few months ago we got the chance to bring sofea on her 1st flight. our destination is krabi, thailand. sofea was 10months+ at that time, so excited to explore her surrounding at that time bcoz she just started walking.. so it was a tiring but fun and exciting gateway for me & hubs..
we booked both our airasia ticket way before sofea was born during airasia promo so we had to go to airasia counter in lcct 2 weeks before the departure date to 'add in' lil sofea, with the cost of around RM100 if not mistaken..
for our accomodation, we booked online thru agoda.com as they gave big discounts compared to other sites.. after reading the reviews, we decided to stay in aonang orchid resort for 3 days 2 nites.. the hotel location is perfect, very near to the beach, shops, halal food, huge pool, etc.. but the hotel doesnt have lift. so we have to use the strairs everytime we went out.. hummm..

on the 1st day in krabi we decided to rent a scooter just to explore the area (around rm25 per day).. i 'babywear' sofea while riding the scooter, just to be careful... we found quite a few halal restaurant and stalls along the street.. and we tried the famous 'thai pancake' with different2 flavours everyday.. it is absolutely yummeh!

then on the 2nd day we went island hopping in phi phi island & a few island nearby.. cost around rm100 per person, from 8.30am to 4pm, with complimentary buffet lunch in phi phi, unlimited drinks on the speedboat & they even serve fresh fruits to us!
phi phi islands is beautiful! crystal clear water, but not much corals i think.. since sofea is still small, we have to take turns to snorkel.. but we did take her along with her float in a few sites while we snorkel but there are a few sites that are not suitable for baby because of the high waves..
on the speedboat, sofea is the center of attention as she is the only baby there.. hehe.. so everyone was so kind to give us the best seats on the boat.. =D
actually it is not advisable to bring baby to island hopping, especially when it involves around 7hrs on the speedboat! but alhamdulillah sofea was not cranky at all that day.. i think she is amazed with the beauty of phi phi as well :)
