The Islands, Thailand

Monday, September 30

 As previously mentioned,
{on my Railey Beach post}
in an effort to not feel like complete lazy bums,
 we decided it was high time to “do” something 
and see a few other islands in Thailand.  
So we signed up to have a speedboat take us to four islands for some snorkeling.
We decided that snorkeling sounded the most like “nothing” 
which is really what we set out to do in Thailand.
leeezzzz be honest. 

Now there are a lot tours/activities to do in and around Railey, 
like rock climbing, 
zip lining, 
scuba diving,
etc. etc. etc.
{seriously, we couldn't believe how many random tours there were!}

 So even though Railey is not a relatively large area, 
it’s pretty incredible all the fun things you could potentially do while there! 

the day was absolutely perfect. 
we met some really fun couples from England and Australia
and cruised around the most gorgeous archipelago in the world:)

We swam on the gorgeous beach of Bamboo Island
Explored the famous Maya Bay (made crazy popular by the Leo movie “The Beach”)
Ate lunch and frolicked in the waves of the idyllic Koh Phi Phi
And snorkeled in a bay off Koh Phi Phi filled with loads of colorful fish.  

i'd do it again in a heartbeat:) 
enjoy the pictures! 
happy Monday,
love Katie

  1. I love Thailand, we did the same beach tour and I loved the whole experience- it was my husbands first time snorkeling and he loved it so much he did his diving coarse after. What beautiful pictures!! Enjoy your trip:)

  2. Oh my gosh Katie that is SO crazy beautiful!! I dream of going to Thailand, and because of views like that it's somewhere that I dream of going for my honeymoon! :-) I fell in love with Thailand a couple summers ago when that was a destination where the cast of the Bachelorette went! Now after seeing your pictures I'm determined to go someday! Haha.
