Ok. Ok. This is boring but we too, have been eyeing Krabi for our honeymoon destination. Haha. It looks like we'll be jumping on the bandwagon like Sha, Sab and Ashylla too.
Why Krabi? Good question.
First and foremost, I was influenced by the reviews from our newly-wed bloggers yang bertiga itu. They did a good job in writing a review about Krabi and I, being a sucker for anything beach, falls for it. See, I am easily influenced.
Second, budget. I like beach so much. I did survey local islands like Redang, Perhentian and those in Sabah too. They are heavenly, especially in Sabah. But they are insanely expensive. We don't have so much left after the wedding, and these places are waaayyyy beyond our budget. After considering the accomodation rates, transportation, expenses and all, we decided travelling abroad is cheaper than travelling to your own islands in Malaysia. No offense but I was surprised, mighty shocked you know, to find that the place has grown up to be expensive where once upon a time it was very laid-back and affordable.
Third, season. Yes. Our wedding is in October 24th. Two days after that we'll be leaving for honeymoon, insya-Allah. Most of the resorts and chalets on the islands will be closed during this time for monsoon period. Krabi saja la yang available because it's not an island. I love beach but not to the extent of spending the whole time diving and snorkeling aje. Or at least when it's raining in Krabi, we can go for massages and hibernating in the room.
I did some research on the accomodation at Krabi, mainly at the AoNang area. And then I fell in love with these two places.
Psst!!! Are you coming to the gath this Saturday? I have to pass tho. Would love to meet you pretty ladies in person but time is constricting me from doing so. We'll meet next time then. Ah, aku jeles ni!
