PB Travel Journal: Thailand

Cover

This postcard-perfect picture of Phuket makes us want to go there again. The gorgeous views, serene waters and distinct greens ensured that we didn’t have a dull moment even once. While taking a million dips in the beaches and eating the most delicious food, we had the best time of our lives in Thailand.

We spent the first couple of days in Phuket and the truth that it is basically a bigger and better version of Goa dawned upon us. A lot of travellers flock this place and it’s quite interesting to see a mix of people around. We beach-hopped, tried the local Thai food and partied in the nightclubs on loop. We had the Caspian earrings which acted as the perfect company to our LBD. The next day, we visited a tiger and elephant sanctuary and later in the day we explored Old Phuket Town where we sat in a little cafe bar with some chill music.

Next was Krabi, which is on the other side of Thailand. We cannot describe how beautiful the beaches and the mountains looked here!

None of us got bored even after all we did was just sit back and spend the entire day in our swimsuits. We had our accessories on ofcourse because how could we forget them? Our short stay here did comprise of a trip to Emerald Pool which is a natural mineral pool in the middle of a forest. We also visited a hot spring which was a very relaxing experience. Later, we went to the night market, which is like a big flea market. We ate some delicious local food and shopped for some souvenirs.

We left Phi Phi for the last because ofcourse it’s the best. We took an early morning ferry to the Island and came to realize that this tiny little island has no vehicles. You can practically get from one side to another in 10 minutes, yes it’s that small! The water here is clear and as blue as the sky; it almost feels like it mirrors the beautiful azure blues. One thing that we absolutely loved about this place was that it was filled with cats! (WE LOVE CATS!).

On the second day, we went on a party boat to a nearby island and on the way, we visited Monkey Beach and snorkeled to our heart’s content. Just being in the sea under the sun with all the fish was indeed a memorable experience. Lastly, we visited Maya Bay which is a tiny, little bay surrounded by big rock-like mountains and trees. We ended the trip in the best possible way by swimming in the sea till sunset 🙂

A little sadness did creep in when the trip was ending, but then we had shopped and visited some really exotic places which made us happy 😀 hehe

It was indeed a trip well done!
