Thankyou to everyone on Tripadvisor!!!!
We had a great first visit to Krabi and it was a change from the bar type atmosphere of Phuket.
Absolutely lovely place.
And thanks for the recommendation of the Mercure in Krabi it was just brilliant for the five nights.
They even provided a birthday cake for my wife which was totally unexpected.
We undertook the usual shopping, walking, food and beer, shopping walking food and beer.....and the people over there are just great and friendly.
We used Air Asia X to go from Melbourne to KL and then AA to Krabi.
As usual Air Asia X was brilliant and we decided to lashout and pay for the premium seats.
They must be doing something right as they were all full each way and I noticed the Air Asia X CEO was on the return trip in the seat next to us (going to the F1 in Melbourne).
Brilliant trip and again thanks to all Tripadvisor members who provided us with the usual advice.
Anyone who uses a travel agent these days (and not Tripadvisor) are just throwing their money away!!!!
