Originally I was thinking of avoiding Thailand because of it’s reputation as a party backpacker kind of place, a culture which I never got into. However I knew that was narrow minded of me and the country likely had a lot of other things to offer travelers who aren’t into the party scene. I managed to find a cheap flight, I think about $80, from Mumbai to Bangkok. So off I went to Thailand.
I debated for a while over whether to go to the north of Thailand for the mountainous feel or the south for the beach vibe. In the end I chose the southern beaches because I had been missing the beaches back home in California and I just wanted to find a place to unwind near the ocean after a tiring 2-3 weeks in India. I chose the city of Krabi, which is a city on the coast of Thailand’s southern arm, that does not have the same party beach reputation that Pattaya/Phuket has. Here are some photos and stories from my 5 days in Krabi, Thailand.
