Phuket Day 4 – Phang Nga Bay Excursion – Part 2

Continued from Part 1

We headed to the Muslim floating village. The village is attached to an island rock with the village mosque and graveyard on the island (that is on lad), the rest of the village is on stilts – the houses, the school, the restaurants, the shopping area and all!

Beautiful views of the bay seen all the way from the boat.

We moved onwards to a lovely spot in the ocean where a huge liner was anchored in the middle of nowhere and served a rental shop for canoes. We climbed into the huge ship, wore our life jackets and stepped onto the sea canoes, agreeing to click each other’s pictures and email them as it was impossible to click our own.

 This was a memorable day indeed! We came back to the hotel. Sanika was so tired, she slept at 5 in the evening and woke up the next day! Leaving Phuket the next day seemed even more diffcult after this wonderful experience. On to Bangkok now!
