I just returned from a trip in Thailand. But not traditionally to Bangkok nor Phuket. I visited the islands of Krabi and Ko Lanta, with of course the motivation to attend one of my cousin's wedding in Ko Lanta.
Travelling was quite tiring for me because I had to fly from Perth and do little stopovers in Perth. By the time I got home to my apartment here in WA, I pretty much crashed.
Anyway, the trip was nothing I had in mind but the wedding made it worthwhile. It is always beautiful to share in someone's special day and to watch the love on their faces for one another.
Thailand is beautiful as a country but somehow I didn't quite get that impression during this trip to be honest. Anyhow, there are always positive moments in every vacation.
Below are a few photos that I really liked throughout my trip. A bit jumbled up but hopefully the captions help.
the gorgeous sky during the wedding ceremony at Ko Lanta.
My pretty awesome villa at Aonang, Krabi.
Yummy Thai Iced Tea and the staple for every Thai vacation diet, Chang Beer - at Emerald Pool, Krabi.
The wedding destination and resort where we all stayed at - Ko Lanta
Looks yummy? A restaurant by the pier at Ko Lanta
The private villas view with an amazing limestone backdrop
from the hotel reception at Aonang, Krabi.
The Hot Spring at Krabi
Wedding table setting. Gorgeous array of flowers and the vibrant colours are amazing against the white decor and beach backdrop.
My obsession, pad thai. I have it everyday, about twice.

Best Tom Yum soup during the trip, at Cook-Kai, Ko Lanta
Amazing?! I had to pay 200 baht. pffft.
to see green moss and algae which gave the water the green colour, no thanks.
Their hospitality is pretty amazing.
The amazing reception at another resort at Aonang, Krabi
Aonang beach...much better than what you can find in Singapore but I would very much like to stick to my Aussie beaches. Thank you.

Sunset at Ko Lanta.
The wedding cake. I mean, how does one even find macarons in Ko Lanta?!?!?!

And of course the beautiful set-up.
Will I return? Most probably not. But perhaps I will with friends or a lover. But its definitely not a family kind of holiday. well, not with my wacky family at least. hahhaa since if I go there, I know all I wanna do is to read a good book, lay on the beach or by the pool and do nothing. But then again, I can do that all here...hmmm.
