Today’s drive was a comfortable 150km journey from Phuket Mai Khao Beach to Krabi Ao Nang. This felt so leisurely compared to our other legs and we were able to thoroughly enjoy the wonderful scenery around us. Take a look at the video we took of part of our journey : Video Footage of Drive from Phuket to Krabi
We stopped for lunch at KFC at a petrol kiosk in Phang Nga, and after that it was an hour long drive to Krabi.
The rocky hills in this area come in such weird and wacky shapes and sizes and very different to what we see elsewhere.
The route is also much improved from last year. Although some portions were still under construction, all the devastating potholes were gone and we had a comfortable smooth ride the whole way through, mostly on dual carriageways.
Upon arriving at the outskirts of Krabi, we dropped by the Tesco Lotus outlet for some shopping. I bought myself some disposable contact lenses to replace the spectacles I lost yesterday because of my waltz with the waves at the beach. We also replenished our supplies of groceries.
We then arrived at our hotel the Ibis Styles Krabi Ao Nang at around 3.30pm.
