Maya bayFebruary 19, 2017 in Thailand
I am officially running out of descriptive words!! This place is stunningly beautiful, the crystal clear water is sheltered by 100-metre high cliffs. The downside is, its packed with tourists! They reckon that at any given time there is probably about 30 plus speedboats visiting.
It was still incredible to see. This is where the movie,the Beach, (with Leonardo de Caprio) was filmed.
Me and Roedolf swam out quite deep to escape the crowds and have a couple of moments of pure beauty to ourselves.
We spend about an hour here, then we were gathered like sheep again to get back on the boat. We did enjoy it but we don't like competing with the crowds. We love off the beaten track, probably out of selfishness.
Our Similan and Siren islands visits were way more idyllic probably also because we were there when the crowds have departed.
