Antler's 2014 Holiday in Thailand

Started on the Ao Nang forum and coming to this one, next......

Well, we will soon be there......

After months of planning and anticipation - and Trip Advisor resesrch - we fly from the UK to Bangkok this Friday, April 4th. After a few hours stopover, we are on an early afternoon Bangkok Airways flight to Krabi.

Transfer booked over the internet with KrabiShuttle.com - how efficient that was, too! A private transfer for the 4 us, in a Land Cruiser, or similar, with aircon - and possibly wi-fi! Destination: Red Ginger Chic Resort, Ao Nang for 5 nights.

After that, it's 5 nights on Koh Lanta, at Baan Rim Lay - reading all the fabulous TA reviews, I am really looking forward to meeting Mr & Mrs Pong!

4 nights at Sensimar Beach Resort, Khao Lak follows, with a final stay in Bangkok at Evergreen Place, before our flight back to the UK (let's not talk about that, just yet!)

So, right now, I am really looking forward to our first holiday in Thailand and am very grateful for all of your TA contributions that have helped Mrs A pull this together, along with efficient booking of accomodation, on this occasion through hotels.com.

Based on some reviews, we sent emails to all properties yesterday, asking for final confirmation of our bookings and overnight, they have all come back through positive - and with some lovely, welcoming messages.....

Which islands to hop around from Ao Nang?....dinner in the street markets?.....and will we find the Frog & Catfish (been studying their menu all winter!)? Soon to find out......

Speak to you from Thailand......!

Kind Regards,

Antler

Give Gary a call at the Frog& Catfish , he will arrange a taxi to collect you from your hotel and the fare is included in the bill at the end of your meal. Approximately 600 baht round trip. Tell him Phil & Wendy said Hi & see you in 7 weeks.

While you are in AoNang, You will many tour agencies in the street. Almost all of them arrange sea tours to 4-5 islands for around 450-500BHT per person. They will take you to Tub island (loved it), Chicken island, Koh Poda Beach, and Railay beach (that was my trip). You can also hop into Railay beach and spend your full day there enjoy eating meals from the small boats.

About the resturants, yoy will fibd many local resturants in the main street in AoNang. The food is really good. Dont miss Padthai, Thai green curry, Masuman curry, papaya salad, etc.

Have a good holiday.
