We needed to catch an earlyish flight back to Bangkok from Krabi so we decided to spend a night in Krabi town. Stayed at the Krabi River Hotel (600 Baht/night low season price) We made it out to Railay for a bit of beach time then headed around the headland to catch the spectacular sunset from Ao Nang beach….best see the pics.


My sixth trip to Penang in the last 10 years this time it was on Thai visa business. Usually my Non immigrant O visa gets extended in Thailand, however as I had to leave Thailand in a hurry for a quick trip home (England) I didn’t have time to get to Chiang Mai Immigration for an re-entry permit. Anyway it was a good excuse for a holiday and Tacks first time in Malaysia, we also manged a few days on the beach in Southern Thailand. We took the sleeper train from Chiang Mai to Bangkok and then made our way over to Survarnabhumi for our international flight to Penang with Air Asia. Booking ahead we got our Air Asia tickets for around 2000 Baht each (which is about 30 quid in real money and this included the international departure tax of 750 Bhat. A Bargain For Sure!
