At 9 o’clock we were picked up by an AsianPremier Van in front of the lobby of the Thavorn Grand Plaza. After a 30 minute ride we arrived at the marina of Phuket. Then all the tourists gathered there were divided into a few groups according to each ones itinerary. After a short break the tour started with a photo taken in front of the marina. Then we boarded the boat with 15 other tourists, mainly Australian, German and French. The crew welcomed us aboard with fresh soft drinks.
After one hour ride on the speedboat we arrived at Bamboo Island. There we had the possibility to go snorkeling, walk along the beach with the stunning white sand or sunbathing for one additional hour. After we returned to the speedboat again we arrived a special place in the middle of the sea, were we could jump in the wide sea and discover the coral reef on our own. There we were able to feed the fish with bananas. After half an hour it was time to say goodbye to the coral and the fish. Back on board we got fresh bananas as a snack.
After a short ride to Phi Phi Don we enjoyed a great lunch at a beachside restaurant. There we got the choice between international lunch buffet and thai food. After the lunch we spent our free time relaxing and walking along the beach. After one hour we left Phi Phi Don and arrived at Monkey Bay to feed the monkeys with fruits.
The next destination on our journey was Viking Caves. These caves are very famous because there are many bird nests here which are collected to produce a special and very expensive soup. Then we arrived after 15 minutes at Koh Phi Phi Ley. This place is worldwide famous because of the British-American movie THE BEACH. At this place we had 40 minutes free time to enjoy the amazing landscape with the wonderful contrast of the crystal clear water.
The next and last destination of our tour was Khai Nai Island. There we had 40 minutes free time for snorkeling again, sunbathing or enjoying the breathtaking beach! Finally at 5.40 we arrived again at the marina. Here the van was waiting for us to take us again safe back to the hotel Thavorn Grand Plaza in the city center of Phuket.
