When we arrived in Krabi, the boat stopped in a few places where it was met by longtail boats to ferry passengers to Railay beach, Lanta or other day trips. For Ao Nang, the boat docked at a solid pier and we were transferred to our hotel the Mecure Deevana that we really enjoyed.
I loved Poda island that was truly beautiful (though very crowded). J and I walked around the ‘side’ of the island to explore the rocky area that faced the rock pillar (Tang Ming island) that stood sentry beside Poda. The snorkelling off Tang Ming was OK with a good variety of fish, but not much coral.
