the fair was as usual, crowded with people despite the kempen berjimat during this economic downturn ehehe. we didnt book anything as the given travel period mostly by Sept 09 (before next MATTA fair), and hell yeah our wedding is still a longgg way to shout about.
i've posted earlier about Krabi and to our surprise there were 2 big booths of Krabi tourism, bukan booth Thailand...tapi Krabi sahajeee haha. yelah all this while, the island always being outshined by the sister islands of Phuket or Koh Samui...sian dier hihi.
3hrs of walkthrough, kutip brochures and borak2 with travel agents. and finally, we found Krabi package we're looking for.
total rm500 nett for 3 nights stay at 4-stars Pavilion Queen's Bay Krabi! Without promo, rm300-500++ per night for superior room, bley?? if u need extra night, just add rm180 p/nite. and good news for honeymooners, for same price they'll give you complimentary upgrade to Suite. honeymooners sahaja. babymoon tak bley hihi.
and if you manage (talking about IF) to get AirAsia's zero ringgit tix, total with tax etc just about rm263 for return flight p/pax.
so, rm500 + (rm263x2) = kire sendiri.
for additional excursion,
- phi phi island trip rm180 (i sound dier dulu i pegi rm100 je, last2 dier kate ok haha)
- 4 islands ( tup + poda + chicken island + phranang cave) rm100
- hong island rm120
- krabi rainforest rm120
- kayaking rm90
- elephant trekking 2 hrs rm90
- James Bond island discovery rm180
rate above are published rate & still NEGOTIABLE, if only you book with hotel itu la.
brochures can be deceiving! as i'm home, i google the hotel & review at tripadvisor.com. some rate it ok while some had bad experience, well lumrah lah. the thumbs down about this hotel (from review) - expensive food & ongoing renovation nearby. not by beachside, but still walking distance to Ao Nang beach. malas sgt, naik lah tuk-tuk. tepuk dada, tanya selera & tanya poket juga kalau nak sume yang first class, kan.
p/s : agak2 thn depan construction tu dah setel ke..? haha. spoil la honeymoon ni ade bising2 kan?
