Hi Dblchinis!
I figured I've been slowing down with my blogposts recently, like I've mentioned in my previous entry I wasn't in Sg most of the time during March but the truth is I was abducted but I managed to escape unscathed.
There are a hell lot of backlog blogposts waiting me to give them a proper content and here's one:
My Part 2 of Krabi Trip
(Part 1 here)
Bikes are easily accessible in Krabi, loan it for a day and you can hit the town without even putting on safety helmets. 
Lets just say this is an action only shot trying like I'm trying to ride when the vehicle stays stationery lol.

If you have read Part 1 you would've have notice we didn't access the pool even though we are desperate to do so, I guess just gotta blame it on the new discovery we found outside the hotel. 
However, the first thing I did when I woke up the next morning, had my camera positioned readily in my hands to capture the pool side view. But still we didn't go for a dip until evening because we decided to head out with our bike to explore the other part of town.

First stop, tourist information.  
We need to plan our itinerary for tomorrow, we thought of heading out the sea so we took our time to read up information on the pamphlet.

There are total of 3 island tour to explore but we decided to head to Phi Phi, as recommended by our tour agent.

The lovely tour agent touches up her/his makeup 10 times a day.
I know because this tour stand is situated right outside out hotel and whenever we walk/drive pass I'll catch a glimpse of her/him patting that foundation pack on her/his face.

Bike available on loan.

We also made plans for the evening to head to Krabi town which we pretty much regretted after we got there, PLEASE DON'T HEAD TO KRABI TOWN unless you have ample time to spare.
Because calling it Town is too overrated, it looks more like a small pasar malam area with nothing real fancy. However, if you want a feel of the authentic Thai ambience, by all means head there!
The tour station will arrange transport to pick us up from our hotel at 6pm (takes around 45 mins to get to Krabi Town if you staying near my area) and drop us off the same area at around 9.30pm (time set to return from Krabi Town at 9pm), I can't remember how much it cost for the return trip but you can try asking them again. 
After our arrangements, we are now Dora the explorer for today.

I had Basil Chicken and Mr Husb ordered Basil pork and it looks the same I know. 
Regardless of that, the authentic flavour just sink in my tastebuds. Yums + unforgettable.

Many locals setting up picnic near the beach, they are staring at us as if we are aliens. 
Given my skin colour, which is pretty fair for an asian gets constant attention everywhere. Ok maybe except for Korea.
