Krabi Trip: Day One

On April 16th, we woke up around 6am to freshen ourself up for the trip. Too bad that since it still in Songkran long holiday, none of the food seller show up for us to grab a quick bite before heading to the airport so we just hailed a taxi to DonMueng airport.

The airport looks quite empty this early in the day, but there were still a fair number of people waiting for their flight. This times my mom booked the flight with Nok Air, one of the low cost airways in Thailand. The plane seems to be older model with two engines and two 3 seats row. The plane ride was uneventful, they serve nothing (as expected from the low-cost flight) but you can order snacks and souvenirs from the flight attendants.

Around 11:30am we arrive at Krabi airport, and we gets to go through the new terminal. It was quite a pretty terminal with grey, silver, and marble color scheme. My mom had arrange for the hotel to pick us up at the airport and the driver was waiting for us. Our hotel for this trip is 'Krabi Resort' in Ao Nang area, which is said to be the first resort in Ao Nang. It has a beach front as well, although the water was not 100% clear it still nice to look at. Our first day in Krabi was spend settling in our hotel and a bit of swimming in the swimming pool. And then it's time for dinner.

After dinner, I was too tired to go out to explore the area so I went to bed. And to my horror, I share a room with my younger brother and he friggin' snore! You see... I have a rather long sleep latency and that is a big problem when add that the snore. After about six hours or so I woke up with full bladder, I used the toilet and then have problem back to sleep because of the snore. And then it's day two.
