There is plenty of things to do in Krabi, but on my first day I will be laying at the beach and had planned to not do much. I was staying in Ao Nang that is the most touristic spot to stay in Krabi.
There is Ao Nang beach that is a 10 minute walk from the Hostel where I’m staying. Ao Nang beach is a very wide beach with lots of people… In the morning there is high tide which left almost no sand for you to lay your towel. At the end of the day there is low tide and finding a spot is not a problem. Ao Nang beach is the place where you will find a lot of long tail boats that make short tours to the closest islands. All day there are boats departing for several different places. On the list of things to do in Krabi, there are islands tours, lakes tours, temples tours, there is really a lot of offer.
Today I visited Ao Nang beach and it is so beautiful… This is the first time I’m seeing a limestone cliff and I love this natural wonder. While taking some sun baths, my Canadian friend found out a trail just on the opposite side of the beach on the very end. We did it and I think it is one of the cool things to do in Krabi.
This is called the monkey trail and you can guess why. Yes, depending on the hours of the day you cross it, you will find a lot of monkeys or see any. They hide on the hottest hours of the day, so on our way to Pai Plong Beach, we saw no monkeys. This monkey trail leads you to Pai Plong Beach that is isolated so almost no one is there. When you reach it you need to sign a paper with your name. I guess is for their statistics.
We reach this wonderful beach surrounded by rocks and cliffs and it’s magnificent. The water feels colder here, but still hot and the sea is more agitated. On this one, you can’t walk for a long distance without losing your feet from the ground. It is super chill as there are almost no tourists there.
On the way back while crossing the monkey trail that connects Ao Nang to Pai Plong, we actually saw a few monkeys, and dogs chasing after monkeys. I like monkeys but I’m way to scared that they steal my stuff or bite me and I need to go to the Hospital, so I’m always very cautious about this creatures.
At the end of the day, I return to Ao Nang beach to watch the sunset.
