Krabi, Thailand (Super Star Libra Cruise) - My Solo Cruising

Up from bed, shower, breakfast and all that, broadcast news  (Super Star Libra - My Solo Cruising) came flashing for informing us that  we must gather in our respective groups and in the allocated sections for the different shore excursions we have opted for. I think, maybe, there’s two or three options, I am really unsure, mine was Krabi sightseeing. Off to the particular section, I stood among the rest of the people for the briefing on the do’s and don’ts from this point of time. Passport must be with us, we must board into ship at the stipulated time and if we want to prolong our leisure, the last boarding call is by 9.00pm. For me, it 's rather simple actually. As long as I stick with my tour group, all should potentially be fine (Halong Bay Cruising).  

Once briefing was over, we were akin let loose from our cages for getting down from ship, followed by boarding the boat. Duh! Unbelievable! Those India coming Indians I tell you. So barbaric. They wouldn’t stop pushing, upon getting into boat, reserving seats for only god knows, whether for their love ones, or lovers or side keeps. Never mind if they were small size, the one I sat beside, almost caused me claustrophobia. Some too wouldn't put their big ass down. Restlessly walking up and down, whereas others took up all the space near the windows. Basically statue standing. Regardless, once boat moved further and further, they calmed down whereas the window takes just won't budge. throughout the whole journey. I still somehow managed to squeeze my vision for admiring the outside scenic and water waving views (Fremantle - Perth). Came to getting down at Krabi, because I was practically pushed aside and I also took some pictures, by the turn around to look, almost everyone had disappeared

Panic struck.Yet gripping my composure, I quickly walked. Life hit bounced back once I noticed the Krabi sign on the coach. This is mine. Yes, confirmed. Up into the coach, we were greeted by the matured and pleasant lady tour guide who did her job well by explaining Krabi's background, prior to us arriving for the Krabi King Cobra Snake Show (Chonburi & Pattaya - My Solo Trail). Snake? Yes snake. Luckily the batch of people who were in my group were not the Indians. Otherwise? I think ruckus. Show started, snaking what else. All sorts of snake man and snake stunts simultaneously. Was I terrified? Maybe a tiny bit. Did I enjoy this show? Pass.

We then adjourned to the another section for Monkey Show. Monkey business. Obedient monkeys. Well trained and adhering to their master’s rope, these charming and adorable cuties made me happy.  In fact, monkeys were far out more entertaining compared to snakes (Ayutthaya Thailand).
Show time over, we left for Giant Catfish Farm while heavy rain mercilessly trended at the back and in front of us. Really heavy. Fitting into the plastic raincoat, which didn’t do much justice, we walked within this nature farm and at the river or pool or whatever you call it, the white lady threw meat pieces for luring the Giant Catfish. Sadly, Giant Catfish wouldn't emerged. Instead the tiny cat fish were the ones hopping for the meat. Blame it on the rain according to the white lady, we had to leave. 

Time out and time in for lunch at the garden paradise setting Thai restaurant. I can’t tell you the name, maybe its one of those Thailand’s non friendly English tourism, food and the serene, cool and nature surrounding ambiance must be praised.
Hunger settled, we journeyed to Tiger Cave Temple (Wat Thum Sua). Obviously, as the name suggests, it must be the significance of tiger and cave right? Of course. Tiger which took shelter in this cave for the longest time, but once monks wrecked its peace, tiger bolted forever. What else is there in Tiger Cave Temple (Angkor Wat Siem Reap)?

Gods statues and steps leading higher up. Since our stop-clock was only for half an hour,  I have forgo climbing. I did one full round within the surrounding, including at the altar, before heading to the next and finale for the day at Krabi beach. Dead! Literally dead. Except for a small number of tourists, unfortunately no bikini free show, neither boozing or wild behaviors. Maybe because it’s the off peak season, I actually preferred it, I walked along the road till as far as I could for finding out what's in store in Krabi. Eateries, retail outlets, tour agents and hotels. Another hour still to kill, I grabbed a drink and sat at the bench for wailing my time away.  Was Krabi a winner for me? Neh. Unless you are a party animal or you want to immerse in Krabi water or you have other plans up your sleeve, you will be utmostly satisfied.   

End of Krabi shore excursion, back to ship, free flow of dinner, live performance and bed time.
