At the beginning of 2019 we were very impatient because in just a few days we were going on the journey of our lives. We ordered with the German company Berge & Meer a combined trip: 1 week cruise Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Khasab and Muscat and from there we were to fly to Thailand to enjoy the Indian Ocean in Khao Lak.

We paid 1400 euros per person for this whole combined holiday, and during the cruise we had all inclusive, while in Thailand we had breakfast included. Is very cheap to eat in Thailand so it was ok just with breakfast,because during the day we where always far away from the hotel.The only problem here is that, of course, I did not have visits included, so we had to take some more money out of our wallets for them.

As we have already presented in another article the cruise in the United Arab Emirates, now we will write about the second part of this combined trip, the experience in Thailand.

We ordered our trips with the Viator and Get Your Guide.

Our first trip was to James Bond Island. Almost all the tourists chose this holiday because they were curious about the place where everything was filmed. After we left the island, our boat took us to a beautiful area, where we took the kayak. and then saw some beautiful landscapes and caves:

We befriended our tour guides, so the next day we went with them to show us some beautiful places in Khao Lak: White Sand Beach and then we went to Bamboo Rafting.

The next day we continued the same way, with our good friends Ying and Few we saw some beautiful places that only the locals know about:Andaman View Point,a wonderful waterfall,some temples and our day endet with an amazing dinner near a lake.

The next day we visited the Khao Lak turtle shelter.

We spent the fifth day of our trip away from Khao Lak. We drove to Phuket Island at 5 in the morning. From there we set off by speed boat for an hour to Phi Phi Islands,Maya Bay,Monkeys Island , Bamboo Island and RangYai Island.

These islands are a dream!

The next day we spent it with our friends, riding scooters through Khao Lak and then we went to the Night Market. We tasted food from the locals and bought clothes and souvenirs for our loved ones and for us.

On the last day of our wonderful trip we enjoyed the company of the elephants at Sairung Elephant Camp. It was a beautiful day when we rode, washed the elephants and fed them. An unforgettable experience!
