Ko Phi Phi, Phuket, and the Andaman Sea
Paradise, or Paradise lost?
Ah, Southern Thailand. The Malay Peninsula. An incredible stretch of land, with archipelagos and blue seas on either side. It’s most often stereotyped as a tropical paradise, though a growing school of thought that the over travelled nature of this place has had negative effects on both the physical beauty and cultural soul of Southern Thailand.
As you’ll see from these pictures there’s still a unimaginable amount of beauty here. You lose some authenticity with occasional big crowds and bars with club music cranked to 11 – but this is still Thailand. For better or for worse (I can’t tell you which), it’s what parts of Thailand have become.
On to the pictures: Phuket, Ko Phi Phi, Maya Bay…three islands that are well travelled, but full of life.
