Krabi travel guide for Malaysian travelers..

planning to visit Krabi? well, i'm here to share my 2 cents on the tourist spot which has become so popular among malaysian travelers..

i went there last year..spent 6 days tanning myself..mmg hitam biler balik..hehehe..

Where to stay?
i stayed at Railay..well, for people yang nak pergi Krabi, u must ask urself, what are ur expectations?and what are ur plans in Krabi?
if u want a spot next to the beach, with long stretch of beach and u dont mind with minimum choice of foods..choose Railay..
but if u want a spot near to the Airport, near to good and cheap foods, near to shopping spot ang good massage places, well choose Aonang..
Railay is a nice place..very secluded..u can reach Railay only by boat..and from railay, u can just walk to the infamous Phra Nang Beach..ini tempat iklan pepsi yang Ronaldinho main bola tepi pantai tuuu..well, since tempat dia jauh n secluded..everything is expensive here..
well in Railay, ada two sides..known as railay east and west..i stayed at railay west..ada 3 resorts je kat west side of railay..take ur pick..i recommend Railay bay resort.. go for the privacy cottage..

What to do?
well, i think u know what Krabi (as well as other beach and island tourist spot) offers..DIVE or SNORKEL!
for divers, the view down there is great..but u'll find that some corals are dead..dont ask me why, coz i bet u know why..pollution, human activities and all the developments are bad for the corals..sbb tu for sipadan and ligitan, our govt dah limitkan amount of activities and development and no more people staying on sipadan ligitan..so, divers, if want better view, go for sipadan, ligitan, mabul or kapalai..if u're wondering, Malaysian water is still the best tau!

so, here's what i suggest u do in Krabi..
1. go for island hopping..
dont share ur longtail boat with other groups..rent YOUR OWN boat..
y?snang if u want to spent more time at one place or skip one place..klu share, u've to consider other people's interest...remember, u want to enjoy ur holiday to the max..so be selfish!

BEWARE of jellyfish! like i said, Krabi waters is not as good as our pristine beaches..so there's a lot of jellyfish..the most dangerous is the red colour JF! very2 poisonous..ooh n for divers, there's a lot of snakes tooo near the dead coral..so careful ya!

2. emerald pool!
for those staying in Railay, u need 2 get a boat to aonang, then take a cab to emerald pool..i will take about 1 hour to reach the pool..its located in krabi nature park..

ok xperlu cakap banyak bout this place..just look at the color..arent u tempted to just dive in and swim for hours?
few warning yea..
please DO NOT use the 'nature trail'..sbb apa? well, titian kayu kat park ni sangat2 tak di jaga,,so ada yg reput..ada yang berlubang2..u might fall down! well, my mom jatuh dari titi yang runtuh..very2 disapointed sbb foreigners need to pay RM20..but dia x jaga tempat ni..thai ppl only need to pay RM3...teruk kan??but if u use the normal road, its faster n safer.. =) totally worth the money and time..so PLEASE VISIT this pool..
pool ini licin..so those travelling with young children, take care of the lil' ones..
visit this place early-early-early in the morning,,after breakfast tros gerak..so that u can enjoy the place for urself..once thai's school kids balik skolah, they'll conquer the pool..
finally, please take lots n lots of pictures..we dont have this in malaysia.. 

3. hot spring

this pic is not mine..waktu smpi sini, my cam da xde bat..so, no memory of this remarkable place! air panas dia suam2 n ada yg panas btol but still not harmful 2 ur delicate skin..the flow of this waterfall creates a pool..how? from what i was told, air panas dah membentuk batu2 tu jadi mcm bath tub..best giler ok!
warning: licin, dont spend more than 30mins in the water ok! n drink a lot of water..take photo! we have hot stream in malaysia but we dont have hot waterfalls.. 

well, this is all i find intresting to share..y? coz, the beaches are not that good..go to tioman, redang, perhentian, sipadan, ligitan, mabul..u'll be amazed..but do what i suggested..spend 5 days in krabi..take ur time there..plan ur own holiday..its cheaper and smarter coz u'll not be constrained by schedule made by other ppl..only YOU know whats best for YOU.. enjoy!

if u wanna shop, go to chiangmai or bangkok..things in krabi (craft n clothing) are twice expensive..krabi is the place to rest n relax..

for muslim, i suggest u to go to krabi..y? easier to find Halal food..mosque..and muslims..
one bell boy in Railaybay even speak malay! so it feels just like home...

other place worth a visit?
a. Maya Bay
b. Phi Phi island

finally, my best shot in Krabi: 
phranang beach..ini signature shot of krabi tau! siapa pergi krab i wajib amik gamba cmni ok!

My brothers enjoying the view..n the sun..

our view during breakfast..waktu pagi, air tak pasang lagi...
waktu senja..lovely shades of purple and orange...

another shot of the long tail boat..
