We woke up bright and fresh at 6am! In fact i woke up even earlier but went back to sleep some more.. Old Liao – can’t sleep too much!
So we washed up and proceeded to the restaurant for our buffet breakfast, included in the stay.
this trip – I felt truly relaxed.
And after breakfast, we were all ready for our day tour to the neighboring islands 🙂
After the transfer to the beach, we got onto a speedboat where it would take us around.. Phi phi island.. Maya beach.. Khai island etc. Our group consists of all kinds of tourists – there was even a group of Korean tourists with their tour guide!
Hubby and I also had our first try at snorkeling. Didn’t take pics of that coz we were either busy changing or busy snorkeling! It was an eye opener, although I was super scared.. I’m not a good swimmer and I’ve never swam in deep seawater before.. So I took a few minutes to get my hand off the boat handle lol. I drank quite a bit of seawater too coz I couldn’t get used to breathing through that pipe!
But it was worth a try – seeing those corals and fishes while you are in the sea is indeed very different from seeing them on tv 😉
The day tour started at 9plus and ended at 5pm. Seriously, time passed by so fast. The speedboat rides were quite choppy at first but the tour guide explained that it was low tide in the morning hence it was quite rough. They got better in the afternoon.
If I go Phuket again, I won’t do this a second time. Once is good! I can always snorkel somewhere else.
And after our day tour, we headed back to the hotel, freshened up a bit and it was time to visit the night market! That will be next post 🙂
