Review: My first Thai BKK-Chiang Rai-Chiang Mai-Phuket-Phi Phi-Krabi. The day of the 15th.
For 200 baht taxi boat took us to the Marina. When boarding the ferry, we put red stickers and we swam.
At the port of Krabi a pretzel suggested a taxi, but I proudly said that we have paid for the transfer. He pointed at a red sticker on my shirt and said that there is no Shuttle service we have. Then drew our attention to the coming people with blue stickers. Here they transfer paid! I don't believe you, I said. What he resentfully: why? As it turned out, in vain I hurt a friend. Went to the taxi rank and buses. Free one to carry does not want. Then we finally realized that with the Shuttle we were cheated, although I have read on the forum that for 250 baht and to deliver Phi Phi via Krabi town to AO Nang. We were offered the choice of either going on a big bus do not remember for how much, or taxi for 400 baht. We opted for a taxi and after half an hour was at the reception Anawin Bungalow (1000 baht). Thank you Huck(brother of Chuck) for the tip.
Much was written about these bungalows. Ismail was not, went home to Morocco. But it was his partner, the Frenchman Jules. Apologized for now there is no space, and our jeep took us to the large guest across the street from McDonald's, saying that tomorrow we will pick up our things and prepare for us the Bungalow. Gest was worth the same thousand. Not very much. Great building and a lot of people. Eating at McDonalds (the same garbage as we do), went to the beach, good 5 minutes walk. Immediately go left through the monkey trail. Hanging signs: do not feed the monkeys - dangerous to health (as I understand it for our own, rather than monkey-see also how to behave with monkeys, precautions). At the entrance to the beach security asked us to sign in the visitors ' Ledger, and warned me the hotel did not go. Some see great hotel. The beach is really cool, people do not. But beer do not buy on the grounds allowed. Here is a photo from the boat
On the way back we agreed with the boatman that for 2000 baht at 7 am, he will take us, and will carry on 4 Islands and then return to the beach Franang. Later, however, elicited another 200 on diesel to Mananga. Later I saw the cashier, quite officially, you can take a boat for 2400. In the evening walked along the waterfront. Woke up by annoying the Indians. Evening PI PI liked it a lot more. Evening Krabi than like Sochi. Probably because Russian was a lot.
Got up at six-thirty, left for Jules our things at the reception and went to our boatman. At 7 am Breakfast at Krabi impossible. Restaurants open at 7 30. In 7/11 bought some filthy sandwich and coffee. Sat down on a bench on the promenade, and then next to us sat some type. Was Russian from Krasnoyarsk. In Thailand for six months. Traveling on a bike. And che are you so white, they say. Yes, I'm on the beach is not selected. Been on the forum Vinsky, but it is something banned. On the Internet known under the name Pasha the cache. Tried to fish with us in the boat, to which I reasonably said that I had a boat entirely to us someone floated the third. Then I drew a boater. Pasha asked him to take a picture of us together on my camera.
I thought we'd sail straight off the beach, but the boatman, seated behind us on the bike, went somewhere to the right. Was there a large boat Parking. Then another went for gasoline. When sailed, it was already 8 am. Then I remembered that I forgot to ask about the fins (mask, I had my own). Our driver said it was garbage and pointed to the life jacket. Well, okay, I posnormal like a real Chinese, especially because the Snork is not very much. PI PI is much more interesting. On the island, Poda island, there were almost no people, so I managed to calmly pofotkatsya.
But this mess was on the floor when we left.
There we were again ripped off for 200 baht, and a smart-ass, the boatman asked for money to give him. I understand they have divided them with the local supervisors. The price tag on the island I've seen: 200 baht, so our driver did not disappoint. Good thing I thought to type with a beer. The island is a national Park, so alcohol is not sold. Then sailed on around the Islands.
He dropped us I do not remember which island.
The people there were full, hot and beer is not sold. Then Franang. The people of darkness. Looked at the cave of phalluses.
There's someone married.
We walked back to East Railay.
East Railay. Landing on the boat
In viewpoint led a dangerous path with rope to hold on to. Decided not to.
Back in the Bungalow of Jules. Cool but he has a Bungalow in the garden! The silence, the birds are singing. And not to say that next to a busy street. Asked: would Like us to tiger cave temple to get there? (this is where you have 1237 of stairs to overcome, a taxi costs 1500 baht). Take the bike, says. The way I see you on the map will show. Not, I answer. On vacation I like a drink and a drunk at the wheel do not sit down. Then, say, tomorrow at half past one I'm going to school to teach Thai language and I can deliver and then 2 hours back. Wonderful! Jules is already 4 years living in Thailand. First lived in Pattaya. There his Thai girlfriend beauty salon holds. Then moved to Krabi. All he likes, home to Marseille was not going. The parents themselves come to him. My question is, what about homesickness? He sang a verse of the Marseillaise and said, well, it nafig, I'm good here. The bungalows lived mostly Russian. My question is why he doesn't have a website, said that it is not necessary all the time full hotel.
Better here to ask questions, hardly anyone individually in PM you will advise. ...
So it is true, but there is an official circular and the statement by the police in the media that the national Wu international they do not recognize.

A couple of important news:

I believe that Tae is nothing remarkable about this and not go back so want. State in one or two at most times. So I never they are not particularly ill, and after a failed stay even more.

The beaches are crowded and you need to work hard to find a place where I will be able to retire. Fatty and spicy foods – heartburn was almost every day.
Hot. Tropical Paradise can only dream about – stuffy, very stuffy.

9908 bus departs from the public transport center. From what particular place is not exactly prompt, but there you will find, after all, PTC is quite small, and there are people behind the counter will tell me.
