superb post ahpek99 smile can't wait to reach there smile btw, any news on the road condition yet?

Hi Neuvo, we rent a 7 seater car to travel Tiger Caves and Emerald pool, we have no problem on road closure due to flooding incident. Hence, if you have a group of 6 people, you can rent a car is better idea.

Re: Krabi floods and landslides

cool bro! thanks for the tips though we decide to take flight to bangkok since there are no guarantee that the road in surat thani can recover anytime soon. smile

Re: Krabi floods and landslides

Hi, I've been in Aonang since yesterday, April 4th and there is no trace of any rain or flooding. What we have observed is as follows:
- it's really hot!
- folks are out on the beach and lots of boats are going out to the islands as usual
- restaurants, stalls, bars and supermarts seem fully stocked and operating as usual
- pharmacies, clinics and all the usual stuff that a pregnant mommy like me would be looking for are operating as usual and there are quite a few of these on Ao Nang's main street

I'll upload some photos if someone could teach me how to do so.

Re: Krabi floods and landslides

I will go there on 12th April 2011 and stay at Aonang Buri Resort , this hotel is at nopparattara Beach .
Is this place still flooding ??? anyone can help me ?

Re: Krabi floods and landslides

gojira,

Thanks for the "eye witness" report :-) Unfortunately you can't upload pictures directly to our site, you will need to upload them to your web host (e.g. Flickr, Photo Bucket, Facebook etc.) then post a link to them, between img tags like this [ img ] link [ / img ] (leave out the spaces) so they show up in your post.

Hope you are enjoying your stay! Still lovely, warm and sunny here people!

I've walk along ao nang beach and nopparat thara beach. There is no flood at this area/beach. Previously i've survey on Aree Tara hotel which located at nopparat beach, i just pass by this hotel 2 days ago. They are operating as normal in fact. No worries if you decide to stay in Ao Nang beach or Nopparat Thara beach.

Hi Mei Kee, my 6D5N expenses is around RM1100 (11000 Baht) for inclusive of accomodation, island hopping/kayaking, all transportation, foods/drinks/miscellanous expenses. Do more reseach in advance will save you some money for others activities. smile

Re: Krabi floods and landslides

how's the weather now in Krabi? i'm going there on 27 April. Is it raining everyday?

Re: Krabi floods and landslides

The weather is great, hot, and sunny. Low season is approaching so its not as busy, the prices come down....ok maybe the occasional  thunder storm....Much better IMO.

Re: Krabi floods and landslides

Does that mean that there isn't anymore flood???

I was thinking of Island Hopping. Where would you guys suggest? I'll be staying in Aonang Beach.

Re: Krabi floods and landslides

Hi guyz, made arrangement earlier in Mar for my visit on 08th May '11 & will be staying at Krabi La Playa.
Glad to know that things going well there (back to norm). Can anyone assist / advise on "HALAL" food as we are Moslems. Cheers.

Re: Krabi floods and landslides

Krabi from 17-20 Apr. Sunny in the morning; great for island hopping & snorkle. Late afternoons humid, cloudy and light rain, Restaurants, shops, pubs and road-side stalls aplenty. Saw many muslims (headscarfs as cue) enjoying their meals by the roadside.
Kentucky, Macs, 7 Eleven, supermarkets all within walking distance in Ao Nang.
For those who are inclined to cancel their trip there because of the recent floods, please DON'T.  Proceed and enjoy as i did. Cheers
