Phuket Island and area, January 2019

Phuket Island in the south of Thailand has become a very popular beach destination. It is as beautiful as always, but the number of tourists is a bit much for us, so we’re only overnighting on the way in, and then driving to the north.

Nai Yang Beach, Phuket in the early morning.

So, we drove about 2 hours north to Khao Lak Beach

Morning walk on Khao Lak beach. You can walk 10 miles north or south!

There are several national parks nearby, so we drove to one and hiked to a waterfall

Another day, we joined an all-day trip out to the Surin Islands to snorkel.

Leaving Khao Lak, we headed southeast to Khao Sok National Park.

    We spent the night in a floating tent on the Khao Sok lake/reservoir, and hiked to a cave. It was wonderful.
