When we got here this afternoon, we waited for the shutlle bus for 45 min and then the bus took us towards downtown…in the middle of the rush hour!!!! It was pretty intense! I think we stayed at the same spot for a good 30 min. At one point we decided it was too long, we got off the bus and started walking. It turned out it was as fast as the bus. The streets and sidewalks are soooo crowded here! It

Wow!
You won’t beleive your eyes when you’ll see the pictures on Phil’s website! Our hotel is the last one on the bach, a boat came to pick us up at
the pier and we had to jump on the water to get off it. The view from our room is just UNBELEIVABLE. We did an hour of kayak on the crystal clear
water for a big 3.50$ each and we are taking tons and tons of pictures…
Seriously, this is like Bora Bora here but cheaper!

"The" famous picture

I’ll write more details soon but this is paradise here! There
aren’t enougb words to describe how BEAUTIFUL it is here!!!
Come and join us!!!!
P.S. The Tsunami left a few scar in the village but i would say that 98% of the village is reconstructed….so no worries for those who are
coming to Thailand, this place still is paradise one year after Tsunami!

big day with many touristic places to visit and then big big shopping… Ihave a super long list!!

For those of you who are expecting postcards, we haven’t sent them yet, they’re written but we haven’t find an open post
