awesomeee jumping shot at Ao Nang Beach!

We got up early at 6.30am to pack for our outing later on. At 7am, we ate complimentary breakfast at the restaurant of our hotel. It wasn't bad at all! There were fruits, salads, rice, bread, eggs and many more! The tour van came to our hotel to fetch us at 8.30am. They took us to a jetty where the speedboats were. Many other tourists were waiting there too! After camwhoring at Ao Nang beach for awhile, we boarded the speedboat! We had to wash our slippers with sea water before boarding because they don't want a lot of sand in their boat i guess. Our first stop was Bamboo island! The view while travelling from the jetty to the island was SPECTACULAR. we saw LOADSS of cliffs and crystal clear water!

After about 45 minutes, we reached the first of Phi Phi islands- Bamboo island! the island was simply BEAUTIFULLLLLLLL!!! the water was greenish blue and the beach was clean with fine sand! We swam around there instead of snorkeling cuz there weren't many fishes so close to the beach.

After camwhoring and all that for 40 minutes,we took off to other sites! Next was Viking Cave, this cave is home to many swollows that produce bird's nest. We just took pictures from the boat and next was Pileh Bay! Pileh Bay is quite shallow and is covered by gorgeous cliffs. Next is the famous Maya Bay where the movie "The Beach" by Leonardo Dicaprio was filmed. It was STUNNING. AND THE AMOUNT OF PEOPLE WAS STUNNING TOO.  It was practically a market on the beach! But the waters were really pretty and clear! We swam quite a bit in the shallow waters as it wasn't good for snorkeling. Btw, we found that the sand here is the finest of all the other beaches we went to.

Next, we headed to Phi Phi Don for lunch! Lunch was buffet style at a restaurant. After lunch, i sat on the beach to do some tanning while waiting for the speetboat to take off.

During this time, i saw 2 chinese tourists from CHINA SPITTING ON THE SAND!!!!!!!!! HOW GROSS IS THAT?!! TYPICAL CHINA PEOPLE!!!! WHY ARE THESE PEOPLE SO UN-EDUCATED?!! that pretty much pissed me off. After that, we went to Monkey Beach for some snorkeling. The speedboat stopped at some point beyond the beach so if you wanted to see monkeys, you had to snorkel/swim to the beach. Our last stop was Hin Klang where we went for some open sea snorkeling. The snorkeling was the BEST here! We saw MANY fishes and live corals!! Our tour guide provided us free bottled water to drink and fruits(pineapple and watermelon) to eat on the way back to Ao Nang.

We took the tour van back to our hotel to bathe. Then we took a nap and went for dinner at another food cart. I had Massaman Curry(rm7) and it was SOOOOOOO GOOODDDDDDDD! After that i covered the rest of the shops at Ao Nang beach and bought some souvenirs.
