Thailand – the land of smiles

My main activity in Thailand was indeed diving but I also had some time to see some of Phuket, Phi Phi Don and Phi Phi Leh (on which is the famous Maya bay known from the movie The Beach with Leonardo DiCaprio), Bamboo island and Similian islands where I did most of my diving. Phi Phi is recovering well after the December 2004 tsunami and you can hardly find some evidence of that event. Phi Phi is very crowded place full of tourists but it is a pleasant place to stay. On the island there are no roads just walkways. The beaches are amazing!!! Only white sand and clear tropical water with temperatures around 30°C oh and abundance of marine life. You can go snorkeling just off the coast and you will see huge amounts of fish and corals. There are also many more islands and beaches that are as good as Phi Phi or even better but are not so popular or famous so there you can find some more peaceful places. People in Thailand are also very friendly.
