Thailand is a visual treat; the place has almost everything starting from beautiful beaches, lush green forest to temples, palaces and ruins. Our trip started with Phuket from where we covered Phi Phi Island, Krabi, Phang Nga bay and Khao Sok National Park. Bangkok was the final leg of our journey.

The photologue begins -

Day 1

We started our trip with Phi Phi Island, a not to be missed destination in Thailand. It was an hour's speedboat ride from Phuket covering Piley Cove, Maya Bay, Viking Cave, Monkey Island, Phi Phi Don and finally Bamboo Island.

Day 2

Next day was reserved for Phang-Nga Bay and James Bond Island. This was a full day big-boat trip. The islands are known for their beautiful beaches, lagoons and natural rock formations jutting out of the emerald-green water.

We did a lot of canoeing here which took us to limestone caves also known as 'Hong' and beautiful lagoons

The best way to explore the tropical rainforest is to take an elephant safari

Even though we couldn't cover a lot of other famous places here, the trip was a memorable one. The part of Thailand that we covered was beautiful beyond words.
