Journey to the Mysterious Island
If you haven’t watched it yet, go grab a blu-ray copy of it now and feast your senses!
It’s an amazing movie with advanced visuals, top-quality special effects and beautiful scenery!
And of course, an awesome story!
OK, back to today’s entry.
Previously, I blogged about taking a cruise on the high seas.
We were travelling around Asia.
For those who’re interested;
This is Part 3
The Mysterious Island
Done admiring the beauty of mother nature’s geography? On to the history lesson! (LOL – Bad joke)
One of the many places we stopped by to visit was Thailand.
Thailand is often called the “land of smiles,” not only because visitors love its natural beauty and historical riches, but also because of the country’s friendly people and fascinating culture.
Thailand is a Buddhist nation, and because Buddhist values are such a part of daily life here, temples, monasteries and Buddha images are seen everywhere.
Upon disembarking, we took a shuttle to the city center before boarding another bus heading toward the pier.
After we reached the pier, we had to take a jetboat/speedboat.
I prefer to call it ‘water taxi‘.
This ‘taxi’ was to ferry us to The Mysterious Island, somewhere right in the middle of the big blue ocean.
After passing through swamps/marshes, caves and under limestone formations, not to mention the open seas as well, we finally arrived!
The marshes & swamps we passed through before arriving;
And the caves!
Upon arriving, we’re greeted by many small huts or stalls setup by villagers who settled on the other not-so mysterious islands nearby. Apparently, they row their boat here daily to peddle their wares.
It’s hot, it’s sunny, it’s a tropical island!~
A distinctive feature of this famous bay is the number of sheer limestone cliffs that vertically jut out of the emerald-green water.
A huge formation, made naturally and entirely of limestone.
That’s it! We’re done!
I hope you enjoyed the post!
Stay tuned for Part 4!
We’ll be going swimming!
Enjoy the pictures of the beautiful islands!
