Khai Islands Thailand

Visit the Khai Islands Thailand

The Khai Islands in Thailand are easily accessed by boat. While in Thailand we decided to take the half day tour which featured a speedboat ride, snorkeling, swimming, and snacks. The tours can be purchased on the street in Phuket where we were staying. I would suggest not using your hotel because they do not generally give discounts. We used Phuket P.H Tour and we were able to get the tour price down to the children's entry instead of the adults. Khai Islands Thailand If you take the 3 Khai Island's Tour in Thailand you need to know that you will have to get in a car to go to the … [Read more...]
