For an unforgettable day out...

"...Take a boat trip to visit the iconic ‘floating islands’ of Phang Nga Bay, just northeast of Phuket. It is easy to see why the inlet is a favourite stop for tourists and certainly one you won’t want to visit without your camera," Emma Brisdion on a beginners guide to island hopping in Thailand.

I had the best two years of my life travelling around Thailand, and experiencing its beautiful culture. I spent a lot of my time on the east coast island of Koh Tao. Its an absolute tropical paradise, and a Mecca for SCUBA divers!
