MAYA BAY

The incessant rains have the tendency to limit one's mobility outdoors, but also ushers in the mood for underrated pleasures like sleeping in, and cozying up with a good book, or simply penning down thoughts. Today, with the latter in effect, I want to share another batch of photographs from my Krabi-Koh Phi Phi visit.

But before I do, let me lay out my interim plans for this blog, given that I have pretty much gone against my word of finally being back in the blogosphere. My apologies there. I am reluctantly, but realistically moving out of the fashion/personal style scene to accommodate a travel & lifestyle angle, which have become a more intrinsic component in my recent posts. The occasional personal style entries will soon be restricted to Instagram only, which technically is a micro-blog. So let's say we've agreed on a don't ask, don't tell policy & let me proceed!

Having heard so much about Koh Phi Phi and its alluring Maya Bay, we planned our first Krabi trip around that island. Let me be straightforward with you. Maya Bay, during peak season, is uncomfortably crowded with a tiny little swimming area packed with a rainbow of tourists. Don't get me started on the washrooms. I stood in line for 20 minutes to answer nature's call because I obviously don't fancy emptying out my bladder in the sea (recommended by many!). However, the view to-and-from Maya Bay is b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l. Magical, even. 

Another surprise was Bamboo Island (Koh Mai Phai). With literally white sand and Baywatch blue waves, we spent about half an hour just capturing every inch of this island because we just couldn't believe our eyes.

The next stop was Koh Phi Phi Don where we re-filled our stomach on some authentic Thai island cuisine post which we lost our tour group after getting side tracked by the shopping street as usual. The day was well spent and well travelled, with our eyes and stomachs well feasted.
