Trang has always been the destination I wanted to visit
Why am I here to begin with? FOOD of course ... Trang town itself has enough for us to explore day and night.
Back in the day that it was only paper map and the joy of getting lost or getting better on reading the paper, Trang (ตรัง) was the destination I would love to visit. Here I was at Trang, and it won't be the last time for sure.
I have a wee startup and if you have one you will know how much it needs you to keep the door open! If you don't know, let me simplified it for you, startup it is like you having a babe and sometime you have to go to toilet with the baby in your arms. But thank God, I got to spend my time growing something I passion about and get to placed my niece bit to the world. I worked my ass off, I burned myself then one day I found myself waking up losting my passion.
May be time to take a break from everything and be with my sole?
"Now we have landing in Trang"
Here I am in the quite, prettiest and lively wee town. There was not much tourist, in fact I only saw a couple of foreigner in town. I forget to noted that there were not much of 7-elevent either. Until I need to get sanitary pate. And that made me felt event better with this town because it means local people have a better chance to grow their wee shop and the money cycle is healthier. However, getting good food and stuff never be a problem here. So we are good.
We planed the trip to be on January of the 3rd week of the month and that was the greatest decision. Because Andaman start to get goegous from the every end of December to late March or beginning of April. Meaning beautiful experience, check! And usually Thai people do not spend money on the 3rd week of the month. Meaning all for me, check! So you take our statergy and let us know how it goes.
Our first stay was at Baan Bussaba in Trang town. We do not want to rush through the boat to the island in the day we first land. Because we planed to take it slooooooooooow. And it wasn't a west. We checked in to Baan Bussaba where the owner was very nice and gave us an unforgettable suggestion on what to do in Trang. It was to do a day trip fishing the squid with long boat by local people. And I would like to thanks her for a very local and perfect suggestion this time.
So the next day we started our trip in the early morning and heading to Kho Kradan Island. We made the booking directly to the resort so that also come with the transfer package for 500 Baht for both a van and boat, back and forth. Which I think it was a good deal but if you are looking for a cheaper way then there is a public transportation where you can get the bus from the local bus station in town. But after asking local people who took that ride before they say it might take a more then half a day.
Stock your supply from the main land
Here we are at the quite, beauty, beautiful beach. We book for the front beach bangalo with Kho Kradan Beach Resort. And the white powder beach literally just in front of our boor step. We were there for 4 night. So first, let's talk about the island. It was clean, safe and quite for me. There were not much people in the morning and late evening. However, because just in front of the beach there is a good place to do snorkelling as well. So in the midday there were long tail boat, ferry and maybe speed boat came it with tourist. Plus, the food and drink price was a bit hight, well since everything was from the mainland so there is a transferring cost. The price for beer was like 30-40 Baht deferent and food was like 50-100 Baht deferent depend on what your order. Thanks to the owner of Baan Bussaba was warning us about that so we stock up our food enough for snacking for 4 days. However, when we got on to the transfer boat we met with the greater planner Korean family where they came with everything they possibly need. As I can see it was maybe 3 packs of beer in the cooler, packs of ready to eat food and instant noodle. Hmmm Maybe next time I might just pack beers with the cooler as well. About food, every resort serve food and drink so don't worry about it. We both have found a delicious food to please our tummy when we were on the island. My boyfriend is American so he said one of the place sever very nice sanwich where they claim they fresh bake their bread everyday. And I'm Thai manage to found good southern spicy food.
I think I was the only person who got cut from coral...WHY!!!
This was what my life craving of doing nothing just enjoy the wind and myself.
