We arrived from one hell of a bus journey that started in Bangkok at 6pm and finished at our new base Seaworlds guest house around half eleven in the morning. The bus trip cost 550THB each and drained out all the energy and enthusiasm we had. Checking into the guest house was a shock for both me and gem as it was our first taste of a Thai guesthouse and you realise why it cost only 800THB per night. The room had two single beds, a fan, a fridge that I would guess is older than me (it did freeze everything we put it in so a big plus on the bottle cold drinks), a TV and a bathroom that had living creatures running everywhere. Seaworld guest house was only 500m from the beach so we dumped our bags, got the beach gear on and headed down.
The beach was quality and the warm sea was great to swim in. We spent the next couple of days chilling on it, eating and drinking around it.
On the final full day we booked the 4 island boat trip which visited Tub, Poda, and Chicken island, the trip was the best day so far and well worth the 400THB we paid. Gem also tried snorkelling for the first time (yes gem swimming along side fish). At one point she was convinced that the fish were eating her only to work out the life jacket cord was dangling around her legs.
If we could sum up Krabi in five or so words/statements:
2) very chilled out
3) great views
4) very clean
5) 100% want to go back
