I missed telling about our speedboat trip to Phi Phi Island. If you're not ready for the almost two hours it takes to get there and started, I don't recommend it. Which means if you don't have a lot of patience then don't go. But it's worth every bit of the travel time to me. After you finally get going on the boat it's another hours trip to the islands but it's a great ride. Well, only if you don't suffer from sea sickness I guess. But we didn't and it was a beautiful day.
I can't even convey in words the beauty of the islands and the water. We went to three or four different spots and was able to snorkel and see beautiful fish and hand feed them bananas. The guide was great. She was a lovely 66 year old French lady who was in better shape than me at 46. Wonderful guide and just a friendly funny crew of local Thais as well. It was a long day for us at our ages but we got through it pretty well. I've walked so much since I've been here that I've lost five pounds. Lol. Who loses weight on holiday? Anyway the trip was great and I recommend it to anyone thinking of going while in Phuket.
