Thailand III (March 2016)

     For the last part of out Thailand trip we went to a place that was absolutely stunning. Never have I imagined that you could just pick a picture on Pinterest and actually go there... But that is exactly what we did. I first saw Santhiya Koh Yao Yai resort , like many other pins on my Pinterest page. But then when the time came to book our trip I thought... why the hell not?  We do only live once and if possible, why shouldn't we pick only the best for us!?

     And it truly was! The best!!

     These few pictures here are just quick unedited snaps, they don't do it any justice, but I wasn't very in tune with the photographer in me so that's all I have to show. You will have to take my word for it though... It was stunning. Just like all those images on Pinterest and more!

     Just a short boat ride away from Phuket we found ourselves on Koh Yao Yai Island. Our baby slept through the entire time. No trouble at all! As soon as we arrived to our room we couldn't contain our happiness and excitement. We literally kept going around thinking this can't be real... It took us a couple of days for it to sink in that we really were in this idilic location...

     We really enjoyed ourselves, took turns to go to the pool and have ourselves some much anticipated thai massages, we took long afternoon naps with our little one, got to go out on a trip to Phi Phi island, the uber famous Maya beach, but enjoyed the more remote locations far better, we snorkelled, had a picnic on an isolated beach, overall we couldn't believe our eyes. So much beauty!

     The service, the ambiance, the decor, the pools, the massages... Oh boy! I wholeheartedly recommend this special place...

Thailand II (March 2016)


      Here's the second batch of photos I took on our trip to Phuket in March, a stroll through the old town, a lot of people watching, good food, demonstrations of coconut use, rubber tree, rice, curry making, traditional buffalo plowing, elephant trekking. I know what most people think about the elephants being abused in the name of tourism, but honestly the ones here were treated really well, each had their own care taker and looked quite... happy... :D

     It was a really lovely experience, I am glad we got to take a package like this, because  otherwise we would have never had the time to have a taste of thai culture.
