Go Phi Phi! Day 7

Hellooooo 🙂 ,

I hope all of you are having a great year, if not let me take you on a holiday! 😉

Didn’t I tell  you before, that 12 of my “Thai” posts are on their way?. So here it is, my first post of 2015 and yet another set of beauties from the islands of Phuket. Feel free to check out my first, second, third and fourth posts as well. Ha!

We were visiting The Phi Phi Islands on day 7. Before I start my post, I would like to share some tips with you guys, what if it helps??

  • Please, book the tours only after you reach Phuket. There are enough tour operators and you will definitely get tickets. So no worries.

We had booked our tours beforehand for 2800 Thai baht per person(including free pick up or dropping off at the airport), but to our dismay, found out that those, who had booked the tours from Phuket, got them for just 1500 baht per person.  😦

  • If you have sea sickness, please take medicines half an hour before you go into the sea because it is quite a journey.
  • You will have to carry swimming suits, sun block cream, beach towel, sunglasses and everything else that you need 🙂 .
  • If you are a vegetarian, you have to inform them while booking the tours.
  • It can be tiring( it was for me, at least) because there is so much to cover in a day and you don’t get to spend more than an hour at any of the islands.

This is all that I can think of for now 😦 .

Our first stop was the Viking cave. I said stop because the cave is now closed for tourists.

Viking cave, can you see the nests?

 

Here is some interesting information I found online, the cave is so called because of the prehistoric drawings of ancient Viking ships drawn by sea gypsies and pirates. They used the cave as shelter during storms. The cave now is home to thousands of birds called swifts whose nests, made from their own saliva, are harvested and sold to make birds nest soup, a Chinese delicacy. You can buy these nests in Thailand, but they are very expensive. If any of you have tasted it, please do let me know in the comments below! 🙂

After Viking cave, we were taken to Pileh Lagoon. It was such a beauty that even a person who does not swim( like me) can’t resist the urge to get into the water. As for me, I realised it was a bad idea because I kept clinging onto my husband and nearly drowned him 😉 . If you look carefully into the azure waters you are sure to spot some  beautiful fishes!

The Beach was filmed in Maya Bay which was our next stop. High cliffs surrounded the bay on all three sides. Agreed, it was beautiful but it was also very crowded and so Maya Bay was my least favourite. 😦  Now let me show you some pics,

After leaving Maya Bay we were allowed to do snorkelling for some time and then taken to Phi Phi Don island for lunch 🙂 .

Monkey beach was our next stop after which, it was snorkelling time again 🙂 . Since the monkeys had become aggressive, we were not allowed to get down at the beach, but we did take some pics( unfortunately, they aren’t very clear either 😛 ).

All set, ready to go!

He says he saw many of them, fishes, you know. I doubt! 😉

Can you spot my husband enjoying his snorkelling adventure?

 

Our last island for the day was Khai Island. This island being closer to Phuket was the first stop for majority of the tours but for us it was our last stop and hence the beach was entirely our’s. The white sandy beach was so memerizing that it could make anyone a romantic. I just loved it!

Love in Phuket 😉

Being ecologically rich 🙂

 

And now, for the icing on my post! 😉

Our picture perfect moment!

 

In our two years of marriage, this was the first time Di lifted me up for a pic! My very very special moment indeed( told you, the beach was magical).

P.S: Sorry for being Mrs. Lazy Shruti 😦 , it took me 20 days to write my first post for the year! Missed you all.

Love,

Shruti.

  3. That’s very lazy of you Shruti. How was your new year btw..

    I think I suggested you not to book tours from the net I guess.. 😀 But whatever, it just some extra money, and if you have enjoyed the moment then nothing else matters…

    This is Thailand revisited for me.

    Thanks for sharing!!!
