It looks like time is slowing down and we take this opportunity to progress in the education program of our children which is not always easy while they are rapidly distracted by all the new and exciting discoveries and scenery. We remember 5 months ago at the start of our adventure they screamed when they saw a little spider on the wall, so let it be if it would be creeping on their bodies....Today we saw ...
... snacks then ate at a restaurant in the beach. Both nights we have seen the sunset and we are loving being able to sit out in the evenings as its dry and warm. Booked our bus/boat ticket to langkawi in Malaysia for Wednesday so it's our last day in Thailand tomorrow ...
... licences or laws in Thailand ... Hmm!! The resort is lovely right on the beach our room is in an apartment style building just a bit back but still has a view to the sea. We just walked up the beach in the afternoon there are lots of bars and restaurants around. In the evening we watched the sun set and ate at our restaurant. Think it's going to be a nice relaxing few days ...
... often, sitting over my shoulder, cradled in my arms and at one point he tucked his wee head right under my chin... I was so close to taking him away with me. We have been deliberating so much on what to do. We have been planning on going to Koh Lipe tomorrow which is meant to be an amazing island 5 hrs south of Koh Lanta with Ellen and Hanna but it costs a bit to get to, we have heard its quite expensive and cannot find ...
It is almost undescribable what we have discovered in this region at less than 2 hours drive from busy Krabi and Ao Nang where we will go for a visit in the next few days. We still have good old souvenirs (in 2005) from our previous exploration in that area when Amelia was 2 years, we traveled by motorbike at that time and long distances were limited.
After a long and exhausted research to find a nice place to stay in Pak ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Anantara Si Kao Resort & Spa Sikao
We have just returned from spending Christmas and New Year at the Amari Trang and have had a wonderful time! The hotel is extremely quiet and relaxing and the staff cannot do enough to help you. Their English is fairly limited but they always have a smile on their face and if you ask them to do something, once they have understood, then it is done almost immediately for you.
We stayed for 2 weeks at the Amari Trang from the end of April until the beginning of May. The hotel was excellent, the staff exceptionally friendly, and our deluxe room had the most stunning view overlooking the huge limestone rocks that protrude from the sea. ( We were recommended by another Trip Advisor to choose rooms 301 - 316 which are on the west side of the hotel). The restaurant food we thought to be very good, especially 'Aqua' the Italian restaurant which is air-conditioned. We were astounded at how quiet the hotel was as I would say on average there were no more that 60 guests staying - one day there were only 29! For the two of us who were looking for peace and quiet and a total chill-out holiday, this was excellent and, if we used the pool ,we quite often had it to ourselves! The real downside was, as a few other trip-advisors have commented, the so called beautiful white sand beach, which didn't really exist. The main reason I go away is for the beach and the emerald seas - but most of the time the beach was covered in washed-up garbage (bottles, bags, crates etc) plus, as the hotel is situated right next to the estuary, there's masses of mangrove roots and branches floating around in the sea! The weather when we were there was perfect, very hot and virtually cloudless skies, so it wasn't as if it had been stormy and hence had recently washed up all this muck. It would be wrong to say you couldn't swim in the sea at all, but it was best to wait until the tide started to go out so that all the 'crap' was left on the beach - you definitely needed to wear shoes on the beach and in the water. In the end I was picking up pieces of broken glass and handing them to the hotel staff! It's such a shame as the beach stretches round a huge bay for probably a couple of kilometres and is lined with casuarina trees, so if it was clean - could be paradise. Please note that it is not the hotel that throws out the rubbish but probably the locals and the fishermen.
Just returned from a week at the Amari Trang and found it to be a mixed bag.
We have just returned from a week at the Amari Trang Resort and Spa.
If you are looking for a taste of unspoilt Thailand, then look no further. The Amari Trang has the most fantastic location for a peaceful and relaxing holiday.
My husband and I visted the Amari Trang in Oct 2004 when the hotel was just a few months old.
Trang was a perfect getaway from a hectic city - if you're looking for nightlife and excitement, look somewhere else. The hotel was amazing, especially for the price during the low season. (I got a promotion through their website for 100 USD /night)
My husband and I stayed at the Amari Trang - Apr this year (05). It was perfect. It is generally the way that Photos in the brochure do not live up to reality but this was not the case, the rooms, the facilities, everything was beautiful. The staff made the place even more special for us. It was quiet and we obviously chatted to the staff. They went out of their way to be sociable and ensure we got the best out of the trip. There is nothing better than listening and talking to the locals to find the best of the area.
A stunningly modern and stylish beach getaway
We came here for 2 weeks in August which is not the best time to travel to the South-West of Thailand (rainy season). The hotel is a stunning work of design. Clean, modern and minimalist and extremely reasonably priced given the high quality accommodation. The staff were very friendly and the food wonderful (4 restaurants to eat at).
Don't come here if you are after an action packed holiday though. There is nothing to do around Trang particularly and the hotel is very isolated. Perfect for us (we just like to read and relax) but others may get bored. The beach was pretty poor and not very clean, but we spent most of time by the pool anyway.
