So yeah, I finally found the Windows desktop wallpaper! When in Rome (Thailand) ya gotta check out the islands.
They are undoubtedly some of the most B E A utiful places on earth. The kinda places you only ever dream of visiting, the places you see in films (ahem, The Beach) and the places I never thought I would see with my very own eyes. Y’know, just frolicking, chillin’ in the same sea as Leondardo DiCaprio. Say whaaaaat?
We set off early from Ko Lanta with Opal Travel, skimming across the calm morning sea all the way to Ko Phi Phi. First stop, Maya Bay.
THAT water tho. Oh my sweet jeebus, I was completely stunned. I never though sea could actually be that turquoise, I thought most people just upped the saturation but nope #nofilter it was i n s a n e.
We hopped off the boat onto the powdery white sand, dodging between the millions of other tourists. That was the only downside of experience, but I guess it’s a reality that can’t be helped.
There was a lotta posing going on, lots of Instagram boyf action (exhibit A below) but you do have to capture that moment, these are for the grandchildren!
And of course, the ultimate postcard snap…
We clambered back onto the boats and headed out for a spot of snorkeling. The fish, coral and general snorkeling action out in Thailand is incredible, I did kinda feel like that mean diver off Finding Nemo (I didn’t take any fish) but it was amazing. Amazing until my goggles filled with salt water, damn it.
My next stop was my favourite, Bamboo Island.
If heaven was a place on earth, this would be it. White sandy beach, pale blue sea and a bunch of palm trees for shade. Our lunch of curry and fresh fruit was also here which obviously helped to hehe.
After a few more hours of relaxing, snorkeling and sunbathing (burning), we headed back to our little island of Ko Lanta.
If you are out in Thailand and fancy a little half day adventure to see some propa beauty, I would absolutely recommend looking into a boat trip – you will love it!
Also, I put together a lil 6 min travel vlog of our trip over on my YouTube hehe >:) SO MANY MEMORIES!
