Rain Season in Thailand

On our second day in Koh Phi Phi we had a bit of rain in the morning. Good thing we had to check out of the most remote hostel ever and find another place to stay. 


The rest of the day was actually pretty clear, and surprisingly the streets were completely dry by mid afternoon with absolutely no trace of floods from earlier that morning.
We took advantage of this beautiful weather and went on our first official scuba diving trip outside of Australia.


Saw our first turtle within the first 5 minutes of our first dive


And proceeded to stalk it for pretty much the rest of the dive


Diving in Phi Phi was very different from the Great Barrier Reef in Australia. The coral in Thailand was a huge let down after getting spoiled by the flawless and colourful coral reefs in the GBR. Most of the reefs here were destroyed a few years back by various natural disasters and copious amounts of careless tourists. 
I did get what I came there for though - TURTLES!
