Traveling to Thailand this year was the highlight of my summer. Our flights were peaceful and we arrived in Krabi on the first day well rested and ready for adventure. Our hotel, Aonang Beach Resort, was the perfect location, with an amazing pool and a spa inside so we didn't even have to leave to enjoy our thai massages. Our first night we spent exploring the downtown area near the beach. Our hotel was located in a nice central area surrounded by great restaurants which made it easy to access the market area. The second day we visited the Emerald Lagoon and Hot Springs. The Emerald Lagoon was fun for all ages even those who were not strong swimmers. Hot Springs were like sitting in a giant hot tub, and our tour guide was experienced and resourceful. The lunch that was provided was spectacular, even though we had many different tastes and dietary needs. The third day we took a speed boat ride to Phi Phi and Bamboo Island. Even though we encountered some stormy seas, our captain knew exactly how to maneuver and get us to the islands safely. On day four, we watched an elephant show and rode elephants up and down a steep cliff. Our tour guide, Jackie showed us the best sights, fruits and food. Then we took a plane ride to Bangkok. Our hotel in Bangkok, Centara Watergate Hotel was beautiful. It offered a gorgeous view of the city from all angles and had perfect proximity to all the local shopping places. The breakfasts served each morning were amazingly worldly, providing each of us our favorite breakfast foods and more. We had to leave early for a tour one day and they sent boxes of breakfast foods for each of us.The next day, we visited tiger temple, floating market and the bridge over the river kwaii. The tiger temple and floating market were tons of fun, even with a large group of people. The last day we did some shopping, visited the marble temple and headed home. For our transportation, we were provided with two full sized, spacious vans. Even when we were soaking wet from the lagoon or covered in sand from the beach, we were always welcome in the van and it was always cleaned up for the next tour. Our drivers were courteous and knowledgeable and there was always room for everyone. We were able to play our own music during the trip as well which made it even more fun. Overall it was a wonderful trip that was extremely well organized by Christe's. I would definitely recommend it to others.
