Phuket Trip Day 4

Day 4 was another fun day. At least there were no more hard boat bumping and salty water creeping into my eyes and mouth. 

Early in the morning, we were picked up when we were having our breakfast at hotel. We gathered at Ao Por Grand Mariana and cruised to Hong Island as our first destination. 

This time it was a big cruise, carrying food, canoes, and of course us! 

It was a long journey (around one hour plus). So we were served with carbonated drink and biscuits. 

While we were busy taking pictures,

Alicia and Yee Voon went for tattoo-ing.

Along the journey, we did not forget to enjoy the picturesque scenery around us as well. 

Our first destination was a mangrove swamp. We couldn't reach it but need to paddle canoes into the small cave and then went in. I screamed like hell the moment I walked down to the canoe, as the canoe kept shaking with me kept shaking the canoe hard. =.= After seconds of screaming, then only I calmed down a bit and was assisted by crew to paddle inside the mangrove swamp. 

We stopped our canoe at the entrance of a small cave and waded through the water to reach the mangrove swamp. 

It has nothing much there except the muddy mangrove swamp! We spent a few minutes there taking photos and made our way back to the canoe and cruise. 

This time I was less afraid and could paddle on our own without the crew's assistance.

After Hong Island, we made our way to Panak Island. It is an island full of serene lagoons and magnificent limestones. 

And the best limestone is James Bond 2 Island. 

Later you can judge if this looks similar to the real James Bond Island
comparing to the pictures below. 
Soon it was lunch time! We were served with succulent Thai cuisine onboard! 

At the same time, the cruise was propelling us towards James Bond Island. 

Unfortunately, it was raining cats and dogs when we reached James Bond Island. We sheltered ourselves few minutes and decided to take pictures eventually. 

The rain then started to subdue, but we had been soaked in rain! For your information, James Bond Island is famous because the movie James Bond was filmed there. Its other names are Khao Phing Kan and Ko Tapa. 

After James Bond Island, we headed to our last destination for the island tour that is Phang Nga Bay! We spent a quality time of 40 minutes there canoeing! Some other tourists were swimming. The crew even relaxed themselves playing among themselves in the water too. 

Alvin and Me

Shane and Yee Voon
This time we were totally enjoying being on the sea canoeing. We even canoed to a place slightly farther than the crew's sight control, and they yelled us back! 

Joyful time ended very soon. We paddled back to the cruise reluctantly. 

While on the way back to the quay, the crew performed an eye-opening "Lady Boy" show couple with lip-singing! 

Alvin was the most enjoying one!
All the tourists were enjoying a lot and made quite some cheers. 

After back to our hotel, we just filled up our stomach with Thai instant noodles and then were lying down to enjoy Thai massage just next to our hotel! 

The 2-day island tour was really my ever best island tour in my life so far! Until now, the every moment of joy is still etched in my heart.
