Xmas in Thailand

Well our last day of volunteering was xmas day. So after school we headed back to the island of Koh Lanta. My son Travis had some vacation time so he met up with us in Thailand. Thailand is a great place to spend Xmas.

We wanted to check out some more of the island. So we rented some scoters and cruised around the island. I wish I had some pictures of the first 30 minutes of our ride. it started dumping rain. We looked like we just got out of the ocean by the time we made it to Old Town.

You make a wish when you let these go. They are really popular in Thailand.

The next day we headed to Krabi. It is so beautiful along the coast of Krabi.

These longtail boats are great. They will take you over to the beautiful beach of Railay.

I longtail boats are also great to set up a kitchen.

I love eating off the street carts. It’s great food for next to nothing.

We came across this tatoo shop in Aunang. They do the traditional Bamboo tatoo’s. So Travis had to get one.

It took a couple of sittings but came out amazing.

I had to put a picture of the tatoo artists car. A classic 68 SS Camaro. I never thought I’d see one of these in Thailand.

We decided we wanted to check out the Phi Phi Islands. We knew it would be real touristy. But we also knew it would be beautiful. So we headed there to spend New Years. You can jump on a ferry in Krabi that will get you to Phi Phi in about 90 minutes.

There was a school right next to our hotel. Here are the kids getting out of school.

All the hotels are on Phi Phi Don. But the best part to see is on Phi Phi Lei.Where the movie The Beach was filmed. So we jumped on a longtail boat and headed to Phi Phi Lei.

We found out the best time to check out this island is at the end of the day when all the tour boats have headed back. We rented our own private longtail. It was great. There was hardly anybody out there.
