Phi Phi Islands, Krabi - Thailand
We have finally arrived in the south of Thailand in Krabi and we are all looking forward to going to Phi Phi Islands to relax on the beach, get that amazing photo of where The Beach was filmed and top up on our tans!
The stay started perfectly, although the speedboat ride was a little bit bumpy, so there was the occasional scream from those who were sitting at the front of the boat. lol! It was so funny, I was one of those screaming, my stomach just kept going every time we hit a big wave head on!
The first island was a chill out, top up on our tans and go for a swim. It was amazing, the water was so clear that I could see the fish swimming between my legs, I was so impressed. =O)
After that we hit a few other islands and then we arrived at the famous island where the beach was filmed, the beach looked amazing and the water looked so clear, we all wanted to jump straight in. I used the opportunity to try and get pictures as I could see a black storm cloud coming towards us. All of a sudden the sand started whipping me in my face, on my arms and legs, so I started running back to the boat with everyone else on the island. All the speedboats on the shoreline started hitting into each other. We finally got back onto the speedboat and were given life jackets and told to hold on. One of the girls started freaking out, you could see how scared she was in her eyes, it was so funny to watch that I could not stop laughing!
We managed to get to the next island for our buffet lunch, but the heavens had already opened and we all looked lije drowned rats! We got in the restaurant and everyone was just starring at us, maybe because we only had our bikini's on in an Asian country! It was so funny.
The tour continued regardless, so snorkling in the rain twice and then back to the hotel to have a warm shower. It was a hard journey back with plenty of screaming going on in the speedboat! A very crazy and adventurous day had by all.
