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......!
