Adventures in Krabi Town
Our third full day in Thailand we explored the Krabi Town area, starting with Tiger Cave Temple (Wat Tham Sua).

The inside of the temple was amazing. It was very ellabrotately painted, with a large Buddha statue as the focal point.
Finally it was time for the thing I had been most looking forward to, fabric shopping! The tailor we found in Ao Nang suggested we try Sunny's in Krabi Town, and sure enough it did not disappoint. They had racks and racks of silks and cotton Thai batiks, and my smart husband took a seat a few doors down and let me go crazy.

After I loaded up with some beautiful bright prints, we headed back towards the main street. Then Phil spotted another fabric store, so we browsed and found even more, all for around $2.50-$4/meter. Fortunately we had the foresight to leave room in our luggage for the return trip.

After our adventures in Krabi Town we headed back to Ao Nang and picked up my beautifully tailored new winter coat. We packed, had dinner, and got ready to head back to Singapore the following morning.
