Thailand- Phuket

Different country, same story... once again behind on the blog. Currently, we are in Chiang Mai (Northern Thailand) and headed to Cambodia in a few days. We spent a week in Thailand's most famous beach area Phuket. Wow, what amazing white sand beaches, archipelagos and some of the best snorkeling/diving in the world. We were in the southern part of Thailand for two weeks- Phuket, Koh Samui and Koh Pha Ngan. Phuket is probably one of the most touristy areas of Thailand, but was still worth a visit. While there, we did a few excursions out to the Phi Phi islands and Phang Nga limestone formations. When we weren't out sightseeing, our days were spent at Kata Beach sitting in the sun and hanging out at a reggae beach bar (the following week at Koh Samui & Pha Ngan will sound very similar in the next posting). After being here almost three weeks, we understand why so many people travel to Thailand! Beautiful place, the kindest people and the FOOD!

Cape Promthep- Phuket's most southern point. A popular place to watch the sunset over the Andaman Sea.

Can you tell? Brett has almost perfected the one-arm-shot. We've discovered we like most of these shots better than when others attempt to use the camera!

Day trip to Koh Phi Phi also famous from The Beach. It would be even better minus all the people!

Trip to Phang Nga- We sea canoed inside caves, boated in and around amazing limestone formations and had lunch at a floating village.

Okay, cheesy photo, but we had to compete with everyone else for our shot at James Bond Island. Famous from the movie The Man with the Golden Gun. I was impressed when my Dad knew where we were and knew the movie without saying anything about it!
