Just like the Mornington Peninsula only better 😉
Wow, Wow, Wow! What a destination.
I have just spent two weeks in Thailand, and I’m itching to get back. The weather is fantastic (HOT), the food is amazing and the people are very friendly. Best of all, Thailand is still very affordable, especially when comparing to Australian prices.
My time was split between the hustle and bustle of Bangkok, and the tranquil province of Krabi.
Bangkok is not for everyone, it’s hot, humid and busy. But I’ve always been attracted to these sort of destinations, think Singapore, Hong Kong and Ho Chi Minh City. There are a lot of attractions, and transport is super easy, with the metro, overland train and Tuk Tuk Taxis ready to get you to your destinations. The restaurants and street food is great, and don’t even get me started on the shopping precincts. When in Bangkok, you can organise a half-day trip to visit the Risky Train Market and the Floating Market. And if temples are your thing, there are almost as many as 7 Eleven’s. Speaking of 7 Eleven, they are everywhere. This means you can take an aircon pitstop and purchase beer whenever you like……..
If you are after something more relaxed, then Krabi is the place for you. We stayed in a resort located at Ao Nang Beach. Close enough to the main street and tourist strip, but far enough, to relax and not have to put up with the clubs. Ao Nang is also the main beach for getting tail boats and ferries to the different locations you might be interested in. Most are day trips, and there are quite a few you can choose from. You can also take a fifteen minute boat ride to Railay Beach, which is only accessible by water (must do). If you want a change of scenery, mini vans can take you to the various attractions around the province, such as the Tiger Cave Temple and Emerald Pool and Hot Springs.
If you are stuck for ideas when planning your next vacation, you should seriously consider Thailand. Just make sure to check and avoid the rainy season, unless you like rain.
