Day 3 in Phuket Thailand! This travel post is from last year when my boyfriend and I took a trip just before his birthday in May. On our third day, I had booked a full day trip where we would go island hopping covering 7 islands but the main attraction of the day was our stop over and lunch at the Similan Islands which are only opened for a few months of the year.
It was one of the best trips we'd been on while on a beach holiday and we had never seen such gorgeous azure blue waters. Highly recommended for those willing to spend a full day on an ocean trip! Keep in mind, none of my photos have been altered in any way! The colors are true to what my camera captured!

|Holiday Special: Day 3 in Patong, Phuket Thailand! (May 2016)|
|After an hour of waiting and travel time from our hotel to an office outside the city, our group were driven and dropped off here for our speedboat pick up!|
|We were a group of about 20 and were split into two boats.|
|Our long morning ride to our first island stop! It was almost a two hour ride as the Similan Islands are quite far off from Phuket!|
|The waters out in the Andaman Seas are just so serene, rich and peaceful!|
|The main attraction for the day! Just look at how clear the sand and the water is!|
|Similan Islands- although everything looks so peaceful the waves coming into shore were very strong!|
|Our gorgeous couple photo on Similan Islands courtesy of our awesome tour guide!|
|Similan Islands- She then asked us to jump and she got down and took this angled shot to make it look like I could actually jump more than a foot high!|
|Similan Islands- A shot of my boyfriend briskly walking into the amazingly blue waters!|
|Similan Islands- The clarity of the water is ridiculous! It's literally crystal clear for the first many meters from the shore!|
|Similan Islands- Simply breathtaking waters and views!|
|Similan Islands- A shot of my hot boyfriend walking out of the ocean like a gangster with those sunglasses!|
|Similan Islands- Taken with my boyfriend's phone! I really loved that my mint green bikini went with the water!|
|Similan Islands-My boyfriend just casually sitting on a branch completely drying off! Our dry bag was super handy as well as a lock & lock box for my camera and phones inside!|
|Our local lunch spread on the Similan Islands! We were super hungry by the time we made it for lunch so I had this plate and a bit more noodles!|
|Apparently my ugly face is just ugly!|
|Dinner back on the mainland! Back to Mr. Good's Seafood and here we got their awesome springrolls!|
|Mr. Good's Seafood tom yum soup! So filled with juicy prawns, fresh straw mushrooms and such a good balance in its seasoning!|
|Check out those juicy prawns and mushrooms! So good!|
|Beef fried noodles at Mr. Good's Seafood! I actually wanted to get brown kway teow noodles but didn't realize it was yellow noodles!|
|Mr. Good's Seafood "fried" squid which turned out to be stir fried but it was PERFECT. Soft, tender, seasoned so right that we weren't complaining about the fact it wasn't deep fried!|
|My ducky lipped boyfriend doing le quack! All around phuket were shops selling pillows like these and of other animals!|
|My favorite shot we took on the Similan Islands! Still in awe of how amazing the waters were!|
That was day 3 from my Phuket holiday last year! It was seriously one of the most amazing day trips and mother nature was just unrealistically beautiful!
