Phuket - Thailand’s largest beautiful island, surrounded by the freakishly azure waters of the Andaman Sea.

Days here are busy with island hoping and water activities; nights are reserved for enjoying good company, whether at a restaurant, a disco, a quiet bar, or a combination of all three.

Our first honeymoon destination and we chose Phuket in the first place. 

Day 1 - Spent 3 days in Bangkok City and took Airasia flight from Bangkok airport to Phuket.

Arrived Phuket @ 10 PM, Took a Taxi to Patong Beach Area to our Pre-booked Hotel, and this is most happening place in Phuket.

As warm welcome from resort people and lovely arrangement of Bath towels in our hotel room. Loved it!

Day 2 - Booked Island Hoping in resort itself ; Fare - 1200 BHT / person, which is really worth of spending money for visiting few of world's beautiful islands in Phuket.

Started at 8 AM and went to Jetty Point and we were shifted to Ferry;  Traveled  in beautiful Andaman sea for 2 hours to reach our first Island - Phi Phi Island

Phi Phi's fine-grained beach sand was as white and toasty as any we’ve ever stuck our toes in.

Don't miss taking a snap with Long Tail boats in Phi-Phi.

Reached Koh Yao Island after another 30 mins to sea journey. Had nice food on the Island and spent an hour there relaxing.

Some unknown raw seafood on the island, could be an octopus?

Next is to Coral Island - features only two beaches named Long and Banana, both of them facing north and offering great diving and snorkeling opportunities.

Nice view of a resort, which also offers stay facility.

Day 2 - Booked for Simon Cabernet Show at 8 PM;  This is one of Southeast Asia’s outstanding entertainment attractions drawing a thousand enthused visitors from around the world each evening. A single show runs the entire range of musical theater from cultures around the world. 

Quite impressed to see the ladyboys dancing for one of the Hindi song from Devdas Movie.

You can take picture with each performer at the end of the show;  but remember, it will empty your pocket, as each performer will charge 100 BHT to take a picture with them.
