A throwback kind of post today here on Foodeva Marsay . This was not too long ago, when Imran and I travelled to Phuket,Thailand. The one thing you have to do when in Thailand, Is Island Hopping!!!
What you may ask is this about? Well even though Phuket has lots to see and do, there are many smaller islands surrounding Phuket, and the only way to get to some of these little treasures, is via boat. We enjoyed, and would recommend, taking a Speed Boat, to see these islands. It is just what the name of the boat suggests….IT IS HIGH SPEED. Be prepared for an exhilarating , even though BUMPY, ride of you Life. There are many boating companies that do these daily trips, most of which leave from the Royal Phuket Marina in the Phuket region we travelled to. Booking is rather easy, and can be done through your hotel concierge desk.
Another Thing to bear in mind, it is going to be crowded!!! Each boat takes about 10-15 people and a towel and swimwear is recommended. We only saw our sandals again when we returned to the dock at the marina late afternoon. There will be no need for sandals, as you will be getting on and off the boat at the various island stops. Another thing to remember is lots of sunblock, a waterproof protection for your cameras and if you can Scubs Dive, You would probably like to bring your own Scuba apparatus. Scuba Apparatus is available on boats if you don’t have one. A light meal is provided with refreshments on the boats.
Allow me to share with you all, these 2 videos I managed to capture, using a GoPro Hero4 , both these videos are best enjoyed on Full Screen Mode?.
The 1st one is 30 seconds long, just to let you experience what I did, though it was the end of the trip that day. I hope you enjoy.
And my second Video, was kindly captured with the help of Alec, who was one of our guides on the Speed Boat. Take a look at the video…We finally find “Nemo“?.
Enjoy my friends, till we Travel Through Lenses Again… I can’t wait to share all my travel Pictures with you?
