Diving Koh Phi Phi and Koh Lanta

by Elizabeth

Aside from chilling out, the primary purpose of our visits to Koh Phi Phi and Koh Lanta was to fit in a few scuba dives.  It had been over three years since we last went diving !  I guess we were too busy hiking on our last couple vacations to fit in any time under the water 😉  Getting in a few refresher dives when we finally got to Thailand took on new importance this last September when we finalized plans with my parents to meet them in January for a nine-day live aboard scuba trip to Raja Ampat in Indonesia.  We didn’t want to be fumbling around or hogging air on our first couple dives!

Thai Islands: Above Water
