Phuket Get-Away

Phuket Get-Away

One of my bucket list is to see “The Beach”. Many of you remember the movie that Leonardo DiCaprio did way back in 2000 ( yes I was about 10 yrs. old during that time) and the location they used is Kho Phi Phi ley or simply called the “Maya Bay” . I was captivated right away how beautiful that Paradise is. Finally after a decade I was able to go and see it for myself.

I was able to reach this destination thru Phuket. Maya Beach is actually located to Krabi Thailand. It takes about 1- 1/2 hours to get here from Phuket. I did do those 3 beach package that you can see around at Patong beach. I went to Bamboo Island and Maya Beach. ( Bamboo Island is another favorite of mine. I like it because there’s no much people compared to Maya Beach.

Moving on, I went here with my Fiance so to be more intimate we decided to stay In The Coconut Village, It was a private Island where you have to take a 10mnt boat ride from the Marina port Phuket ( Not to worry as the Island have their own boat and service is every 10mnts, till 10pm. so if you want to go out in Patong Beach you might want to book ahead of time )

The Beach Front of the Island. Truly private compared to Patong beach where I find it too crazy and crowded.
