Krabi, Thailand

I finally got around to blogging the part of our Thailand trip that we spent in Krabi. It was unreal. Gorgeous beaches, perfect weather, amazing food, it couldn’t have been better. We pulled into our airbnb to find and it totally exceeded our expectations. We were staying in a little bungalow resort just of the coast. We were a short scooter ride from Ao Nang beach where there was lots of shopping and an amazing night life. There was also a darling Thai couple, Bob and Meaw, that took care of everything we needed and were so kind! Airbnb is definitely the way to travel and if you haven’t tried it yet, we totally recommend! Just make sure you read the reviews šŸ˜‰

Shout out to Rad Swim for this darling suit! The material is so soft and super durable. It was one of my favorites from this trip!

Long Tail Boats

Our first day in Krabi we rented a long tail boat that took us to four different islands. The beaches were beautiful and the water was so warm. After we stopped at the last island we jumped off the boat and went snorkeling, it was amazing! There were so many moments during this trip that I just felt so lucky to be in Thailand with Trent.

Discover Scuba- Scuba DivingĀ 

The next day we went Scuba diving! Trent and I aren’t certified yet so we were able to do a discover scuba class where we don’t go as deep. It was an incredible experience! Our first dive was a simple dive to help us get to know the equipment and the feeling of everything. It was amazing! I always thought that I would be too scared to scuba dive but everything went so smoothly that there was Ā nothing to be afraid of. Our instructor was a darling girl from Thailand who is an amazing diver. She told us about all her cool experiences and she made us want to get certified and dive all the time.Ā For the second dive we went through a cave under an island and it was incredible! I got a little sketched out when I saw some jellyfish in the water but our instructor and Trent were both right next to me so I was totally fine. It’s hard to express how amazing it feels to be standing on the ocean floor looking up at the light breaking through the surface and thousands of fish swimming around you. There is nothing like it.

Tiger Cave Temple

Our last day in Thailand we decided to go to Tiger Cave Temple. When we left the house the cute Thai couple warned us that it looked like rain, little did we know that we were about to get completely drenched, haha. Trent and I got soaked as we road through the streets of Thailand. It was epic and totally hilarious. Tiger Cave Temple sits on the top of a tall mountain, once we reached the base of the temple we began the climb. We heard that it was an intense hike but we had no idea what we were in for. We climbed over 1,200 steps and not just your average stairs, they were huge. We were dying by the time we reached the top. It was definitely worth it but just be aware that it is a serious climb. The top of the temple was breathtaking. The view was unreal! We could have stayed up there for hours! Hiking down was an adventure because we had the monkeys to deal with. They were everywhere! One monkey pulled an earring out of a girl’s ear! They weren’t afraid of people at all and I was terrified. Trent eventually got me to warm up to them and we were able to feed them some bananas and they sat on our laps. It was amazing.
