hotel lounge

We stayed in Phuket town, which had good shopping and restaurants, interesting architecture, and easy access to day tours to Phang Nga Bay.

Koh Lipe

sunset at beach

Koh Lipe was much like expected. Another relaxed island with beautiful beaches. We really liked being able to snorkel from shore in front of our hotel.

Koh Lanta

While the beach at Koh Lanta was not as nice as on other islands the atmosphere was more relaxed. We enjoyed our stay.

Krabi Town

river at Krabi

We stayed in Krabi Town thinking it would be more convenient for day trips and continuing to Koh Lanta but Ao Nang would be a good option also.

Cheow Larn Lake

Cheow Larn Lake

Cheow Larn Lake was billed as “spectacular” and they didn’t lie. Well worth the effort to get here.

Canoe Safari

The Canoe Safari on the Sok River was a relaxing way to take in the scenery.

Elephant Experience

Hanging out with elephants was everything I hoped it would be. So cool to interact with them and feed them.
