Gift - Krabi

Gift

Fruit and flowers

Because it was our anniversary, we had a bowl of local fruit and an orchid bouquet in our room when we arrived.
This was a very special touch and much appreciated.

Watermelon flower - Krabi

Watermelon flower

Culinery art

I love the decorative food that is served on your plate or on a buffet.
A tomato that is carved to look like a bird,
butterflies made out of veggies.
I especially admired this watermelon that was made to look like a flower.

Long-tail - Krabi

Long-tail

Transport

The true river transport in Thailand is the long-tail boat so called because the propeller is located at the end of a long drive shaft extending from the engine.
The motor can be anything from a small marine engine to a large car engine.
Lon-yail boats can travel at great speed.
You will see many of these lined up in Ao Nang ready to take you wherever you would like to go.

Coin box - Krabi

Coin box

Your coin, please

Most public toilets either have a lady sitting at the entrance to collect your coin before you are allowed inside or otherwise they just leave the box sitting on a table and hope you will put your coin in the box.
These are generally squat toilets with a bucket of water nearby for flushing.
