Phang Nga Bay, Thailand
We all welcomed a chance to relax a bit in the sun, by the pool or at one of the more secluded beaches, when we got the Phuket Island. Nonetheless, I felt we just had to explore Phang Nga Bay, to the north of Phuket. On the very last day we were all together, we splurged on a magnificent full-day boat and kayak trip to the bay: lunch and dinner on board a bigger, comfy boat that took us from karst island to karst island, where we then hopped into guided, paddled kayaks (2 people per kayak, though Steve got one to himself) for tours through the limestone caves and cliff-bordered lagoons in the interior of the islands. It was a spectacular day, as you can see from the pictures.
