Approaching the Island

Thu 29th September 2011

The islands waters are so shallow a second speedboat picked us up to take us inshore. We’re staying on Long Beach, one of the bigger beaches on the island.

I think we are going to like this island. It’s like a travel brochure only it’s real! Amazing! I think I may melt slightly as it’s 80%+ humidity. Oh well it could be worse!

I like this shot, it’s like something out of The Pirates Of the Caribbean!

 

Water taxis

We quickly came to realise that these boats are our only way off the island and a means of taking us to partake in  snorkelling or turtle chasing.

Welcome to Krabi!

Thu 8th September 2011

Our tour leader Amy sorted out an airport pick up for us and sure enough he was waiting for us when we landed in Krabi.

Another big thank you to Amy our tour leader for arranging the taxi at Krabi airport. Made the day a lot less stressful as it’s quite easy to get ripped off in Thailand by taxi drivers!

Pink taxis? Only in Bangkok!

Sun 7th August 2011

Today we were treated to a truly authentic Bangkok experience. A ride from the airport in a pink taxi. After the long flight it was great fun to see how the locals do it, spoilers and all.

Matt says...

Hooray! Finally made it. With the long flight over time for a relaxing journey into Bangkok. Or maybe not; what with no seatbelts in the back seats, taxi man on his mobile and no holds barred driving, it as a bit of an eye opener!

Mr taxi man was nice though. Look at the smile on his face. Must be because he drives a metallic pink coloured taxi!

Claire says...

Wow, that was a long old flight. And after being squashed for nearly 11 hours, it made the ride in a fluorescent pink taxi all the more enjoyable. In Bangkok, apparently they don’t wear seatbelts and our driver even posed for us before he sped off into the mad evening traffic.
