2017 Stampin' Up! Incentive Trip to Thailand: Day 3 and 4 Phang Nga Bay, Koh Panyee Floating Village and Rang Yai Island
This was an epic day! A full day speedboat tour out on Phang Nga bay.
We were transported to the pier in a fleet of 20 buses, and loaded into speedboats (about 30 to a boat) for the start of our Island hopping.
Our first stop was Koh Panyee Floating Village. It was beautiful scenery around and approaching the village, but I have to admit feeling a bit funny visiting so close to peoples homes and a school that was in classes. I hope the village benefits a lot from the tourism. One highlight though was the floating football pitch. It was fun to get a group photo of our speedboat group.
Next we went to a pontoon where those who wanted could canoe around some of the island coves. My youngest wasn't so keen so we stayed on the pontoon taking photographs.
We sailed past James Bond Island (where the Bond movie 'The Man with the Smoking Gun' featuring Roger Moore was filmed in the 70's) Our final stop was a beautiful little private island (called Rang Yei Island) where we had a buffet lunch under the shade of trees right on the waters edge. The water temperature was amazing and there were lots of deck chairs to just sit and admire the view. It was a fabulous relaxing afternoon.
We were all so exhausted by the time we got back to the pier and then back to the hotel. It was time for a swim, a room service dinner and a relaxing night. I tried the Penang Curry which definitely turned the chilli up a notch or two - wowsers! Still delicious though.
Our pillow gift tonight was a beautiful bag and 2 packs of new Designer Series Paper (which I can't reveal just yet :( ). I can show you the bag though. I love it!
Day 4 (Thursday) was another relaxation day for us. More time in the pool, lunch at the poolside restaurant (and then a huge Monsoon storm came in). In the afternoon I had another spa treatment. In the afternoon I had another spa treatment (Reflexology this time).
Late afternoon there was a Share Fair on where 6 demonstrators showcased product from the Holiday Catalogue (can't show you these pictures yet sorry :(
For dinner we caught the shuttle bus to do some souvenir shopping and have dinner outside the resort. Tonight's pillow gift was some more Holiday Catalogue product which I can show you next week.
Back in a day or two with the final post. Until then, be happy!
