Nowadays with websites like tripadvisor, wikipedia and travel blogs it’s super easy to find out the top 10 must dos for your next vacation. But how often are we advised no to take certain offers? Well, not that often! So here is my most important tip for no-no-activities when traveling to Phuket/Thailand:
Do not take a speed boat out on the indian ocean to the Phi Phi islands! Ever. Period.
The Phi Phi islands are most known as the film set for the movie The Beach with Leonardo DiCaprio. Of course all tourists who travel to Thailand want to see this! Chalk white beaches and turquoise water. Everybody’s dream. But how to get there? We chose a speed boat trip with several stops for lunch and snorkeling. That 50min ride to the islands and 50min back were the worst minutes in my whole entire life. Half the people on the boat were puking before we were at the first island because the sea was so rocky and the driver of the boat was just nuts! On our way back we got into a storm which got some of the boats that were out with us that day to break down. I’m just glad we got out alive, like I said in my previous post, it’s probably only because of the Buddha bracelet!
But, however. We took some nice pictures at the beaches for 5 minutes which I still want to share with you ;) I hope you enjoy them, it took a lot to get there haha
