girls trip

Hey guys, I picked up on a few themes: Thailand + Not Much Travel from the airport.

Songkran starts 13/4 and typically goes for 3 days. Its loads of fun. Its optional. It’s everywhere, but you can escape!

Along with recommendations by my Thai friends (they said go to Krabi) I chose a few spots in Phuket (i think the north west or a small section in the far south are ok – patong and surrounds can get ugly).

  1. Krabi 7 days (1.5 hr drive from Phuket airport, or fly to Krabi intl airport)
    Spend some days doing things like:
    * Hotel hanging
    * Railay
    * Island trips
    * Emerald pool
    * Rock climbing
  2. Phuket 7 days
    Spend some days doing things like:
    * Hotel hanging
    * Phuket town (great food! cute shops)
    * John Gray Sea canoe trips – (come highly recommended)
    * Go to one of the floating restaurants
  3. Phuket 4 -5 days; offset cost of villa with few cheap days in phuket town or Koh Yao Yai (good old fashioned thai style island vibes)
    Boats go to Koh Yao Yai / Koh Yao Noi (35 minutes) from North West of Phuket (near where the villas are located)
    * Air BnB Villa hanging in Phuket during Songkran
    * Check out Phuket town
    * Check out north eastern beaches
    * Have a cocktail at one of the crazy resorts on the island’s south for sunset
    * Thai style relaxo bungalow on Koh Yao Yai / Koh Yao Noi
    * Island chill
    * Bike ride round the island
