Phuket Day 3 - Islands Hopping

My Phuket travel tale continues. I blogged about Day 1 & 2 here. So on day 3, we decided to go for island tour. We just randomly picked a tour from tour agent stall since every tour agents work for almost the same company. The island tour included transport to and fro from our hotel, tea break, lunch and soft drinks on boat. Trick: gather all of your friends, the more the merrier because you can bargain the tour price till as low as RM100. Additional trick: feel free to flirt with your tour agent to get more discount. I tried but it didn't work. :(

Briefing 8 am in the morning, spot me! The loner obviously, surrounded by other tourists.

Getting ready to hop on my yacht boat

Thank God I took the sea sick pill during briefing because our boat ride was a tough one. The tide was quite high and the current were strong. One time the bf really need to use the toilet and we had to stop in the middle of the ocean, so he could use the world smallest toilet in the speed boat. Because our captain turned off the boat engine, the boat was floating around dancing to the current. A girl couldn't help it and throwing up on the boat. Poor girl, her face literally turned green.

Reaching Maya Bay

Totally in awe admiring the view

We stepped on the same land beach as Leonardo DiCaprio  

Next destination is Viking Cave.

I don't remember what's inside Viking Cave but initially tourists are allowed to go in but right now it was closed due to maintenance or something, I don't really remember.The effect of blogging about this 2 months later. Forgive me please.

 We also stopped by the Monkey Beach

Freaking out because the monkey was approaching me

Just strolling along the beach yo

Notice the little monkey sitting on the trunk, he/she was so chillax, minding her own business

Monkeys there are so relaxing and none of them actually care about us. They were just playing with each other and occasionally running here and there. Look quite harmless but I won't try to come in contact with them tho. We were warned beforehand not to feed them and come in contact with them as they might feel threaten and become aggressive.

Our next activity is my favorite one, snorkeling. I had so much fun looking at the little colorful fish. It was really beautiful. I love chasing them in the water, trying to touch them but they swam so fast. Pfffttt
Getting my gear ready

All set and ready to jump into the water

If you look closely, you literally can see the fish in the water on the left side.
Can you spot the little blue fish?? 

Our final spot is Khai Nok Island for lunch and relaxing on the beach

The buffet selection. Everything taste good when you're hungry.
And chilled Coca Cola taste even better after you spend whole day in the salt water.

Exploring the island

While the bf joined others playing beach volleyball

Looking back at all these photos make me miss Phuket so much especially the beach. One of the dream is to have a beach house but it is near impossible :( I love being so carefree and not to think about anything, no deadlines, no errands. Just being in the moment and exploring and absorbing the new surrounding.

I need another holiday. Seriously.
