Safe to go Krabi now?

by owlet

My bf and I have booked our air tickets and accommodation for a week long holiday in Krabi from 21 Sept - 27 Sept 2008.

However, with the recent events happening in Thailand which led to the closure of Krabi airport and most recently Bangkok being declared the state of emergency today, we are concern if it is safe for us to continue with our travel plans to the island in 3 weeks time.

Would really appreciate if anyone in this forum could advise on what is the current situation in Krabi and if there are still protestors rallying in the streets etc. and what would your general advice be if you are in our situation.

Thanks!!

There are reports today that PAD supporters blocked the front entrance to Krabi airport for a short while, then moved to City Hall. They also threaten to block some main roads in Krabi province. A nationwide strike by public sector and transport workers is called for tomorrow. What the situation will be like on 21 SEptember is impossible to predict. In Bangkok, the situation is very volatile, and is best avoided.

Even though your trip is a fair while away, I'd suggest you contact your embassy / foreign office.

Travel Tips for Krabi

Fertility Cave

by GracesTrips

As a local described this, a princess needed to bear a child. So, a shrine was made to help her. The shrine located on Phranang Beach in Railay west is filled with many phallic objects. It's not such an interesting sight. Seems rather out of place on the beautiful, tropical looking beach.

Sunset by the beach

by Jez79 about Beach bars

Ton Sai beach offers a fantastic view of the sunset. A great way to enjoy this is from one of the many bars along the beach. Drinks and food are cheap, the view is great, and the atmosphere superb. Two of the bigger bars are the Freedom Bar, at the Rai Lay end of the beach, and the Dream bar, at the other end. All the ones in between have something to offer too. At peak time it's not uncommon to have a beach party, the location of which alternate each night. Keep an eye out for signs and specials. You may also be invited to happy hour, which is this case usually refers to pot and not alcohol. I suspect this is largely why many of the bar staff (and some of the punters) are so relaxed. Anything goes - but generally very casual. Shoes are optional.

fresh fruit shakes

by j-san about roadside

Amazingly delicious! My favorites were pinneaple and also watermelon. The coconut one was far too sweet and I had to water it down! You choose what kind you want, the lady chops the fruit up in front of you, throws it in a blender with some ice (clean ice, trucked in everyday!!) and a lil syrup, then in about 30seconds its done. You can stand there and drink it from a glass, but mostly its poured into a little plastic bag with a straw and you walk away with it. I had several a day, 20baht each. You can also buy your fresh pinneaple or watermelon for 10baht each here too.

Wat Bang Riang

by zrim

No trip to Thailand would be complete without a visit to a Buddhist temple. This temple is only 75 years old and is supported by the Thai Royal family. We had the temple grounds almost to ourselves and spent a fascinating couple hours exploring the site.

Hong Island kayaking Paradise Island Snorkeling

by Waxbag

We booked a tour through @rt Canoeing to visit three The island is a strange shape with enormous limestone cliffs winding in a manner to create aquamarine lagoons with white sand beaches. From the beach on the south side of the island we kayaked for 1 ? hours completely around the island. The most interesting part of the island is large ?hong? on the islands interior. We kayaked through a narrow passage surrounded by massive cliffs. Once inside the walls a large light green lagoon awaited us. We kayaked around the shallow waters exploring water caves and the mangroves as well as the starfish studded bottom. After a Thai style lunch we hopped back in the long tail boat and visited Paradise Island. This is a small island with only a narrow strip of beach bound by tall craggy limestone cliffs. The powdery white beach leads into azure waters. We snorkeled into the clear water and explored the reefs that hang on the steep cliffs next to the island. The reef is healthy and full of spiny urchins, sea anemones, sea cucumbers, and a plethora of alien looking plants. The sun?s rays were amplified by the plankton in the water and penetrated the inky depths of the sea that disappears below a vertical wall of rock and coral. The vertical reef supports a massive amount of plants and animals that grow to gigantic sizes and stretch horizontally across below me. At one point I found myself three feet from a sea snake on the surface of the water getting air. Out of the water I couldsee its head and needle-like eyes as I remembered a Steve Erwin show about how deadly but harmless these snakes are. After several moments of watching, the snake had its fill of air and swam vertically out of sight propelling itself with its flat tail. On the way back to the beach I nearly ran into a jelly fish the size of my head and the color of cotton candy.
