After we get on the boat. We directly headed to our first destination port. It was named as Ko Phi Phi Le.
First Island Ko Phi Phi Le
All is done. The boat is riding towards to islands. Our very first island is Ko Phi Phi Le. Ko Phi Phi Le is the first island to most of tourists. The island is covered with crystal clear blue waters. This spot is most popular for snorkeling, Sea bath and photography. The island is absolutely stunning and picturesque. The place is a heaven for photographers. Some beautiful snaps can be taken while roaming around. After spending few more hours, we get on the speedboat to go to our main island.
Phi Phi Don
Phi Phi Don is our 2nd island spot on the tour. The island is largest one when you compare with other islands. Phi phi Don is like a small town. The City consists with small souvenir shops, cafes, bars, food-stalls, resorts, and hotels. Phi Phi island is more famous it’s world class beach resorts. Many tourists come to the island to spend their special occasions such as weddings and honeymoons.
We reached the island around 1.30pm and it was time to have lunch. The tour company arranged a small buffet for us. After we had our meals, we got a chance to spend little more hours on this amazing island. Some tourists who came with us went for snorkeling and some relaxed on the white sandy beach.
Back to the Speedboat
I would like to say that the Speedboat transfer is a very good choice to travel between islands. It usually travels at a high speed and faster than a ferry. Our next destinations are Viking Cave and world-famous Maya Bay.
Viking cave is famous for Birds’ nests. Also, there were some paints inside the caves. Some say they are painted by Pirates who used the caves as a home. We did not stay long hours in there as we had very limited time. Our boat turned to go to Maya Bay.
Maya bay is the most beautiful bay in Phuket. It is very stunning. Inside the bay there is a small beach which usually covered with lots of people. People love to spend more time over there. The bay is world famous because of the “The Beach” movie. World famous CNN travel post a article about “Thailand bay made popular by ‘The Beach’ to remain closed for two more years” .
When we reached in the beach, there were lots of ferries and boats carrying hundreds of tourists who love sightseeing and snorkeling. Because of high crowds of tourists, the place is not calm as we thought. I recommend you to visit there early in the morning. You’ll enjoy the beauty of the beach which covered by Andaman Sea with the sun rise.
After enjoying the sightseeing, we get on the board to finish our tour. I was sad to go back, but we had to. Our one-day tour was over very quickly. Once we came to Phuket terminal, we saw our shuttle service and they picked to drop us to the Hotel.
The tour was amazing than we thought. The snorkeling, sightseeing, beaches, food, and everything about it was totally worthwhile. If you are in Phuket definitely you should take time and go. It will be a long-lasting memory in your travel life.
