In the morning we rent a scooter and head out of annoyingly touristy Ao Nang. We take in lots of nice scenery as we ride west out to wards the coast.
We stop at a couple of interesting looking piers. We climb up the dodgy ladder on the smaller pier and take a walk to the end. We see fishermen in the water and on the pier. They all say hello.
We ride as far as can west, and then head back to Ao Nang for a swim. Strangely the water is very shallow and it’s not the best beach we’ve visited on this trip, but it was still fun.
We stop at an impressive temple.
We then head into Krabi town. It’s much less touristy than we expected, and fairly quiet as it’s a Sunday. We find a mobile phone shop and by a Thai Sim card. We have a quick look around and head back towards Ao Nang.
We take a different road back and drive down to the Fosil site. It’s a lovely spot, but it does look like the fossils are infact shells set in concrete. But, I’m no geologist, so it’s probably authentic.
Once again on the way back to Ao Nang we stop at the market, which turns out to be a little gem of photos opportunities and we even buy a few supplies. It’s not the sort of place tourists visit and get many friendly smiles from the local Thais.
Back at Ao Nang we return the scooter and book boat trips to Ko Phi Phi for tomorrow.
