I visited Ao Nang in Krabi, Thailand with hubby and son in February 2020. The holiday was fun and jam-packed with activities but at times I felt it was overcrowded and felt quite worried about the flora and fauna in the area. I have now read that the situation is the total opposite, the streets are empty.
Apparently Ao Nang has basically been built for overseas tourists. The best way to get there is by air and accessibility by road is very inconvenient. Perhaps when developing new tourists spots in the future, this is one aspect to take into consideration.
Now that the pandemic has been going on for over a year, I am extremely thankful for our Thai holiday. I can’t even imagine when we could make such a trip in the future.
Despite the overflow of tourists, the nature was beautiful and the warmth heavenly.
I must say the food wasn’t as fantastic as I’d envisioned. But we did find delicious Indian food and the fruits and smoothies were divine. My favourite dish is morning glory!
There’s quite a bit to do in Ao Nang to keep you active for at least a week. We managed to see all we wanted to, so I don’t see myself going to this destination again even though it was all very enjoyable.
We visited the Monkey Trail, took a longtail boat tour to several destinations (Poda island, Koh Tup Island, Phra Nang Beach), visited Railay Beach by ourselves, hiked the Dragon Crest Mountain, visited Krabi Town and the Nightmarket there, climbed the 1237 steps of the Tiger Cave and naturally swam a lot in the pool and sea!
What I love about South East Asia are the warm evenings. As the sun sets, the weather cools and it’s not too hot but it is still warm enough to walk around in a summer dress. My favourite time of day definitely.
How have you been coping lately with the ongoing situation? Do you have plans to travel soon?
PS. This new block editor is driving me crazy! My post doesn’t look at all like it does on the editor once I publish it, and I keep having to bring it back as a draft. Also having moved from a business plan to a personal one seems to make even more complications as many of the features I used to use don’t work anymore. Anyone else struggling with this “new” block editor? I haven’t blogged for so long that even that has made me rusty.
