Phuket – paradise in Southeast Asia found in the Andaman Sea. Phuket is a series of mountainous islands and one of Asia’s most popular beach destinations. Many tours take you to see the famous rock formations jutting out of the pristine waters and even take a break to let you swim and bask in the island’s beauty.
Most tours to see the islands are via speedboats. Our group opted to go on a catamaran and managed to scout chairs on the open deck, even on a day that was gloomy and threatened rain. Despite the rocky waves, we still arrived to our first stop safely – Sea Angel Pier – for a quick transfer of some guests. We then ventured off to see the Phi Phi Islands! Even with the clouds, we were still able to see the rock formations clearly. They’re very difficult to miss. 🙂
Phi Phi Islands and Maya Bay
It began to rain so we had no choice but to go into the interior seats of the catamaran. With some lucky, the rain let up and we were able to swim and snorkel in the Andaman Sea. What a treat, and to see all the fish, species we were unfamiliar with, swimming around us! We sailed past the Viking Cave and James Bond Island, but eventually made our stop at the beautiful Maya Bay, which you may have seen in the movie The Beach. Here, we had our lunch buffet, shopped, and spent some time just enjoying the beautiful views.
