Beach Bums!

Soakin up some rays

Today we arrive in the BEAUTIFUL beach town of phuket. We are spending three days here on the beach relaxing and enjoying the paradise that is this city. Where else can you see more then 10 beaches in the same area! There is over 540 square feet of beach here! Its incredible. The warm weather is all year round with a rainy season for half the year, I cant imagine this place ever not looking less then perfection.


We found out that the movie “The Beach” was filmed in Thailand on the paradise beach, I mean we will literally be standing in the same spot Leonardo Dicaprio did. I mean it was like 10 years ago but its still pretty cool to think about.

So today we are keeping it low key and only hitting one beach. Keri went to the local food market and got to talking with a local thai man who told her that Chalong bay beach is the best beach in Phuket to go to, there are not to many people there and the beach is beautiful so after some dinner that Keri picked up at the market (Thai noodles with curry and river fish, a staple for the locals) we are packin our beach bags and heading for the surf!Paradise_b..Yao_Noi.jpg
