PERU HERE WE COME
KRABI (5 March – 7 March 2023)
Just an hour 40 minutes away from Changi, Krabi was a welcome change from the torrential rain for the past week in Singapore. Bright sunshine and heavenly blue skies greeted me as I touched down at Krabi. No time was wasted and a boat was hired (2000 bahts) at Chao Fah Pier to the mangroves to look for the Brown-winged Kf. My previous shot of this bird was a dismal encounter at Phuket.
I stayed at the Cliff Elegance Resort – a clean abode smack in the centre of the vibrant hub – yet away from the noise. For meals you may try Takola Restaurant (Ms Snon (0756209872) – a Thai – Chinese fusion to whet your appetite. I had succulent clams, minced pork soup infused with 5 spice powder, fried fish slices and cabbage and the delectable mango-sticky rice as dessert. The restaurant is situated in town (away from the beach).

The ponds near the Andaman Cultural Study Centre diving spots for birds of prey. Ospreys, Brahminy Kites and White -bellied Sea Eagles often take a dip into the ponds that were teeming with fish. Egrets, Grey Herons, Javan Pond Herons, Darters and Egrets too spend time in the ponds.
