Krabi: Shopping Review

You will get bored reading my blog for the next whole month because I'll be updating about Krabi, where almost everybody went there already. Hehe.

The next thing I loved most about Krabi is shopping, apart from massage (will review about it later). Eventho the scene is practically nothing compared to Bangkok and people knew that Thailand is actually the cheapest and most affordable option for shopping, I still think Krabi is great. Maybe because of its ambience or you really have nowhere else to shop, so the only option that you have here is quite a bargain.

As mentioned, both hotels that we stayed in are situated in the heart of Ao Nang shopping strip so spending your money everyday is easy. Because Ao Nang is a beach area, so most of the shop sells almost the same thing and clothes are very beach-friendly, if you know what I mean. Singlets, bikinis, t-shirts, dresses, all those skimpy outfits are aplenty here. They are pretty and absolutely cheap. If you're good at bargaining, then you'll be happy here.

Just a quick example. A t-shirt should be around THB1500 or RM15 only. Please bargain until you can get that price. For dresses, the average price should be around THB2000-3500 or RM20-30 only. If they cannot lower their price tag to that extent, please pretend to walk out of their shop and they will eventually agreed to your price. Haha. Just bear in mind, bargain rightfully and sensible. A piece of clothes should not exceed RM50. Okay darlings?

I bought block magnets for colleagues at office, stuffs for my bridesmaids, t-shirts for family members and pashmina for female relatives. I bought a lot and totally forgot the total damage but I knew they are cheap. A pashmina only costs RM15 per piece. So does the t-shirt. Cheap aite?

Krabi is a small town. The biggest malls here are just Tesco Lotus and Big C which is practically nothing and shouldn't be bothered. By big I meant just as big as Tesco outlets here in Malaysia. That's all. They have a factory outlet too, about 6km from the airport. But the stuffs there are still expensive, and you can give it a pass. Nothing can beat those factory outlets in Bandung. The town is a little crowded tho, not my type. So it's best to stay put in Ao Nang for all the hype and scene.
