Snorkeling Trip Honeymoon Day 3

Woke up at 7am today, took shower and went for breakfast. We chose extra waffle with honey and chicken porridge this time. Yummy! At 8.30am Halim was already at the security guardhouse waiting for us. We stopped at the 7 Eleven to buy sun block. Let me tell you, they have like ten 7 Eleven shops there at one place!

We booked our taxi to Krabi Airport with Halim for the next day. It was much cheaper than the hotel rate. That's normal.

So we're ready for our trip. We were given a huge tail boat, just for the two of us and yes with two drivers. No wonder it costs us RM550! Complete with foods, drinks, fruits and snorkeling equipment. Mr. Fruitheart said, 'orang kaya tak sedar diri'. That's what we called, pampering ourselves honey.

Journey to Phi Phi Island took us one hour and 45 mins. Lucky for us the weather was good, sunny and the sky was clear. I guess the temperature must be around 29 deg Celsius. In the open blue green sea, we can see jelly fish. Awesome! We were told it was not the dangerous type, only the small ones. Not sure how true is that.

First stop was a spot for snorkeling. I would say, it was not that beautiful. Dead corals and yes, there were lots of colorful fishes. Due to our first time using the underwater camera, we were not expert enough to use it.


Next stopped, Maya Bay.. stunningly beautiful beaches. Maya Bay has become the main tourist attraction of Phi Phi since The Beach was filmed here in 1999. It was always very popular before the film but now people around the world who haven't even heard of Phi Phi have certainly heard of Maya Bay. Read here for All About Maya Bay

Beautiful!
 
After about half hour spending time there.. we went to Viking Cave which is located at the Phi Phi Ley island. The Viking Cave is a cave right at sea level filled with bird's nests. Painted on the walls are ancient color paintings resembling Viking boats hence the name Viking Cave.

Next was my fave activity, SHOPPING! We bought few souvenirs. The place was full of people, yes they have bars and pubs, fish foot spa, massage spa, restaurants and souvenirs shop. It was like small town. The clock shows 2.45pm when we decided to go back to the hotel. We were exhausted!

At 5pm, both of us had whole body massage. It was superb! Dinner soon after that, and it was a really good time to sleep after whole day out and massage and rain.. so nice!
