The alarm went off at 4.55am. We had a taxi booked at 6am to get us to the ferry terminal for the 7am fast catamaran. There's a 7-11 at the terminal and we got some lovely toasted sandwiches there before getting on the ferry. It was still raining so the journey along the unsealed part of the road was an experience. With our breakfast in hand we …
... 6pm we thought we would make a dash for it and head up to the main street for some dinner. We ate in a dutch restaurant that was really cosy as it was decorated with fairy lights and lanterns – just what you need when it is raining hard outside. The food was really good!
We then wondered up the main street looking at various stalls and even stopped in a beauty place where Chris had a massage and Faye had a manicure. The rain had now stopped! ...
... tongues with swords and knives with blood running all down their chest, there were people walking who had swords through their cheeks and a ton of fireworks. This went on for hours and was really fascinating to see. We did a little research afterward and discovered this is called the Vegetarian Festival. They self-mutilate themselves to prove/demonstrate their faith in the gods and in return, the gods will heal their cuts and wounds.

Always good fun to imagine/make up stories about your fellow travelers.
Like the two grey haired older blokes in the line next to us. Both overweight and wearing matching short grey socks and crocks with kaki shorts. Ewww !
Im sure other people have the same fun imagining us and our "stories" as well.
Now waiting to fly to Krabbi via Bangkok.
So, Dum be ...
... no dramas and the in-boat movie was Sherlock Holmes 2, thankfully with correct subtitles. When we got off the boat we needed to check in with Thai Immigration and it went smoothly. Lucky was once again stunned at the ease of a border crossing.
A man recognising the stickers we had on ushered us into an office while we waited for other passengers to come. When everyone was there we were put in a pickup truck and were driven to the bus stop. As we boarded the bus we saw Lewis ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsAndaman Legacy Guest House Krabi
we booked a fan room via booking.com and were taken to the block at the back of the building. It was raining and there were leaks everywhere. Our room stank of damp, when opening the door to the bathroom we could see why - the entire ceiling was black with mould spores and bits of it were hanging down.
We'd paid for 2 nights as we'd checked in so felt a little trapped. We asked if we could see another room and the woman behind the desk was clearly pissed off with us, she was surly and rude. She showed us another room with an open shower - it was raining and the entire bathroom was 2 inch deep in water - imagine the insects!
She could tell we weren't too happy so offered us an 'upgrade' for 100B per night to one of the rooms in the newer part of the building. It was a huge improvement so we took it.
After staying in the room for 2 nights, we realised it was a little grubby - ripped bed spread, black marks on the sheets and a seriously scummy shower head. Also we only ever had a cold shower. We are budget travellers and have stayed all over and don't expect top notch for pennies....but manners and a clean room should be a given.
Would I recommend? Only for the location - I'm sure there are better places in Krabi.
