Phuket, Thailand was our destination today.   

Hong by Starlight Sea Cave Kayaking and Loy Krathong Floating

We booked a took with John Gray's 10 hour long boat ride from Phuket.

We discovered the hidden “hong” lagoons and sea caves of Phang Nga Bay.  After lunch on the boat, our guide paddled us  through Koh Panak Cave and the caves and lagoons around Hong Island. x

Our guide helped each of us make our own “Krathong” offering arrangement to float in Koh Panak Cavelater this evening.  These are made from banana leaves and orchids.
