Hello fellow brits!
So Im in thailand now, Krabi to be precise! As soon as we get here I realise why Thailand is known as the 'Land of Smiles'. The people are so amazingly nice and friendly, its really nice. I wish people were like this in England! Krabi is near Phuket on the west of southern thailand. Our plan initially was to stay here and go to Ko Phi Phi and then head to the east and go to Ko Phag gnan for the fullmoon party on the 30th. We've realised that we wont have enough time to do Laos and Vietnam, plus im kinda beached out after the perhentians and the islands we went to yesterday, so were heading to Bangkok tonight on an overnight coach, should be interesting! The islands in thailand really are amazing, clear blue water and white sands mmm paradise! Yesterday we went to the islands surrounding Krabi, 4 of them, and one of them was where 'pirrates in the carribean' was filmed woo, unfourtunately no johnny depp was to be found! So we went island hopping yestyerday and did some snorkelling. The snorkelling wasnt as good as the perhentians but we did see lots of different fish, and god i hate jelly fish, even when your swimming in the sea, its tentacles sting you when they touch your body even if the actual jellyfish is nowhere around! anyway after this we went to some caves where there was a shrine, it is believed that the 'princess goddess' lives there and she is the god of fertility. it was very strange, there were huge penis's left there, was funny!
So were leaving for bangkok today at 4pm and reaching there at 6am! from here were heading north for chang mai and then working down through laos and into cambodia!
