My holiday in Thailand – 4

It’s been a while since I finished my trip to Thailand, and I’m telling you from the bottom of my heart I can not wait to get back there. I’m already doing some plans on this, but I’ll tell you about them later when they are shaping. Now I go back to my vacation memories and I’m preparing to take the private boat to take me and my husband to some more hidden, less crowded beaches and incredibly beautiful water.

It was on April 13th. I forgot to tell you that between the 13th and the 15th of April, the Thai New Year’s Day – Songkran is celebrated. We would expect many beautiful surprises in Ao Nang in the afternoon. With eyes still stuck to a quick night’s sleep, here we were in front of the hotel picked up by a person sent by the agency from which I bought the trip (I generally bought all excursions from travel agencies, someone takes you from the hotel, and when you return, you are left in the same place. Although not a rule, most agencies do so).

We arrived in a small harbor where we moved into a long tail boat and left again on the sea for gorgeous destinations, just the two of us and three boatmen, plus the omnipresent mango fresh.

 

 

The first stop was on a very beautiful island with white and fine sand but rather crowded, called Chicken Island.

 

Our boatmen, young boys (one of them not older than 12 years old), very friendly, shared our snorkeling equipment. Eh … here my adventure and fight with the waves began in an attempt to survive for several minutes underwater, helped only by a snorkel – a water-breathing tube and a mask that had to cover the eyes and nose and not to allow water penetrate inside. The thing seemed very simple, and everyone around me did that and they seemed very relaxed, but for me the pain started. I can tell you that the Andaman Sea is saltier than the Black Sea, in fact, it is very salty. I swallowed so much water that I was on the brink of abandoning it. All the more so as my husband could do this and I felt terrible!!! I suddenly remembered the days when I was back in the country and I wanted to see the colorful fish at all costs and I was just waiting to get to Thailand to do this and, after repeated attempts, you can see the result here:

 

This moment being successfully overtaken, the world was all mine, of course, underwater world. It’s hard to get out of the water, because those who accompany us with the boat had other plans for us. We went to another place where water was deeper and where we fed the fish. One of the boys who accompanied us descended to the bottom of the sea and brought us a sea hedgehog and a pearl shell. I admired them and let them go into the water.

There followed another beach, Poda, where we went and had lunch – absolutely delicious Thai food in the shade of palm trees. Here I saw the whitest sand in my life, as if I was living a dream, in fact, everything was happening very quickly.

We went back to the boat where our boys were waiting for us with a cool, very tasty watermelon that perfectly blended with the 43 air degrees. It was a very beautiful day with unique experiences. Happy to have had snorkeling in the Andaman Sea, we went back to Ao Nang, where everyone was water fighting in honor of Songkran. We had made researches about what this holiday meant and we were ready to celebrate the Thai New Year adventure like this:

 

Armed with a large water gun, we started the feast of water in which everyone splashed everybody. Everyone danced and laughed down the street, throwing jets of water from where you expected less: from well-camouflaged hoses, large and very large guns, full of eyes with amused youngsters, barreled with water barrels and buckets, as well as from various containers where you could put water. I saw a boy using a bowl taken from the terrace of our restaurant (it was quite a surprise that we stayed at a hotel that was the center of entertainment in Ao Nang). Generally, the water was hot because of the outside temperature, but there were unfortunate cases when some woke up with a bucket of iced water in the head.

Some, less conservative, combined the useful with the pleasant.

 

Fortunately, we got away safe and we had a very beautiful experience. All this madness ended late after midnight. Even after that time there was a delayed man who wanted to empty his gun with water by throwing it to you. I do not have to say that no one has entered dried in the hotel room, only the money and the phones have been well protected in the waterproof hoods. We ended the evening no other than on the terrace of our hotel, accompanied by the band that attracted tourists as a magnet and delicious Asian food.

I will come back in the next few days with new memories from Thailand, and if you plan such a vacation and need advice, I offer them with love. Until next time, farewell!

  1. […] Half an hour later we were wet from head to toe, with the clothes clinging to us, with camouflaged camera in seven bags, with telephones hidden beneath the tuk-tuk seats and … very close to our hotel. I looked at my husband and exclaimed, “We’re still here, he’s crazy, he’s been playing us the whole time”. We waited for more 10 minutes and observed that where there were young men with water buckets, he was slowing down, they were getting funny and pouring water directly into my head, because the vehicle we were going on had only a roof. We did not understand what was going on. It was becoming pretty clear that he had understood exactly the opposite, that we wanted to walk the streets so that children would have fun. I do not have many pictures with us attacked from all directions, because the technical equipment was well sheltered. The experience was the same as in Thailand. […]
