quite alot has happened in the past few days!! We left koh samui and headed for krabi, Ao Nang!! It was glorious, we spent a day on the beach and looking at the town etc and then the second day we did the most amazing tour! we literally saw it from a leaflet dropped on the beach. It was called a 7 island sunset snorkelling tour!! we started off around 1pm where we hit railay beach!! rooms were a bit expensive here otherwise we would have stayed there. But we went to our first island for a practice snorkel. Lots of fish to look at i also saw a giant barracuda!! The whole tour took place from a long tail boat which was lovely rather than a modern speed boat! The second place we went snorkelling was amazing! we saw nemo and rainbow fish and amazing coral and too many fish to name! i also saw more baracuda! We then headed onwards to another snorkelling place but didnt enjoy this so much as the coral was so close it was difficult to see but the amount of fish swimming around us was surreal! it was just like the fish highway in finding nemo!! The best part about the tour is that because it was later all the other tour boats had left so we were on our own at these breathtaking spots!Further on we did some cave swimming where the water was so clear you could see far deeper than your feet! Our last stop was past Chicken island to a place where they filmed some of Pirates of the Carribean! Two islands are linked by a pathway of sand - absolutely amazing!! Here we walked along the beach and in the water and chilled out watching the sunset with a beer! A man also proposed to his gitlfriend which was sweet!! We ate dinner on the beach,. a seafood curry - it was sooo spicey!!! On the way home we stopped at some cliffs in the dark and all jumped in! Here, when the water is disturbed it glows and sparkles! so as we jumped in we were sparkling, it is due to the phosphorous mineral that falls from the cliffs! It was incredible! What a wonderful day, so worth 16pounds each!!!
Today though we left Ao Nang and arrived at Koh Phi Phi! This is the island which was worst hit by the Tsunami! It is paradise! No cars, no sellers on the beach just sun and good food!!!
We are really regretting not having longer here as we have so much more we want to see!
Boo - I have most defo seen Ting Tong - it is not pleasant haha!!
