Islands, caves and hidden rooms!

Hiya! πŸ˜›

As promised and after much delay I am back with yet another Thai post. Phew! It’s time for our next trip and I am still stuck in this one. 😦 This post is on our trip to Phang Nga Bay, Phuket, my second favourite day of them all. First, of course, was tiger kingdom. This time I have saved you from my chitter-chatter and instead let the images do the talking. Honestly speaking, it’s Β been almost a year and my memory has become selectively permeable.

We travelled to Phuket by train and that too in a non-AC coach to get an unadulterated Thai feel. Unfortunately for us the idea backfired because of the rain and mosquitoes. I was up all night.

The railway stations and trains look very much similar to their Indian counterparts except for their coach interiors. They are spacious and more comfortable.

We were picked up from our hotel at 6.00 A.M. Phang-Nga Bay is closer to Phuket than Phi-Phi and the sea is calmer. Hence, it is okay to skip the sea sickness meds. Phang-Nga is famous for its picturesque limestone karst islands and hidden rooms which might have formed due to the collapsing of caves leaving it to be surrounded by limestone walls on all sides.

Limestone Cave(‘Hongs’ in Thai) explorations and kayaking are the main activities. πŸ™‚ Β The caves are accessible only by canoes and that too when the tide is not too high.

  1. Go Shruti! I loved this post. So many beautiful photos of the sea and the caves. I also loved the stormy sky. I would be nervous going into the caves, but it looks like a great adventure. I’m not sure what your shirts said, but I understood them thanks to the finger pointing. Cute! Fun plane. I’ll have to check the rest of your vacation! Right now, I must go start my day. – Robin 😊
