Pang Nga Bay

Pang Nga Bay is exactly what I pictured Thailand to look like- Islands everywhere!

We booked our Pang Nga Bay tour through Simba Sea Trips and they were the best! Our group on the boat was really small so it kind of felt like a private tour. We left bright and early from the pier around 7:00am which was nice because we were the first ones out on the water and had every beach spot completely to ourselves.

We went to a bunch of different stops throughout the day and saw so many beautiful places! First, we stopped at a place called Koh Phanak to tour a cave. The beach area had monkeys on it and we fed them some fruit.

They gave us hats and flashlights to use as we explored inside of a cave.

At the end of the cave, there was a little hidden lagoon. So pretty!

We hopped back in the speedboat to go to the next stop. Do you see all of the islands? Crazy!

Next, we arrived at a place that had kayaks waiting for us. We hopped in the kayaks and our guides rowed us through the islands so that we could get a closer look. This was my favorite part of the day!

There were some jellyfish in the water here. Dallin tried to record one with the GoPro but in doing so he accidentally got stung :/ Oops!

We got to explore a few more caves in our kayaks.

Once we got back to the speed boat, we headed off to see James Bond Island.

Looking back at these pictures really makes me miss the beach life (especially since I'm writing this from my apartment in Boston and staring at the snow outside!) and spending all day in a swim suit. Speaking of swim suits, Seafolly has my favorite! I bought two Seafolly swimsuits (here) for this trip and loved them (I bought them on amazon (here) because they were cheaper but Anthropologie (here) also sells them).

After James Bond Island, they took swimming at a hidden cove called Treasure Island. We jumped in the water and explored around. We swam under a little cave and got to a hidden little beach. It was really cool! I don't have any pictures of it, but there's a small clip of it somewhere in our Thailand video (here).

We then ate lunch on another island called Koh Yao Noi at this delicious Thai restaurant. We took cars to the restaurant and on the way saw tons of monkeys on leashes which was weird. But, apparently they have trained the monkeys to pick coconuts.

After lunch, we went to another beach to swim. This beach was surrounded by tons of islands on all sides of course.

We then did one last stop to snorkel and swim before heading home. 

We seriously loved this tour! We saw so much and it really felt like the Thailand I have always pictured :)
