and exciting adventures to date we stumble across one of the most amazing islands we've ever seen. You probably haven't heard of Koh Lipe but it's a tiny island near the southwest corner of Thailand. Perfect sandy beaches, no roads or cars, only a handful of places to stay and that means not many people! Lady boys galore but no touts bothering you or shop owners pissing you off! Just sunshine, awesome sunsets and topless sunbaking!!! We planned on staying two or three nights but had to twist our own arms to stay 5 instead! We kayaked around the island and chilled out by the beach most of the time. It's definitely worth a visit!...google it!!
We spent 3 hours on a horror ferry ride to mainland Thailand then another 6 in a minibus waiting for the car ferry to get us to Koh Lanta
We went back to Krabi for the second time and stayed for longer this time! We stayed at Krabi beach which is a bit more exciting than Krabi town. Once again we jumped on a scooter and cruied up and down the coast and into town. Checked out their Tiger Temple and viewpoint lookout - 1200 stairs to the top - eh! We had an awesome buffet dinner a t a place called Bernies - $9 each which tied us over for a few days!
Taxi Sir? Suit for you? Tuk Tuk? Massage? Taxi? Braid your hair? G'day mate...you Aussie?
There is only so much you can take!Phuket is easily the biggest tourist destination in Thailand if not on our trip so far and the locals know this, everything is more expensive in Phuket than everywhere else in Thailand. They try and rip you off on everything! All that aside, Phuket is beautiful with awesome beaches and heaps of restaurants, especially seafood! We stayed at a great hotel called Sopita and just relaxed most of our time down on Patong Beach.
So many choices when it comes to food, shops and bars...cool spot for a party holiday!
