Gung Ho to Ao Nang

Day 100 - Okay, I am sure I'm now in Thailand as when I ordered American Fried Rice for breakfast, it was not a problem. It has an interesting history and can even be found on Wikipedia.

Yay.  American-Fried Rice for Breakfast

Jay had a traditional English breakfast which is weird as I can't remember the last time I saw him eating a sausage. As soon as we finished, we walked to the 7/ll where the Baht-buses load passengers. I explained a little about them yesterday.

Going by Bhat Bus

We were headed to Ao Nang Beach. It is only around 18 kilometers but normal taxis charge a lot. The rate for our method cost Thai ฿50, or around $US 1.60 each for one-way travel. We got off right at the beach.

And, We're Done!

Weather's Great.  Wish You Were Here

Perhaps Not So Many of You

We stayed at the beach for a few hours and walked up to the main tourist avenue when it was time for lunch. After eating Cashew Chicken and Pad Thai, we waited for the return Baht-bus right in front of the restaurant.

Later, at around sunset, we walked to the main temple in Krabi town. It sits on a hill looking down on the main part of the city. Today was an auspicious day as it was the full moon. In Buddhism, it is a day of worship. In fact, the restaurants were not servicing alcohol today, in respect for the religious day. It was picturesque.

Buddha is the Center

In fact, the whole day was a treat for the eyes. Tomorrow, perhaps we'll hike a mountain or something!
