So this was the day when we decided to do Island hopping to the famous Phi Phi Island! We decided to take a package tour from Sea Star holidays. They are extremely meticulous in their planning and systematic. We started at 6:45 from our hotel. We had to reach the pier by 8:30 which was located at Phuket bay. We packed enough supplies of bread butter , milk for our little one as it was gonna be a long day and could have been exhausting for him.
Upon reaching the pier , everything was color coded and we were part of the blue team. We were given band according to the color code. Some 30 minutes were spent in providing guidelines to all excited travelers. We were shown the route map. We were to first visit Phi Phi don island, then Phi Phi lae island which was to be seen through our boat itself as the government has put some restrictions for visit there. The Maya beach famous for the movie The beach starring Leonardo Di Caprio is located at Phi Phi lae island. Lastly we were to visit the Kai island.
It was a comfortable speed boat with around 45 travelers. The team from Sea Star were very hospitable and kept us entertained throughout with their funny anecdotes. The boat had supplies of water, soft drink and tid bits for eveeyone. We stopped near Phi Phi don for Snorkeling for around 30 mins. There were butterfly fishes and corals. At around noon we reached the island. Lunch was arranged for us at the island. It was one of the best food we had in Thailand. We ate to our satisfaction .
Next we sailed towards Phi Phi lae. We saw the monkey beach from the boat, the Maya beach and enticing lime stone formation of rocks which makes you wonder at the ways of nature.
Lastly we reached at Kai island, where we had some snacks and juice. The beach was lovely. We had fun at the beach.
