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!
Approaching the Floating Village
Nearing the Village
The walkway to the restaurants is also on stilts
Having lunch with our newly made friends.
The Village School Playground, built over water
Houses on stilts.
The floating shopping street. You can see water from the little gaps on the ‘road’ sides.
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.
Yes, we went in there! had to lie down within the canoe to pass.
And in there too!
Looking back on others following where we came from.
Got to see this above as in many places – mesmerizing!
We were served a refreshing cold drink on the ship after the canoeing.
Leaving the lovely bay behind as we came back in the boat
Captain Sanika at the wheel
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!
