The beach! We were running out of days and not ready to race a two day bus journey south to Phuket so we flew from Chiang Mai to Phuket Island in search of the beach. Because it was high season and because we found a very nice and very affordable hotel in Phuket Town we stayed there three days, taking buses out to two different beaches a short distance from the town. We also took a ferry to the Ko Phi Phi islands, famous for it's gorgeous white sand beaches, crystal clear water and the cliffs that surround the island. This is also where the movie 'The Beach' was filmed.

First stop, snorkeling. You could see the fish from the boat the water was so clear.
