Today I got to see some very beautiful beaches on Thailand’s islands. I decided to do the tour on a traditional longtail boat, and it was a great experience!
Our first stop was to Phranang Cave – the cave is supposed to be the location of a princess spirit, but we weren’t actually allowed in because they turned the cave into a retail store. But the beach itself was still very pretty.
Next up was Tup Island. During low tide you can actually walk across the sand to the next island, so that was a pretty cool feature!
We stopped by Chicken Island to do a little snorkeling (can you see the chicken in the island shape?). No snorkeling is ever going to beat the Great Barrier Reef, but it was nice to cool off in the water.
Our last stop of the day was to Poda Island, where we had a lovely picnic on the beach, and lots of time to explore.
That evening I had the most delicious mango smoothie (fact: every mango smoothie in Thailand is the most delicious), and readied myself for tomorrow’s three hour ferry ride to Koh Lanta.
