Yes !

Tuk Tuk in Krabi
20121013-101908.jpg20121013-101916.jpg
- up to 5 pax in a Tuk Tuk
- a must try for children as they will enjoy the ride !
- 20B pp around aonang town
- some didn’t charge Asher
- speak very little English
- bad experiences where he just dropped us somewhere
- can bargain a bit, only do this during low season
- there are sign board with charges
- otherwise, stay near aonang beach. Save on Tuk Tuk fee

- more expensive during peak seasons. – Charge very little for kids under 3yo
- some have very bad reviews for this operator. Luckily we got a nice tour guide.

What to bring and what to wear?

- a waterproofed bag
- swimdress for me with a very light weight chiffon top
- swim costume for Asher
- swim pants for daddy and a T-Shirt
- sunblock, you will need to keep applying to prevent sunburn
- slippers, preferably crocs looking soft sandals that you can wear underwater as the pebbles are sharp
- towel
- life jackets for kid
- water proof pouch for phones and camera

Fish Feeding

- yes, if your children eat rice and vegetables.
- bring snacks like chocolate bar, muffin or milo/milk (packet)

Food & Street / Hawker food in Krabi20121013-101343.jpg

20121013-101430.jpg
- our breakfast, 150B – 250B each
- our dinner, 200B – 1250B
- clean and safe to eat
- seafood is very fresh
- generous, big portion
- street food away from the “crowd” is more expensive
- don’t miss the fresh coconut
- no much food/breakfast choices in the morning
- Burger King operating hour start from 9am except Fri to Sun 24H
- Mac is 24H
- There are Black Canyon, Starbucks, Subways, Macdonald’s, Burger King, Haagen Dazs, Moovenpick, if you must know
- must try : pancake 20B and up, Pad Thai by street hawkers
- Restaurants by the beach to view sunset at “seafood food street”
- At the other end will be all the stalls for “massage by the sea”
- Aonang is a very small town so after 3 plus ( no more hot sun ) can walk around the town.
- drink and food are almost the same prices and I wonder…

Overall, our trip was wonderful! Maybe we expected less and didn’t do much planning. Reading up more about the place and reviews from good travel site is a must as most of them shared good tips and advices. Will we go back? Definitely !

We are very happy to have celebrated Asher’s 3rd birthday in a special way. He already told us what he wanted for his next birthday, maybe he didn’t really mean it but we will surely try to fulfill his small wishes.
