Ao Nang (Krabi), Thailand
During a one-week visit to Ao Nang, Thailand, about two hours south of Phuket, we fell in love with the limestone rocks jetting out of the water,
the scuba diving opportunities on the nearby Phi Phi islands and the possibility of buying land and starting a new business venture. We rented an apartment for a month to do our due diligence. Our prospects failed after further researching costs and talking to the locals (you are doomed to fail unless you marry local), but we did enjoy our time in the small, beach-side town. We even rented our own moped for the month. That was an adventure in itself (great story to come).
Eating dinner while watching the sun set (yes, that’s a whole fish)
and visiting our friends at Scuba Addicts every night while they puffed on cigarettes, drank beer and recalled the day’s diving adventures became our routine for a while. We really dug in to the place.
