Phuket – Villa Zolitude Day 2 (daytime) – 20 Feb 2014

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.

There’s also an open kitchen that does your eggs πŸ™‚

The ambience is perfect for a leisurely breakfast πŸ™‚

I ate so many pomelo slices – soooo sweet!

There were also other guests having their breakfast too. Most of them are couples. I saw only 1 couple with an infant. Looks like it’s more a honeymoon place πŸ™‚

this trip – I felt truly relaxed.

And after breakfast, we were all ready for our day tour to the neighboring islands πŸ™‚

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!

After a super choppy and rough 1 hour plus ride, we finally reached the phi ooh island where The Beach was filmed.. Aiyo it was filled with tourists!!

No space even for the boats to park.

20140224-222322.jpg
Not much space for people to frolick in the water coz there were too many boats at the shore.

Love the waters.

And this beach has the finest sand ever! It feels like I’m walking on flour!

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 πŸ˜‰

We also went to the monkey place but there were no monkeys in sight. So we headed off for lunch.

Massive lunch area catering to all tourists!

I was wearing contacts the whole day, thankfully it was not too dry! My eyes siao siao one.

20140224-223337.jpg
Healthy lunch, coz I was wearing bikini, so didn’t wanna be seen with a food tummy haha.

20140224-223416.jpg
Our last stop – khai island. The sand is so crappy stony and rough!

20140224-223505.jpg
Even when we were under the umbrellas, it was still damn hot can.

See the sand? Very rough!

20140224-223830.jpg
And zero clouds in the sky. I was hiding from the sun as much as I could!

20140224-223917.jpg
Trouble free faces haha.

We got back to our speedboat early to hide from the sun Haha. Took this pic at the front side of our boat πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚
