Phi Phi Island and The Big Buddha of Phuket

My friends and I decided to take a tour of the Phi Phi Islands which is also known for its wonderful snorkeling.  We got on a speedboat tour of the islands.  Apparently, the phi phi islands are well reknowned for many scenery shots in movies.  "The Beach" with Leonardo DiCaprio was shot here.

The trip by speedboat is about 45 minutes from Phuket and the water was pretty choppy.  I started to get sea sick.  After about 20 minutes, I had many close calls of throwing up but I was able to keep my cool.

On another day, we hired a driver for the day to tour around Phuket.

We visited the famous Big Buddha of Phuket.
