#KeKrabi September 2015

Aonang Beach
Aonang Beach September 2015

#KeKrabi is an all-girls trip. We wanted a room that can fit all 3 of us and that somewhat limited our accommodation options.

   In Krabi, we pooled some of our cash and assigned each one of us to be in charge of either transportation, meals or hotel & tour. So the budget I'll share is approximate, average of 3 pax except for spa, shopping & souvenir- that was my personal spend.

  I topped up 100 THB on the SIM I got in Phuket and purchased the Happy Internet 400MB at 59THB/week. The girls used either WiFi at hotel/restaurant/massage parlour or my Personal Hotspot to get connected.

RM1166 per person (including flight, accommodation, transportation, tour, meals & attraction)

Cash brought to Krabi 6500 THB, changed another 2000+ THB in Krabi (slightly better rate). Only flight paid, accommodation paid in cash in Krabi.

Actual Expenditures

Accommodation - 1375 THB
Transportation - 650 THB
Meals - 870 THB
Attractions & Tours - 1317 THB
Spa, Souvenirs & Shopping - 2828 THB

Cash balance 1460 THB

Feel free to use the itinerary as guide when you plan your own. I didn't go to Phi Phi Island and didn't take the 7 Islands Tour because I hate speedboat and didn't want to spend a whole day at sea during rainy season. The 7 Islands Tour ended at night and sea can be choppy by then.

  Check the season and weather forecast before you go and plan accordingly. Book in advance the trip(s) you want to go to on the arrival day bcoz the tours usually leave in the morning. You can gamble and arrange own transportation like how we did for Emerald Pool. Just get some idea on the price & negotiate.

  As you can see, we spent a lot on spa & shopping so if you want to save, you can look at cheaper accommodation and don't go shopping :p but please don't miss the massage because how often can you get a GOOD full body/foot massage for less than RM30 in Malaysia?
