Thailand’s impressive underwater world on the Phi Phi Islands who visited Thailand, should in any case snorkeling go. The we thought us also, as we a day tour to the Phi Phi Islands at Khao Lak country discovery bays. The day began in the early hours of the morning and we were picked up at 05:10. It should turn out later, why you just so PHI had to get up early Islands for the PHI. But once we drove about 90 minutes from Khao Lak to Phuket, where we could make us a little stronger and were provided with biscuits, coffee and juices. Then we boarded our speedboat and the ride to the famous Phi Phi Islands and the Maya Bay began.
With this, 675 HP Plage speedboat we achieved on the way to Phi Phi Don after an hour our first snorkeling stop. Before we could jump into the clear turquoise waters, has been us explains briefly how to use mask, fins and snorkel right in the water and on the boat, so that even snorkel novice like me could enjoy this impressive experience. We got Snorkel mask, snorkel and fins, and then hopped on a ladder at the end of the boat in the refreshing water. It was impressive how many different fish we around the Phi Phi Islands could admire. In the most extraordinary colors and patterns such as purple, blue and green or black-yellow-white striped swarms pass in and among us.
After we had admired the underwater world and the colourful corals, which grow in all kinds of bizarre, about 40 minutes, the captain led PHI us safely to the next station of the Phi Islands. On a private beach was for us a delicious and varied buffet with yellow curry, fried fish, rebuilt Curry with nuts, rice and cooked vegetables. For dessert, there were still fruity melon and sweet pineapple chunks. After dinner, another highlight was the stop at the paradise-like monkey Bay”with white sand beach and an advertisement reminding clear water. The resident macaques can feed although like with bananas, but not like it to be touched. The stopping but it not, to engage with people. So we had two small visitors on our boat, which had disappeared with a banana and a small shower but soon. On the boat trip, passed cave large and small limestone cliffs with stalactites and a cave in the rock to the Viking”. In it are many swallow’s nests, the Thai care. A bit further we were again surrounded by rocks in a Bay of the Phi Phi Islands a little refreshment to take. The water there was saltier than the free ocean to jump because there less water exchange takes place – but what prevented anyone from the refreshing, turquoise sea. Outside the Bay, you could once again snorkel and admire many parrot fish, Barracuda, Red Soldier fish, cuttlefish and starfish. Typical of the Phi Phi Islands are pipefishes, which strongly reminiscent of seahorses. These are black and white, elongated fish with a red paddle that serves as a dorsal fin. The “last agenda was the stay on the famous Maya Bay, since the film the beach” with Leonardo DiCaprio, attracts the tourists. Our tour guide made a small tour of the island with us, so that afterwards still time remained, to relax or to go swimming.
