Approaching the magnificent limestone islands of Phang Na Bay. The islands were shrouded in fog just moments before this photo was taken.
Our boat. We were very lucky to book a small tour with just a few people.
Mia, Monica, and our trusty guide, J.J..
Most of the large island contain caves, called "Hongs", which is Thai for "rooms". The Roofs of the hongs have collapsed, leaving the interior open and day-lit. The only way to access the hongs is through caves like this one.
The interior of the hongs are lush and peaceful. Some are homes to bats and monkeys, isolated from the outside world.
Monica is overwhelmed with peace and tranquility.
The floors of the hongs are muddy--a reminder that Phang Na Bay was once dry land thousands of years ago.
The enormous root structure of these trees are submerged at high tide.
Mia and Mommy are quite comfortable on our inflatable raft.
J.J. and Mia quickly become pals.
A substantial hong interior.
Jason seems to be enjoying himself.
Mommy takes the camera.
Some rooms appear to end, but a journey by foot often reveals another chamber.
Monica and Mia overlooking Kata Beach.
I think Leonardo DeCaprio swam to this one.
This Mantis landed in Monica's hair. I snapped this pic before letting it go.
Our elephant guide. At one point, he jumped off and disappeared into the woods. He later rejoined us and took some photos.
our guide even had an umbrella for Monica.
