This morning we let ourselves sleep-in a bit after minimal sleep on the overnight trip we got. Then we got our stuff organized to check out of our hostel, and went and got some breakfast at a street vendor. We are obsessed with the Thai pancakes (aka crepes) and their fruit shakes. We’ve gone to the one place in Koh Phi Phi almost every day we had been there that the people recognize us.
This afternoon we hung out on the beach, although it has been on and off raining the entire time. We then grabbed some pizza from a street vendor and headed to grab our bags to head to the pier and get our ferry to Ao Nang. There’s only 2 ferries that leave to Ao Nang, one at 10am that goes to Krabi then you need to transfer to a car/bus and for about $3 US more you can take the one at 3:30pm that goes direct to Ao Nang.
Once we arrived in Ao Nang, the tide was too far out for the ferry to go to the pier so we had to get on a long tail boat to bring us into the pier. We got on a random shuttle to our hostel, Havet House, which is a bit off the main strip but only about a 15 minute walk. Most stuff on the main strip looks like resorts.
We are in a 4 bed mixed dorm and our 2 roomies are a couple in their 50’s. Definitely not what we were expecting but entirely okay with it because they’ll be quiet roomies for tonight.
Once we were settled we headed for dinner. There’s a big indian influence here so many restaurants serve indian food. The restaurants are more expensive here too but we managed to find a relatively cheap place called, Maya Palace.
After dinner, we walked around the main area of Ao Nang which is much different than Koh Phi Phi. For starters there’s roads and vehicles, many more resorts, and tons of families with kids. I stopped and tried mango sticky rice for dessert, which wasn’t that amazing.
We’re now back at our hostel that has no power because there’s a power outage in Ao Nang. We were walking back and the whole street went pitch black! Thank god for our iphone flashlights!
