Molly managed to finally succumb to sleep just as we were pulling up to Anata Burin, our hotel in Krabi.
It has a weird vibe, the layout of the pool and lounge area is quite odd and there are a lot of people who have nothing better to do than stare. Still least Molly gave them something good to look at as she frolicked with all the inflatables in the water.
The beach is very pretty, sections of the shore are filled with long boats which take people to nearby islands. You can see the limestone rocks jutting out of the sea and it makes me excited for our transfer across to Ko Lanta in a few days.
We happily sneak into a nearby hotel as it has a fabulously air conditioned kids room as well as a great pool full of slides and toys and adjacent playground. We had lunch there one day and Molly chowed down a huge fillet of fish and chips.
The heavens did open on one day, and nothing beats tropical rain – warm and refreshing. Most people ran for cover but we took it as an opportunity to cool off – Molly thought we were crackers and quite perplexed by our squeals of delight! There was also a beautiful lightning storm in the evening as we were walking home which reminded me of nights in Austria.
I managed to sneak in a massage – the best yet!!! Hurrah, I finally took one where it felt like a normal spa and not a brothel – well done Thailand! Hoping to for one more before we come home!
We’ve really enjoyed our time in Ao Nang yet can’t quite believe how close we’re getting to home time!!
