What I did…
We made it to Krabi after seeing the breathtaking views across on the ferry. We decided to go to the beach resort close to Krabi called Ao Nang as the town seemed to be quiet. We found some cheap accommodation and all headed straight to McDonald’s for a well needed stock up. Back to the hotel for a shower and all went out to watch the football in the Irish bar. Played a few games of pool and then headed home after some amazing street food. Chicken, sticky rice and sweet chili sauce.
We all hired motorbikes the next day and went to find Huoi Toh waterfall. It was on 3 or 4 levels and cascaded down for about 60ft. We walked up to the top and got some great photos of us in the shallow top pool. We then went further out of town to the Tiger Temple. I kind of expected there to be… well… tigers! There were none. Apart from the two statues in the photos below. The temple was still under construction so it wasn’t the most amazing temple we had seen. But there was another temple to view there, not the tiger temple… but one on the top of a mountain. 1237 steps to the top… easy! Not so easy really, took us quite a while, and as you can see form the picture of me at the top, there was quite a lot of sweat involved! The views from the top were amazing though.
We biked it back to town and went out to watch the football again, FA Cup weekend of course! We went a few bars with me taking in beers from the local 7/11 (Spar for those of you in England… unlucky!) due to funds running low. We played some more pool and then headed home for an early night.
We got up early the nest day to go in search of the hot springs, a place we could not find yesterday. It was 40km outside of town and there was no chance of us making it there, back with a walk round to hand the bikes back in for 11am. When I say we got up early, I mean 9am. I went for a tuna baguette while the lads had a Full English. We had a quick goodbye as I was off to Railay to meet Brogan before heading to Koh Tao to do some diving, the lads, not wanting to do any diving, went to Koh Samui.
