After breakfast at hotel, checkout at 9am and continue our journey to Phuket, about 300km from Trang.

During our last trip to Krabi, we stop by a very famous honey roasted pork coffee shop in Trang, we decided to drop by before  leaving for Phuket.

Unfortunately, the shop is not open because owner’s mother is sick ( see how women can dig out so much information in a short chat ). Luckily the stall selling the authentic teochew moon cake is open. It cost about RM4 per pc.TrangMoonCake (3)TrangMoonCake (2)

Always buy some food when you are traveling as you will never know when is your next stop for food.TrangMoonCake (1)

We reached Krabi about 11am, since it is still early we decided by drop by Tiger Cave temple again.

Continue our journey and having lunch at this Cabbages and Condoms Restaurant along the main road to Phuket.LocalFood (2)

The restaurant is directly facing the main road, the decor and environment is clean and comfortable.LocalFood (3)

Fried rice with Crab Meat in Star shape. The outlook is nice but not as good as the one we had yesterday at Trang.  I noticed we had this popular, cheap and delicious food almost every meal whenever we are in Thailand, I guess because it is fast and all kids like it. In Thai, it is call ” Khao Pat Poh “.LocalFood (1)

Finally, reach Phuket at 5pm. We stayed at Patong Resort Hotel costing about RM110.00 per night. Room is spacious and clean. Location is strategically located in the middle of Patong beach and walking distance to beach, shopping and the famous Bangla road.  You can book the hotel HERE.PatongResortPatongResort1
